    They might work for a while after you put them up, but given a little time the predators will get use to them and then they will come and not pay any attention to them.

    I bought the Night Guard solar light, which blinks on and off. We haven't had anything try and get to our chickens, but then again, their coop and run is inside a fenced in backyard which is also patrolled by a dog. They say that you need to move it around.

    I hunt at night I use a red light to give me a better shot the animals never see the red light.

    I use two dusk to dawn flood lights to light up the stables and coop, but mine is for bats too so YMMV. I wouldn't waste my money on those predator lights.

    honestly,and im not trying to be sarcastic here,i would take that money and invest it in some live traps.
    in the long run they will offer better protection.
    just like wvfoxhunter said,the lights MAY work at first.but soon anything thats coming around will get use to them.
    when that happens,you will still have a preditor problem.
