    I've used these and they are really helpful, I was downstairs when the light turned on and there was a Fox and i was able to shoo it away!

    I thought the idea was that the light was supposed to scare the predator away. :)

    I suggest you get live Traps and put Tuna in them, that's how you get rid of a Predator, the light has scared of a skunk and a few rats before so it might scare them off!

    I've used a live trap successfully, but was just wondering about these to add to the arsenal. :)

    I don't think too many predators would worry about a light for very long; a waste of money, IMO. Mary

    I'll add that I have those flashing red anti-predator lights installed on all four sides of my coop and run. Given that my entire flock was devoured last week by coons, I don't have much faith in them.
