If you live in an area like California, where space is scarce and expensive, you probably don’t have a basement or attic in your home. And your garage is pretty much jammed to the hilt with “stuff.” So you bought one of those metal storage sheds and you assembled it in your side yard or back yard. It’s probably packed with lawn feed, a lawnmower and other garden tools--all safe from the elements.
But unless you live in the city, you’ll have critters—possum, rabbits, squirrels, rats, moles, raccoons and, heaven forbid, skunks—working their way under the soil to seek refuge from the weather and bear their young inside your shed. You could place traps and poisons in and around your shed, but if you’ve got pets or kids, that’s not such a good idea.
Fortunately, there is a humane, inexpensive animal deterrent that will keep critters away from your shed. It’s called the Bird-B-Gone Sonic Shield™.
Two Animal Deterrents in One--Light and Sound
Proven effective in many applications, the Bird-B-Gone Sonic Shield™ discourages all manner of winged and four–legged critters from snooping around your shed. It uses a motion sensor to activate two deterrents the second a critter crosses its area of protection. Once activated, a dog barking sound and flashing LED light scare critters away.
Your Day or Night Sentry
For added flexibility, the Sonic Shield™ has a daytime and nighttime mode of operation. In the daytime mode, flashing LED lights and loud barking dog sounds work in unison to frighten all types of critters from your shed. In the nighttime mode, it’s only the flashing LED lights—ideal for areas where night noises would wake up the neighbors. In either mode, the Sonic Shield™ offers a cost-effective way to get rid of winged and four-legged critters. It’s also more effective than those ultrasonic deterrents, which emit sounds your average critter can’t hear.
Goes Where the Critters Appear
Critters often try and work their way into a shed in different places. The Sonic Shield™ is self-contained, portable and goes wherever critters attempt to sneak in. It runs on four standard AA batteries, which means you’ll always have a deterrent in suspected critter entry points. No need for AC hookups, or such undesirable deterrents as pellet guns, traps, smelly mothballs or cat urine.
Add Plastic Bird Spikes to Keep Birds Off
To keep birds from unloading all over your new shed, consider adding some Plastic Bird Spikes. The spiked strips won’t allow birds to land on or near them. They have pre-drilled holes or glue troughs for quick installation. And they come in two-foot sections and 3-, 5- and 7-inch widths. The best plastic spikes are made of unbreakable UV-protected polycarbonate, so they’ll last season after season outdoors. They even come in a variety of colors—including crystal clear, brick red, light grey, brown, black and tan—so they’ll blend right in with your shed’s color.
