A solar pest repellent is an electronic device you stick in your yard to ward off small animals. The solar pest repellent is charged by the sun,allowing you to plant it and let it work without the need to tend it. Solar pest repellents provide a vibration, ultrasonic pulse, or light flash to keep birds, ground animals and other pets at bay. They are harmless to humans and to animals. Solar pest repellents are also chemical-free and environmentally friendly. Consider how much area the solar pest repellent you buy can cover. You may need more than one for effective coverage of your ground or lawn space. Also check the method of repelling. The lighted repellers may be more effective for predators or larger animals.
