Does not work
The raccoons just bypass this and come right into my garden even when the bird feeders are taken in and the fountain is no longer there. This is not only a problem for my flowers by they seem to feel it is OK to use my garden as a place to do their business. I tried using this unit for several months and there has been NO success. We plugged it in instead of using battery power...this made no difference. Traps must be the next resort or a good exterminator. Don't waste your money !.

Still have raccoon problems
We are trying to give this product a fair test but so far we still have our nightly raccoon problem even when the bird-feeders are taken in for the evening. He even comes before dark, one evening at 5PM ! I'm afraid we are going to have to resort to a Havahart trap.

Be patient and it will work.
We often have as many as 6 or 7 squirrels in our small backyard. In the first week I moved the YardGard three times to get the location that would get the most "hits." The red light makes it easy to know when it is activated. For two weeks we saw no improvement. Then during the third week we began to see fewer squirrels. After nearly a month, we are down to only one squirrel and he/she may be deaf! I am pleased with the product. It worked for me.

this product has not worked on rabbits.
We put the item on our fence 3 feet from the ground.about 3 weeks ago. Rabbits are eating our garden just like the product wasn't there.

Rabbits are gone! After using every product on the market, this is the only one that works! We use it plugged in only. Worked right away!
