Havahart® Electronic Deer Repellent
One of our most innovative products, Havahart® has created a
portable and wireless repellent designed specifically for deer and guaranteed to work!
Havahart’s Electronic Deer Repellent uses a unique, patented technology that gives deer a harmless, static shock to condition them to avoid your yard and leave your landscape intact.
No need for unsightly and expensive fencing solutions that compromise your landscape, Havahart’s Electronic Deer Repellent works just like a wireless electronic fence, providing an unobtrusive, silent solution to destructive deer! Economical, one package contains 3 posts, covering up to 1,200 sq. ft. and lasting season after season. The Electronic Deer Repellent is also a waterproof, year-round solution, making it ideal for protecting your property even in the harsh winter.
How It Works:
Havahart’s Electronic Deer Repellent works by taking advantage of the deer’s heightened sensitivity to smell by attracting them to the individual posts with sweet acorn scented lure and a red top which mimics an irresistible azalea. When the curious deer contact the post, the Electronic Deer Repellent delivers a mild shock startling the deer and training the animal to avoid your property. Proper placement is important -- posts should be positioned around deer entries, paths, and around plants they like.
Invented by a veterinarian, the electronic deer repellent creates a psychological barrier that manipulates instinctual behaviors to keep deer off your property, without the use of harmful chemicals. As a result, the Electronic Deer Repellent is a natural solution that is safe for deer, pets and your family.
After deer have been conditioned to avoid certain areas of your property, the units can be moved to protect newly emerging plants or leave them in their current position to ward off new deer that may come into your area. And because the batteries last up to 1 year, the product is virtually maintenance free. Just reapply the powerful acorn scented lure weekly.
For best results in high pressure areas, Havahart’s Electronic Deer Repellent works well as part of an integrated deer repellent system – use it with other spray deer repellents and electronic deer sprinkler repellents to increase your level of protection.
Additionally, at the onset of its use, it's important to use deterrent sprays to help protect your property during the training period.
Easy To Setup, Easy To Use:
The Electronic Deer Repellent is portable, effective and easy to use.
Step 1: Insert cotton ball into lure holder and place a few drops of the acorn scented lure at each end of holder. Ensure that the inner pair of wires (electrodes) do not contacting the outside pair of wires. (This will create a dead short and not allow the units to charge). If you find them touching; gently adjust them away from each other until there is a small gap between them in all areas.
Step 2: Install 2 AA batteries (Caution: unit is now activated)
Step 3: Using the foot tab, press the stake into the ground at the desired location – ensure the foot tab is flush.
How Many Posts Are Needed?
The number of posts required varies by:
- The amount of vegetation in your yard that deer like
- The number or density of deer in your area
- The size of the area you want to protect
- The number of deer paths into your yard
(One package contains 3 posts covering up to 1,200 sq. ft.). Generally, you want 1 post between 5 and 20 feet apart depending on the above variables.
Where to Place Posts:
Before positioning posts, carefully note all existing damage and determine if it is indeed deer and not rabbits damaging your plants. Hint: Rabbits don’t leave tracks and only eat things close to the ground.
First, place posts on the perimeter of your property (on deer trails) – this will intercept deer on their way into your property.
Additionally, position posts in interior areas where you see deer damage and where the deer is most likely to find it. For example:
- On and around deer paths and entries into your yard
- In and around plants that deer like and you wish to protect
- Any other place where tracks or droppings are observed
Deployment & Training Your Deer:
When setting up your posts, the goal is to place them in an area where you have the highest chance of interaction so that you can begin the training process. The more posts you deploy, the higher your odds and opportunity for deer to interact with the post – therefore, the quicker your training period. Once interaction occurs, the trained deer will typically stay approximately 30 ft. from a post.
In the spring, the established deer groups disperse and doe will often chase away their fawns. In the fall, the hunts will further scramble deer populations. It is critical during these times that you have all your posts placed to train new deer that may settle into your area. For best results, put the Electronic Deer Repellent posts out before planting.
Most homeowners have reported that they see quick & immediate results, however if you have a large property and deer population you may need to give the system some time to train all deer. Untrained deer may browse some of your plants until finding a post during the training period. This can be kept to a minimum by using more posts and proper placement. Do not stop using deer repellent sprays or fencing until all deer are trained.
Havahart® is committed to making customer satisfaction our number one priority. If for whatever reason, you are not 100% satisfied with your Havahart® Electronic Deer Repellent purchase, we will refund the suggested retail price or replace the product for free for up to 2 year post purchase (see warranty tab for more details).
A Note on Safety:
The post is both safe for the target animal and for accidental contact. The current produced by this device has a low amperage and a duration of only a few milliseconds. The voltage range for this product is approx. 300 volts. Additionally, the device recharges itself slowly so there is no possibility of continuous shock. Finally, the lure holder, which also holds the electrodes, is colored red – this serves to attract deer but also give awareness to the shock area.
Condition deer to stay away from your yard with Havahart® Electronic Deer Repellent.
