Critter Proofing Your Yard and Garden

I am having such a problem with rabbits and chipmunks in my garden I have been searching everywhere for some kind of solution.  While I am frustrated with the wild life enough that I have thought about a pellet gun. I think I could probably shoot them but I really don’t want to be having to bury all of them.I know we have a post for a rabbit repellent and it works but you have to continuously reapply if it rains or even if there is a heavy dew the night before.  We have also shared a post for keeping cats out of the flower beds,  but again you have to keep applying.Then we have a post on keeping  squirrels out.

   While all these work they all require constant replacing and if the garden is doing well I would rather be weeding or canning than  critter proofing all through the season. I believe I may have found a solution to all of the critter problems with the Scarecrow Sprinkler. Reading the reviews it sounds like it works really well to keep all these critters and even deer out of the yard and garden.

   I love the idea of hooking it up and letting it do the job. It works day and night, its humane and I can reuse it every year without the hassle of making potions or reapplying sprays,peels,and such all summer long. If you all need help with keeping any of the wildlife out of your garden or yard.

   ( I am pretty sure this will work for dogs who sometimes think my yard is a pit stop on their walks and whose owners think its okay to let them and leave the results) , try one of the above solutions or if like me you want to just be done you could try the sprinkler too. I am putting a link for it below.
