Maintenance-free, solar-powered units require neither batteries nor electricity.
Units are completely sealed, protecting against moisture & are high/low temperature resistant.
Red flashing LED light automatically turns on at dusk & off at full daylight.
Concept is simple, but it works.
Predators believe the flash to be the eye of another animal & they feel threatened, so they stay away. Protects against owls, coyotes, opossum, raccoons, fox, bobcats, muskrats, bear, cougar, wild boar, mink, weasels & many more nocturnal predators.
Use multiple units for maximum effect.
For raccoons, opossum and skunks: Put lights approximately 25 feet apart, around your entire perimeter (all four sides of the area) and place them eye level to the predators approximately 10-12 inches off the ground. If the area has sides longer than 50 feet, more lights should be used on each side. Face lights outward from protected area.
For hawks and owls: Four lights mounted at least 10-14 feet in the air on a single post are required. Each light should face a different direction; North, South, East and West. Hawks and owls often attack from low tree limbs so 10-14 feet will put the lights at eye level. If lights are located on a hill, adjust Nite Guards lower. If lights are in a valley adjust lights higher. This is critical as the raptors may come in from above or below the lights in these areas.
For foxes, coyotes, bobcats, wild boars, mountain lions and bears: Put the lights approximately 100 feet apart around your entire perimeter (all four sides of the area) and place them eye level to the predators which is approximately 20-25 inches off the ground. If the area has sides longer than 100 feet, more lights should be used on each side. Face lights outward from protected area.
For deer:Four Nite Guard lights placed on a single stake 4 feet high, each light facing a different direction. Moving the Nite Guard lights and stake every 7 days is absolutely critical as it breaks the pattern that deer may get used to. You do not have to move them far, 20 or 30 feet is fine, more is better. If you do not move the post with the lights around the deer will begin to "pattern" them in the exact position night after night, thusly losing fear of the flash.
NOTE: Deer are perhaps the most destructive nocturnal animal in modern times, they are also the most intelligent. Deer are very hard to deter from an area and, with the exception of the Nite Guard, will ignore most attempts to stop them from getting at the food that they want. The also act differently than a predator type animal and so we need to approach the placement of the lights differently.
You could also use a perimeter type placement against deer, placing lights 100 feet apart and approx. 4 feet high. Again, you will need to move the lights around every 3-10 days to break the pattern. Suggestion: Use the Nite Guard in conjunction with some of the other "weapons" they may already have in their "arsenal" against deer. Most people with deer problems are very well away of the deer's intelligence and know that they get used to things easily. Use the Nite Guard lights along with some type of "repellant spray". The deer then will not only "see" the predator (the flash of the light), but they will also "smell" the predator. This can be a very powerful deterrent for those deer that seem impossible to repel. You will be able to outsmart deer and protect your gardens and crops with the Nite Guards!
||They work!! As long as they are rotated as instructed
|We have had numerous chickens taken by various predators. We purchased 4 NiteGuards and we do rotate them although, not every week...more realistically, every few weeks. There is a significant decrease in predator footprints in and around our chicken coop! The only time these devices dont work, is if we forget to move them. Theyve been in use for almost a year and a half now and hardly show any signs of wear. I sleep better at night, knowing that the predators are deterred!|
