PestBye Battery Operated Cat Repeller
PestBye battery operated cat repeller. Sends out a very loud noise
at a frequency that cats can hear but is too high for most humans to
hear. This is both annoying and frightening to the cats but does not
affect birds. Also effective for dogs and foxes.
- Unit includes motion sensor
- 40ft operating range.
The Cat repeller is the quickest fix for cats in your yard. Battery
powered, it's easy to install by pushing into the ground using the stake
supplied, or it can be screwed to a wall or fence.
Fully waterproof, it can be left out in any weather.
Why the motion sensor?
The repeller comes complete with
an infra-red (PIR) motion sensor which turns the device on when a warm
body enters the controlled area. This has an important purpose other
than saving battery life: researchers have found that cats can become desensitized to the noise if they realize that random sounds are not
associated directly with their presence in the controlled area. With the
motion sensor, the cat learns to associate the noise with its own
movement and is much less likely to stop being afraid of the noise.
repeller device allows you to change the output frequency, enabling you
to have the most effective solution for your particular pest problem.

four AA batteries. Battery life depends on how many times the device is
activated, but they typically last 3-4 months assuming 10 activations
per day.Batteries are not supplied.
What area does it cover?
It covers an 80 degree arc, to a
distance of up to 23ft (7m), giving a total unobstructed working area of
184sq ft. Unlike most other repellers this allows you to cover a
smaller area with the sensitivity dial. The repeller will give you the
full 7m if the dial is fully round to the right to decrease the distance
turn to the left, this will help to increase battery life as the
repeller will cover the distance you want it to.
How quickly will it work?
cats have a habit of feeding and fouling in your garden, it can take
14-28 days to deliver the full deterrent effect. 'Occasional' visitors
will usually be stopped within 7 days. If you have a dog, the dog may be
affected if it is allowed in the same part of the garden. The sound
doesn't travel well through walls and fences, so it won't affect a dog
in the house, or a neighbor's dog. Of course, as with all methods
involving animal behavior, we can’t guarantee effectiveness in every
situation, however, our own experience and the feedback we get from
customers suggests that this device is effective in almost all

happens it will usually only occur while children are in the garden.
