Ultrasonic cat repellers – size matters?

The question to ask is: “do I need a large ultrasonic cat repeller or will a smaller (and less expensive) model get the same results ?”.

All our ultrasonic cat deterrents work very well, but it’s a case of picking the right machine for the size of your garden and the severity of the problem.

If you have a small garden, our best selling, smaller cat deterrent STV610 (£26.99) with a 30ft range, will more than likely do the job. However, if you have a larger garden, or a large number of cats that use your garden as a toilet or dig up your flowerbeds, you might want to consider the benefits of the bigger, 150ft range Sentinel ultrasonic cat deterrent (£129.99). Or even our latest model, the ultra-powerful Sentinel 3 way that has a three way speaker system and a maximum range of 300ft (£169.99).

If you are considering splashing out on the Sentinel, one of our more expensive and powerful ultrasonic cat repellers, check the differences before you spend your hard earned cash.

The first and obvious difference is the effective range: 30ft for the STV610 cat deterrent compared with 150ft for the Sentinel. It’s not only the range in a straight line that is increased, but with the longer range, you also get a wider spread of ultrasonic sound from the 150ft model.

The huge benefit that comes with the bigger Sentinel cat repeller is the adjustable ultrasonic frequency. The main reason this ultrasonic repeller stands head and shoulders above other models is because the frequency is adjustable. The user can very easily fine-tune the ultrasound to get the optimum effect for the creature you are trying to repel. The frequency can be adjusted to also repel rats, mice, squirrels, foxes, birds etc.

As the Sentinel ultrasonic cat repeller is so powerful, it is mains powered and therefore always working, giving protection 24/7. It comes complete with a mains adaptor & 10mtr of cable.

Update:

We now have an even more powerful model with a range of  300ft. The Sentinel 3 way ultrasonic cat deterrent.

ULTRASONIC CAT REPELLERS

An ultrasonic Cat repeller creates an uncomfortable environment that a cat wants to get away from. Most have an PIR motion detector, that when a cat moves infront of it, activates the ultrasonic noise that most cats hate. It’s not painful or cruel, just annoying to a cat.

The most common reason for purchasing such a device is to stop cats fouling on your lawn or flower bed. If you aim the ultrasonic repeller in the general direction of where the cat is pooing, it should work fine.

There are a few points to mention about positioning the ultrasonic cat repeller. They don’t work through bushes, shrubs, hedges or anything else that is an obstacle. The unit needs a clear line-of-sight for both the PIR motion sensor to be able to detect movement and the ultrasonic tone to be heard by the cat.

Many of us like to feed birds in our gardens, but this often attracts the unwanted attention of a cat who will see your bird table or bird feeder as a fast food take-away. A cats motivation to catch birds can be far greater than the deterrent effect of any ultrasonic repeller. To help break the cycle of a cat repeatedly entering your garden, it is best to stop feeding the birds for a couple of weeks when you first install the repeller. By doing this, it will greatly increase the chances of the ultrasonic repeller having a lasting effect on the cat. Once the cat thinks that there are no more birds in your garden, the ultrasonic noise will then chase the cat away

The most popular model is the STV610 that has a range of 30ft.
