The ultrasonic solar possum repeller is bird gards latest addition in the battle against possums.
Just like our Possum Deterrent the Solar Possum Repeller (SPR) emits quiet ultrasonic sonic frequencies. The device operates off its built-in motion sensor, so it will emit the ultrasonics only when it detects movement such as a possum or a tree in the wind.
One unique feature is its ability to sync with other devices, this means if you have two or more Solar Possum Repeller’s, and any one of these devices detects a possum, all the devices will automatically emit ultrasonics in support. So using more than one device is effective
Being solar powered the device doesn’t need 240 power point or a power cord, and the solar panel keeps the internal batteries charged up so it is best to use this device where at least some direct exposure to sun light will occur
The device comes supplied with a ground stake so you can easily install the device anywhere in your garden. And if you need to get the device up higher there are some key hole indentations on the back of the device that allow it to be hooked onto some screws or nails
The device emits an array of frequencies that targets a variety of problem animals, and there are different settings to repel “ possums “ or “ bats and rodents” or “ cats and dogs “ and one setting that targets all animals.
The device is supplied programmed ready to repel possums but it is easy to do it yourself. Just point the dial where it says Possums or at the “ all animals at once setting “ or you can activate the additional flashing strobe light by pointing the dial to flashing and use it as an additional deterrent against possums.
The motion sensor has a maximum detection range of 8 metres and a detection angle of 110 degrees ( 70 – 80 sq metres ) in front of the device. So the max range against possums is 8 metres but because of a greater spread of the ultrasonics the defended area is up to 200 sq metres.
