Garden protection

Okay, it's that time of year....
Evidence of night time animals that like to eat tomatoes and other goodies. Now, in our suburban area, we don't have lions, deer or those guys, but we do have rodents, possums, raccoons etc. and believe it or not, coyotes.....
Our yard is small, but we have packed it with produce, which is getting ready to be eaten....by us....
So, I did a search and found an interesting item that I wanted to share.
Traps and poison are difficult if you want to keep children and pets safe....so I found "Nite Guard".
It uses the "predator" idea of a red light that scares the varmints away! It is Guaranteed!
I ordered it on Amazon!
It will protect your chickens....your produce...what have you....
They recommend a cluster of three to four (we bought two) to cover a larger area....
One is supposed to protect about 200 feet!
Imagine....safe, solar, and average life of these lights is 3 years!
I think it is worth a try...How about you?? It cost $16.84 for one....



Here's wishing you happy produce!!

We have a light that comes on if anything tries to get near the chicken house and run. So far ...so good. :)
