Deer are surprisingly adaptable. A beep, tweet or honk may startle them at first, but they
soon learn to ignore it and get back to foraging in your garden. A well-known PhD and garden
author finally came up with a solution. This motion-activated device shines a bright light and
plays an FM radio station you select. Because the sound is ever-changing, deer don't learn to
ignore it. Human voices make them particularly nervous — talk radio is ideal.

Comments about : Deer Chaser™:
My dad always used a radio to keep the deer out of his corn, so when I saw this I had to try it out. I have a big garden and the range is small, so you need a lot of chaser to cover a large area. Then you need somewhere to mount the chaser. I use it along the fencing and on the poles for my bird houses. Any type of movement will set the chaser off. So even if it is windy the chaser will go off. It takes 3 'D' size batteries and if you have a bunch of chaser you replacing a lot of batteries. I do wish it had the option of AC also, then at lease some of the chaser I could plug in. Between the chaser and my dog, my garden hasn't been totally distroyed as in years past.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Is too sensitive would start playing when the wind blows. My husband went out on our deck and the music started playing. I don't know where this would work. We hung on a tree in the flower garden and it played at any movement.Even if it was in the woods the wind would have make it play. Very disappointed in this product. I will stick with Deer no no

We have a # of deer eating our landscaping, so far this product has discouraged them. I think it has also discouraged the rabbits and chipmunks. The only thing I wish it had was an off/on capibility. We have to remove it in the daytime because we keep setting it off.

Gives the deer light & entertainment as they browse the garden. Please send me a return address for this piece of junk!

The deer chaser in Maryland works like a deer entertainer. The deer just stand there and listen while they eat plants in my yard. I'm disappointed. Maybe as an alternate- recordings of Johann Phillip Sousa's marches played very loud would scare away these deer, but then my neighbors would be very unhappy about the noise! Try this product only if you have deer that are not acclumated to humans and their noise.

Didnt work for us
By Avid gardener
from Auburn, CA
We purchased six of these to form a perimeter barrier around a large area in our yard. The motion detectors are very sensitive, which we wanted, being set off by birds, chickens, and branches moving in a breeze. The units were going off almost continually, and I think the deer got so used to the talk radio that it lost it's "startle" effect. Another reason they didnt work for us is that the deer live in such close proximity to our property, they are unafraid of human voices. We have a real deer problem here and I'm disappointed this didnt work. They were completely unphased by the noise and light. These might work in more isolated areas where deer arent used to humans at all.
A humane answer to deer problems!

I placed the Deer Chaser on one of the trees at a corner of my garden. Tilted it down some and the cats even set it off! I've tuned the radio into NPR which has a lot of talk shows on and as the directions suggested, the deer must be frightened once the light and sound comes on as they try to enter the garden area. No deer damage since it was installed!!!!! Hurray!
NOT AT ALL A DEER CHASER
from BRECKENRIDGE, COLORADO
As we were sitting outside with the Deer Chaser music on, we watched with amusement the Deer standing just a few feet from the device eating away my flowers. I was going to order two more devises,but two are enough failure.
