It’s annoying when birds “mark” your waterfront belongings. With Scarecrow on the market, though, maybe things will stay a little cleaner.
It’s a motion-activated sprinkler designed to “promote harmony between animals and humans, without the use of fences, chemicals, or noisemakers,” says the manufacturer.
Its passive infrared sensor activates a three-second blast of water when an intruder is within range. It attaches to a regular garden or dockside hose and uses just one 9-volt battery.
Scarecrow is backed by a 30-day, money-back guarantee, comes with a two-year limited warranty, and retails for $79.
