I like to think ive had some pretty good ideas in my time, like forget drive through coffee shops, I invented drive by coffee. (Skinny Latte!) And whatever spork. I beat the hell out of that when I created the cutting spoon. But the one idea I had that was probably most successful.
Was my water spray cat deterrent, which quite successfully rid my yard of urine spraying cats. Well, at least I thought that was the case for a while. So there I was, working away on a new non cat related project for a YouTube tutorial. And then I noticed an all to familiar sight .and smell. Yep. cat piss!.
Yeah, like before, its in all the usual places around the outside of my house. . even in my house. So while my Really super awesome cat get awayer thing worked well for months there, it’s not really practical to leave on all the time. But even once it was packed up the cats stayed away,.
Probably because it was burnt into their memory like if you ever have walked. in on your parents.Mum, where’s my Aladdin DVD? There were a lot of good alternative ideas suggested by you all but no . I am not going to replace the hose with a gun for obvious reasons. And for the minority of people out their who said err thats urine from a dog, did you not understand my surveillance footage?.
Its not a dog because one there is a big fence, and two THIS is a cat. Even if they are upside down I can still tell because I have this ability to see. So there are still a couple of cats returning to my yard, so I figured I needed to revisit this whole cat deterrent concept. What I need to do is increase the fear element of the device,.
So it’s etched so deeply into their memory they never return. In researching pest control measures, I discover that some farmers and even airports have been known to use pyrotechnics to scare birds and other pests away. No, I’m not going to use explosives. although that is a good idea,.
But you can’t easily buy anything fun like that in western australia. Here you’re not even allowed to use a toaster unless you are a licensed electrician. While looking through a draw I found something which prompted an idea. In keeping things humane and hopefully more effective here’s what you need to do.
Start off by purchasing yourself some party poppers. Youll also need an old pedestal fan. If you have a neighbour that has a bore for their garden reticulation, you’ll need to borrow their systems 240 volt relay. Find a power board. Grab a small plastic box that the relay will fit in.
