I bought one a few years ago, cost a packet, it did not work, the rabbits found a way round it. Not worth it at all, I have resulted to putting chicken wires around plants I know they like to nibble on, for example.... roses, they love the new shoots of those or any young shoots. Also as my garden is quite long, I have actually watched them sitting at the other end carrying on as normal. :(((

The mole one we tried seemed to attract the little b.......lighters. More mole hills around it tha anywhere else in the garden. Still it did enable me to trap it!

Ours don't work on cats. The fox one worked once when they cubbed under the shed and we concentrated the signal down the back of the shed. She moved them right away. I saw her go over the fence with one in her mouth. The next vixen wasn't having any of that nonsense.....she wasn't under the shed most of the time. Very aggressive with me once the cubs got active. Yapping all the time I was out in the garden. She didn't want to join the fleas under the shed and fed the cubs standing up in the garden about 4pm most afternoons.

They've never worked for me, either.
