Critter Gitter

Amtek's Critter Gitter® keeps both wild and domestic animals away from people or property. It has been used to control wild deer, bear, skunks, raccoons, wolves and most animal.

The Critter Gitter uses body heat and motion detection to detect animals as they enter a protected area. Critter Gitter then emits a high-pitched sound and flashing red lights that frightens them away and then resets for the next intruison.
