We have a real bad problem with neighboring cats. On one side of us the neighbors have 13 cats. On the other side of us the neighbors have about 20-25 cats. They use our yard as a kitty litter box and the smell is unbelievably bad. We live in the southwest where the temperature gets very hot – 105 to 112 most of the summer months. The smell is bad. I need a repellent that is going to work in this heat. Which repellent would you recommend? Thank you very much for your help.
If you read through our CAT CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll see we feature many repellent type products that can be deployed to help with unwanted cat activity on your property. None of these measures would hurt the offending animals but since cats are “smart”, they’ll learn to avoid where these items are deployed. In most cases, the ULTRA SOUND DEVICES will prove to be highly effective. Cats simply don’t like the sound and where they hear it, they’ll learn not to go. And they’ll learn immediately. You didn’t mention how big of a yard you have but in most cases people need to get at least 2-3 units deployed to have satisfactory results. This assures you’re getting good coverage.
You might also choose to set out some CAT REPELLENT GRANULES along with some PESTICIDE APPLIED SIGNS. Though cats can’t read, their owners will see you’ve applied some granules in the yard and if they care for their pets, they’ll make a point of keeping them out of your yard. Renewing the granules monthly and keeping the signs up for long periods of time will also help make a lasting impression. Combined with the Ultra Sound Devices, we’ve seen good results when this combination of repellents are installed.
