Effectively Repels:A Unique, Unobtrusive Alternative to an Electric Deer Fence This Electronic Deer Repellent uses a unique, patented technology that gives deer a harmless, static shock to condition them to avoid your yard and leave your landscape intact. No need for unsightly and expensive fencing solutions that compromise your landscape, - the Havahart® Electronic Deer Repellent works just like an electronic fence, but without the wires, providing an unobtrusive, silent solution to destructive deer. Watch the video »Distract Deer From Your Plants, and Train Them to Stay Away for Good This electronic solution works by taking advantage of a deer's heightened sensitivity to smell, attracting them to the individual repelling posts with sweet acorn scented lure inside an azalea-colored casing. When the curious deer contact the post, the Electronic Deer Repellent delivers a very mild static shock, startling the deer and training the animal to avoid your property.Stakes are Easy to Install and Relocate, So You Can Keep Deer on Their Toes Proper stake placement is key; posts should be positioned around deer entries, paths, and around plants they like. After deer have been conditioned to avoid certain areas of your property, the units can be moved to protect newly emerging plants or to protect new entryways. And because the batteries last up to 1 year, the product is virtually maintenance-free. Just reapply the powerful acorn scented lure weekly for best results.Correct Just One Deer and Repel the Entire Herd Deer are known to travel in groups and communicate with one another when they locate food or sense danger. All you need is one deer to touch the deer repelling stake, and the entire herd will receive teh message to stay away.Safer For Them and Your Family These posts are both safe for the target animal and for accidental contact. The current produced by this eletronic deer repeller has a very low amperage and a duration of only a few milliseconds. The voltage range for this product is approximately 300 volts, and it recharges itself slowly, so there is no possibility of a continuous shock. Finally, the lure holder, which also holds the electrodes, is colored red - this serves to attract deer but also give awareness to the shock area.

Review RateEvidence of effectiveness
This product did not keep deer away, and I didn't want to. Rather, I wanted to keep them away from desired plants and some trees. As a result, I placed them near vulnerable plants. I can say this: 1. No peas growing on our garden fence have been eaten since placing a stake at each end of the peas. 2. Likewise, new growth on recently planted raspberries has not been touched since placing two stakes near them. 3. We have two low hanging fruit trees that deer can reach. I placed a stake under each, and we have seen at least one deer that will come near the tree, stare at the stake a while, then turn away. A good indication that a spark had hit it's nose.
Review RateDon't think twice! Use these and spray...Keep the deer away.
Works wonders. Using these along with a spray has changed my gardens this year. Last year everything was destroyed. This year, they have stayed away, with the exception of where they came through from neighbors property and no stakes.
Review RateOn the fence
I am not certain as I was told if I touch them It would wear down the batteries. It has rained like crazy and I have not moved them around yet. Materials are very fragile and they come apart easily after being installed. I have replaced scent each week but I am still on the fence regarding their effectiveness

Review Rateelectronic deer repelant
The electronic deer stakes have been working well in my yard. Last year at this time all my vegetation was chewed to the ground. I now have a full yard of greenery this year and my yard looks good.
Review RateTERRIBLE, FALSE ADVERTISING
OMG I THOUGHT THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD IDEA THAT i PURCHASED 24 OF THESE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY, THEY DID NOTHING TO REPEL DEER AND I AM JUST OUT THE MONEY.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
For best results, placing the units around deer entries, paths, and around plants they are most likely to encounter will force deer interaction with the unit. After deer have been conditioned to avoid certain areas of your property, we recommend moving the units around occasionally.

Review RateNon functional
I installed them about 12 days ago and the deer come, sniff, and walk away..... I "tested" each unit with my finger and of the 9 installed, only 2 provided a "shock". I changed out batteries and re tested with same non shock event. Very unhappy.Response From Safer Brand®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
After assembling the units, it will take approximately 45 minutes for the spikes to fully charge. How long were the units charged before they were tested? We recommend visually inspecting the electrode wires to make sure the inside pair are not contacting the outside pair of wires. If they are touching, gently adjust them away from each other until there is a small gap between them in all areas.

Review RateDidn't work.
Unfortunately, these did nothing to scare away the deer at our house. I bought six, tested them regularly, moved them around, used them in conjunction with fishing line and various spray repellent--all to no avail. The deer were not scared. We had to the install a fence.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateThey work better than anything else I have used.
I have about 40 of the Havahart electronic deer stakes. Our 1/3rd acre yard and flower garden was featured in the Wichita KS Master Gardener's annual tour last year so keeping the deer out is important. We are located next to a wildlife refuge and with no fence we have to be creative. Maybe because of our large deer population I find that every plant and every shrub I want to protected must have an electronic stake. Staking only the deer entry points does not solve the problem. I have them at entry points and wherever plants are that deer eat. They are effective but each planting bed needs 1 to 3 of the posts. Rain and lawn watering discharges them and washes off the scent. They will recharge after a rain but need new scent applied. Even without rain I re-scent at least once a week. One issue I have found and need to solve is some of the electronic stakes get water into the electronic head. The plastic weld seams or moisture wicking is causing water to get into the heads. Once wet inside some don't work again.
Review RateGreat Concept
Great concept. Bought 3 and they worked for a while. Two cracked where the plastic top meets the aluminum base. One lost ability to hold the charge. Could be that the deer broke the stick when they didn't get shocked.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
