Ultrasonic cat repellent
Ultrasonic cat deterrents are safe cheap solution to stopping cats pooping in your garden and come in various guises:
- Main power
- Battery powered
- Solar/ battery-powered
However they all work in the same way. They have a motion or infra-red heat detector that when triggered emits a high pitch noise inaudible to the human ear (if you can hear it the settings can be changed) that either scares the cat or just makes it uncomfortable to be around. If they don’t detect any motion they turn off after about 20 seconds saving battery life.

How good are they?
Cats are creatures of habit and if there habit is to use your garden as a toilet then it needs to be broken and this takes time. Unfortunately not all cats are the same! Some are old, deaf, belligerent or just well hard and not scared of anything… so this can take anything from 3 days to 3 months to stop their vandalism of your garden.
A sad fact of ultrasonic repellent is that they are not discriminatory… They will also scare / upset your own pets so unless you want a total cat free area they are not suitable for pet owners.
Is there a better way to keep cats out of your garden?
A Sonic cat repeller is a cheap affordable cat deterrent better than gels and sprays but not as good as more expensive water sprayers. If you have tried the gels and sprays and not found them successful an ultrasonic cat repellent is a great addition to your arsenal. Many successful garden owners use both sonic devises and sprays to get a cat free garden or yard.
Extra bonus of sonic cat scarers.
Not only do they keep cats away but they are also supposed to stop:
- Insects (damn big swarms to trigger the device!)
- Roaches (again how do they set it off?)
I myself owned one of these some years ago to keep cats out of my back yard, which was pebbled and nearly impossible to sort cat poo from pebbles. I positioned it to cover the whole yard and never had any trouble from cats since. Even though I was 35ish I could not hear or tell if the ultrasonic cat scarer was on or not now at 50 there is no way my hearing would pick up the sound of one of these even if it was set wrong. I do recommend a sonic cat repeller.
