How it Works

The Sureguard ScareCrow uses a Motion Sensor to detect the body heat of animals and birds. Once triggered it deploys a startling burst of water combined with unexpected noise and motion creating a safe, highly effective deterrent.

It’s environmentally friendly and a safe alternative to chemical repellents.

Customer Reviews

If you have ducks in your pool then this is a must buy. It has been fantastic. Just wish I knew about the scarecrow a couple of years earlier.


Just magic. Easy setup and not a possum in sight since. Shall move it to the front garden for a night or two to scare of a marauding cat.


We purchased the scarecrow to keep cockatoos off our new planted garden beds. I would plant out a new area of garden - the cockatoos would notice and pull plants out, bite off flower heads etc. It was heartbreaking. We have installed scarecrow and it works brilliantly.


This product is amazing!! Before purchasing the scarecrow we tried everything; fake snakes, owls chopped chili and sprinkled it on the pavement but nothing stopped the birds until we installed the product - we are so excited, no more ducks and no more droppings!!! Customer service was fantastic, delivered very quickly. Thank you!!.

    Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler - Solar Powered
    Product is great. We have had a lot of turkey issues and this appears to have solved the problem. Only comment I would make is that the plastic pole that it attaches to could be made of stronger plastic but still definitely worth the $$. The customer support is great and the person I spoke to on the phone couldn't have been more helpful. A really well run company

    This is an excellent product which works very well. We use it to keep possums away from our fruit trees and vegetables. We have three Sureguard sprayers. Previously we would often lose all of the plants overnight immediately after planting seedlings. This no longer happens. There is ample food elsewhere for the possums. The Sureguard is an excellent deterrent for unwanted vermin and therefore a great product.

    Cat deterrent
    Previously our front garden and drive way was a popular communal latrine for various neighbors cats. The installation of the Scarecrow has put a stop to visiting cats. But has also deterred annoying birds. This is the second model of Scarecrow I have used since 2014. Great work Sureguard and I highly recommended it’s use.

    Turkey moved away
    The Sureguard was easy to set up except the first spray faced me! The turkey visited a few times in the first week and now appears to have moved on. Has not been seen for 3 weeks now. So far so good.

    This is a good product for the job. Appropriate mounting is tricky as is avoiding slow leaks. But it did the job.

    Very happy with my new ScareCrow and excellent customer service
    I had problem with cat poos in my front lawn and have tried all methods to deter the cat coming without success. I bought a cheap ScareCrow and it broke after a couple of days. This ScareCrow from Sureguard is very good in quality. It is working very well. So far since I start using the device there is no more cat poos on my lawn. The customer service is excellent. They checked to see if all is operating well after the purchase. Thank you so much!

    They are doing the job on our brush turkey!
    I would definitely recommend the Sureguard scarecrow sprinkler. Get the optional aluminium stake if you have hard ground and keep the plastic one to bolster it at the rear. It has a bit of a kick back and it can work loose.

    Better value
    I bought a suteguard but I also found a similar product by a different manufacturer. The sureguard is much better made and has proved its worth. I had all kinds of breakdowns and poor performance from the other brand. Take my advice - rely on the Sure guard. That said I would like the spray burst to last about 50% to 75% longer on the sureguard. The success of the product at protecting our crops is however irrefutable. Strongly recommended!

    Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler
    Great device though so far, it has hit the wife and a boy who wanted to check them out. All my chicken are still accounted for, ergo, the two sprinklers must be doing their job.

    Ducks stay away
    We have two pools in our gated complex that become a haven for ducks at night. The Scarecrow does its job well blasting water at them as soon as they land. No more early morning poop clean ups....

    Scarecrow is a ScarePossum
    We have installed the Scarecrow on our house roof here in the Adelaide Hills . They have been using our roof a to access and eat our Glory Vine which gives us beautiful shade I is summer. Not last summer though when the possums ate the young shoots every night so we had nothing! The Scarecrow is set up on the "Possum Highway" and works like a dream. First night it was going off what seemed like every five minutes with a thunderous rush of possums heading back into the trees. Each night we had few events and now the vine is shooting and we will have our shade again. Possums have had a change of diet which is fine and we get our shade and no possum poo on the roof as well. It's been wonderfully successful as nothing else has worked. We have ordered a second. Next project is rabbits in the veggie patch. Can't wait. Anton Johnson Aldgate, Adelaide Hills

    Brilliant! After two years watching a nest 4m in diameter and 1.5m deep being built, no garden left, and about to build for a third year it was time for action. The Scarecrow has done the trick. Garden is regenerating. I am happy.

    Arrived promptly and worked well. Possums learned quickly and we are enjoying the herbs from our garden again. (Dog also learned it's a good game and is first to the scarecrow to set off the sprinkler for hours of enjoyment at 5am!).

    Prompt and excellent service. The scarecrow is precisely what we'd been searching for - something to deter our neighbour's cat from using our garden as toilet of choice. Since installation we've had no further problems.

    Works okay for dogs and humans but useless for indian miner and small birds no matter how you adjust or place the unit as the birds simply land and walk straight past at any range from 1m to 8m. [Editor: birds as small as chicken work extremely well. Small birds, like swallows, have tested okay but the surrounding heat environment can impact detection reliability. The sensor is looking for a difference in temperature between the animal and the surroundings. If you tested on a warm day that will affect the results for such small birds.]

    In principle an excellent product. It works exactly as described and we have washed a few unwanted stray cats. The only improvements I could suggest, and they may be simply impossible, is to somehow widen the field of ir detection and of the spray area. As it is, the field of detecton looks like about 90 to 100 degrees, and the spray pattern is about the same. A minimum of 135 degrees would be preferable to cover a better area in a large backyard.But I supose I could purchase two units. Editor:the sprinkler works as a startling device which is backed by a short spray of water (1-2 cups).It is mainly used to target an area.The sprinkler can be adjusted as a normal sprinkler at the bottom back of the nozzle to a narrow spray area or widen the spray area.If you open up the spray area range then 2- 3 cups will be diluted over a larger area possibly losing a lot of effect. So if cats are entering your area try and target where they are entering our property for maximum effect]
