Looking to Get Rid of Raccoons from Your Backyard?

Read this Review: Can A Motion Activated Sprinkler Get Rid of Raccoons? (My Review)

The Orbit 62100 Yard Enforcer Motion Activated Sprinkler is an effective raccoon deterrent and a raccoon repellent. This motion detector sprinkler solved the problem of raccoons crapping in my pool. Because my yard is big, and raccoons are very persistent critters, I ended up buying a few of them and set up a sprinkler mime field in the backyard. Wherever they surfaced, they got zapped by a powerful burst of water.


Using Airsoft Guns to Control Pests Getting Into Your Stuff

/ by / Tags: , , , , ,


Believe it or not, there are lots of uses for airsoft guns in the world today. While many are content to just host airsoft gun wars at a local park or a friend’s backyard, others are looking for uses for airsoft guns outside of the ordinary. If you ask people why they got into airsoft, you’re sure to find many different answers. Of course you’ll find the answer that there was a particular style of gun that that person just had to buy and use because they loved the style. Others are looking to simply ad d to their collection, some use their airsoft guns for training or target practice. But some answers may surprise you. Many people who purchase airsoft guns are looking for a practical method of pest control in their houses.

You may not agree with it, but many folks use airsoft guns to keep pests away from their home and belongings. Have a raccoon that goes through your trash cans every night, making a mess? For others it’s that dog that wanders into your yard while your children are playing? Are squirrels getting into your attic? The answer for many people is simple, try and dissuade them from coming in with a low powered airsoft gun.

Before you start thinking about animal cruelty, I’m only advising that low speed spring cheap airsoft guns should be the only way to go in this instance. It’s more humane than setting up traps, which can cause serious injury to an animal. Choose a low powered spring airsoft pistol so that if you accidentally hit the animal, it won’t hurt them. If you see the raccoons climbing into your trash can, take the airsoft gun and shoot the trash can a couple of times to scare the animal away, not to hit and hurt the animal. The point is to try and train the animal that coming into your yard or going through your trash cans isn’t okay.

Bird cannons work in much the same way trying to train the birds not to come and stay in a particular area. They don’t aim to hit and hurt the birds, but instead to scare them away. You can see how some low speed cheap airsoft guns can be a great tool for controlling the different pests in and around your house without having to hurt the animal. There are different kinds of airsoft guns which shoot pellets at a very high velocity, but you really don’t need something so strong when dealing with animals. Plus, if the animal is hit with a spring airsoft gun, it will only sting a little, to try and teach the animal not to continue in that particular action.
