This owl is my guard owl. I have been having pigeon problems for years where eggs were layed on my terrace and scaring the pigeons would not work at all, because they will always come back. Now that I purchased this product the pigeons are reluctant to come on the terrace and i see less mess there. I go out and move it from time to time. It gives a hoot (pretty loud) and the pigeons fly away. The only problem is you have to replace the battery every 2 weeks or your owl sounds sick. Also, it is kind of light so if there is wind or rain it might blow over, but that can be tolerated knowing that there is NO MORE PIGEON MESS on my terrace. I would recomend this product to anyone that has a balcony or terrace.

We got this owl because we have 2 skunks how get in our backyard and eat the birdseeds that fall of the the feeders. We have a fence but they always find a way to get in. Last night we watched the skunk sitting right next to the owl eating seeds while the owl was hooting away. The skunks didnt even care the the owl was there. Also the birds ignore it too and I think the squirrels are laughing at it. This was the biggest waste of money. I would never recommend this owl to anyone. It does not work. We use the garden hose and chase the skunk out of the yard that way.

Day 3

By Seagulls be Gone

from Myrtle Beach

Comments about Easy Gardener® Garden Defense Electronic Owl (SRHO-4):

Don't know why my original post has not showed up yet. Hopefully it will. My problem is with Seagulls. I live in Myrtle beach, on a lake not far from the Ocean. The Seagulls were landing and crapping all over my house roof. I bought this owl. the solar powered one. Almost all of the reviews here are for the battery owl, which is not the right one. I bought the solar powered on and mounted it three days ago on a pole about 18 inches above my not used cable dish. Been three days, and not one seagull has come near the house. Looking out my window, I can easily count over 100 seagulls in the water and on the shore on the other side of the lake. None are within 50 yards of my house. The post I put it on allows the owl to sway in the wing, and the rotating heads rotates during the day in the sunlight. It stops rotating in when there is no sun, but is moves slightly in the wind. Been doing a great job and I hope the seagulls do not eventually figure it it poses no harm. I would buy this again.

Electronic Owl sensor range problem

Cons

  • Bends/Blows Away

    Comments about Easy Gardener® Garden Defense Electronic Owl (SRHO-4):

    The electronic motion sensors lack sensitivity unless an object moves 1 to 2 feet at most from the owl. I can almost walk right up to it before it detects me.

    Comments about Easy Gardener® Garden Defense Electronic Owl (SRHO-4):

    I bought this owl and it wasn't cheap. The on/off switch is a poor design, you can't see the printing and it looks like it could break easily. The battery placement is bad as if you attach this owl to a pole and screw it down, you have to "unscrew" it in order to replace the batteries..Poor Design..it works when it wants too, the directions on the box are not well written..there wasn't any written info in the package. It makes a nice yard ornament, but as far as it working think again before buying this or buy a cheaper model and inspect it carefully..try it out at the store.

    Owl works great, however a brisk wind will blow it to the ground so it needs to be either made heavier or secured to a mounting.

      I purchased the owl about a year ago. Before that the doves were doing their business on my porch, my door, even my window screens. From the first day the owl went on the porch it has kept all of the birds away. The owl is now broke and I'm back to purchase another one.

            I have a fig tree on my backyard, birds were eating all of them. The Owl has been installed, over the top of the tree, for a week and now I can see a big difference: birds stay away from it and we are enjoying 8 to 10 figs a day!!!. Only down side is the sound may be disturbing for neighbors and our dog (no complaints yet)

            The owl doesn't work. The Birds land on top of it. the Squirrels are laughing at it und the skunks doesn't even care that its hoots while he eats the seeds from the bird feeder. It's a waste of money. I would not recomment this item. The batteries dont last long either.
