A solar powered, maintenance free, flashing red light unit. Units are sealed, weatherproof, high/low temperature resistant and will last for 2 or more years.
Instructions included for how to position unit for nocturnal ground and winged predators. Here are the basics.
Hawks or Owls: Four lights mounted 10-14 feet in the air on a single post with each light facing a different direction (cluster mount).
Small Ground Predators: Predators like raccoon, opossum and skunk; put the lights approximately 25-50 feet apart, around all four sides (perimeter mount) and eye level to the predator approximately 10-15 inches off the ground.
Large Ground Predators: Predators like fox, coyote, bobcat, wild boar, mountain lion and bear; put the lights approximately 100-200 feet apart, around all four sides (perimeter mount) and eye level to the predator approximately 20-30 inches off the ground. Use cluster mount for large, open acreage.
Deer: Four lights mounted 4 feet high on a single post with each light facing a different direction (cluster mount). Place the post in the center of the area to be protected. Unlike other night animals deer get used to seeing something in the same location so it is best to relocate the cluster mount about every 1-2 weeks to break the pattern.
Other uses: marker for docks, driveways and to deter break-ins. Unit size 2 1/2" x 2" high x 1" deep. You will need to provide screw for mounting and post or stake.
