Thank you so much for helping me order more Guardians. They are extremely effective in protecting against the Bambi population that would like to use my garden for their personal 24-hour Buffet. While my two-year-old grandson was visiting I turned off the Guardian that was protecting my tomatoes and peppers (the sound and light frightened him). In the excitement of the visit I forgot to turn the alarm back on. The next morning I found deer nipped branches on the tomatoes and the tops of the peppers. The alarm is back on 24 hours a day and no more carnage has ensued. We have just re-landscaped a 100 ft bed along our west property line and need to use the next two Guardians to protect the rhododendrons, hydrangeas, and dogwoods. Great Product!

I purchased your top products for our home in the woods... raccoons and squirrels were playing in our attic and had broken into the screened in back porch to eat my cat's food night after night, and repair after repair to block them. From the time that we plugged in the outdoor and indoor units [The Guardian and Ultimate AT]... no more raccoons, squirrels, bugs... there have been a few poor roaches that have shown up every now and then but look all beat up, stagger around for a while and drop dead. All I have to do is sweep them up. Do you ever recruit network/local marketers? I live in Austin, Texas... home of the bugs and critters.

I purchased the Guardian (AC adapter included) from Good Life in June 2008, as I was having a problem with incessant squirrels on the roof of my mobile home. However for various reasons, including that I did not find the instructions easy to follow, I did not end up using the machine at that time.
A week ago, a number of raccoons started spending the night marauding up and down my trailer roof feasting on a large crop of apples on a tree up there this year. The first night this happened, I was awake till 5am, despite hosing the roof down with an intense water jet at intervals.
The following day, I dug out my Guardian, and got it set up. For the last three nights, no raccoons on my roof. I am delighted with the results from using this product.

Our Customer Paulette from Deerfield, FL reports using the Guardian successfully to repel many opossums and squirrels from her avocado, peach, sugar apple, and banana trees in her yard. Paulette is using the Guardian on standard 'D' size alkaline batteries, and the batteries have lasted 8 months!

Our experience with the Guardian devices to repel deer was successful. Not a single deer invaded our 2012 Gold Hill Food Share Garden areas.
Our strategy was to use the minimum number of devices to keep the deer from entering the areas that comprise our 22,350 sq ft garden. The northern rectangular plot had physical protection on its northern boundary provided by an 8 ft. fence and blackberries. Its eastern boundary was protected by high blackberries. The southern irregular shaped plot had no physical protection. Considering the operating characteristics of the Guardian (120 degree pattern, 75 ft beam radius) the units were positioned as shown in the diagram. Note the arcs depicted are 50 ft radius so there was an additional 25 ft beam radius (which we confirmed in our testing and use). The units were mounted on standard wooden stakes about 5 ft above ground level with the beams directed outward toward the garden perimeters. The desired overlap of beams was effective and provided the desired coverage. The units operated continuously and reliably 6 months (from May - October) which required battery replacements in August (three months). The devices were stored and will be used again this year.
The Guardian devices repelled the deer at about half the cost of a traditional 8 ft. deer fence. That meant we avoided the labor to erect a fence. And they did not change the esthetic beauty of the garden (that a fence would cause) nor interfere with the gardening efforts of our volunteer workers. The protection provided by the Guardian devices allowed us to achieve a record production (33,000 lbs) of free veggies to needy families in Gold Hill and ACCESS pantries in Jackson county.
We are pleased! You can use this testimonial however you desire - no restrictions.
