Motion Sensor Sprinkler Prevent European Chafer Beetle Damage

How To Protect Your Lawn are from the European Chafer Beetle

The chafer beetle is a major and costly problem for Vancouver homeowners. To prevent damage to your lawn area from the crows, racoons and skunks use a detterent to keep them away from your lawn. The scarecrow motion sensor sprinkler is ideal for this purpose. To rid your lawn of European chafer beetle itself, you must apply nematodes in late July. Call BC Instant Lawns for more information on nematode applications. Chemical control measures are not available in most Vancouver area municipalities.

If you are planning to re-install a new lawn after an European Chafer Beetle infestation has occured and the crows, skunks or racoons have decimated your old lawn, we recommend the following:

- Remove at least 3-6 inches of soil material. Although the grubs will go much deeper and this process will not guarantee eradication of the beetle, having a proper new lawn sub base is important for proper growth.

- Apply Nematodes every July. As well try to include your neighbours property.

- Use a pest detterent such as a motion sensor sprinkler to keep the crows, skunks and racoons away from the european chafer beetle in your lawn area.

How Much Does the sprinkler cost?

The cost of a scare crow motion sensor sprinker unit is $99.00 and shipping costs of $12.00 plus taxes.

It will take between 7-10 days to arrive at your door by mail. If you live within the Vancouver area shipments normally arrive in a couple days.

The Scarecrow has literally saved our farm. The neighbourhood ravens have devastated our crops for years: they snip the tops off of garlic and uproot transplants and leave them to dry out and die. They scratch away the mulch around plants that we've spent days laying down. We rely on our farm crops to make a living, and the ravens were costing us thousands of dollars in lost sales and time. Ravens are intelligent creatures and we were at a loss as to how to keep them off our property. Traditional scarecrows don't work; netting is expensive and time-consuming. The only way we can effectively protect our farm when we're not out in the fields ourselves is with our Scarecrows. Thanks to our Scarecrows, we're once again able to enjoy a lazy Sunday breakfast or go out to a movie and relax, knowing that our crops are safe at home.

Your product has been the best item I've purchased in years. Until the arrival of your ScareCrow we tried every solution to manage the problem - nothing worked. Your product literally worked overnight and got rid of the raccoons 100%!

 —Greg Hinkley

I am using mine to keep pigeons off the ground and from around the feeder. It is doing great and keeps them away 100%. As soon as they see it on the lawn they keep away. Thanks a lot.
