We finally went out and bought new rechargeable batteries so the repellers can run continuously overnight now.
The birds stay away, but I have some doubt about their effect on other creatures. My daughter had a bearded dragon for six months, and brings him when she comes home. He has a lot of muscle problems from being treated badly the first year and a half, basically staying in a box under the bed of some kids. He is cold blooded and needs heat to survive. He is three year old when she got him. When it was hot last week we took him to the backyard. He was like a kid in a fantasy place. It was so funny. My daughter never thought he could run that fast. He gets to go to the backyard when it is hot now. The problem is, it seems like he likes the sound from the repellers, follows it and rests peacefully under the grapevine where there are three of them making noise.
The paver is 12"x12" so he is big.
There are some grasshoppers so we put window screen on the enclosure that has shade cloth to stop them from eating the fruits and veggies. Inside we have blueberries, Prime Ark Freedom blackberries, they have no thorn to protect the fruits, cherry tomatoes, so there will be no hornworms, lettuce, and I will add snow peas later.
Grape cherry tomato
Outside the cucumbers and beans start setting fruits. I haven’t planted veggies for a while, I don’t know what kind of protection they will need later.
