To get rid of cats is quite easy since it was a quite big and visible animals,Why not you try to build a fence instead of using a repellent that won't last long?

#1 Cost: self-explanatory.
#2 Sunshine for & view of the garden blocked by a fence that cats can't get through nor jump/climb over.

Reverse the priorities if you're a gardener

Yup I have tried it 2 years before, but I didn't find it useful and hence I stared using pest control . It is ultimately effect in cats due to its strong taste.

Cats is not a big pest control issue but I am always worried about bugs and small mites. How can we control them

Cat enters in our garden to eat rats and insects. So I will suggest you to do pest control in your garden, as pest control kills all insects and rats. If there will be no rats and insects in our garden, automatically cat will not enter into your garden.

If you poison the rats and the cats eat the rats, then you'll poison the cats.

Pests are attracted to shelter, food and water. Homeowners should promptly clean up all water and food spills, seal any cracks and crevices around doors, windows and pipes and install weather stripping around and under all doors, including garage doors. Pesky pests draw an exasperated sigh out of people. Almost all of us have experienced problems because of termites, cockroaches and other annoying pests. The best way to get rid of them is through a pest control service.

Open trash or remainings of your pet's food may invite cats into your garden. So always close the trash and clean up the food remainings. Installing a motion activated sprinkler is one of the best way to prevent the entry of cats into your garden. Cats doesn't like getting wet, so cats may be discouraged to enter the garden. You can also spray citrus scented fragrance around your garden in order to get rid of cats.

My cat's are not pests, but one neighbor's cat is

Our problem is squirrels. I don't mind if they eat them, we have plenty. But they like to sample a bunch until they find the one they like

At least the birds are more picky with the figs. Only a few get pecked before a decision is made. And when they find one they like, they leave only the outside

Squirrels may also enter your home through attics and crawl spaces if there are no barriers to prevent them from getting in. Such animals may have mites, fleas and other pests, which may infest your home. It is important that the company you hire must have adequate experience in the field of pest control. With experience comes the knowledge and expertise to deal with a problem better and to ensure a flawless accomplishment of the job.

Cats are very intelligent animals. Instead of buying pest controls and spending money- Why not shout on them? Surely, they will go. LOL

When you think of all the "startling audible high pitched sounds" that animals can make as they are being killed, I would think predators can pretty much tune all of that out when they are hungry enough.

Or don't care. That sound may be a song to the salivating predator.

I haven't tried any repellents yet, but I'll use it if it's good. Cats have been a headache for sometime now.

Well, if you don't have the time to do it right,
what makes you think you'll have the time to do it over?

Don't keep any garbage bins open and it may attract cats into the garden. The left out particles of your pet may attract other animals too..

This is the first time that I've heard about "6110 Critter Gitter". Well, if this is an animal repeller flashing device with alarm then this could be helpful. I'm not fond of cats too and so with rats. But, I only drive away cats from our vicinity because I easily get annoyed with their poops.

I read somewhere (but never tried it) that moth balls and chili powder keep cats away. I keep thinking I'm going to try it for all the feral cats in the neighborhood that the sweet little ol' lady across the street is feeding. :banghead: They think our flower bed is a litter box!
