"We had a very bad problem with bears getting into our trash. Nothing we did could keep them out, and their destruction of the trash cans and storage bin - not to mention the mess they left - meant we had to do something quick."
"We bought Spark-Away, installed it over the trash bin, and have not had any problems with bears (or any other trash-loving vermin) since. (And it has been over 2 years now!)"
"It is a very effective product! "KD, Shawboro, NC
"Two nights ago the deer tried to get to my pear trees, the spark away went off ( the tree is only five feet from the garden deer fence ) scared them so much as they did not try to go over the fence they broke right through a section ( which has never happened in 29 years ) bear in mine the fence was heavily wire tied ) and they jumped out the other end. Spark away works. Pears are now safe. E.D." Williamstown, NJ.
"I live on a 7 acre hobby farm, and we have an abundance of deer, bears, and raccoons that are always a challenge in the orchard. I recently planted a new apple, and it was immediately stripped of all its leaves. I set up the Spark Away, and, just as quickly, new leaves came back. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the post it was on anchored well, and the unit fell and broke. It took the critters less than a week to come back. When the company owner emailed to check on how I liked the product, I admitted my carelessness. He very graciously sent me a new unit at no charge at all! I am back to winning the battle of the orchard again. I would give this product 5 stars for effectiveness, ease of use, and low impact environmentally. It does exactly what it’s supposed to!"

"Spark-Away solved my problem - of bears on my porches and in my waterfall, eating my 20 yr old koi, and pushing on doors & windows. They were getting in the dog enclosure, to the point that we were practically prisoners in our own home! After years of trying various ways of repelling them (from fox urine to activating car alarms). Spark-Away is the only thing that was truly effective. The loud crackle and ozone scent, sends them running away. Now they remember and stay away. Peace has returned, thanks to Spark-Away! I highly recommend this product. It is genius!" . CK, Asheville, NC
"I had a very severe problems with coyotes and black bears coming to our home day and night .We had bears coming on the front porch tearing down bird feeders and containers where we kept bird feed. SPARK AWAY was recommended to us and we obtained a unit from the manufacturer and installed it easily. I watched the porch the night after installation and another few days. An adult bear came on our porch and the SPARK AWAY started sending out electrical pops that promptly put the bear on the run. That bear was not seen again but a bear sow with 3 cubs came up during daylight and they promptly took off away from the arching of the SPARK AWAY. I highly recommend the SPARK AWAY UNIT be used to deter damage and danger of bears and other wildlife from around your home. A friend uses a unit to protect his bee hive successfully." R.A. Sylva, NC
We live in the woods and alongside a bit of an animal highway. Land creatures include coyote (pictured), fox, turkeys, black bears, fisher cats, raccoons, a lynx but most bothersome are the deer. Haven't seen any of those since we put out our Spark-Aways!
Bears: I purchased a Spark-Away unit mid-summer at the height of black bear activity. A 400+ pound bear was determined to rip the screens off windows and break into the house. He was aggressive towards people and vehicles as well. It took two visits to the porch (with spark-away) by the aggressive bear and it never showed up again on the porch. BH Black Mountain, NC.
Deer: - I live on a 7 acre hobby farm, and we have an abundance of deer, bears, and raccoons that are always a challenge in the orchard. I recently planted a new apple, and it was immediately stripped of all its leaves. I set up the Spark Away, and, just as quickly, new leaves came back… I am back to winning the battle of the orchard again. SB Mills River, NC..
Elk - : I put two Spark-Away’s in my drive way pointing at each entrance, the elk would turn and go back heading for the neighbors. only damage now is a little gravel spun up from them digging out. Did I mention that there are 4 herds of Elk in the area and all over a 100 head. Before I got your units, I had over 100 inside my fenced yard which is only one acre. they pretty much destroyed my shrubs, and lawn. p.s. it also seems to help keep the
door to door people away LOL P.A. Folks, WA.
Coyotes No Longer on the Prowl - My backyard is a National Wildlife Federation certified wildlife habitat. I have sixteen bird and critter feeders in my backyard, which is located along a creek. Along with birds, the bird feeders attract squirrels, chipmunks, possums, raccoons, skunks, rabbits, and river otters. Coyotes recently moved into the surrounding area and use the creek behind my house to travel discretely to my property and surrounding properties to search for prey. I have tried every highly rated animal deterrent device on Amazon to keep the coyotes off my property, but nothing worked. I installed Spark-Away along the creek and the coyotes disappeared to my delight. TM, Farmington Hills, Michigan
No more garbage for the Bears to tear up! - We manage a 5 cabin resort so we always have lots of garbage. For years we have dealt with Bears getting into our three 96 gallon trash cans and dragging it all over the woods and then the dreaded task of cleaning it all up. Well no more since we installed the Spark-Away last year we have not had a single incident. Of course we still get startled as well as our guests, but that is okay. Our guests ask what is that for and when we tell them, they say what a great idea someone had. So a big Thank You to Spark-Away for inventing a great item, 5 Stars! We highly recommend it!

OTTERS - For the 1st time I left my boat uncovered for 3 days when I was away. For 20years I would never think of doing that. I arrived back & no sign of otters. After only several weeks Spark-away appears to have become a deterrent & they have found someone else’s boat & dock to their business on. Looks like I (we) finally won the battle. Thanks again. H. Galiano, B.C.
FERAL CATS - No matter what I tried I couldn't keep the local feral cats off of my new car. They would get on it almost every night. Spark-Away was my last option. Since nothing else had worked, I was skeptical. I've had it for a couple of months now and not one single cat has been on the car. Works perfectly. BP.Adamsville, TN
