After years of extensive testing, we have found this to not be the case. Unlike other pest deterrents, the movement of the inflatable Scare Dancer® is too lifelike and erratic for pests to get used to it. In addition to this, the inflatables are colorful and make a popping noise for an added effect. Also, you can further increase the unpredictable nature of the product by using the accessory timer to control when and how long you want your Inflatable Scarecrow to run. Elevating the Scare Dancer® will also help enhance its effectiveness (See Extending the Scare Dancer®). Quickly the pests are forced to find another feeding area and will stop coming back altogether.
