The Havahart Spray Away Elite II electronic animal repellent was the clear winner for this year’s Golden Shovel Readers’ Choice Award.

Havahart®, the leading producer of humane wildlife control products, announces that its Spray Away® Elite II electronic animal repellent has been named the winner in the Golden Shovel Readers’ Choice Award by The Gardening Product Review (GPR). The GPR conducted a nationwide vote, asking their readers to vote for their favorite gardening product from the pool of products tested and reviewed by their staff during the past year. The highest number of votes determined the winner. This year, the Spray Away Elite II motion activated sprinkler repellent was the top vote-getter.

“Every year we ask our readers to vote for their favorite product from all of the items we have reviewed that year,” says Monica Hemingway, Editor at The Gardening Products Review. “The Havahart Spray Away Elite II sprinkler animal repellent was a clear winner for this year’s Golden Shovel Readers’ Choice Award.”

The Spray Away Elite II motion activated sprinkler repellent features a 3.5 gallon water basin, eliminating the need for a garden hose connection and giving users the freedom to protect any area. The unit uses solar-powered, infrared sensors to detect an animal’s movement and heat as far away as 35 feet. When an animal is detected, the Spray Away emits a sudden burst of water along with unexpected noise and motion. This effect scares away animals of all sizes, from cats to deer, without harming them. Robustly designed, the eco-friendly Spray Away uses only two to three cups of water per activation to cover 1,900 square feet.

“The Spray Away Elite II was designed to provide a humane and effective way to protect lawns and gardens from unwanted animals,” says Stephanie Vansyckle, Category Development Manager at Havahart. “It’s an honor to have our end user community select the Elite II as this year’s favorite gardening product. Our customers love that the unit is portable, powered by the sun, safe to use around kids and pets and safely scares away critters around the clock.”

The Spray Away Elite II is available for purchase online at Havahart.com. For more information on the Elite II and other humane wildlife control products, visit http://www.havahart.com.
