This is the only thing that worked

Hi had some teeth issues to begin with but it was fixed by the vendor.
Vendor answered calls promptly and the new device works fine and has been working for a number of years. It has deterred the possums who no longer eat my lemons. Show details

Bird gard just does what they claim it will

Tried Bird Gard and tried the cheap pretenders - there's only 1 that works and my possums hate our Bird Gards. When I had some questions, Darren and the team at Bird Gard patiently answered all of the questions clearly and completely. Show details ·  1

Works well and excellent customer service

Very good product. Works much better than similar ones on the market. Very good instructions came with the product and excellent quick responding customer service. If you have a possum problem I highly recommend this product. Show details

Disappointed, does not work

Positioned them on the fence facing the direct line of the possums & they walked right over the top of them. Tried different ways, different locations. No luck. Can not recommend. Show details

Don’t waste your money

Does not work, most overpriced, overhyped piece of plastic I have purchased. Only thing this would deter is humans so damn noisy, apparently the pesky pigeons don't mind the noise. Don't waste your time and money on this product.  Show details

The Bird Gard Possum Deterrent does not work for me

It was installed and permanently on only 3 metres away from a healthy hedge of Star Jasmine which was being kept at about a metre by Ringtail possums..It was on a 33cm pot and definitely facing the right way
After installation the machine appeared to work for a few days and I was optimistic
The possums seem to have become immune to the machine and now after many weeks of rain and good growing conditions the Star Jasmine plants have not grown at all. Any new growth soon disappears. I am a nurseryman with 50 years experience and the plants are well looked after and healthy but extremely hard pruned by the possums

No success

I purchased the Bird Gard a couple of months ago to try and stop ringtail possums destroying my wisteria. I spoke to the company and moved it after it didn’t work in the first position. Still not having any luck. Possums are back every night. Hasn’t made any difference. Very frustrated. I was really hoping it would solve the problem given how positive all the reviews were. Show details

Worked immediately

A rose over an arbour was being constantly grazed by a possum. I would get up every morning with possum pee and poo all over my front step and the rose chewed to bare stems.
I put up the Bird Gard Possum Deterent and it worked immediately. Within 4 days my rose has new shoots my door step is clean and the possum has gone on to easierm pickings. THANK YOU! Show details

Instant Success

I recently installed the Possum Deterrent after putting up with the little devils messing all over my deck and a stone paving area below. The success was instant. After following the clear and simple installation instructions and tips, I was pleased to wake up the next day with no mess to clean up. The unit has been installed now for a week and I gone from having to clean up dozens of possum poo pellets every morning to now none. Could not be happier with the product, and also I found Darren from Bird Gard very helpful when I called and also very responsive following up on the delivery given the recent delays.

No hesitation is recommending Bird Gard Show details

Solved my Possum Problem

I live near a park with possums who would walk along my fence dropping their business all along the fence line and screeching at night. Since having this they have moved on. I turned it off for a while and my neighbor asked if I was still using it as the possums were eating his oranges. I turned it back on and my neighbors oranges were untouched once again. There are different settings for the frequency so it targets specific pests. My kids can hear it at certain frequencies but it does not bother them. I don’t turn it up full blast and leave it on sensor mode so it’s only activated at night. Ive has it for 3 + years now. Great product. Show details ·  3

We still have possums around but they don't eat our trees anymore

We have been using 2 devices for about 2 years. Prior to that we had lost one Golden Robinia and were about to lose a Mop Top. With help from the company, We hard wired and sited two devices. Possums are still around but no longer dining on our trees.
Some visitors (few) can hear the sound wave and one such visitor is disturbed by it.
I think all of our grandkids can hear it but it disturbs none of them.
Good gear! Show details

Effective Device with Quick Results

Great device - very easy to set up.

We had a real possum infestation in our garden - they were eating everything as well as making a huge mess with droppings etc. After installing one unit we noticed results and the possum activity moved as far away from the device as it could. So we then installed a second unit at the opposite end of the yard and this seems to have substantially reduced possum activity at ground level and pushed them higher into the trees.

One issue is that the power adaptor isn't water-proof - not ideal for a device that is advertised as being weather resistant. We've just covered ours in plastic.

Questions & Answers

Hello, we have a possum problem. They are in our roof cavity (which is small as we have a flat roof) we hear them at night leaving the cavity and exiting from the roof to near by trees. The return (like clockwork and squeeze into the cavity to (I assume sleep) all day. I think their entry point to our home is above a bedroom, so can you recommend device ? Would it be in the roof or outside?

Thank you,
John

All these things come into play when repelling possums. Think of the high frequency sound/ultrasonics as being like a beam of light, if something blocks it a sound shadow is created.

Hi There, I am often hearing a very high pitched sound intermittent at night and sometimes very high pitched which seems like it is coming from a neighbours place -how far does the frequency travel for both a possum deterrent and a bird deterrent? Are there laws regarding use of these in urban settings. Also is hearing this constant high pitch frequency damaging for human ears? Also are these deterrents remotely controlled and how long does the battery last before it needs recharging? Also if my neighbour does use a device like this what will block the signal to stop it coming into my place? Thanks Alot Carmen
