Nite Guard Solar-Powered Night Predator Light, Model# NG-001
I read the mostly favorable reviews of this product and purchased it to deter the local wildlife from feeding on my trash when placed curbside the night before the early AM collection.
It was installed on a post facing the trash cans about 25 feet away. There was no effect. Trash all over the ground. Don't know if the culprit was a raccoon or bear.

Awesome Nite Guard Predator Light
This really keeps the predators away. I am the only one in my area who has not lost my free range chickens to predators because of this Nite Light. Affordable, well made, and a long life. I have recommended it to my neighbors who have chickens. I may buy more and place them where I can keep the raccoons away from my grapes also.

I had a coon come to visit my chickens. Didn't realize it the first day or two but thought that my numbers were going down. After examining the flock I saw there were quite a few laying hens missing. After that, it seemed each morning I was find 1 or 2 chickens laying dead outside the coops with all their insides eaten. Bought 4 of the night guards and placed them around and haven't had one go missing since the first night of installing them around the coops. They say they last about 4 years so I will be getting a few more later on. I sure do appreciate these little wonders.
P.S. All pro's, no con's on this product. I have them about 15 inches off the ground on different corners of two coops and they are working fine.;
I am a total beginner with this product but have had chickens many many years.

Works great and keeps predators away
We have installed the nite guard solar lights around our chicken coops a few months ago. Although we live in the woods with plenty of predatory animals we did not once have a problem with animals trying to get into the coop or houses. The lights work all night and I don't need to do anything, rain or shine they just work. We will get more for our house as well!

Nite Guard Solar-Powered Night Predator Light, Mod
It works wonderfully to keep raccoons, coyotes, deer and such out of the garden. We love the solar power since our garden isn't close to electric. We have another brand that eats batteries.

We bought 4 and mounted them around the sides of a 4" piece of 4x4 post. This hangs from a shepherd's hook, which can be moved around the yard for deer protection. They charged right up and are blinking intermittently all night. So far, so good.
Not so sure about moving this around all winter though, when the shrub browsing is generally the worst......

No predator blocker is 100%
I bought multiple items as suggested to surround barn area and set them at different heights for different predators. Have not had any bears in the area (and we had in the past) but still get an occasional shorter predator (not sure if weasel, raccoon or fox) in the area, but not as we'd had before. I tend to think moving the guards around every few days might also be a help in confusing the predators. Some reviews I have read say these are a hoax. I disagree. Not sure they are 100& effective, but they have certainly cut down on what comes into the yard since they were installed and for me that is a big win. Very little light causes the solar to recharge and that is great since we are in a wooded area and do not have direct sunlight on them when leaf canopy is out. Our chickens are safer thanks to using it. Try them., yourself. If they don't do what you'd like, they have a great return policy, but I bet you, as I did, will keep them as I really believe they DO help.

No More Coyotes
We live in the country and have livestock and a coyote problem. We have hunting dogs but the coyotes are not scared of them either. I had no idea how to deter them and while looking on the internet came across the Nite Guard Solar Light and thought why not try it. I installed them on the corners of my property according to directions and have no more problems with the coyotes coming up so close. They think it is something bigger than them!! They work great, no changing batteries because they are solar, and even work on mostly cloudy days. I have no complaints with this product, Love it!!

Solar powered predator light
The solar powered predator light, I purchased was just what the doctor ordered, I set it up about 24" inches above the ground facing away from my chickens, and quail, and have not had any more problems with predators, I was thrilled to know that they were available through northern tool and equipment, they are my go to company for all my tool and equipment needs.
