From The Manufacturer

Say Goodbye to Cats and Other Garden Pests With Advanced Repellent Technology! The PestAway ultrasonic pest repeller keeps unwanted pests away. How It Works: Simply place the deterrent unit in your desired location, and watch as unwanted cats and animal pests are deterred from entering the 40 foot (12 meter) range of protection. As soon as a pest enters this area the unit emits an ultrasonic noise (only audible to the pest) and flashes ultra-bright strobe lights to effectively scare and keep pests far away.
