I shopped online for a couple weeks before deciding to purchase The Guardian. In the meantime, I shopped around Jacksonville, FL for a similar device, none to be found. When I received the device, I called customer service for help on setting for squirrels, the lady was a great help, totally understood the item and how to (and how not to) set it. I also asked her about mounting it on an oscillating fan to cover more area. She saw no problem, but didn't know if it would help.
I must say The Guardian is a remarkable gadget for squirrels. With the oscillating, it covers probably 180 degrees and goes out about sixty or seventy feet. You can tell by the squirrel mess photo how much I have needed this. During the past year and a half, I have trapped and carried away over two hundred squirrels. No more trapping! Your customer service is excellent, as is the product. Thanks for all your help.
Update: The oscillating seems definitely to work, covers area of both trees, probably 180 degrees. The important part of this particular fan is the weight — holds securely. If you build something in the future it would be really good. I'd recommend something that drives like a stake into the ground to hold securely. Thanks again, for a fine product and all your help. The squirrels no longer even hang out in the trees.
Within 10 days, the bats were all gone.“Even our neighbors can't believe I got rid of them that easy and that fast.”

We haven't seen any signs of mice since we plugged in the units.“We keep birdseed in the storage building and have been particularly impressed that we haven't had any mice in the unit. I would strongly recommend these units.”
