There seem to be a lot of these available, but I wonder how effective they are, has anyone experience of any particular models?

Don't work.

Get some lion (or other big cat) poo.

Lion's poo is supposed to act as a deterrent to cats although I have not tried it.

In that case try dogs poo, that may deter them.

A Super Soaker (Mega Water pistol with a range of 10 yards or more) could deter the wee fellows, without injuring them.

Exactly what is it that solar powered cats deter?

Obviously I should have put the word "cat" before the word "solar", to satisfy grammar purists... I shall sit in the garden with my pipes to see if that's effective...

Although I am a cat 'slave', I've heard that something like Deep Heat spray applied to old dried out tea bags and scattered around the garden will deter cats. They don't like the smell (who does?). They aren't too keen on citrus either so orange peel might work, strategically placed.

BT Thanks, but I'm just looking for some sort of thing that can be set up and left...
