As we roll into the fall and winter months, food for predators can become a bit more scarce and harder to find. It is important to be especially vigilant during these times to keep our flock safe. Another type of predator proofing that we added to our coop are Nite Guard Solars. We wanted to add them for a few reasons.
- They work year round.
- We don’t have to remember to turn them on. It’s automatic!
- We don’t need to plug them in or change the batteries. They are solar powered.
Immediately we were thrilled with the results. We no longer noticed as many tracks around the coop and run area. Even the deer stopped munching on the surrounding gardens! Fast forward to today, two years later, and all four of our Solar Nite Guards still work like new! Despite the harsh weather of the Northeast and the salty air from the sea, they continue to blink from dusk until dawn every single day. We can’t imagine the coop without them.
