Winter can be a very difficult time for wild animals, and not all predators truly hibernate. Food is scarce and chickens make an easy target when they are hunting for food and hungry, especially at night. Nite Guard is solar-powered and features a flashing, red light that repels night animals naturally. The red light mimics an animal’s eye making predators think it poses a threat. The Nite Guard protects your flock against many nocturnal predators including owls, coyotes, opossum, raccoons, fox, bobcats, mink, weasels and more.
