I STARTED A WA­TER FIGHT WITH FOXES

Stuff (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Don’t get me wrong, I like foxes. But their daily gar­den ‘mark­ings’ and 3am screams have forced me to start Op­er­a­tion Water­gun. A true nerd would have built his mo­tion-ac­ti­vated wa­ter pis­tol with a Rasp­berry Pi and PIR sen­sor, but I lazily bought mine. The Home De­fence Scare­crow (£42 / ama­zon.co.uk) has worked a treat, with my furry friends scur­ry­ing from its spray as if it were a gar­den-based ED-209. All I need to do is re­mem­ber not to walk in front of it. Mark Wilson, Fea­tures Edi­tor
