If you have a pest or rodent problem in your home, the chances are you’re searching for a quick, guaranteed fix to get them out and stop them coming back. Unwanted animals in your home like rats and mice can cause a health hazard by contaminating food and even cause structural damage or destroy furniture. Unfortunately, a miracle cure does not exist and pest problems will persist. However, there are various products on the market that claim to make a significant difference and help improve the situation.
One of these items is the ultrasonic pest repeller. These ultrasonic devices are designed to emit high-frequency sound waves beyond the limit of human hearing, generally over 20,000 Hz, which classes them as ‘ultrasonic.’ Ultrasonic sound waves are supposedly intolerable to certain animals, notably rodents and insects, but are silent to the human ear and safe for most household pets. But, how effective exactly are these devices?
