Eliminating pests from your property can be an expensive and sometimes, uncomfortable process. If you’re looking for a more convenient, and humane, alternative to the exterminator and chemical treatments, ultrasonic pest repellents may be just what you’re looking for. This post is going to discuss what ultrasonic pest repellents are and how they work. We’ll also outline the main benefits of this method of pest control.
By the end, you’ll be able to make an informed decision about whether using an ultrasonic pest repellent is the right choice for you.
What are ultrasonic pest repellents?
Ultrasonic pest repellents are a new method for keeping your property free of pests. Whether that’s furry critters or annoying bugs and insects, not everyone wants to share their home with wildlife. Not everyone wants to kill that wildlife in order to keep them away, which is where ultrasonic pest repellents come in. They are new devices that use high frequency sound to repel pests from your property. The sound is inaudible to humans and most pets so will only irritate pests. Using sound as a repellent is safe, convenient, cheap, humane and can run 24/7 without impacting your lifestyle.
How do ultrasonic pest repellents work?
A typical ultrasonic pest repellent will be a plastic cube powered by battery or mains power. It may include a motion detector or it may not. It will include an ultrasonic noise emitter that will either play the sound permanently or use a motion detector to play the sound when it detects a pest. Either way, ultrasonic pest repellents protect your property and your family without using chemicals, requiring you move out for days or covering your yard in chemicals. Ultrasonic pest repellents will work on ants, roaches, mice, rats and other rodents, deer, skunks, possums, snakes and a wide range of insects and small mammals. All are sensitive to one degree or another to ultrasonic noise.
The main benefits of ultrasonic pest repellents
If you’re looking to protect your home from curious critters or more serious pests, an ultrasonic pest repellent could be the answer you’re looking for.
Their primary benefits include:
Safe to use around children and pets
Many pest control products involve chemicals, traps, bait or other intrusive means. Those methods can put your family and pets at risk. Ultrasonic pest repellents are completely safe. The sound is inaudible to most pets and won’t harm children in any way.
No gardener wants to put unnecessary chemicals on their lawn or flower beds and no family wants poison or poisonous bait where their children or pets can get to it. That’s what is necessary with older methods of pest control. Not so with ultrasonic pest repellents. No poison, no traps, no chemicals, no risk.
Easy to use
Have you ever read the usage instructions on traditional pest control products? We have and we didn’t like them! They are complicated and include lots of warnings and lots of caveats. Ultrasonic pest repellents have none of those. Simply add some batteries or connect to the mains, place your device where pests enter your yard or property and switch it on. That’s it!
Portable and convenient
Critters started taking another route into your yard? Annoying the neighbors instead? You can install or move an ultrasonic pest repellent in seconds. Just pull it from the ground and place it where needed.
Fully automatic pest control
Best of all, ultrasonic pest repellents can provide 24/7 protection against the vast majority of household pests. Check the power every once in a while, and monitor for effectiveness, otherwise, it’s a fully automatic method of protecting your home and family. Ultrasonic pest repellents will not fix every pest problem and aren’t a magic bullet for every situation. However, used correctly, in the right situation they can be an incredibly useful tool for keeping pests off your property. Considering how cheap they are compared to an exterminator, they are definitely worth trying!
