Because there are plenty of over-the-counter products that claim to rid a home or business of pests, many property owners attempt to solve their pest problems on their own. Unfortunately, most of these so-called pest solutions offer only temporary infestation relief and are often expensive and ineffective. One such product is ultrasonic pest repellent.
What Is Ultrasonic Pest Repellent?
Store-bought ultrasonic pest repellant devices plug directly into the electrical outlets inside your home. The devices claim to repel, injure, or kill pests and insects such as rodents, cockroaches, fleas, and spiders by emitting short-range, high-frequency sound waves.
Is Ultrasonic Pest Repellent Effective?
Hard to tell. The alleged high-frequency sounds that emanate from the device can only be heard by the pest they supposedly repel, so there is no real way to test that the ultrasonic pest repellent device is even working except for an illuminated indicator light. Basically, these devices only serve to annoy the pests, not remove them.
While some people report a reduction in the visibility of pests after installing ultrasonic pest repellant devices, the product does not permanently solve their infestation. Most likely, the high-frequency sounds only drive the pests deeper into the walls, floors, or attic of their home. Pest removal experts agree that ultrasonic pest repellents are ineffective. To permanently eliminate an infestation, youâ€™ll require the services of pest removal professionals.
