When a home or business owner notices signs of a pest infestation, they often attempt to take matters into their own hands. Fortunately, there are multiple do-it-yourself pest removal sprays, traps, and devices on the market that claim to eliminate pests for good. Unfortunately, these methods rarely offer effective pest control solutions. One such method uses high-frequencies to repel pests. Here is some useful information to review before investing in electronic ultrasonic pest repellent devices.
What It Claims
Store bought ultrasonic repellent devices claim and to emit intense, high-frequency sound waves that repel, injure, or kill pests and insects such as rodents, cockroaches, fleas, and spiders.
Does It Work?
There is no true way to test the effectiveness of ultrasonic repellent devices. The device plugs directly into a wall outlet and only offers an indicator light to let you know it is turned on. It is also silent as its short-range, high-frequency sounds cannot be heard by humans. Basically, you plug them in, cross your fingers, and wait for the pest to be driven away.
The General Consensus
Pest removal experts and the FTC agree that commercial ultrasonic pest repellents are ineffective. While the high-frequencies can temporarily keep pests at bay, ultimately, they will become immune to the sound and return. Think of it this way: If your pest infestation is a disease, then ultrasonic pest repellent is a band-aid. To truly cure and eliminate your infestation, youâ€™ll need expert pest removal services.
