Rodent infestations are some of the most feared pest problems for many reasons. Rats, mice, and other rodents can carry diseases, damage our homes, create fire hazards, and spread filth. If you’ve spotted these pests on your property, effective rodent control is in order. Some people attempt to go the DIY route and use an ultrasonic pest repellent device, but there are several problems with this type of solution. To learn more about the flaws of ultrasonic mouse repellent, read on for input from our rodent control technicians at Anderson Pest Solutions. We have been conducting mouse and rat removal around Illinois & Indiana for generations and have learned all of the intricacies of rodent control in the process.

What is Electronic Rodent Repellent?

When people decide to go forward with electronic rodent repellent options, they are counting on a noise-focused approach to rodent control. You can purchase electronic pest control devices in stores that emit a consistent, sharp frequency above 20 kilohertz. This is out of the range of human hearing, but many kinds of animals can hear far beyond this frequency. The consistency of the noise is purported to drive out rats, mice, and other pests living inside your home.

Do Ultrasonic Pest Repellers Work?

Electronic pest repellents sound like a great idea; they’re presented as safe, easy ways to keep mice and rats out of your home. However, as you might already be imagining, these devices come with a few inherent problems that are impossible to get around. Here are a few of the shortcomings of ultrasonic pest repellent:

  • They rely on the rodent being in their path to work
  • Pests can eventually acclimate to the sound and continue to live in the environment
  • They only affect rodents that are in close proximity to the device
  • Furniture and walls can block the weak sound waves produced by the devices
  • These devices irritate our cats and dogs who can hear sounds in this range, too

As you can see, there are a variety of reasons why ultrasonic pest repellers fall short of a consistent rodent removal option.

Reliable Pest Control for Rats and Mice

It’s obvious that these devices only work under very specific conditions, if at all. When a rodent invasion is underway in your home or business, you need a solution you can count on to work quickly and efficiently. Rats, mice, and other rodents endanger your property and its inhabitants via diseases, bacteria, and risk for other safety hazards.
