Used both indoors and outdoors, electronic repellents war off a whole range of unwanted visitors. These environmentally-friendly devices are an effective way of getting rid of rodents and insects. The ultrasonic device is a non-destructive method: it consists of repelling pests, not killing them. Ultrasonic devices pose no danger to humans or domestic animals.
Some animals react to high-frequency sounds that humans cannot hear. These ultrasounds cause unwanted animals to run away, without hurting or killing them.
This natural method preserves the environment and human health: these products use neither chemical products or poisons.
How does it work?
The effectiveness of the ultrasounds is based on the fact that they unsettle the nervous system and disrupt the feeding, communication and social habits of the targeted pests.
Initial results are visible after 3-15 days depending on the pests and the level of infestation. There will be a quick drop in rodent movements. As for insects, their level of activity may increase, as they are likely to be driven out of their refuge before moving away.
The location of the device is crucial for optimum efficiency. It depends on the selected area and target. For example: for rodents, it is preferable to place the device near and at the same level of the place where they come to feed.
Recommendations for use:
- Use a device that is appropriate for the size of the room. Several models are available from 45 to 325m².
- Do not place the device on carpeted areas, behind furniture or heavy curtains or objects, as they absorb the ultrasound waves.
- To effectively treat the problem, ensure that the device is operated continuously.
