Mosquitoes, rodents, cockroaches, and other insects are creatures that no one likes having around in their houses. If their numbers keep on increasing day by day because of ignoring the existence, then it could be a recipe for many diseases, besides damage to the house itself. Considering this fact, in recent times, many pest control and insect control solutions and devices have been introduced into the market. Using these pest control systems at regular intervals cleans off their colonies and frees your home from these messy and troublesome creatures. One such pest control device which is increasingly being preferred by many people around the world is the ultrasonic pest repeller. It is also known as an electronic pest repeller.
What is an Ultrasonic Pest Repeller?
At the outset, I would like to answer the basic question regarding what is an ultrasonic repeller? An ultrasonic pest repeller works by killing insects, rodents, and mosquitoes, by emitting high frequency or ultrasonic sound. These high tech devices emit frequencies that range from 30kHz to 55kHz, which is ideal to drive the pests insane. But how is it possible to kill all these creatures with the help of ultrasonic sound? Well, the logic behind this invention is that the high energy waves actually act as repellents to any creatures that come in its path. Human beings cannot hear these high frequency waves, however, these are very much audible to those tiny creatures. Mice, mosquitoes and rodents get irritated with this noise and therefore run away from your house. Unlike the traditional methods of pest control, ultrasonic pest repellers are quite reasonable, which means that everyone can afford to use them. Now there are different types of pest repellers. The range of frequency is the most important factor deciding the type of repeller. The type of pest repeller depends upon the type of insects you have in your home. The frequency needed to repel cockroaches and mice are different from the one required to repel mosquitoes.
Ultrasonic Pest Repellers - Do They Work?
So why has such a doubt come up whether these repellents actually work or not! The answer is, unfortunately, it's not found to work very well This is because the makers of ultrasonic pest repellers have claimed many things before being introduced in the market, however no scientific support has been found to the logic that is used in the electronic pest repellers. Another reason behind this is that most of the insects and rodents are quite familiar and used to the high frequency sounds produced by these devices. They therefore remain unaffected, thus making the device a worthless investment. Disappointed? But still there's a ray of hope. You can 'expect' the pest repeller to work well if it has the ability to change the frequency of sounds that it emits. This is because mice and rodents are not used to changing frequencies, and therefore might get irritated due to it. The high frequency sound does not work if it encounters a solid obstacle in its way. So if the passage between the ultrasonic pest repeller and the insect is clear, then probably you can expect the pest repeller to serve its purpose. Though, ultrasonic pest repellers are an inexpensive mode of getting rid of pests. Moreover, the maintenance expenses are quite low, and also these devices do not require a huge amount of electricity to work.
It is very much important to use proper pest control systems in order to get rid of the pest at home. Electronic pest repellers seem to be a good and inexpensive option. However, some recent negative reports have actually doubted their working ability, and therefore raised the question - ultrasonic pest repellers, do they work? You can refer to some of the ultrasonic pest control reviews to get a better understanding. But we have seen that we can at least 'expect' ultrasonic pest repellers to work by changing the sound frequency and using them in a clear passage.
