Does ultrasonic rodent repellent work?

There are many rodent repellents out there. Chemical based, natural remedies, baited traps. However, mouse populations can quickly get out of control. Catching one mouse doesn’t mean the infestation is under control. There will always be more. Always.

Electronic devices releasing electromagnetic frequencies or high pitched sound are a common repellent. However, they’re short-term fixes.

What is UltraSonic rodent repellent?

There’s many different electronic pest controls. Ultrasonic is one of the most popular. The device emits short wavelength, high frequency sound waves. This sound is too high pitched to be heard by humans. We cannot hear sounds highers than 20 kHz, but some animals, such as rodents, can identify noise in the ultrasonic range. Some insects can detect frequencies from 50,000 Hz to 100,000Hz. UltraSonic Rodent Repellent is designed to produce sounds high enough to deter rodents.

There is no legitimate data confirming the effectiveness of the device

Some places on the internet offer anecdotal information of their success, but there is no successful data proving their legitimacy. However, there may be short-term pest control. Mice and other rodents will easily move out of the sound’s range to another part of your home. Almost half the sound energy is depleted within 15 feet of the UltraSonic device. Also, pests can get used to constant noise.

Negatives of an UltraSonic rodent repellent

  • Rodents like hard to reach places where the bulky device cannot fit.
  • Mice quickly get used to the sound.
  • It has a short coverage distance of around 15 feet.
  • Sound waves can’t go through objects.

More useful rodent repellents

The best way to avoid infestation is by preventing the problem from evening starting. Seal holes on the inside and outside of your home. Mice and others can fit through tiny holes. It’s also smart to keep your building clean. Free of clutter and mess reduces the smell of food or places to hide. Properly cover garbage and food in tightly sealed containers.
