In this article, we will provide answers to few important questions that comes to our mind while using an ultrasound rodent repellent. Here are the questions and their answers.
- How does such repellent work?
When you plug in the ultrasonic repellent to an electrical point then with the help of electronic circuits it emits ultrasonic sound, which is at a particular frequency that is not audible to humans, but rodents are very sensitive to that sound. The sound at this frequency will create too much stress in them and will compel them to run away. It is much better than any trap or chemicals that are traditionally used for trapping these rodents.
- Is it possible that the rodent will get used to such ultra frequency sounds?
It is not possible. This repellent uses very complex sound frequency with various amplitudes and frequency that will keep changing and hence they can never get used to it.
- Can this ultrasonic sound disturb family pets too?
Your pet cats or dogs will be least disturbed with such frequencies. These frequencies are fixed in such a way that rats, mice, guinea pigs and squirrels only get disturbed.
- Can this ultrasound pass through walls?
In fact, this ultrasonic sound behaves more like light than sound and hence cannot pass through the wall. Therefore, you need to install separate repellent in each room.
- How much area does it cover?
The best ultrasonic pest repeller may cover around 20 feet distance. In case, you are going to use in large go down then you need to use multiple numbers of repellents to be effective.
- How much power does it consume?
Power consumption is pretty low. Only 2 watts of power is consumed in 24 hours. If you calculate the monthly consumption of power then it will be merely 1.5 units if you use it for 24 hours.
- After installing it how much time will it take to be effective?
You will realize its effect after a week. You will find that the activities of rodents have drastically reduced. If you do not see any better results within 2 to 3 weeks then you need to install another unit to be more effective.
- What is the life of such repellent?
It can give useful service for at least 5 to 6 years.
- Can it also repel others pests like ants, cockroaches or insects?
There may be little effect on few pests, but there is no definite guarantee how much it can affect them.
- Where these repellents are most effective?
These repellents are effective in any enclosed rooms, offices, go downs, kitchen etc. where there is no too much noise and disturbance. Its effect will not be felt in open space like garden, market area or patios.
- Can these ultrasound repellents affect the working of any other equipment?
No, it makes no effect in any other electronic equipment. People using pacemaker may be assured that it will not disturb them. Neither your remote TV or garage opener will be influenced by it.
