Attic Squirrel Control and Rat Control by means of ultrasonic repellent pest control, Ultrasonic Squirrel / Rat / Mice/ Raccoon Repellents, Ultrasonic Repellers?
Been there, done that too! I wish I had my money back. That Ultrasonic Repellent thing was expensive and the owner of the company told me how great it would work. Yeah buddy. Several of the leading vertebrate pest specialists - PhD. Professors, experts in pest control have tried to get the Federal Trade Commission to ban Ultrasonic Repellent Pest Control devises because they DO NOT WORK! The Federal Trade Commission has published a warning to all ultrasonic pest repeller manufacturers and retailers. There may be an initial effect but research shows that the pests return and become habituated (get used to the noise). How long do ultrasonics work? Research shows that the repelling effect last for 1-3 days, but after 3-7 days the pests become habituated to the noise and continue living in the space not bothered enough to leave their home. Additional research confirms that ultrasonic pest repellers may have a partial or transitory effect, but have no persistent effectiveness. Most academic researchers urge legislatures and consumers to view ultrasonic pest repellents with skepticism. The New York State Consumer Protection Board cautions against using ultrasonic repellers. In addition to this, contrary to the claims of many ultrasonic pest control device sellers, there is scientific evidence that some of these devices cause hearing loss in pets, most especially dogs . Even the US Army does not approve of ultrasonic pest control devices.
With the Rodent Strobe line of pest control strobe lights the problem of habituation is completely solved. The rodents can not adapt to the constant high intensity lightning bright flashes. We have found that if a squirrel or rat is living in a house wall that it accesses through a space that is protected by a high intensity strobe that the squirrel or rat will give up going to its nesting area in the wall. It just is not worth it - see our How It Works page.
Attic squirrels and rats are good mothers. If their young are in what the rodent mother deems an "unsafe" area she will move them to another place that she sees as safe. We recommend that a person using our pest control strobe lights simply turn off the strobes for a few hours at a time during the first few days to allow the mothers to move their young. Then when all the attic squirrels, rats, raccoons, etc., are gone - turn on the strobes and leave them on (they are extremely energy efficient - only 4.8 watts for our squirrel control strobe). Problem solved! No dead, rotting squirrels or rats. No dead or sick family pets. No repeating and repeating the squirrel trapping, or rat trapping nightmare.
