Pest control has been an issue for humankind since immemorial times, regardless of the size of the menace, those who suffered it thought of an idea to repel it. Times have changed and science has made much progress since those days in which we set up traps with cheese for mice.
Electronic pest repellers are devices that use electrical power to keep the undesired bugs or animals away from a determinate surface. They can go from deer to ants using the same principle and can be found in two different versions:[/vc_column_text][vc_message color="info" message_box_style="outline"]
[/vc_message][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]Effectiveness in these methods has been questioned thoroughly and side effects have also been found. Nevertheless, some users have claimed this method is great and has solved their pest problems overnight. Will this be a magic solution or not? Read on to find out which are the best –and the worst- options available.
This might be the most powerful repeller of the whole section; it can cover an entire acre of ravens, blackbirds, crows, grackles, cormorants and any other bird that dares to enter your air space. It also features the Woodpecker chip, using predatory sounds that repel yellow-bellied sapsuckers northern flickers and downy woodpeckers among others.
It has a built in amplifier and speaker that will last for a lifetime and can be mounted very easily to fences or posts wherever you like with the included mounting bracket; just install it and forget about it (yes, it is that easy). Another very important feature is that the whole device is inside a water-proof enclosure, so weather is not an issue. The system that this product uses shares the same principle airports do when fighting birds settlements, and that is that some specific sounds or combinations of them act as natural repellents.
This product is digitally high fidelity and with the support of the microprocessor, it never “wears out”, sounds exactly as it should every day. Sounds can be changed and exchanged to avoid birds from getting used to intervals and lose its repelling power. This product is an excellent choice for those looking for a repeller to use in the garden or farm.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="See Price and full features" align="center" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2JUyXkO||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow"][vc_zigzag el_border_width="8"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
This is a great product utilizing the aforementioned ultrasonic technology. The good thing about the Hoont product is that it is made for commercial use, hence is more powerful than traditional home use ones. Another key feature is that it uses an auto-frequency changing mechanism that automatically changes the levels of the frequency in very fast intervals to ensure the optimum effectiveness at all times. Mice, rats and other rodents get comfortable if the frequency is constant but if it changes all the time it becomes annoying all the time.
This is a great product for those of us who don´t believe killing rodents is a way of getting rid of them, because it has a 5,000 square feet of action area, therefore, installing a single Hoont pest repellent will be immediately effective in most houses, plus you won´t find corpses or any disgusting surprises, they will simply leave. If you´re willing to spend a little over a hundred dollars, this is an awesome choice.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="See Price & full features" align="center" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FHoont-Commercial-Grade-Electronic-Rodent-Eliminator%2Fdp%2FB00UK8MJJ2%3Ftag%3Dmvpest-20||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow"][vc_zigzag el_border_width="8"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
Crossing the one hundred dollars barrier downwards we have this great pest repeller made by one of the biggest brands in the market as is Black & Decker. What to say about it? Nothing except that it is a synonym of trust and sturdiness. The coverage area is a little smaller than the previous one, but this pest repeller is made for homes.
The great thing is that it is a one-for-all package in which you can select the frequency to attack spiders, mice or cockroaches among many other pests. It is a very nice-looking artifact completely black and with just a speaker and the brand on the front panel; it could pass as a regular speaker if you don´t dig deeper in it. On the other hand, it only weighs a pound and is very small (four inches deep, four inches high and nine inches wide), so it can be easily hidden anywhere. It is safe to be used with all sizes of home pets, including fish and birds.
If you want a sturdy and reliable pest repeller under one hundred dollars from a great brand that´s easy to use, this EP1100-A is made for you.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="See Price and full features" align="center" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FBlack-Decker-EP1100-Ultrasonic-Repeller%2Fdp%2FB0007CXT8G||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow"][vc_zigzag el_border_width="8"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
In a similar fashion as the previous one, this great device looks just like an old wooden radio speaker, but make no mistake, it is very powerful covering 3,000 square feet of surface and leaving it pest-free. It is useful against mice, rats, bats, squirrels and any other pest you can think of but it is safe to use it with non-rodent pets (if you have a hamster, then don´t!).
Manufacturers advertise it as sixty times more powerful than other ultrasonic devices and it really is heavier but way tinier than many other devices of the same kind and is greatly powerful for its size, not sixty times, but surely a great little package.
The use it probably shines for is for outside cottages or country homes that one may go to visit for a couple of weeks or so since it´s so portable and powerful. Once you get to the location you just turn it on, let it work on it for a couple of hours and voilá, you won´t have to worry about no bugs or rodents near your family.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="See Price & Full Features" align="center" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2uOE6pR||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_zigzag el_border_width="8"][vc_column_text]
This is a very powerful pest-repeller that features four modes of operation to maximize the effectiveness over all kinds of plagues and rodents. The first and most important is the variable ultrasonic sounds that are very effective since they are continuously changing avoiding the pests to be comfortable with it.
If it is set in an unobstructed area, the reach is an amazing 5,000 square feet and thanks to the electromagnetic capabilities; the inner wall protection is possible too.
Finally the two major features this affordable and great repeller has are the odor remover to reduce the mosquitoes and the negative ion producer that kills and repel airborne viruses. This is the best of the electronic pest control devices listed in this article in a price vs capabilities rank.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="See Price & full features" align="center" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2NLuLWJ||target:%20_blank|rel:nofollow"][vc_message message_box_style="solid" message_box_color="warning"]The question still remains: do electronic pest repellers work? We found this list of the bottom five articles not to buy in the everlasting crusade to finish the pests at home.[/vc_message][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
This really cheap unit can very well be a scam, customers are saying: “flies and bugs fly right in front of it…” Don´t even waste less than $20 on it.
The customers are saying something like “I actually want to rate this as a minus zero!” Enough said, we rest our case.
There´s only one word in the mouth of the customers to describe this device: “fake”.
This one is under $10 but the customers are basically saying that it´s another fake “does not work”.
Most customers are saying that this device between $10 and $20 does not make any difference and that mosquitoes, flies and roaches are still happy to be home.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

There are all sorts of opinions about this specific question, there are those who say that it cleaned their house in two weeks without the use of poisonous chemicals or dangerous traps and those who say that literally “flies fly in front of it” without a single result in months. For what we have seen in the reviews, there are scams and also very serious companies (like Black & Decker) who wouldn´t put out a non-working pest-control system to make extra money. So, if you stick to the good ones, then you should be fine. The other question is: are ultrasonic pest repellers safe? That´s where all reviews agree, they are perfectly safe for humans.

The most important side effect is habituation, because all bugs and animals get used to the annoying sound of the ultrasonic high frequency and can live with it, throwing all our money to the thrash immediately. This is exactly why the response to the question do ultrasonic pest repeller work on mice is yes as long as the frequency is variable, otherwise it will become useless. Side effects on human or house pets are close to none, because 99% of us can´t hear a frequency above 20,000Hz, nevertheless, there are testimonies of people who do (1% of humankind).
