So, it’s been a while since these ultrasonic pest repellents hit the market. A lot of people have already used these products for many kinds of pests in Canada and America. Some say it is the best experience they have had. At the same time, some complain that ultrasonic pest repellents are nothing but a scam.
We will not jump to conclusions right away. Instead, we will let you know some facts and figures about them. You can then decide whether you should opt for an ultrasonic pest control method or the traditional one.
Suppose you are worried about chemical exposure for controlling the pest in your house. In that case, you may have thought about these latest pest repellents that have nothing to do with any chemical – the ultrasonic pest repellents. But what are they, and how are they supposed to work? Let’s find out.
What Is An Ultrasonic Repellent?
An ultrasonic pest repellent is not like vaporizing repellent that we use for mosquitoes. Generally, those repellents work well. But ultrasonic repellents take sound into account and work by emitting deafening sound waves for the pest. Of course, humans cannot detect these wavelengths.
As the name suggests, ultrasound refers to the sound waves with higher frequencies than what humans can detect. So, we are totally fine, but what about the pest? We need ideal lab conditions for ultrasonic repellents to work.
Unfortunately, you cannot make it work in your house so far. What happens is that once these devices start emitting those soundwaves, the invading pests first get a little bothered, but then they adapt accordingly. This means that it’s not a big deal for the pest to adjust to this headache.
But there isn’t enough research to prove that they are entirely useless. According to general observation and hundreds of customers’ feedbacks, Ultrasonic pest repellents are not that effective yet.
Will They Work In The Future?
They most certainly will. You can consider the ultrasonic pest repellent a product that is currently undergoing experiments. This is the initial stage of something really amazing. Once science and tech people figure out these ultrasonic waves’ exact patterns that can really deter the pest, we will see their revolution soon.
Just like many other repellent technologies and solutions, we can hope that they will work for sure. But as of now, there are many ambiguities in the effectiveness of ultrasonic pest repellents. The best solution lies in contacting your local pest control experts to remove any pests in your house. And if you want to try some DIY pest control methods, you can go with some store-bought products like bait stations and traps. There are some rodenticides and pesticides also available in the market that work really well with pest control.
Since there is not enough data to back the effectiveness of these repellents, most people still rely on traditional pest control methods. You may need to hire professional pest control experts to get rid of those pests. It’s never too late, and you can always use some professional help. At least, you will not have to make those unnecessary trips to the store.
