Great for insects and keeping rodents from living in the home
on 30 April 2015
Bought 2 of these some years ago mainly for insects...NOT mice or rats....and I can tell you that they DO work.(on insects at least).For some reason we have a lot of wood lice and come the winter time spiders too...and my wife has a phobia so I went ahead and bought 2 of these to cover the whole house as recomended..Where the hell the wood lice were coming from was beyond me as they would just appear from nowhere in the middle of the room...and spiders of course look for winter shelter in houses especially if windows are left open....Anyway...I fitted these on opposite ends of the house on an outside wall.,this should cover around 120 square metres and about 2/3 months the reduction in these pesky critters was dramatic..I set the pulse as intermittant...this changes the signal so the critters dont get used to the sound...You can check this sound by a switch on the side and every so often you will notice a different pattern...this also tells you its working...
How do I know they work you may ask....well I had noticed the increase in wood lice and spiders and never even gave the device a thought,because once fitted you basically forget them and upon inspection I had found the one in the lounge had broken..The green light was on but when I tested the sound it was all warbly so I decided to replace it with a new one.....and hey presto....the little buggers have all but gone again...You might encounter the odd one or two...there's always a Kamakasi even in the insect world,but the reduction has made me and especially my wife very happy..As to the mice and rats....Yes...you may get them still inside your house.What you have to remember.... they may not be actually living in the house...they are most likely making a visit and this device is NOT for that purpose..it will make them very uncomfortable to live in your home....but nearby they will most likely still have a nest...it only works in the confines of the house itself and prevents them from nesting there....maybe some vermin control outside too would help those that have them living nearby....Cheers
