How does it work?
Unlike many other repellers on the market the PestBye Whole House Rat and Mice repeller combines both ultrasonic and electro-magnetic technology.
Ultrasound is a loud noise at a high frequency: it’s too high for humans and domestic pets to hear, but is thought to be audible to most rodents. We imagine that, for a mouse, it’s like having a smoke alarm going off constantly.Whenever electricity passes through a wire, an electromagnetic field is created: it has been suggested that electromagnetic fields create an environment where rodents are less likely to nest. Rodents are likely to move away from a house where they cannot nest.
We hope that most problems will disappear within a few days. However, if the rodents have already built a nest in your house, they are unlikely to desert their young until they are old enough to move.
Fortunately, rodents mature quickly and the babies will be fully grown within a month. If you suspect that there is a nest in your house it may be worth using traps as well, but remember that traps alone do not provide a long-term solution to your problem and if you leave traps or poison down, you’re also leaving a highly-scented bait that will attract the rodents.
You can combine 2 or more devices and/or single room-by-room ultrasonic devices to get rid of the problem quickly.
Our Rat and Mouse pest repellers have not been found to affect cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, amphibians or children. The device may affect rodent pets such as gerbils, hamsters or chinchillas.
If you do have such a pet, it’s advisable to rehouse them while the device is switched on – either outside/in a shed (at least 2m away from any wiring connected to the house) or with a friend or neighbour.
Our pest repellers will not affect any electrical equipment like computers or burglar alarms.
