Watch: Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller Test
Russ Chastain 05.24.18
Rodents, especially mice and rats, cause a tremendous amount of damage each year. Traps are a hassle to use–not to mention unsanitary–and poisons also have their downsides. But what about simply repelling the critters? Can that even be done effectively? I’d love to think so, because once a mouse moves in, eviction can be next to impossible.
In this video, mouse man Shawn Woods tests the “Victor PESTCHASER Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller,” an electronic device that supposedly emits high-pitched sounds (it’s also a night light, oooooo) to deter critters.
I could have predicted the results of his test, considering my uncle’s experience in his hunt camp, but the entire video is less than 5 minutes long, so why not hear him out? And I have to say, the results are definitive.
Suffice it to say that I will not be spending any of my money on these things.
