Do sonic repellers work on rats?

Ultrasonic Rodent Repellent devices
These repellers work by plug sockets. Similar to Naphthalene it is believed that the frequency of ultrasonic soundwaves needed to repel rats and mice effectively would be high enough to cause harm and damage to pets and humans.

It is also important to find out if electronic rodent repellents actually work.

Ultrasonic pest repellers are ineffective according to research. Both online and retail devices don't have enough power to kill pests. They are too far away and emit too weak sound waves to repel insects. Other pests do not react.

You might also wonder, "What smell will repel rats?" Rats are highly sensitive to certain smells due to their keen sense of smell. Castor oil, peppermint oil and citronella oils all drive rats away. You can either soak cotton balls in the oils or spread some oil around where they are currently staying to make them leave for more pleasant climes.

So, can ultrasonic pest repellers really be effective?

Summary: Ultrasonic pest repellers emit high frequency sounds that are claimed to reduce pest infestation in homes. However, laboratory tests have revealed that most of these devices don't work as advertised and violate the FTC guidelines.

What is the life expectancy of ultrasonic pest repellents?

Three to five years
