Are Ultrasonic Mouse Repellers the Answer to Your Rodent Problems?

By : Rita Stadler

One of the most recent developments in rodent repellents is the ultrasonic mouse repeller.  These devices work by sending ultrasonic waves through the air.  The claims are that this electromagnetic technology sends mice scurrying from the area, never to be seen again.

The theory of these ultrasonic mouse repellers sounds logical, but consumer feedback and side-by-side testing suggests these repellers may not be everything they are advertised to be.

How Ultrasonic Mouse Repellers Work

A typical ultrasonic mouse repeller, or electronic rodent repeller, is plugged into an electric socket in the area where mice are a problem.  The electricity generates ultrasonic waves that are beamed out into the area.  When a mouse or other rodent travels into the path of the ultrasonic waves, they feel the waves and leave the area.

Potential Ultrasonic Repeller Problems

One of the first problems you might encounter with an ultrasonic mouse repeller is where to place it.  Any object in front of the repeller will prevent ultrasonic waves from reaching passing rodents.  Another problem is figuring out the rodents’ entrances and exits.

You may have the perfect spot to plug in the ultrasonic repeller, but if that isn’t where the rodents are traveling, the repeller will be completely ineffective.  You might not be able to tell how many of the ultrasonic repellers you need for your area.  And if your rodent problem is outdoors, you won’t be able to use an ultrasonic repeller to get rid of the rodents.

You will most likely need several units to place all over your home. The waves cannot go through walls or furniture. In order to keep the waves moving, placing several in the area is the recommendation; however this can get very expensive.

Do Ultrasonic Repellers Work?

The reviews of ultrasonic mouse repellers are mixed, but the majority of the reviews suggest that the repellers do not solve mouse and other rodent problems.  Many consumers actually find ultrasonic mouse repellers to be completely ineffective.

Is There a Better Way?

Fresh Cab® is a great alternative for ridding any area of mice or other rodents.  You can use Fresh Cab Mouse Pouches anywhere indoors. Simply place the pouches in  areas you have seen rodents and in areas they may be gaining entrance into your home, such as behind appliances and under sinks. Rodents like to follow pipes into structures and can squeeze through the tiny holes where pipes and wires are.

No matter where the mice are entering or exiting, Fresh Cab will get rid of them. Fresh Cab Mouse Pouches are especially convenient for getting rid of mice in hard to get to places.

How Does Fresh Cab Work?

Fresh Cab is a botanical product made from corn cob chips, herbal extracts, and plants.  The smell produced from the combination of ingredients is very pleasant to humans, but rodents find it offensive.  Rodents smell the balsam fir scent of Fresh Cab and leave the area.  Other rodents will not enter the area because of the smell.

Fresh Cab actually gets rid of mice and other rodents instead of leaving you with the dreaded task of removing dead rodents from your home, barn, farm equipment, or any other area you may have rodents which can be very tedious and dangerous. Before you remove a dead rodent or droppings from your home, you need to follow the safety guidelines set by the CDC. Fresh Cab is Federal EPA certified for use indoors and will not harm humans or animals that come in contact with it.

How to Use Fresh Cab Rodent Repellent

For mouse prone areas use 1 pouch per 125 sq. feet placed at area entrance for protection. Replace when the scent is no longer strong to the nose. For known infested areas, use one pouch per 8 sq. feet of floor space placed at area entrance for up to 30 days of maximum protection.
