Does the use of ultrasonic pest control devices have any side effects?
When you are planning to purchase a unit of an electronic pest control device you must consider a lot of things and one of these is whether it is going to affect you in one way or another.
You will then have to decide if this is the reason you will rather not have it in your home. In this post I will highlight some of the benefits and also the negative effects of having one in your home and using to get rid of insects and rodents that have become a nuisance to you.
The use of ultrasonic pest repellers has become the better option for many home owners and the main reason for this is because its very cheap as compared to other methods like the hiring or exterminator companies to get rid of pests in your house.
Unlike many other do it yourself methods, ultrasonic repellers only involve plugging in the device to the socket if it is one that uses electricity and turning it on for those that are powered by batteries or solar. There are usually no major complications for using this method and this is the reason why they are gaining popularity. They also come with clear instructions

Pros of Ultrasonic Pest Repellents
The uniqueness of how a unit of this gadget works is also one of its advantages. Different models work in different ways to get rid of various insects and rodents. Take the Ultrasonic Mosquito Repellent for example what this does is that when it has been turned on it produces the sound resembling the one of the male mosquito and since
Take the Ultrasonic Mosquito Repellent for example what this does is that when it has been turned on it produces the sound resembling the one of the male mosquito and since its only the “fertilized” female mosquitoes that bite then they will not feel comfortable around this sound and therefore are deterred and move away from the area.
When they are fertilized they do not usually want to have intercourse and when they sense that the male counterpart is around they run away and this is good riddance.
The other example I want to put across here is the Ultrasonic Bird Repeller and what this one does is to play around with the psychology of the birds in such a way that if they are gathered somewhere either scavenging or something, they are always on the lookout to see if there are any predators that might attack them and when one of them notices a predator then it makes a sort of distress sound alarming the others to vacate the are immediately.
Ultrasonic bird repellers usually work in the same way and they create this kind of distress call sound warning the birds to vacate the area immediately (in this case your garden) since it may not be safe for them.
Some of the advantages of these ultrasonic devices are like:
- They are very cheap and you can purchase them anywhere either in retail store or online. Averagely they cost around $20.
- They are safe to the environment since they do not emit any harmful chemicals. Some like the pest repeller ultimate usually emit beneficial negative ions that help to purify the air that we breathe.
- They are safe around the kids and even some of our pets.
- Easy to use and come with clear instructions.
- Consume very little electricity.
Cons of ultrasonic pest deterrents
Since there are very few disadvantages I will only list two of them that I know of and these are:
- Some usually do not work like the Riddex Pest Repellers
- The ultrasonic ultrasound affects people with pacemakers around.
As you can see the benefits of using these devices exceeds the disadvantages and that is why I really recommend purchasing at least one ultrasonic pest control device and compare it with the other methods then see make your long term choice.
