Review of the Rodar ii ultrasonic pest repeller
In this post, we are going to review the rodar ii ultrasonic electronic pest repeller.
This device, which has been manufactured by Macron Corporation, is used in the house to get rid of pests like squirrels, rat, mice and other household pests.
It works the same way as other electronic pest control products that are available in the market. But how is it different from the other devices available.
One unit of the rodar ii ultrasonic repeller covers an area of about 3000 square feet. This area is sufficient considering most homes have an area of approximately 2000 to 3000 square feet.
How it works
Just like the other repellers, it emits ultrasonic waves that are unbearable to the pests and therefore will have to run away to some other places to hide. It has a special transducer that emits ultrasound waves of up to 55 kHz which only affect the pests but are inaudible to humans and pets.
These waves are up to 60 times more than the other similar gadgets on the market, making the rodar ii pest control product have an edge. It actually works very well.
Where to buy rodar ii and price
You can buy this device in several stores online like Amazon where it is sold at $89.95 exclusive of shipping and they will ship this product directly to you. Though quite expensive it well works the high price.
The other things to note are that the waves emitted by this device do not pass through walls and ceilings.
So after you purchase it don’t expect it to get rid of pests on all the levels of your house, but instead, you should purchase a unit for each level.
Another thing to note about the rodar 2 pest repeller is that it is completely safe for your pests that might be around your home. An exception is, of course, gerbils and hamsters which tend to be deterred by the same ultrasonic sound that gets rid of the pests.
It also works well to repel indoor pests and therefore it may not work effectively outside the house.
Here is How to control paper wasps effectively
Paper wasp can be defined as social vespid wasps, particularly those in the genus Polistes that erect wispy nests from the chewed wood pulp. When threatened, in their defense they can sting.
How to Control Paper Wasps
The primary step in wasp control is to precisely spot the insect and locate its nesting site. A skilled pest control service may offer wasp control services, or you can use the subsequent information and make an effort to attempt to manage them yourself.
June is the most favorable time of the year to take control measures against the wasps. It’s also at this time that the queen has established her small colony. It’s recommended that during the night hours when the wasps are less active it’s when to pounce and eradicate them.
Perfunctory control that includes using small amounts or nonpesticides is recommended. During the wee hours of the night cover the nesting places with a heavy large plastic bag and shut the nest. Then cut and freeze the nest, the unfavorable cold temperatures will kill the wasps inside in less than two days.
Use of soaps and detergents.
Many types of soap will work, those are readily available in the house will help in easing the menace. These soaps including dish and laundry soap will work effectively. By pouring a soap and water solution into the entrance of the nests, will deter the wasps from coming back into their nests.
Bendiocarb and chlorpyrifos dust.
These insecticide dust are used when treating wasp nests concealed in building voids.
Residual Liquid Insecticides.
Spraying concentrated D-Fense SC and Cyper WP mixed with water in an area infested with paper wasps will help in killing the wasps. The areas surrounding the nests should be more often than not be sprayed with these insecticides to prevent future nesting.
Calling an exterminator.
In extreme situations, it’s best to leave nest removal to the skilled professionals. Calling the exterminator only happens when the wasps’ nests are in hard to reach areas. It also advisable to engage professional help from the exterminators if once is allergic to the stings.
Usage of a shop-vac.
This is a more-natural technique of targeting a wasps’ nest. Get a large shop-vac with a wand that is long enough to reach the nest. Ensure the exit of the vacuum has a grill small enough to stop wasps from escaping.
Using a smoke. Building a small fire directly onto the nest and leaving it to smoke for hours, and when you are certain that the nest is clear of the wasps you can extinguish the fire and knock the nest down with a stick. Nonetheless, you may desire to have a spray bottle overflowing with soap and water in case there are any live wasps left behind in the nest
