Non-Toxic PestChaser® Electronic Rodent Repellers are specifically designed to repel mice and rats. Mice and rats are the common indoor rodent pest problem encountered by consumers worldwide.
Why PestChasers® Work Best?
Rats and mice pose serious health risks, but traps and poisons come with a heavy price. Poisons can endanger children and pets while inhumane traps require the handling of potentially disease-bearing rodents. Neither poisons nor traps provide long-term protection since more rodents will likely replace the ones you've killed. It can be an unending cycle.
The PestChaser® Electronic Rodent Repeller puts the emphasis on non-toxic prevention, instead of after-the-fact toxic intervention. The PestChaser® emits high frequency ultrasound waves between 32 and 62 kHz to create an acoustically hostile environment that repels rodents from sound-protected areas, over the long term. It's kinder than traps, safer than poisons, and inaudible to people and non-rodent pets.
Please keep in mind that the physical properties of ultrasonic sound prevent ultrasonic sound waves from penetrating solid objects like walls and floors. Therefore, we strongly recommend the placement of a PestChaser® in each room where problems are evident.
The extremely high output of the Commercial PestChaser® PC600 provides extra sound power muscle for particularly stubborn rodent infestations in warehouses, hotels, restaurants, schools, hospitals, office buildings -- virtually all commercial facilities. The direct plug-in design comes equipped with one-way security screws to reduce theft when installed in public places. Although the Commercial PestChaser® PC600 is more powerful than our standard consumer PestChasers®.
Installation: Plug the unit into the lower outlet of a 110VAC duplex receptacle which will leave the upper outlet available for use. When a secure installation is desired use the one way security screws provided to fasten the unit to the wall. The holes at the side of the case are placed so that the screws go beside the cover plate.
Do not expect instant results; filed test studies show that it typically takes from 6 to 9 days to force rodents out of an infested area. It seems to take that amount of time for them to learn that the adverse change to their environment is not going to go away. When used as a preservative in a non-rodent infested area, the effect is immediate in that, in most cases, new rodents will not enter an environment where intense ultrasound is present.
Ultrasonic sound is highly directional and will bounce off of hard surfaces to fill an enclosed area with high intensity echoes, Hard surfaces are cement, brick, glass, tile, etc. On the other hand, ultrasound is absorbed and dampened by soft surfaces, such as hay bales, feed sacks, stacked linens, etc.
Under ideal conditions, each PestChaser PC600 unit can deliver sound up to 1,000 square feet of space. However, in individual applications, the amount of sound absorbing materials present, the humidity of the air and building construction will dramatically affect the amount of area that can be covered.
Ultrasonic sound travels in a straight line much like FM waves or light. It will not penetrate solid objects but will throw a "shadow" behind them. These are the areas of silence where pests can find shelter from the ultrasound. These shadow areas can either be eliminated through the placement of additional units or can be used as a place to put traps.
