If you didn’t win our last rodent trap giveaway, don’t worry: This giveaway will be of interest to you! One lucky reader will win an Ultra PestChaser Ultrasonic Rodent Repellent Device, so read on!
Last November, I woke up one morning to find rat droppings in the doorway of my office. As it turned out, a rodent had made its way into the house and crept around that night. Although we quickly took steps to identify the spot they were getting in, repair the damage caused and set out even MORE traps, I was reasonably unnerved for some time afterwards, feeling paranoid that another rat might invade my space. That’s why I’m extra happy to have the new Ultra PestChaser, a unique device from our friends at Victor Rodent. This device looks a little like a boombox, but make no mistake – the rats in your home won’t be dancing for joy when these speakers pump out their song! This device emits a high-frequency sound that is only audible to rodents, and designed to be intolerable to them, encouraging them to get the heck out of Dodge.
The unit is fairly small, and plugs into any standard electrical outlet. It’s meant for indoor usage only, and the sound will not travel through walls or furniture, so it’s more of a one-room solution than a catch-all device. There is an optional LED light on the unit, but if you turn that off, you won’t even know that it’s on except for the slight electronic hum of the device running – you know, the same type of low buzz you hear anytime you plug an electronic device in. The sound which rats hear cannot be detected by humans, however you must never use it around rodent pets, ferrets, or rabbits; it’s meant to be safe around pets like dogs and cats.
Ultra PestChaser is meant to be a supplement to other rodent control strategies, such as traps. This would have been PERFECT for us back in November, because it would have given me extra peace of mind that rats weren’t going to be climbing all over my desk at night. It would have also been great for an instance we had where a rat was chewing the buttons off Jai’s computer mouse at night – it took several days to catch that rodent, because it kept escaping from our myriad traps! I’m going to keep it in storage and pull it out anytime we have rodent issues – I’ll plug it in whichever room I detect the activity and leave it there until the pests diminish.
