The Dual Speaker Super PestChaser® has a 6 foot cord, which makes it ideal for rooms where outlets are obstructed by furniture, draperies, or otherwise situated where the direct plug-in model would not be practical.
The PestChaser uses ultrasound to create an acoustically hostile environment that repels rodents. Rodents pose a serious safety problem for seniors who spend more time indoors than they did when they were younger. According to the Centers for Disease Control, rats bite more than 45,000 people each year.
Rodent-associated diseases in the U.S. include plague, murine typhus, salmonellosis, rat bite fever, leptospirosis, trichinosis, toxoplasmosis, and hantavirus.
The rat population in the U.S. is estimated to be at least one rat for every person.
Used indoors, the sound waves reverberate off the walls and hard surfaces of a room to maximize the effectiveness. The PestChaser produces sweeping pulses not heard by humans, dogs, cats, birds and other domestic animals; yet, it produces a tone that sounds like a jackhammer to rodents.
Traps and poisons are effective only temporarily, and they are dangerous to pets and children. They also require handling the bodies of these potentially dangerous rodents.
The PestChaser, by producing a constant, unpleasant sound audible to rats and mice, creates a stressful environment that they will avoid, usually within 6 to 10 days.
