As someone who was once to the topic of mouse control, I can relate to how many people feel. There are so many different products out there that it can all get really confusing. There are natural deterrents, electric mouse traps, conventional mouse traps, scents, glue pads, live mouse traps, ultrasonic mouse deterrents, electromagnetic deterrents â well, I guess you get the picture. So the question stands, where is one to start with all of this mess?
There are many different posts already out there floating around on the web, so I don't really feel the need to get into all of them. Actually, the majority of them are pretty easy to figure out. However, there are two that do bring up a little bit of confusion. One of them is the ultrasonic mouse deterrent or repellers. They are not really traps, but they do help to repel mice and pests. So, these things are great for a variety of reasons. One of them is that they are very clean as opposed to all of those other deterrents out there where the operator has to deal with dead rodents. That brings up another benefit â they are also humane. So, they work by releasing, emitting, or sending out really high frequencies that really get on rodents nerves. The best description of how the mice perceive the sound is like a jack hammer. So, as you can tell, this will help to keep the mice away. Another aspect of this mouse control topic is that many people as whether mice actually get used to the noise thus deeming the device as ineffective. I do not know this for certain, but many of the products descriptions say that it is possible. Now whether or not this is just a sales pitch is uncertain. This is why many prefer a sonic mouse control repeller that oscillates. This means that the ultrasonic frequencies vary. This is supposed to keep the mice from getting "used" to the same frequency. Now whether or not you believe this principle is up to your own judgment. It makes sense to me, but that's just me. Another thing that many people don't know about them is that they are usually supposed to be used along with other traps and deterrents. Now, many don't understand this aspect because well, when they buy a device like this, they think that it should fix the problem by itself. In other words, if it has to be used with other traps and deterrents, then why not just use the other ones instead. Well, here is why it all makes sense. The ultrasonic frequencies tend to through the mice off of their game. It makes them lose concentration I guess. This usually makes them more vulnerable or likely to step on a glue pad or get caught in a trap.
