When you speak pest controllers, about these ultrasonic pest eradication devices, all will tell you they have found clusters of cockroaches actually inside these devices due to the warmth they emit.

In the studies that have been done, rodents merely avoid or adjust and adapt to the new noises and ultrasonic waves and they end up ignoring it, leaving you out of pocket and a pest infested house.

The Australian Newcastle University has studied and rejected ultrasonic sound as a means for rodent control. Ultrasound waves have not been shown to eradicate rodents from buildings and the waves have had no affect on rodent populations.

Tests in commercial properties with commercial style devices have shown that the rodents may leave the building for a few hours, but return to their normal activities will no concern to the devices installed.
