Zion wildlife control tip of the month: Will A High Pitch Sound Deterrent Machine Repel Wild Animals?
The concept behind a Zion exterminator high pitch sound deterrent machine is quite genius. The idea is for these machines to utilize powerful sound waves which act as the source of pain and discomfort for the animal, which would then drive them away. The problem is, they are not effective.
A simple way to describe the purpose of these Zion animal trapping machines is to annoy the animal by sounds at a high pitch frequency. The problem is, wildlife animals are losing their territories due to human expansion so when the animal finds its shelter and has its liter, the home they are living in becomes the only option they have, in order, to survive. If the animal chose to flee their home where they have their young ones, they would be put at risk for death due to no shelter. The animal, instead, will choose to, simply, ignore the sound. There is no device, or repellent that will make them leave.
When homeowners have a Zion wildlife removal wild animal problem, they will try anything and everything to resolve it even when these methods do not work. Many repellent and deterrent companies are making their profit off ineffectiveness. When you are that homeowner that wants the wild animal out of your home as soon as possible but do not know what to do, you will probably get on the internet and choose any option without much knowledge on the matter. What you will find is numerous claims that ultrasonic machines are effective in keeping wild animals away and even claims stating the machines will make the animals flee even after they have made their home and had their liter.
The theory behind these machines is they emit sounds at a frequency only animals can hear, we as humans cannot. Which, theoretically, the animal will be annoyed to the point of their departure from your home. In reality, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued a warning labeling these machines and fraudulent due to their ineffectiveness. Even if these machines did work, they would need to be running 24/7, otherwise the animals would return. That would leave a homeowner with quite the expensive electric bill.
There are two other Zion pest control methods that do not work that have a similar concept to the high pitch sound deterrent machine: strobe lights and repellents. Strobe lights are meant to drive the animals away with light sensitivity and repellents are meant to drive the animals away with their odor. All three intend to annoy the animal into fleeing your home. None of them work.
The two Zion animal control methods that do work are trapping and exclusion. High pitch sound deterrent machines may not be effective, but there are ways to solve your animal problem. You can also take preventative steps, such as maintaining home repairs. Also, consider seeking professional assistance.
