Are you looking for an alternative to all those chemicals that exterminators use to get rid of pests? How about using electronic pest control methods? There are several types of electronic methods that you can choose from, each one with their own techniques. However, each of them are quite effective despite the differences. Below are a few examples and what makes them effective.
Ultrasonic Pest Control
Ultrasonic pest control makes use of high-frequency sound waves that are undetectable to the human ear. The point here is to repel pests with annoying sound waves to discourage them from coming near your home. Animals, both small and large, are also capable of picking up these sounds. Insects, for example, can sense the pitch with their antennae. There are even others, such as butterflies, grasshoppers, and moths, that use specialized organs to observe this sound. The best thing about this method is that it is not lethal and it doesn’t even do anything to hurt them. The downside is that it needs periodic adjustment. Every now and again, this method should be modified so that the targets won’t adapt to the annoying sounds it creates.
Ionic Pest Control
The Ionic pest control technique creates negative ions that can clear the air of any harmful pollutants. Some of these include dust mites, bacteria, and even odors in the atmosphere near your home. Such odors have the tendency to attract pests. Negative ions are naturally created after rainstorms, explaining the fresh feeling in the atmosphere after these storms cease. Because most pests sense negative ions, they are often alerted when storms are approaching. This makes them eager to leave certain areas before the storms hit.
Electromagnetic Pest Control
The electromagnetic pest control is a type of pest control that sends signals through the wiring that surrounds most homes. It changes the frequency, annoying pests so much that they tend to avoid your home. It may be different from the ultrasonic method, but it’s plain to see that the results are quite similar. The pests are driven away, unable to breed, eat or build nests in a peaceful area. Like the ultrasonic method, pests like rodents and insects have the tendency to adapt to this method, so the frequency needs to be modified from time to time. One last note for pet owners: rodents kept as pets may be annoyed by this method as well. So, if you have a pet mouse, hamster, gerbil or the like, you may want to avoid it.
