Why Skip This DIY Trend?

One of the most recent trends in DIY pest control is ultrasonic pest control. This type of pest control involves devices that emit high-frequency sounds in order to deter things like spiders, cockroaches, rodents and more. While some homeowners and business owners are making it part of their method, the professionals at Ledford’s are against it.


Ultrasonic pest control and termite control devices claim to emit a sound that only pests can hear. When they hear it, they supposedly run away from the area and leave your home or office alone. The problem with these devices is that they’re not always effective. While they may deter pests at first, pests often get used to the sound after a day or so and it no longer bothers them. This means they may go on making their home in your space. In addition, some pests simply don’t respond to the sound, rendering the device useless.

Product Uncertainty

There are several companies that sell ultrasonic pest control devices; when you choose one, you expect to get a quality product. However, there’s no real way to ensure that’s what you’ll get. Because the high-frequency sounds can’t be heard by humans, you could essentially end up with a product that claims to work, but does nothing. In addition, these types of pest control devices don’t work on all pests. If you’re dealing with a unique infestation or several types of pests, ultrasonic pest control likely won’t work for you.
