The devices are said to be safe for pets and children.

Ultrasonic pest control utilizes high frequency noise to rid your home of a variety of pests including rodents, termites, cockroaches and spiders. There are many devices on the market that suggest that the high pitches sounds will drive unwanted pests from your home. There is a large body of anecdotal evidence to support these theories, but studies have been inconclusive, and the success or failure of the device will depend on a myriad of factors including your location and the kinds of pest you are attempting drive out.

Inspect your home for signs of a termite infestation. These will include mud tunnels on exterior walls, wings from swarmers or small winged insects in your home or garden. Cracked or bubbled paint and droppings also indicate the presence of termites. Wood that sounds hollow when tapped indicates that the termites have already done extensive damage.

Obtain the ultrasonic device that best suits your needs. There is a plethora of these devices on the market and you can order one on the Internet or from your hardware and home store. Do you research to find one that works for your location.

Plug the ultrasonic device in. A red LED will indicate that the device is working. Leave the device plugged in. Even though you cannot hear the sound, the device is still operational.
