Devices emitting high frequency noise are often advertised as being able to repel pests via ultrasonic sound. They are, according to their manufacturers, specifically designed to repel, injure or even eradicate pests — such as insects and rodents — completely. However, it should be noted that both testing labs and the US Federal Trade Commission (otherwise known as the FTC) dispute these claims.
Pest control is an umbrella term used to define any action taken to manage pests. For example, if your shoe is used as an approach that smashes cockroaches to smithereens then it will be considered as “pet-safe” pest control.
When taking into account the safety of pest control, the plan usually focuses on the chemicals used. Generally, pest control products for home based insects are applied in low concentrations. These concentrations are efficient at treating small insects, but even then are not good for pets.
