The Pestrol Yard Repeller uses three of the latest technologies available to startle and scare away pests. This is achieved by using Ultrasonic frequencies that range from 15-25 kHz, and is then combined with loud audible predatory noises (EG. Sirens). Finally, a flashing strobe light designed for its intensity and optimal effectiveness is used from dusk until dawn. Pest animals are deterred by these 3 functions, and will stay well away from the noises emitted.
The Pestrol Yard Repeller has a motion detection setting; the unit will only go off when the PIR sensor is activated. It also has constant settings; you can have the unit emitting noises at all times, if you choose. The Pestrol Yard Repeller can be powered by 4x C size batteries, or by a mains power cord + a 10 metre extension cord (both supplied).
The full range of the motion detection is approx. 15m directly out from the unit, in a horizontal fan shape of approx. 60-70° across, and a vertical fan shape of approx. 60-70° up and down.
note: for easy re-attachment of backing panel, soak in hot water for a few seconds
Where is the best place to position the Pestrol Yard Repeller?
We recommend placing this unit at one end of the space you want to keep pests away from. Position the unit facing the main problem area, or entry point where the pests are getting in. This is particularly important so that the motion detection can pick up the movements of pests. The Pestrol Yard Repeller can be mounted on a wall, fence or many other surfaces.
Can humans hear the noises from the Pestrol Yard Repeller?
Generally most people can’t hear the Ultrasonic frequencies emitted by this unit. Audible/Sonic noises can be heard by people (the audible/sonic noise can be turned down with an adjustable volume setting).
Will the Pestrol Yard Repeller affect my pets?
The Ultrasonic frequencies can be adjusted on this unit to target particular animals. However cats and dogs have similar hearing, so it can be hard to keep one away without affecting them all. It is best to give us a call on 0800 88 88 44 to have a chat about specific animals.
Will the Pestrol Yard Repeller only work within the specified range?
The range mentioned is for the motion detection. The full range of the motion detection is approx. 15m directly out from the unit, a horizontal fan shape of approx. 60-70° across and a vertical fan shape of approx. 60-70° up and down. However the noise emitted from this unit will travel a lot further than the range of motion detection.
What areas would the Pestrol Yard Repeller benefit from?
This unit is ideal for any area where you want to keep pest animals out of.
