Impact Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller
The Pestrol Impact Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller uses ultrasonic frequencies that range from 25-65 kHz to startle and repell rodents. The Ultrasonic noise emitted from this unit effects the auditory and nervous systems of rats and mice making it near impossible for them to go about their daily habits, therefore preventing them from entering or living in the protected area. The unit has a power cord attached which gives you the ability to place the unit exactly where you need it. The Pestrol Impact Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller has 180 degrees front facing range will cover/protect up to 200m2.
We recommend placing this unit at one end of the space you want to keep rats and mice away from. Place the Pestrol Impact Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller clear from any obstruction as the sound waves do not pass through walls or other solid objects. Please do not place unit on carpeted surfaces, behind furniture, curtains or other soft objects as they will absorb the sound waves. Do not use unit outdoors or let water come into contact with the unit.
Can humans hear the noises from the Pestrol Impact Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller?
Generally people under the age of 25 can hear the Ultrasonic frequencies emitted by this unit. Although the ultra sonic noise emitted from this device still may be slightly audible to people over the age of 25.
Will the Pestrol Impact Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller affect my pets?
The Ultrasonic frequencies on this unit are set to target rodents. However birds, cats and dogs all 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.
What areas would the Pestrol Impact Ultrasonic Rodent Repeller benefit from?
This unit is ideal for any open space where you want to keep rats and mice out of. This includes, but is not limited to, attics, roof spaces, garages, sheds, barns. This unit can go anywhere where a power supply is available.
The Pestrol Rodent Free uses a combination of ultrasonic, electromagnetic and ionic technologies to get rid of rodents from your home. In addition to rodent control, this device also helps control cockroaches as well. The device is easy to use and requires no maintenance from the user – just plug it in to your power point and let it do its job.
The Electromagnetic technology used in the Pestrol Rodent Free utilises the existing wiring within the walls of your home or building by simply sending random computer generated pulses through the wires. This pulsing is tuned to directly affect the rodents and cockroaches nervous system. The electromagnetic technology is the main/most powerful defense of this unit to protect your home against rats, mice and cockroaches.
Electromagnetic pulses converted to random computer generated intervals ensuring the rats, mice and cockroaches will not build up a tolerance. Vibrations caused by the unit are felt by the pests, making it almost impossible for them to gather food, breed, communicate and build their nests. The pulsing ensures the rodents and cockroaches vacate the area covered to regain comfort and quality of life.
The Ultrasonic technology is a high frequency sound emitted from the unit. This is designed to be outside of the typical human hearing range. The Pestrol Rodent Free Ultrasonic frequency emits a pulse or wave that disturbs and disorients rodents and cockroaches, driving them away from your home or business. Similar to the effect of the Electromagnetic pulses this high frequency sound creates a very uncomfortable environment for the rats, mice and roaches making it almost impossible for them to communicate, breed, gather food, nest and live their daily lives.
The ultrasonic sound waves cannot pass through solid objects and walls. The ultrasonic sound emitted from this unit will be effective in the room that you have placed the unit in, although the electromagnetic pulses will go on to cover the remaining of the 150m2 of your home through the wiring circuit.
Using a variable pulse generator, the Pestrol Rodent Free emits fluctuating sound waves ensuring pests do not become accustomed or immune to the Ultrasonic waves.
Ionic technology works to emit electrically charged negative atoms that are very common in our atmosphere. Negative ions are produced naturally by lightning before a storm. Animals are naturally sensitive to negative ions and you may notice that long before a large weather change or lightning storm, cockroaches, rodents and other animals sense a change in the environment. You may notice just before a storm many animals will become unsettled, change their behaviour and begin looking for protection and coverage away from the incoming storm.
The Pestrol Rodent Frees’ Ionic function mimic’s the electrical charge of an incoming storm throughout your home or business, transforming your area into a hostile environment. Pests become confused and frightened, causing them to seek shelter far from the range of any Pestrol Rodent Free product.
Besides making your area a deterrent against pests, the Ionic technology constantly works to purify the air you breathe, helping create a pest free and healthy environment within your home or business.

How long until the unit works?
It will take between 3-10 days on average for the unit to take full effect and drive the rats and mice away. Sometimes it may take up to 21 days for the unit to take full effect. Please be aware that it can take a little longer with cockroaches as their eggs can lay dormant for many months before hatching.
You may see an increase of rodent and cockroach activity within this time. Be assured this is a very good sign and shows that the Pestrol Rodent Free unit is working and causing discomfort for the pests, driving them away from their hiding places, looking for an escape route. You may wish to set some bait or traps during this time to catch the pests. You can ensure that they have an escape route, such as an open door or window.
Where should I put my Pestrol Rodent Free?
You can plug the Pestrol Rodent Free anywhere around your home or business. Using the above guide or calling us to determine how many units you may need for your home. We advise to have one on each level of your home, or alternatively at each end of your single story property. If you have the luxury of electric plugs in your roof or wall cavities it is recommended to place a unit there as well as within the living areas of your home.
The Pestrol Rodent Free is recommended to be plugged directly into a power point rather than an extension cord or multi adapter, approximately 0.5 metres from floor level in an unobstructed area. This allows the Electromagnetic pulses to achieve maximum coverage throughout your home or business. The unit will still be effective if it is placed above this height or has small barricades in its path. There is no need to install an electric outlet in the ceiling area.
Please be aware that the Ultrasonic waves cannot pass through solid objects and or bend around corners or barricading objects.
Will it affect my children or pets?
No. This unit will not affect adults, children or pets. Some small children or animals with highly sensitive hearing may pick up on the Ultrasonic waves. This however is very rare and the high frequency sound will not affect them. If you are worried or do find this an issue you are able to change the setting to only use Electromagnetic pulsing.
What is the life span of my Pestrol Rodent Free?
The unit comes with a 60 Day money back guarantee* and a 2 year warranty on the unit*. We have found that the unit should work for 5-10 years normally. If you do find any problems or the lights on the unit stop working just call us on 0800 88 88 44 and we are more than happy to help you.
Are the lights supposed to be flashing on the unit?
Yes, the yellow (ultrasonic) and red (electromagnetic) lights will constantly flash on the unit. This is normal and does not mean your unit is not working properly. This is because these two technologies will turn on and off so the rodents and cockroaches will not build up a tolerance to the unit. The green (ionic) light is more subtle than the red and yellow lights, and this light will stay on constantly, not flash on and off. The night light (blue light on top of the unit) will not flash either.
Should I have the unit on all the time?
We recommend having the unit running constantly as this will provide the best protection for your home.
Can I have traps and baits set up with this unit in place?
We recommend not to have any traps or bait set in your home when using the Rodent Free. As this unit works to repel rats, mice and cockroaches, baits will attract the rats and mice into your home which will counteract the Rodent Free Unit.
How much Power does the Pestrol Rodent Free use?
The unit uses the same power as a 3 Watt light bulb. This means it will only cost a few cents a week to run.
