    This thing doesn’t work. Save yourself $5.69 and get a bottle of DEET from the pharmacy.

    I don’t know,we put in 3 of those ultrasonic rodent repellent plugs last fall, we had *something* skittering around in the ducts late at night. Haven’t heard a peep ever since. I’d give this a try, if only for the occasional pest that sneaks in while couch surfing at night.

    Won’t work – keep the money. After 30 yrs in pest control I still wait to see one of these devices that even remotely does what it promises.
