I think I have bats in attic which is closed off except for a trap door I use to access. However, I also have 3 cats downstairs. Is there an electronic product that is safe and won’t affect my 3 cats?
Absolutely. First, understand that Ultra Sound Repellers don’t “hurt” any animal including the ones they target. Basically what they do is emit sounds in a frequency range that will either disturb, irritate or alert target nuisance animals. And once the target animal receives the sound, they will typically move away from the area where the sound is present.
Secondly, ultra sound has no penetrating power and will pretty much stay within the rooms boundary where applied. So if you set a unit out in the attic, the sound won’t be able to escape this space. That means its not likely you or your pets will even hear it. But even if they did, it won’t harm or bother them since they will be far off and removed from the direct sound and by the time the sound wave reaches them, it will barely detectable.
Now given the limits of ultra sound, its important that you deploy them in such a way so that all of the attic space will be covered (blanketed) by the sound to insure it will work. In other words, if you leave even a small area vulnerable, there is a good chance the bats will relocate to that area. And since ultra sound doesn’t penetrate or move around objects, if your attic has a lot of twists and turns, you will need 2-3 units to insure complete coverage.
