Ultrasonic Ant Scarer

Ultrasonic repellers are different, but is there any use for them in the fight against ants?

The ultrasonic ant repeller is a relatively new and today at the peak of its popularity a remedy for these pests. The demand for such repellents is due to the fact that their counterparts do an excellent job of expelling mosquitoes and rodents from the premises. After reading reviews on this topic, most people who are poorly familiar with biology may have a deceptive opinion that against ants such funds should work.

Such popular opinions are actively supported by the sellers of funds and their manufacturers. And laziness, as an engine of progress, motivates many housewives to think about buying an ultrasonic ant repeller. After all, it's so simple: turn it on and forget about insecticides, crayons and other complex chemicals in protecting the apartment!

But whether such an ultrasonic device works from ants is a separate interesting question.Let's take a closer look at it.


The principle of ultrasonic repeller

Electronic cockroach repeller and ants is a device the size of a pack of cigarettes, carrying on its body or on a separate cord a plug for connecting to an outlet. When turned on, a special speaker device begins to generate ultrasonic signals, usually too high for people to hear.

The human ear does not hear the ultrasonic signals of the repeller

As planned by the manufacturers, this sound should have a destructive effect on the central nervous system of ants. As experiments have shown, the ants still do not know.

On a note

The term "infrasonic house ants repeller" is fundamentally incorrect. The prefix "infra-" means in this context "ultra-low." Such sounds can produce huge masts of windmills, but not home devices.

In fact, the ants really hear the sounds produced by ultrasonic devices, but a screech does not have a scaring effect at all. Why this happens will be described below.


Operation and safety rules when using devices

Despite the seeming ease of use, each electronic ant repeller requires adherence to certain safety rules:

  • the device can not be kept constantly on in the premises, most of the day used by people for recreation;
  • most repellers are not recommended for bedding;
  • it is necessary to use scarers in premises where pets live only with the permission of the veterinarian.

These measures are connected with the fact that some devices generate a signal strong enough for a negative impact on the human psyche. And when used in places of rest, there may be a risk of the appearance of unreasonable nervous disorders.

It is important!

It is instruments that can spoil human health, in some cases can effectively scare away ants: a powerful ultrasound in this case equally affects both bipeds and six-legs inhabitants of an apartment. Therefore, by the way, an ant ultrasound device, which, according to the seller, is “absolutely safe for humans”, will be completely useless in the fight against ants.

Those ultrasonic devices that could scare away ants will have a strong effect on humans.

Most ultrasonic ant repellers are of the same type and differ from each other only in appearance and cost. However, the most famous samples can be considered in detail.


Repeller Eco Sniper

The “Eco-” prefix alone is enough to attract an impressive number of customers who are concerned about the cleanliness of their apartment. In fact, the environmental friendliness of Ecosniper is the same as that of other devices.

Its cost is from 1000 rubles, and apparently it practically does not differ from the masterpieces of Chinese industry.


“I have long wanted instead of all these crayons to try ultrasound from ants. Chose a long time, consulted, bought this Ekosniper. He worked exactly as much as on the nightstands kept chalk. In fact, generally useless thing. Ants it to one place. Probably, our Russian ants are resistant to these lotions. ”

Pest Repeller Riddex Pro

The diligent Chinese manufacturer and the standard characteristics of the tool are hidden behind the beautiful and attractive foreign name of the device: it beeps exactly like most other tools and costs about 600 rubles, but it has a fairly modern acute-angled design.

“We bought Riddex Pro from ants, included it at home and in the country. The houses of the ants seem to have become smaller, but large blacks live in the country house, the device did not act on them at all. When they decided to destroy them completely, they called pest control. ”

Ants ant bell howell

Bell Howell is a rather expensive ultrasound ant repeller. You can buy it in online stores for about 1500 rubles.

Bell Howell repeller is expensive and still ineffective

According to the manufacturer, the device works effectively not only in apartments, but also in garages, in warehouses, in catering establishments.

Feedback on the use of the Bell Howell repeller:

“I would have your problems with one kitchen and two rooms. Here we have the chief attended to the breeding of ants, but regretted for the SES money. He said buy ultrasonic devices - and this is the university cafeteria! We bought the coolest, seemingly the most efficient, Bell Howell. It says on the packaging that they and cockroaches, and mice, and almost ghosts expelled. On all the premises hung 12 pieces. So what? Ants do not hear them at all. Under one straight along the baseboard walked. We, in order not to upset the boss, bought a few pencils Masha, smeared them all the corners on the sly, so now he walks and tells everyone how effective these ultrasonic devices are. ”

Repeller Typhoon

Typhoon - is the brainchild of domestic production. Its rectangular shape and long, stern black wire bring memories of Soviet receivers and radio points.

The design of the ultrasonic repeller Typhoon resembles Soviet receivers

However, it is Typhoon that, under certain conditions, shows a good result: reviews show that this ultrasonic repeller doesn’t really like ants. But at the same time, it has many contraindications: it can not be included near the bed and used in children's rooms.


“We bought a Typhoon for a private house. He really helped us. The ants did not disappear, but they practically did not penetrate the house. We meet them in the garage, summer kitchen - where the Typhoon was not included. Unfortunately, the device can not be kept on all the time and install it in the bedrooms. Therefore, it is hardly suitable for an apartment. ”

Maria, Elista

Price Typhoon is about 1000 rubles. He sells in many hardware stores.


Zenet XJ-90

Zenet, perhaps, is the most criticized ant repeller. It appeared after hundreds of customers discovered the absolute uselessness of its predecessor - Air Comfort,negative reviews which literally flooded the Internet.

Ultrasonic repeller AirComfort XJ-90

And its almost complete counterpart is the Zenet XJ-90 repeller.

In order to somehow keep the production line afloat, the creators decided to rename their offspring. And it would be okay, even though the shape of the case was changed. But no, buyers, who are still convinced that ants can be brought out by connecting a plastic box to an outlet, have already discovered striking similarities between the two models on the websites of online stores. That does not interfere, however, Zenet has something else to sell.


“Ultrasound from ants is a hoax. Do not waste money, people, for those 800 rubles that Zenet is worth, you can buy two Raptor cylinders and surely destroy all the infection in the house! I bought both Zenet and his predecessor, Air Comfort (what did I think about then?) Of my daughter in a hostel. And cockroaches and ants on these devices run without fear. I am writing a review to somehow shame the manufacturer: preying on other people's problems, not solving them - this is a great shame! ”

Are ant scarers effective?

In fact, ant ultrasound is ineffective. Like any living creature, an ant can experience discomfort while in the field of action of a sound of very high power.But in the same place the person will feel the same discomfort. It is impossible to scare away an ant with a sound that a person does not hear.

But against mosquitoes ultrasound is really effective. The fact is that mosquitoes use ultrasound themselves, transmitting danger signals in this way. It is necessary to imitate them, and insects will consider that the device is their perishing comrade. And from a dangerous place, they will stay away.

Ultrasonic repeller will work on mosquitoes, but hardly on ants

Unlike mosquitoes, ants do not exchange ultrasonic signals - they have chemical signals that form the basis of communication. Therefore, he himself is not afraid of ultrasound.

But this is theoretical reasoning. There are experimental evidence, and numerous reviews, which are sufficient to confirm the uselessness of ultrasonic repellers from ants.


“Our company sells pest control products. We tested in the institute laboratory all the devices with which we had to work. None of the ultrasound devices proved effective against ants, cockroaches, bedbugs and fleas. Their main target - mosquitoes, and only indoors.On the street, even the most powerful of them practically do not work. Of course get rid of antswhich sometimes even the last generation insecticides cannot cope with, cannot be done with ultrasonic devices. ”
