All of our deterrents have been proudly designed and manufactured in Great Britain
All our products use Ultrasonic technology to deter pests humanely… But, what exactly is it, and how does it work?
All of our units at Concept Research have a PIR (Passive Infra Red) sensor installed. These are activated by the movement of body heat, which in turn triggers a 5 second ultrasonic burst – a noise that the pest will find unpleasant, which will repeat until the animal leaves the protected area. This noise is inaudible to humans and harmless to all species.
Each type of unit is set at a different ultrasonic sound level, and as certain animals have different levels of hearing, this ultrasonic sound can be tailored to the species of pest the unit aims to deter. For example, this is why our product: FOXWatch deters foxes, but has no effect on dogs, and why none of our products effect birds. In fact, CATWatch is the only Ultrasonic deterrent tested and approved by the RSPB, testifying to this fact.
As Ultrasonic deterrents are humane, they do not work instantly, It should take between 2 to 4 weeks before the full deterrent effect is achieved, however, in extreme cases it can take up to 3 months. For this reason, we offer a 90 day money back guarantee on our deterrents.
This varying degree of effect time is caused by the animals attitudes! Although they all find the sound irritating, some may be more inquisitive and investigate where the sound is coming from. Meanwhile, some cats are stubborn. For example, territorial males will try and stand there ground for as long as possible before finally moving along.
However, despite having to wait a little while for the deterrent to take affect, they are ultimately very effective when they do!
Ultrasonic pest deterrents are also superior because they work in all weather conditions, and can be used over long periods to prevent new pests entering your property. Alternatives such as sprays and pellets can be washed away by the rain, reducing their effectiveness.
More than this, ultrasonic deterrents can cover large patches of your property. For example, our CATWatch and FOXWatch deterrents cover/detect up to 12m (40ft) away. Just another reason why they are superior over other types of products and deterrents.
These five points should have covered all your questions on ‘what is ultrasonic pest technology’. But the key message is that it is humane and effective (so a win win). Thus buy your unit here today or get in touch and contact us.
