Will a high pitch sound deterrent machine repel wild animals?
Man has always tried to come up with different methods for dealing with wild animals. This is because they are always a nuisance when they invade homes. There is a need to get rid of these wild animals in the most humane way. There is also the need for those who come up with these various methods to make money.
High pitch sound deterrent
These are electronic machines designed to produce a high pitched noise or sound that will greatly disturb a wild animal until it leaves the area. Those who manufacture these devices claim that the wild animals will leave and never come back. This is not usually the case. Well, some of these high pitched sound deterrent machines will work on specific animals but not others. When buying them it is important to know that it is not a guarantee they will work. You might end up wasting your money and precious time.
Reasons why sound deterrents do not work
The reason why the high pitch sound deterrent doesn’t really work is because in most cases:
• The animals in your home are already comfortable
• They have food
• They have required warmth and shelter
Therefore, a high pitch sound can appear to be a very small price to pay as they have all they need. In some cases, your home may be the only place that the wild animal knows how to survive unless it’s relocated to a new area.
Look for a permanent solution
Sometimes it will be better to look for a permanent solution to a wild animal problem. As they say, prevention is better than the cure. Start by making sure that the wild animals will not get into your home in the first place. This is because once they establish a home, it will be difficult to get rid of them.
Get professional help
It is important to get professional help from animal handlers, especially when you do not know what to do. The only true way of dealing with the wild animals is to trap them and then remove the animal physically. Once the animals are relocated, you will need to clean up your home and disinfect it.
