As Seen On TV: Cordless Pest Repeller


LOOK AT TRAFFIC. NOW BACK TO YOU. DEER ARE PRETTY TO LOOK AT, BUT THEY CAN DESTROY YOUR FLOWER BEDS. YOU KNOW THE OLD SAYING, THE ONLY GOOD RAT IS A DEAD RAT. NO MATTER THE PEST, THERE’S A PRODUCT THAT PROMISES TO KEEP THEM AWAY FROM THE AREAS WHERE YOU DON’T WANT THEM, AND AMY DAVIS HAD THE PLEASURE OF TESTING IT OUT. THIS IS THE ULTRASOUND CORDLESS REPELER, VERY HIGH TECH HERE. RIGHT? SO IT EMITS A TONE, SENSES MOVEMENT UP TO 15 FEET AWAY AND EMITS A HIGH PITCHED TONE THAT SCARES OR ANNOYS THE ANIMAL SO MUCH THEY WANT TO STEER CLEAR OF IT. CHECK IT OUT. FROM FERAL HOGS TO ROOTING ARMADILLOS, THIS CORDLESS REPELER SAYS IT WILL WARD OFF ANY PEST. SET THE TONE FOR AREA PEST YOU WANT TO BUG OFF. FRANK’S FOUR-LEGGED FRIENDS AREN’T REALLY PEST, BUT REPELER SAYS IT WORKS WITH DOGS AND CATS, TOO, SO FRANK AGREED TO TRY IT OUT. FIRST HE SET IT UP IN HIS LIVING ROOM NEAR HIS, UMM, CHRISTMAS TREE? YEAH, IT IS FEBRUARY, FRANK. TAKE A LOOK. AT FIRST, THE SOUND SEEMS TO SCARE LITTLE MAXCY OFF, BUT SHE COMES BACK, AND AFTER A COUPLE OF MINUTES, SHE BRINGS HER FRIENDS. IT’S AS IF THE REPELER ISN’T EVEN THERE. THEY SNIFF AT IT. IT WORKS AT FIRST AS A SHOCK KIND OF THING, AND THEN THEY JUST GET USED TO IT AND THEY DON’T CARE. WE’RE ATTEMPT TO GO LET YOU HEAR THE CORDLESS ULTRASOUND. SO YOU CAN HEAR IT DOES MAKE A SOUND, BUT YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR EAR OR MIKE PHONE RIGHT UP TO THE DEVICE TO HEAR IT. NEXT TEST, FRANK MOVED THE PRODUCT OUTSIDE NEAR A FENCE AND WOOD FOR A PROJECT HE’S WORKING ON THAT HE’D LIKE TO KEEP HIS DOGS AWAY FROM, BUT TO SAY THE REPELER DIDN’T WORK WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT. IT SEEMS THERE MAY BE SOMETHING IN THE DEVICE THAT’S ACTUALLY ATTRACTING HIS POOCHES. SO WOULD FRANK BUY IT? I WOULDN’T SPEND MONEY ON IT. IT COSTS US $19.99 AT FRIES, BUT YOU ALSO HAVE TO BUY BATTERIES. WE MAY TRY THIS IN THE SUMMERTIME WITH WASPS. IT SAYS IF YOU GET A NEST NEAR YOUR FRONT DOOR, IT’S SCARY TO KNOCK IT DOWN. IT’S A VERY ANNOYING SOUND. WHAT WE DISCOVERED THIS MORNING IS THAT IT INTERFERES WITH ALL OF OUR MICROPHONES, SO EVERYONE AROUND HERE HAS QUESTIONS, ABOUT WHETHER IT INTERFERES WITH YOUR GARAGE DOOR OPENER. REPELS NEWS ANCHORS.
