Ratosonic Ultrasonic Rat Repeller is a high frequency, high decibel sound producing device that uses sound waves to drive away the rats. The high frequency ultrasonic sound waves emitted by the device build auditory stress in the rats and create an environment that is hostile to them.
Imagine yourself to be in a room filled with sound horns blaring continuously. You will naturally be forced to move out of the room to a quieter place. Ultrasonic Repeller works the same way on rats. It creates a high decibel environment that builds auditory stress in rats and drives them away.
University of Nebraska – Lincoln conducted an independent research on the efficiencies of ultrasonic rodent repellant devices in 1984. It was done in a lab where only ultrasonic repellant devices were used and no other rodent control was used. Results concluded that ‘Rodents under test either left the building or moved to other alternate non-ultrasonically treated areas’.

As the ultrasonic sound is too fragile, its waves may get dispersed with distance. So it will have less effect on rodents which are more than 20 feet away from the unit. If the room is large or has too many furniture or barriers in it, it is advisable to install more than one machine.
Ratosonic Rat Repeller is available in three variants: Home model, Shop/Factories/Industries model & Heavy Duty model. Home model is available to you for Rs.1999/- and gives an area coverage of 120 to 200 sq.ft. Shop/Factories/Industry model provides protection for an area of 500 to 750 sq.ft and costs Rs.3, 900/-. Ratosonic’s Heavy Duty model gives the most coverage of all three, with more than 5000 sq.ft, priced at Rs.15000 and onwards.
The repeller works best in closed premises with less external noises like godowns, offices, server rooms, garages etc. It may not work efficiently in outside premises such as gardens, patios etc. where the ultrasound noise gets dispersed.
No. Ultrasound travels more like light than sound. So it will not move to the other room and is not restricted by walls or furniture. However, a stocked up room can reduce the effect of the machine.
Ratosonic Rat Repeller device can be plugged into the car porch or garage. For this purpose, Ratosonic Industry Model is the best as it gives area coverage of 580-750 sq.ft.
Yes. The device comes with a warranty of one year from the date of purchase against any kind of manufacturing defects. This will apply only if all the usage instructions have been followed and the unit is neither tampered nor damaged in any way.
For a room with square feet coverage up to 750, one industrial model device will suffice. But if it is more than 750 sq.ft., the number of devices to be installed will increase. For area coverage up to 5000, four industrial model devices will be required. For 5000 sq.ft and above, Ratosonic’s heavy duty model is recommended.
Installing Ratosonic is extremely easy. The device works more like sound than light. It can be mounted on a table or wall corner, 3 to 4 feet above the ground. For heavy duty models, the installation is done after inspection of the site.
The service life of the repeller is approximately 5-6 years.
Definitely No. The device uses complex ‘swept’ sound frequency with multiple ‘peaks’. The intensity, complexity and changing frequency prevent the rodents from getting used to the sound emitted.
