This is the first time I have really had mixed feelings about a product. I cannot really say whether it truly works or not. We have not had any pest problems (thank goodness!) because we live on a second floor.
However, we have been having buggy problems so, I thought this might help. Well, it seemed to for about a week as we had no issues but then pest control had been in not long ago so...
The truth is, we still have bug problems but not as severe. Is this due to the repeller. Honestly, I don't know.
I can say this though, the product has not bothered my cat. She was curious of the flashing lights at first but now just ignores it. I am not even sure if the flashing lights mean it is working or what. I seriously don't get it.
As you can see the device takes up an entire outlet which is a drawback. So, if you get this product know this right away.
This is what the company has to say about the product.
You can target mice, squirrels, bats, ants, roaches, mosquitoes and other pests with a BrillanteTM electronic pest repeller using any one or more of the four built-in functions:
-Ultrasonic sound wave creation (intended to disturb and drive away pests with sounds outside the spectrum audible to humans)
-Electromagnetic field alteration (to repel in-wall insects sensitive to electromagnetic variations)
-Negative ion generator (to reduce airborne particles, microbes and odors that help attract pests)
-O3 / ozone unit (for reducing indoor bacteria and virus levels)
Convenient switches on each side of the pest repeller allow you to switch on or off each of the 4 functions at will and subtle LED lights let you know which functions are active (the ultrasonic function should be switched off if near pet rodents, results vary for dogs by age/breed).
COVERAGE: Ultrasonic function intended for use in a single room up to 6996 square feet. Additional units may be needed to target rodents in more than one room with ultrasonic sound waves. Negative ion and O3 functions intended for areas up to 861 sq. ft.
One unit is enough to provide electromagnetic coverage throughout the house (based on in-wall wiring).
INSTALLATION IS SIMPLE & EASY: Just plug into a wall outlet and switch on the functions you want to use. Can be combined with additional non-toxic repellents such as peppermint oil and even traps to catch pests driven out of hiding.
RISK-FREE PURCHASE: We want you to know we back our products with great customer service and our 60 day guarantee (days from delivery) that if you're not happy with your BrillanteTM pest control product we'll make it up to you with a no-hassle full refund.
Overall, the jury is still out for me on this one.
