Reviewers Not All Crazy, I, Not A Crazy Person, Promise - It Works
on October 7, 2017
Okay, I know what you're thinking: "These nuts with their reviews. This is just a bunch of mumbo jumbo." I was you just a few days ago. I knew these things existed, but I dared not even consider them because I thought myself of a logical mind. "If they've solved pest control, then why are they always sold on late-night infomercials, why doesn't everyone own one and why are the people that do always complaining about their bug problem?"
When we moved into a new home with a spider problem and, well, a bit of a bug problem in-general, we found ourselves looking for solutions. We were hesitant to spray because we have cats and, frankly, didn't really want to take to killing the little buggers en masse. In looking at what was available on Amazon, I kept running across the ultrasonic devices. I decided to take a second look and found these. The number of reviews were solid, the rating was five stars, and the price suitable for a whim. I clicked "Buy".
We plugged them into some problem areas around windows and doors. The effect was immediate. Remember, now, I was skeptical. I thought I had bought some junk and I would be the laughing stock of the household. But, the family agrees: Either these things put out a signal that renders the human brain unable to see insects, or these things just work. And, no, we don't own any copper bracelets, we don't eat dump cakes and we understand that our waists aren't getting any slimmer without a little hard work.
Since installing these, we have seen some strange things. We've seen spiders crumple to the ground as they approach the door, then turn and run in the other direction. We've seen flies come to the stoop and, instead of coming in, make an immediate U-turn. Not only are pests not entering our home, but the outside areas have cleared out as well. Our back patio is free of bugs in-general and we've even noticed less moths around lights. Our cats seem to be completely unaffected and, heck, these are just great!
I'll update this review if I start to think myself the fool. If, for instance, I find out the neighbor had sprayed insecticide the day these came and that the reduction in number of insects was due to that and the odd behavior of the ones that did come in were due to mild exposure. These are the kinds of things I'll be looking for. Outside of subjecting wandering bugs to possible torture by putting them in-front of the thing, I will stop at no lengths to ensure I'm not being had. If I think you'll be, I'll make sure I let you know.
