Frequently Asked Questions
Super Sonic emits high frequency ultrasonic sound waves to create an acoustically hostile environment that repels rodents from sound-protected rooms. It’s kinder than traps, safer than poisons, and completely inaudible to people and non-rodent pets. Unlike traps and poisons, Super Sonic minimizes human contact with disease-bearing rodents (no dead rodents to dispose of).
Ultrasonic sound is a frequency too high to be heard by the human ear (your eardrum can’t vibrate fast enough). People can hear sounds ranging from 20 to 20,000 cycles per second, while dogs and cats can hear up to 27,000 cycles per second. The range of other animals can be even higher. When measured electronically, these frequencies are expressed in “hertz”, defined as a unit equal to one cycle per second. Ultrasonic sound waves are frequencies over 20,000 hertz, or 20 kilohertz (kHz). Super Sonic is designed to continually and automatically sweep an ultrasonic frequency range, well above the hearing range of humans and common pets (cats, dogs, birds, fish). Rodents and some other pests can clearly hear these frequencies. At high intensity, the sound can induce auditory stress.
Ultrasound can repel rodents by subjecting them to intense auditory stress. Very simply, ultrasound hurts their ears. In a nutshell, this a classic animal behavior modification technique. Unlike traps and poisons, ultrasound does not kill rodents. Super Sonic has the ability to provide long-term reductions in rodent populations by creating a “rodent-unfriendly” environment that discourages rodent infestations.
No. Super Sonic uses a complex “swept” frequency with multiple “peaks”. Intensity, complexity and changing frequencies prevent rodents from getting used to the sound. There are a number of ultrasonic repellers made which emit only a single continuous tone and/or turn the tone on and off at a regular interval. These units will fail to repel rodents for more than a short period of time, if at all.
Yes, absolutely. Rodent pets include mice, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, and squirrels. Never install any ultrasonic rodent repellers in rooms inhabited by rodent pets as the sound will cause your pet severe auditory stress.
No. In fact, ultrasonic waves behave more like light than sound. For example, music from your stereo can fill your entire house and, if loud enough, can be heard through closed doors by your neighbors. Ultrasound cannot penetrate any solid surface (walls, floors, ceilings) or travel around corners. This is why you need a Super Sonic for each room where you have a rodent problem. To visualize how ultrasound travels, imagine that the Super Sonic speaker is a flood light. The sound will radiate outward in a cone shape, throwing “shadows” behind solid objects and casting very little “light” into other rooms. The diagram illustrates how ultrasound “bounces” off hard surfaces to fill an average-sized room with ultrasonic sound waves.
In addition to using ultrasound, keep foods well-sealed and food preparation areas clean so you don’t attract rodents in the first place. Keep the area outside your home free of weeds, wood piles, and debris. Also, try to locate and repair any holes in walls or floors that rodents can use for entry.
Approximately 1000 square feet of unrestricted area.
Super Sonic needs to be switched on for 24 hours, so that it can continually work at keeping pests away.
Our recommendation is 2 units. Installed in the kitchen and the Living room.
100% Safe to use around children.
Starts showing effects in 10-14 days. Initially you may find a sudden increased activity of the pest at the applied area, however that is a sign that they are being affected, and will soon leave the area.
The flashing red LED light indicates that the unit is receiving power and is working. The green LED light indicates the patented microchip processor is functioning. The green LED light will cycle on/off for three minutes.
Super Sonic has a 30-day money back guarantee, less Shipping & Handling.
No. It does not use any chemical.
No. Super Sonic does not kill Pests. It drives them away.
A negligible 5 units of power per month.
No. The Pest Out has been tested and complies with all rules and regulations.
No. Its non-effective against parasites or flying insects.
No living being can with stand screeching noises forever. Given good hygiene factor, the Super Sonic, will create such noises at the frequency audible only to pests, which will drive them away, and not kill them by way of chemicals. I have seen this before – it is not effective! The products that have been experienced so far have always had a standard frequency. This gave the opportunity to the pest to get used to it. Super Sonic is the only product to have a variable frequency, not allowing any the pest to get used to the constant irritable noise.
