A Pest-A-Cator is an electronic pest control device that plugs into a wall outlet and sends out a pulsing signal throughout the home. Rodents and other pests then flee the target area because they find the signal annoying.
Pest-A-Cator does not use any poison or chemicals, so it is safe for use around children and pets. Dogs, cats and birds are not affected by the signal, but rodent-type pets find the signal unbearable. After using the device for a few days, an increase in pest activity is normal as pests try to find a way to leave the home. It can take up to three weeks for the home to become relatively pest free.
