It is with the help of professionals that an active, huge bee hive can be removed from a chimney. The best and most comprehensive head-to-toe personal protective equipment will not prepare the home leaser, owner, or renter for such a monumental and potentially life-threatening task.
They don't all works the same way. Most baits are stomach poisons & ingested when they eat it, Some dusts are the same & are ingested when they groom, some act on their nervous systems, some weaken & dry out exoskeletons (dessicants), some also clog up breathing tubes & some simply absorbed through their bodies.
I am hoping so, but we have had it for a week and still have not seen a benefit. I'll update as time goes on. http://www.ripoffreport.com/searchresults.asp?q1=ALL&q4=&q6=&q3=&q2=&q7=&searchtype=0&submit2=Search%21&q5=riddex&Search=Search Of course its supposed to take several weeks. Ive heard 1-2 months overall for some. Despite reports of it being a scam, its been working for us. A device that covers an effective area of 350 sq. ft. would ideally cover a circle of less than 10 ft. radius with the device in the center of the circle. So the device has an effective range of 5 feet. Sound pressure varies inversely with the square of the distance, so if you put the unit in the corner of a 10 ft. square room you would only get one fourth the sound pressure over the rest of the room, and only one eighth the sound pressure at 20 feet. Furthermore when cone speakers are used the sound is 'beamed' directly in front of the unit, likely covering a 5 ft. x 5 ft. x 5 ft. triangle directly in front of the unit (with the apex at the speaker cone). Knowing this you might be able to drive mice and insects away from that 'sweet spot'. Sound frequencies are absorbed by soft surfaces and reflected by hard surfaces (like your concrete basement), so sonic pest repellers placed every five feet in your basement or crawl space might be annoying enough to drive mice or insects away. After a few weeks they might all leave the basement and build their nests in your house.
You can see its egg sac sticking out of the back end of it. See the Related Link.
