No messy traps, no dead rodents -- this rodent repellent can induce auditory stress, making the pesky little critters flee from the area.
The Victor® Mini PestChaser® emits high frequency sound waves that effectively repel rodents from protected areas. For use in average-sized rooms, kitchens, garages, attics and basements.
The sound is completely inaudible to people and non-rodent pets. Varying intensity and frequencies of ultrasonic sound waves prevents rodents from getting used to the Victor® Mini PestChaser®. Since the sound is inaudible, a red LED light tells you the unit is working properly.
It's kinder than traps, safer than poisons, and there are no dead rodents to dispose of so it minimizes human contact with mice, rats, and other disease-bearing rodents.
Reduction in rodent activity should occur within 6-10 days. Estimated service life of the unit is 3-5 years.
Note: Ultrasonic sound cannot penetrate furniture, cabinets or walls. Multiple units required for multiple rooms.

Rodent tracking board activity decreased 21%
Results of Field Testing of the Victor® Ultrasonic PestChaser®
In total, PestChaser® successfully repelled the rodents from the protected area in 13 of the 17 sites. This represents a 81.3% success rate.
Sixteen sites demonstrated that rodent activity ceased in 3 to 9 days after devices were activated.
The average number of days before rodent activity was stopped was six days.
The results, as detailed above, present a clear picture of the efficacy of this particular ultrasonic rodent repelling device.
I bought the Victor Pest Chaser a couple of years back after having difficulty with field mice coming into the house, nesting with considerable damage to items in drawers and closets. They worked wonders. I had them in every room in the house I thought including the garage.
Very early one morning at the opposite end of the house I heard a noise after listening for a bit I thought, "Oh my gosh that's a mouse! It was then that I realized I had none of the plugins at that end of the house. I went to the garage unplugged the one I had in it and plugged it into the bathroom.
In about 15 mins. there was no more chewing sounds and none since.
I can hear the one in a bathroom as it is plugged into a wall outlet closer to ear level. I DO NOT hear those down lower on the wall. So I am back for more and will continue to use them. Just so you know.

Thank you for your online review. The Victor® Sonic PestChaser® Ultrasonic Rodent Repellent (model M754S) is a fan favorite for proactive rodent prevention. The high frequency sound waves effectively repel rodents from protected areas by creating an uncomfortable auditory stress. In addition to repelling rodents from the home, the product can also be used in conjunction with traps or rodenticides for a current infestation in order to dispel new rodent populations from entering the home. We truly appreciate your feedback and value your business. Please contact us at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with questions.
I've used these for years and always had good results. We have them in the house, garage, basement and even in the barn!! No risk of secondary poisonings, no problems with any of our pets. Fantastic investment!
Victor® PestChasers® Ultrasonic Rodent Repellents - How the Technology Works
The Victor® PestChaser® is a highly effective method to help control rats and mice. Here is how the Victor® Ultrasonic PestChaser® works to repel rodents:
Non-Repetitive Sound Waves - High frequency sound waves emit a non-repetitive pattern to repel rodents and prevent them from invading your home. With over 80 oscillations per second, PestChasers® use a jackhammer-like sound to create intense auditory stress for rodents. more»
Location, Location, Location First, identify a room that has signs of rodent activity. Rodents are nocturnal creatures, which mean they rarely surface during the daytime.
Use Multiple Units Ultrasonic waves behave more like light than sound. For example, music from your stereo can fill your entire house. Ultrasound cannot penetrate any solid surface (walls, floors, ceilings) or travel around corners. This is why you need a unit for each room.
Monitor Rodent Activity Monitoring the signs of rodent activity will allow you to correctly place the units in high-frequency areas and allow you to direct the unit towards their entry points.
Use In Conjunction With Other Controls For Established Ultrasonic devices should not be used alone to control an established infestation.
The PestChaser® emits ultrasound at varying volumes (peaking at 100dB) and varying frequencies (ranging from 32 to 62 kHz) well above the range of hearing for humans and non-rodent pets like cats, dogs, birds and fish. We do not recommend using the PestChaser® around rodent pets like gerbils, hamsters, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs and other rodent pets.
How much area does the PestChaser® cover? / Does the ultrasound penetrate through walls?
The PestChaser® unit can only cover the room in which it is installed. The ultrasonic waves cannot penetrate walls or furniture so we recommend using multiple units per room. We recommend using the Mini PestChasers® in average sized rooms like kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms and living rooms. We recommend using the Heavy Duty and Ultra PestChaser® in large sized rooms like attics, basements, garages, etc.
Where should I plug the PestChaser® in? / Can I plug the PestChaser® into an extension cord? / Can it be used outside?
For proper placement of the PestChaser®, first identify a room that has signs of rodent activity. Plug the PestChaser® into the lower socket of a 110V-AC wall outlet. The ultrasonic waves cannot penetrate walls or furniture. Ultrasound is reflected by hard surfaces and absorbed by soft surfaces. In a room with mostly hard surfaces, like a kitchen, ultrasound will “bounce” around giving more effective coverage. The ideal placement would allow the ultrasound to cross in front of an entrance way. The PestChaser® can be plugged into an extension cord as long as it is placed in an open area along the wall and not near walls or furniture. The Victor® PestChasers® are recommended for indoor use only. They were designed and manufactured to be used indoors and not exposed to the elements. If this PestChaser® is used outside, the unit could potentially short out due to weather conditions, such as rain.
