More than 2X the output and coverage of standard ultrasonic pest control units!
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® Heavy Duty PestChaser® ultrasonic rodent repellent.
The Victor® Heavy Duty PestChaser® ultrasonic rodent repellent emits high frequency sound waves that effectively repel rodents from protected areas.
For use in large sized rooms, kitchens, garages, attics and basements. 6' cord enables ideal placement.
Since the sound is inaudible, a red LED light tells you the unit is working properly. Reduction in rodent activity should occur within 6-10 days. Estimated service life of the unit is 3-5 years.
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.
Note: Ultrasonic sound cannot penetrate furniture, cabinets or walls. Multiple units required for multiple rooms.

Results of Lab Testing of the Victor® Ultrasonic PestChaser®
Food consumption was reduced by 67% in treated chambers
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.
I have had a winter rodent problem in my large, older home. I spent hundreds on a useless exterminator, sealed the house, then trapped for a few weeks on my own (Victor electronic rat traps worked great!) killing 1-2 rats and mice per day. But why kill when you you can prevent? I was cautiously hopeful that the Sonic PestChaser would keep me from having to move, and I was not disappointed. I put three units in my 2400 sq. ft. basement and one in the attic, and (fingers crossed) I have not seen any rodent evidence in weeks. Just to note, this product does make an audible chirping, so placing in an inconspicuous place is key, but the pros by far outweigh this one drawback. I feel like I have my house back, thank you for a great product!
My Chihuahua Lost His Friend! October 17, 2012
I was wondering recently why my chihuahua, Rocky Balboa, wanted to hang out in my garage. Lo and behold ... he was trying to make friends with a rat! I researched about pest control, and purchased the Victor PestChaser Pro. Within 5 minutes of plugging the device, the little critter came out of hiding and ran out the back door. My chihuahua is howling from a broken heart, but I'm happy to get rid of that unwanted pest.
Thank you for selling such an AMAZING product!

Victor® PestChaser® 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, PestChaser® uses 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 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 PestChaser® 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® PestChaser® is 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.
