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.

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! RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST OCTOBER 18, 2012 Dear Sandra, Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and are glad to hear that the Victor® Heavy Duty Sonic PestChaser® (model M792) worked so well and so quickly for you. We also hope that Rocky isn’t still missing his would-be friend too much. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867).

It worksJuly 22, 2011
That is really all I can say - it really works. We have a cabin in New Hampshire that is closed for the winter each year. Come spring we are overrun with the remnants of mice that live there year round. Last year we left several of these plugged in when we closed for the winter. Amazingly enough, there was NO - repeat - NO sign of mice when we returned in the Spring. It really works. Give it a try.
It works, no mess to clean up!June 14, 2011
My next door neighbor decided it would be a good idea to leave trash outside his door. As expected mice arrived in my apartment and I was not happy at all. I called an exterminator and he put down some traps but that didn't work and it was a waste of time. I went online and ordered this sonic chaser and it worked immediately. The best part is I think I chased the mice to my neighbor's apartment....cool!
Rat-free and loving it!April 06, 2011
Like other reviewers, we were skeptical but after being rat-free for over three weeks, we are believers. We have been battling rat infestation for almost 5 years now and this winter has been the worst ever. We could hear them in our walls and on our ceilings. One night this past January they were gnawing so loudly in our ceiling that we were awakened by the sound. We have had countless exterminator companies at our house and spent hundreds of dollars to no avail-until now. A family member suggested using the heavy duty model so we bought two of them. We were so skeptical that they stayed in the boxes for a few days. Finally after we had another night of incessant rat activity we plugged them in and waited. We heard rats for the first two nights but on night #3 they were gone. We are absolutely amazed and feel so fortunate to have found this product. Having a rat-free house for the first time ever is something we never thought possible. Thank you, Victor, for creating such an amazing product.

Reviewer: Pide Piper
After several months of dealing with what I could swear were genetically enhanced mice in my garage with the typical means I decided my last ditch effort before just claiming them as dependants on my taxes would be to try the sonic repellant. I purchased the Heavy duty and the 3 pack of the direct plug in sonic emitters. I was fully prepared to write a scathing review on how it doesn’t work on Texas rats and how it was a waste of money, however, I'm pleased to say the rats packed up and left town (or at least my garage) within the third day. I was amazed when I walked in my garage and didn’t hear them scurrying around. Also, I tested to see if they had just learned to be sneaky, still suspicions of genetic alterations, by leaving their favorite food out, Bird feed, and not a single seed has gone unaccounted. Victor, Thank you for an excellent product that lives up to the manufacture claims and exceeded my expectations!

We have been using Victor Sonic for 5 years now and with great success at our mountain top location. NO more handling diseased infested traps. Even better success with the Victor Sonic HD PestChaser. Thanx!
--- No more "Mousie"!April 30, 2010
All winter we, (I vand my wife) have been invaded by mice. They were into EVERYTHING! - One day, after being bitten in my sleep by a mouse, (did not puncture the skin) - I was desparate. I had used traps & bait & caught a lot of them, but they kept coming. Last weekend I bought two of your sonic units & plugged them in. After one day, to our amazement, no mice, no new sign of them, no more "scratching" noises at night, and no more bites! I am very happy I purchased them. We have peace & quiet now! ---- Thank you, - Victor!!!
WORKS GREAT!March 07, 2010
I was storing my popup camper in a old garage, I saw signs of mice so I set out a couple of traps, every time I came to check them I would have killed one or two, they just kept coming, so I tried Ultrasonic and I have NOT seen one mouse since ( like 3+ months ) Great product!!!
Give it a chance!March 07, 2010
First off, I was very skeptical of this product. I just didn't see how it could or would work. We live outside of a small town in a fairly rural area, and pretty much every winter, our garage gets 'invaded'. Some years are worse than others and this past winter was particularly bad as we heard them scratching around in the attic for the first time. We had tried virtually everything including traps, bait, poison, and even the neighborhood stray cat. Those items worked with minimal effects at best. Out of what amounted to an act of desperation, we decided to give the Victor Pest Chasers a try. After about two or three days, there was no longer any evidence of mice. We placed two in the garage and one in the kitchen (just in case). IT DOES WORK!
Works for meJanuary 21, 2010
I had rats entering the space above the acoustic ceiling and I could hear them running around. Since I put this device I have not heard any rats.
WorksJune 09, 2009
This does work... I had rodents in my garage...I could hear them at night and saw the droppings.. I bought this product.. plugged it in.. that night the garage was quiet and when I looked around in the morning there were no droppings !!! and haven't seen any or heard anything since. I highly recommend this product.
Finally Peace of Mind!November 03, 2008
I just have to write and let your company know how they have helped my wife and I relax and enjoy our home again. We live in the middle of corn and wheat fields and every fall we have to deal with the field mice invading our home. Our daughter has used your Victor Pest Chasers for years and has sworn by them. We have never seen a mouse at their house even once. Well, we finally decided to try them after having to kill about 6 or 7 of them this fall. Since we have put one in each room of our house, we have not seen even one mouse! My wife really gets nervous if she sees a mouse or suspects one is in the house, so this has been a Godsend to her. Thank you so much for a product that really works! And like my daughter always says....make sure you put one in each room, don't skimp, and your rodent problem will be solved.
Am I a mouse?November 01, 2012
Reviewer: Anon Y. Mouse
This product works great at keeping mice out of my kitchen. However, I fear that I must now ask my parents if I was adopted, because the product description says the sound can only be heard by rodents, and yet I can quite clearly hear a high-pitched buzzing sound, even from the next room. Am I a mouse? RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST NOVEMBER 02, 2012 Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE Thank you for taking the time to submit your online review of the Victor® Heavy Duty Sonic PestChaser® (model M792). We are glad to hear that this product has been working well for you. It is normal to hear some sound with these units. The sound is not the ultrasonic sound waves, but instead the vibration of the speakers. However, once you take a few steps away from the unit, you should no longer be able to hear the sound. We have forwarded your feedback to our Product Development Team. We would like to learn more about your experience and work with you to make this right.

works as describedJanuary 05, 2009
My entire village has a rat problem. The rats were in and out of my garage. I purchased this product, placed it about 3-4 feet from where the rats were entering under my garage door. the rats would pook their head under, hear it and run off. It really did deter them from entering my garage again.

Didn't work for meNovember 19, 2012
I have a rat in my basement and I bought this device to repel it. placed in next to the hole it was coming from and for a whole week I still see evidence of the rat going in an out the hole even though this device was running all the time about 4" away RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST NOVEMBER 21, 2012 Dear Ron, Thank you for your online review! We are sorry to hear that you have not yet seen the desired results from the Victor® Heavy Duty Sonic PestChaser® (model M792). It is important to keep in mind that ultrasonic repellents will not provide instant results. The ultrasonic noise creates an unwelcome environment to rodents that can take 6-10 days to be effective. If the rodents have easy access to food and nesting supplies it may take longer for them to be repelled. This is especially true during cold weather months. We hope this information is helpful.

Do not buy.June 18, 2012
I have a small three bedroom house where my two toddlers and i live and I have a mouse. I bought three of these and I have had them out around the main part of the house mainly the kitchen for two weeks now and I wanted to get a peace of mind and text it. I placed a thin mint cookie broken up less then a foot from the devise and and checked it a one am to see if the mouse would come out and get it. Low and behold the cookie is gone. This devise doesn't not work. And having three of them in a small location doesn't make it work better. RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST JUNE 19, 2012 Thank you for reviewing the Victor® Sonic PestChaser® Ultrasonic Rodent Repellent, your feedback is important to us.

IneffectiveApril 25, 2012
Bought 3 of this because of the great reviews, I'm currently living in an apartment on the ground floor. I installed one in my bedroom, kitchen and living room for a little more than 4 months and I still see mice running in and out of my room. I tend to be a neat freak and my room is spotless, no food of any kind is eaten outside of the kitchen. Is the ultrasound affected by the carpeting in my apartment? Because I see the mice running up to one of the machines in the living room sometimes and it's not repelling them at all. But all in all, it was a huge waste of my money. RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST MAY 16, 2012 Thank you for your online review. The Victor® Heavy Duty Sonic PestChaser® (Model M792) is best suited for applications where a rodent infestation is under control. The PestChaser® works as a repellant to deter new rodent populations from entering the home. If a current rodent problem is present it is suggested to use the repellant in conjunction with traps or rodenticides. The ultrasonic frequency output from the PestChaser® will not be affected by carpets but it is important to placed facing an open space and not behind furniture or large objects. The PestChaser® should deter any rodents from approaching by emitting an unpleasant sound. We are sorry to learn that it was not effective for your application.

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.
