There is a new pied piper in town

Rodents cost South African home owners thousands of Rands every year due to damage to food, clothing, furniture, books and many other household items are contaminated by their droppings and urine. Furthermore, calling out Pest control agencies to assist can cost you up to R800 per visit and certain chemicals and traps could be harmful to your family.

Another costly aspect of offering Winter accommodation to the neighbourhood rodents is that they often make homes near or in large electrical appliances ‚ at the back of washing machines, stoves, refrigerators and cupboards, to seek warmth. This is also where they do their teeth sharpening and general curiosity exercises: they chew your wiring as well as your phone lines and insulation. This can result in short circuits which, in turn, create fire hazards or other malfunctions that are expensive to repair. Having to buy a new fridge or replacing a damaged wire or pump is also expensive.

Plug-in Pest free is a device that’s being heralded as the ‚new pied piper in town’ and has been introduced in 2009 to Africa by Global Solutions and the Plug-in Pest Free South African agency.

The device, which is a small, unobtrusive box plugs into the wall and modulates a 50HZ signal that pulsates through the wiring of the electricity in building, it literally drives out rats, mice and roaches. The signal does not affect appliances, pets or people. It employs no chemicals and requires no maintenance, no cleaning up of dead pests afterwards and does not create any odour or fumes.

The cost of solving the problem?

It is possible to get rid of rodents with professional help, of course, but calling out pest control agencies can also be very expensive, particularly if you have a persistent or recurring rodent problem. The products and toxins that are used can be harmful to you, your family and your pets. Also, you are not guaranteed to be vermin free for months after the call outs. If you have a persistent problem and you have to call out a pest control agency to sort out the problem, say every quarter, this could result in costly and ongoing fees.
