I make sure I have 1 large and 1 small device plugged at all times.
bought one originally because we got a mouse in the caravan while travelling. Rang to find the best in the van for the small one and mouse disappeared after 3 days. Bought a large one as well to use with the small in our house and no mice, spiders or roaches. Back in the caravan and working remote, still using the 2 and no mice, geckos, spiders or roaches.
You need to read the info or call for advice on proper placement of these devices for them to work properly.

Does a Great job
We bought Pest Free about a year ago. We have an old house(late 1950-60's) and had a serious mouse, cockroach(in house) and rat(shed garage) problem. Due to the way the house was built, there are plenty of possible entry points for pests, even Cane Toads have made it into the ground level area.
As specified by Mark Roach, the rep for PestFree, the mice and rats took a couple of weeks to move out, whereas the cockroaches took a while longer due to hidden eggs hatching.
Early on, we worked out the mice will come back for baits my wife had left in...
Best Product Ever For My Problem
I've been using my Pest Free PRO for over 2 years now and it's been the best thing I have ever bought. Reading through some of the other reviews, I question just how trustworthy are they? For my experience I had a constant rat problem in my ceiling. Using baits and traps only seemed to attract more, not to mention the smell and I shudder to think of the diseases that came with it. But since plugging in my Pest Free PRO, the rats are gone and haven't been back since like before. No further baits, traps, nothing! I'm totally rat free in my ceilin...g. I also noticed I have way less spiders and spiderwebs on the exterior of my house in the summer time. I'm talking like an 80% reduction! What ones I do see seem to be dead already. Again all without chemicals. Cockroaches are way down. No longer do I get 10 or more of a night when I turn the kitchen light on. In the summer time I am lucky to see maybe 1 a week, and even then it looks sick. SICK! But I don't use chemicals anymore! I don't even get ants back in my kitchen or bathroom. I would always see at least 1 or 2 ants in the bathroom, more in the kitchen. Not anymore. So I am sorry for the other reviewers they did not experience the same level of success "if" their stories are true. As for me, best thing I ever bought, it has saved me a ton on money. Well done Pest Free for keeping me and my home Pest Free and all without using toxic chemicals. Thank you.
Bought 2 units about 12 months ago, one was faulty & they replaced it they told me the brand I had been using was rubbish but theirs was tried & tested with certificates, well it's placed in a power point not 10 feet from the kitchen & still we get mice, so much for their non performance, we've now reverted back to the old wooden base with the spring trap, works 100% caught 2 mice in 3 days, so much for electronic technology which is rubbish, for me their pest control is nothing short of an overpriced ($100) scam.

Doesn't work and could be dangerous
I've had the control unit since July 2017. Doesn't seem to work but I've continued to use it in the hope that maybe it will do SOMETHING. Over the last month or so I've noticed the control unit has become very hot to touch and burn marks have appeared on the front and sides. We're told these things are safe to leave plugged in, but this seems very dangerous. I emailed PestFree on the 15th of February and they haven't responded.
Waste of money
I found mice shortly after start using the device. The company told me that I need to wait a few weeks before I see the result. I kept using it for over a month. It seemed working for a while but after the money back guarantee period (60 days) was over I saw mice again and again. It is tested and proved NOT working. Better spend money on proper pest control as the device is not cheap. I have contacted them but no reply.
best investment for sure
We live in the bush and get large bush rats. we have humane traps and catch heaps around the outside of the home. They used to nest in the laundry and garage where access was available, until we got the pestfree devices. The rats do still come into the house from time to time, but we have had zero nesting since installation. last week one of the devices stopped working and bam, rats back in the garage almost immediately. ps: does not repel cockroaches, but that's what mortein is for?

Doesn't Repel Cockroaches
I've had a PestFree Control Unit in my apartment for 2 months and I've yet to see any results. I bought it to repel cockroaches but it doesn't seem to have any effect and I still have to use insect sprays/baits.
Really disappointed. I would not recommend the PestFree Control Unit to anyone.
Does not work on mice
I bought the pestfree device about 4 months ago. After about 6 weeks of not working, the replaced the unit for a larger one. Still does not work, still have mice. After multiple calls, Darren from pestfree said that it doesn't work in all homes, which is definitely not on the website.
They offered a refund, but the previous unit I had did help with large spiders, so will keep in the hope that this one does as well. But it does not work with mice.
Don't waste your money!
I have 2 Pest Free plug ins in my home and we still have problems with mice and rats. I even have one plugged in under my bird cage and I still find mice droppings there every morning! As far as I am concerned this product is a scam. Do yourself a favour and do not waste your money!
Environmentally and family friendly products that work
We have used the Pest free domestic pest control unit for over a year now and mice issues have been a thing of the past. We are really happy with the product as it's a much safer and preferred alternative when you have children and pets in the house and don't have to worry about any harmful pesticides or chemicals. I would happily recommend to anyone.
Effective, family safe
Questions & Answers
I want to buy the plug in pest free device but I'm scared because it's expensive and i don't wish to waste resources on a scam. Please advice if this product even works on mice and rats at all? Thank you
It worked fantastic for me. After putting up with rats running in my ceiling for years, I was lucky to have no more within a week. Some of my friends who I've recommended it to all love it as well. Most were like me, saw results within a week. A couple it took a little longer. Anyway, with a 60 day money back guarantee, what have you got to lose? If I were you, buy the PRO as it is the strongest. I no longer get ants in my kitchen, silverfish are gone, even spiders seem to be way less now. Best investment I ever bought as it has already saved me a ton on buying dangerous poisons and chemicals.
How long do the pest free plug in work?
With mine I noticed the rats were gone in about 5-7 days. On the odd occasion I've heard something back in the ceiling, it's been present for an hour or two and then it's gone. This has happened probably 3-5 times in 2+ years and only for a single night each time. Never persistent like something is back and staying. Cockroaches took a little longer. For me about 5 weeks, but our problem was pretty bad to begin with. Before Pest Free easy a dozen per night after everybody was in bed and you come back out to turn the kitchen light on. Now in the summer time lucky to see 1 a month. My ants are also gone. First time ever. Something pest controllers could never get rid of. I hope my experience has helped you.
