My Pestrol unit is great for getting rid of mice

published

I have had a Pestrol unit in the house for several years, and give it 5 stars for all of those years. We had a big problem with mice, and your product solved it for us. No more mice! The first position we put it in didn't work, so we shifted it to a different location. That worked a treat. However recently, rats in the ceiling have become a problem, and while this unit is still effective for preventing mice, it isn't so much, for the rat problem. What do you suggest?

Terrible customer service

published

I called to enquire about this product as I was unsure which power outlet I should plug the product into to achieve the best result. The person who answered my call raised her voice over me when answering my first question. I feel very hard to speak with this person and I did not get a clear explanation of my question. I feel not confident try out this product.

Purchased in at The CPAP Clinic Physical store for $119.

Does not work. Won't refund

published

This product does not work. Furthermore, Pestrol will not process my returns request within the 30 day money back guarantee period. Seems they are doing everything they can to ignore my refund request.

They really work .. Rodents mysteriously stopped scratching in the ceiling after 48 hrs of plugging in 2 units

published

The pestrol plug in rodent deterrent really works.. Magic happens when you plug in.. The constant noisy, unsettling scratching and shuffling of the rodents in our ceiling all night literally disappeared with 48 hours of plugging in 2 either end of our 3 bedroom home..Don’t even bother with cheap copies, they are useless…make sure you have them
Installed properly, my neighbour also bought 2, complained she still had rodents, on checking she had them plugged into power extension boards and only switched to the first setting.. All good now, they have gone…

May work short term but not over long term !

published

We bought this Pestrol device for use in our basement which has mice problems on and off. It was bought for NZD $119 at a Mitre10 store. During initial installation, the device appeared to work (may be 6 months), However, the mice activities fired up again after that. The mice are even eating baits within a metre of this device. It obviously did not work or stop working. Considering the price of the device, it is very poor value and not fit for purpose !

Purchased for $119.

A waste of money.

I have 3 units in my single level home in Brisbane qld for the past 4 years. Every night I can hear the activities of rats in my roof & walls. Pestrol Rodent Free is far from being fit for purpose!

Its been an interesting year to say the least, mates told us to try these pestrol thingies and we have given them a go. With our beautiful dogs we were not going to use poisons again this year. So here we are after 3 months, no sign of those little furry buggers. Thanks Pestrol

Great product and great company to deal with

published

Living in a rural area we were always battling with keeping the rats and mice out, using Baits worked but left dead rodents in the roof or walls which caused very unpleasant odours. I was reluctant to try these but I am glad we did as we have seen a massive drop off in the number of mice. We have a larger house so I bought an extra unit to make sure we got the coverage. I even put one in my shed and that has seen the same result.
In addition to the product working well we had one unit stop working, we contacted Pestrol and it was just replaced straight away with no fuss.

Mice plague bonanza

published

Prior to getting this we would be catching 10 - 15 mice every night. We have a 3 bedroom country home, so we got 2 devices and after only about 2 weeks none of the traps have been catching any mice. We don't see them anymore in the house. Very happy and definitely recommend.

Hey Margaret,

That is correct, the green light will stay solid, the red and yellow lights will flash

Cozzy

Hi Margaret, yes this is correct. The green light stays steady, red and yellow flash continuously. We're still very happy with our units, more than 2 years later. Not one cockroach in the house, and this was the main reason for buying them.
