BEST MOSQUITO REPELLENT FOR HOME OUTDOOR SYSTEM
DO ULTRASOUND MOSQUITO REPELLERS WORK?
Mosquitoes are a worldwide annoyance because of their itchy bites. In tropical areas of the globe, mosquito bites can sicken and kill people by spreading malaria and other diseases. Mosquito control methods aim to reduce mosquito-human contact by repelling, trapping or killing the insects. Among these methods are electronic repellers that generate a high-frequency ultrasonic buzz the makers claim will repel mosquitoes. While these devices purport to have a scientific basis, they simply don’t work
Some manufacturers of ultrasonic mosquito repellers claim their devices work by imitating the sonar signals of bats, which emit ultrasonic sound waves to locate the mosquitoes they eat, so mosquitoes will leave the area. Others claim to mimic the ultrasonic flight sound of male mosquitoes, which females want to avoid after they have mated. Other claimed bases for effectiveness also exist.
