Makers of some electronic devices claiming to function as pest repellent products are currently being investigated for possible consumer protection law violations.
Ultrasonic pest repellers are marketed as a way to rid homes of pest without having to use chemicals or other pest-control methods. However, many people who have purchased these products have not seen a reduction in the amount of ants, cockroaches, mice, rats, mosquitoes or spiders. Though the advertisements and labels for ultrasonic pest repellers claim that they effectively repel insects and rodents in offices and homes, it is not clear whether they are able to live up to their claims.
Lentek, Emerson, Bell & Howell, Viatek, and other makers of these pest repellent electronic devices claim in their advertisements that the pest repellent devices use ultrasonic signals in the form of digital pulse technology or electromagnetic technology to repel pests from the user’s work or living space.
The pest repellent electronic devices manufactured by Lentek, Emerson, Bell & Howell, Viatek, and others are commonly sold online, such as at Amazon.com. The products can also be found on the shelves of many major retailers, such as The Home Depot and Bed Bath & Beyond.
Positioned as a safe alternative to bug sprays, gels and traps, ultrasonic pest repellers are supposed to drive pests away by sending out sound waves that affect the pest's nervous systems. The noise, that can only be heard by the pests, is supposed to irritate them enough to force them to abandon their nest. People who struggle with pest infestations often experiment with ways to keep pests out of their home or office. Ultrasonic pest repellers appear attractive because they are chemical-free.
However, there is no clear evidence that ultrasonic pest repellers are effective. The FTC got involved in 2001 and warned retailers and manufacturers to provide evidence to support their claims. As of today, there is no clear evidence that the devices are able to repel insects and rodents. Our lawyers are investigating the rights of consumers who purchased pest repellers and would like to speak with you if you purchased one of the devises.
Our law firm is investigating if the manufacturers of such pest control devices have issued false statements to the public concerning the purported benefits of the electronic pest repellents If so, then they have might have violated consumer protection laws concerning unfair competition, false advertising, and possibly even other laws and consumers may be entitled to compensation.
