If your neighbor’s dog has the habit of visiting your yard regularly and leaving smelly traces of their presence behind or you’re tired of shooing raccoons all the time; an animal repeller is what you need.
With an animal repeller, you won’t find a smelly surprise on your yard every morning and you also do not have to be on the lookout for other animals who have the habit of paying you a visit every so often.
How Big is an Ultrasonic Animal Repeller?
Before looking at the various sizes an ultrasonic animal repeller comes in, it would help to know what these are and how they work.
First of all, what is an ultrasonic animal repeller? Briefly, an ultrasonic animal repeller is a device usually placed around the yard or garden area to scare off animals who may be lurking close to the perimeters of your home’s exteriors waiting for the perfect time to check out the “goodies” inside your trash bins or play around your flower beds.
How Does It Work?
The device has a motion sensor which, when it detects movements within its area of coverage, sends off ultrasonic sound that is not harmful to both humans and animals but which, when the animals hear it; they find discomfort with the noise it makes.
This results in the animals hurrying off, far from the disturbing sound, thereby leaving your yard and your garbage bins well enough alone.
Ultrasonic Animal Repeller Sizes
An ultrasonic animal repeller comes in various dimensions, usually depending on the style of the device.
There is a model that comes with a long stick which you will then push down any part of your yard or garden soil to keep it steady. This type usually measures about 6 inches in length by 6 inches in width by 4.5 inches in depth.
If you do not wish to stick the animal repeller down through your garden soil, there is also a unit that comes with a base to keep it steady. You simply place this on any flat surface outside and it’s good to go.
This one measures approximately 6 inches in width by 4 inches in length by 4 inches in depth.
For a model that does not have a base or a stick but just a flat bottom, you can find this in dimensions of 6.8 inches in height by 5.2 inches in width by 3.5 inches in depth.
An ultrasonic animal repeller usually runs on batteries or AC power – most types give you both options.
