We first purchased the Original Pest Offense back in 2010. During the whole time that we used it, it’s worked wonders for us. We first bought it because we had mice that would come and go. We never saw them but we heard them on top of our closets. Not a very pleasant sound. We heard little rodent feet running around and we heard gnawing. Grrr. We wanted them gone. But we didn’t want to use poisons. We had other pets at the time and we couldn’t risk them getting hurt. So, when we learned about the Pest Offense, we ordered them just to try it out.
Did It Work?
We had heard that they didn’t always work. But reviews said that you have to give it time to work. It’s not going to get rid of your mice in 1 day. That made us feel better. See, when we first plugged it in, we saw the blinking red light and we were hopeful. The next day, the mice were back, running around and gnawing on who knows what.
But we said let’s give it some more time.
Fast forward another week and lo and behold! We heard beautiful quiet for a whole 24 hours. No sound of little rodent feet running around nor any sounds of gnawing. Our ears were happy, so so happy. And you know what? Our house stayed rodent free for as long as we kept it plugged in.
Do we still recommend this item?
Yes we do. But there are newer and better products out there now. You know how technology grows at such a rapid pace now. Look at the iPhone for example. Which iPhone are we at now? The 7? It was all about the iPhone 4 not too long ago.
For example, take a look at this ultrasonic and electromagnetic pest repellent.
This is the one we would buy now. This one has a 4.5 out of 5 star rating with over 2,300 reviews. It also happens to be an Amazon bestseller.
