It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.
I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.
Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.
I’m thankful that hubby and I found a device that repels bugs and rodents using electromagnetic and ultrasound technology. We don’t like sprays and traps and don’t want to kill anything either. We have had bouts of ants invading our kitchen around May each year. May is almost here and we have one unit on the first floor and one unit on the second floor. We are hopeful.
Bell & Howell Ultrasonic Pet Repeller
Using electromagnetic and ultrasonic technology, this silent repeller emits a signal that drives mice, rats, spiders, ants, and other household pests away, without messy sprays or hazardous traps. It works through your home’s wiring, so one unit can protect an entire floor.
What are you thankful for today?

I have the same problem with ants. They show up in April or May and I have to deal with them for about a month and then they are gone for another year. I’ve always wondered if these things worked or not. I’ve thought about trying them.
I hope this works. It’s awful to wake up to a kitchen full of ants. I’ll let everyone know. 🙂
Please let us know if it works! This would be a blessing!
We’re hoping it works. It sure is worth a try. I don’t like all the ant sprays and other nasty stuff on our counters and sink. 🙂
We used to get big bull ants once a year when we lived up north. This would have been fantastic! It doesn’t bother cat/dogs?
I don’t think it bothers dogs and cats. It sure is a less messy way to keep them out. 🙂
We’ve had some mice which our cat bro Bert has handled for us, but this is interesting. The rodent problem appears to have been solved with some repairs but one never knows. Hope this tool works.
Good cat indeed. We’re having a new housing development near us and the field mice will be looking for new homes. 🙂
I wonder if those sounds would be frightening to a dog/puppy or cat/kitten since they can hear things we can’t?
Nope they are safe for dogs and cats. 🙂
I’m interested in this pest repeller. Do let me know if it works on the ants. We get the tiny ones and nothing seems to stop them for long. We’ve found good fortune using Amdro around the perimeter of the house to keep the large black ones out and it works for 90-days.
I’ll let you know if it works. We should know shortly. May is almost here. 🙂
The animal communicators that I know tell me we can ask the ants and mice to stay outside.
I’ve tried my hand at asking spiders to go away…results vary, but my skills need polishing.
Mine too and I thought perhaps this was a good option. We’ll see. 🙂
we have had this device, one in every room, for 2 years, it doesn’t keep ants out, which is why we bought them. also doesn’t keep big old palmetoo bugs out. and the one in the kitchen the little spider built his web on it and lives happily… good luck
Well bugger. I was hoping this would work for us. 🙂
That’s an interesting gizmo! Please let us know if it works. Happy Thursday! 💖
I’ll let everyone know if we can get through ant season without any ants coming for a visit. 🙂
Sandee I will be eager to hear how this works.
I’m writing down the information
I’ll let everyone know if it works or not. 🙂
I’m grateful for the sun and for spring. Everything turns green and blooms. I have waited a long time for this time.
We all have and it’s wonderful. 🙂
Ain’t technology grand?
It sure is and when it works it’s even better. 🙂
We tried those here and it drove us kitties more nutso, we could hear them. They are cool devises though. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
We can’t hear them and if it bothers the pets then it’s not a good thing. We don’t have any babies anymore so we’re hoping they work. 🙂
This looks like a great device. I’m going to have to check it out. Thanks for the tip!
You’re most welcome, but we don’t know if they will work yet. We have our fingers and toes crossed that they do. 🙂
We had one of those at our old house, and it worked great. Hmmm. Wonder where it is? Yes, we still have unpacked boxes in the garage two years later. Love, Dori
Oh I hope we have the same luck. That would be wonderful. Happy Thursday, Dori. 🙂
I’m thankful for you… and don’t tell you enough. Going to send your post to my friend who’s workshop just had a snake visitor… a beneficial snake but still she didn’t want it there. And a lesson I just learned was if you can see something you can draw it… really look at it as you sketch… capture just a line, or an angle until it’s a thing
Love, LeeAnna and Milo who sends doggie kisses
I had no idea, LeeAnna. You made me smile.
Sounds earth friendly and clean ~ thankful for you and hubby ` Xo
Lots of love and hugs from me and Angel ~ Xos
Wishing you love and laughter in your days,
A ShutterBug Explores
aka (A Creative Harbor)
It is both of those things and we hope it works. Love and hugs to you and sweet Angel. 🙂
I am thankful I woke up this morning. The older I get the more another day of life is a blessing.
I hear you on that note, Patricia. I’m the same way each morning. 🙂
I have heard good things and bad about this little gadget…can’t wait to hear if it works for you!
I hope they work as advertised. 🙂
I hope it works for you. We occasionally have a problem with ants but I put an ant bait down where they go in and take the food back to the nest. Not as kind as yours but we don’t see any more after a week.
We get overrun with them in May/June and they they disappear for another year. We’re hoping to avoid that. 🙂
Fascinating… Hope the electronic pest repellent works. Keep us posted! 💞 Have a wonderful week, Sandee! xo
We’re hoping it works too. I’ve seen many reviews that are raving about this and some that aren’t. 🙂
You’ll have to tell us if it works! This past winter, we had a serious ant problem. We live half underground so we have all kinds of creepy crawlies too!
I’ll let everyone know if it works or not. 🙂
I need one of these!!! Well, at least for mice in my back yard!
Apparently they work for many. 🙂
Do you have cats in the house?
We had one of these gadgets when we had cats, and it freaked them out so bad! They went crazy as soon as we plugged it in, so we had to not use it. Maybe it would work on mice and insects but I’d warn not to use if you have cats. Don’t know about dogs.
Wishing you a lovely spring Friday! <3
If the cats don’t like it then the dogs won’t either. We don’t have any pets anymore so not an issue here. We just want the ants to stay outside where they belong. 🙂
Pease let us know if it works. I will get one. XO
It might bother your cats. I’ve had two cat people that said it ran their cats crazy. 🙂
Some of these devices work better than others, i hope yours turns out to be one of the good ones.
I hope so too. It’s rated very high. Fingers crossed. 🙂
That is spectacular. We may have to get one.
I hope it works. We have high hopes. 🙂
I hope this works for you! I have seen these and will get one if the results are good. Take care. HUGS & LOVE across the miles
It may run your pups crazy. I’ve heard they can hear it. 🙂
Oh the pesky pests in the warmer months. Argh….hoping and praying this works great! I think we need one in the garage and shed where the mice have all night dance parties with the darn rabbits. Maybe it will entice the wasps to go somewhere else. Heeheehee. Good luck and many prayers for you.
We don’t want to kill them, but don’t want them in our home. Love you, Anne. 🙂
We also had 2 but look different from yours. We hope to repel cockroaches, lizards, rodents and all the other minor pests.
I have high hopes for these devices. 🙂
I am thankful that I am now almost done with COVID. Yep, I got it on April 19th. I am thankful that I am fully vaccinated or my bout with COVID could have been much, much worse! I’m glad to be on the mend!!
I’m glad you’re on the mend. Great news. 🙂
