we are trying to use a bag that looks like a wasp nest to scare away more of the pests and it seems to be working so far.

There may be other factors at play making the wasps change their routes. I don't know of any published research on these fake nests that are meant to repel. There was a discussion on a national listserv about them a few weeks ago. No one reported that they worked and a number of people had done basic studies that showed that the fake nests had no effect.

Almost every development I’ve worked in has had residents who sing praises for ultrasonic pest repellers. I'm not going to theorize why residents are convinced they work, but no research has been able to prove that these devices work reliably to get rid of pests.

I love how people's desire to find an easy solution extends to pest control as well. Honestly, if people want a desired result, there are rarely shortcuts to get you there...

Who knew that such a simple app would be able to do what commercial products do. Are there any noticeable effects of having it on the whole time? Thanks for sharing!

This is an awesome post. Thanks for the easy solutions. We've been trying to get someone to do rodent control in MA but I might try some natural ways first.

Your post is very informative. I have not seen much results in the way of sonic repellers either. Perhaps in the future we will have something that actually works consistently. Pest control is evolving all the time, and willingness to adapt and change to the different species that are being introduced, and product enhancements makes this industry ckhallengin and exciting at the same time.
