Nice small compact device. I have the unit plugged in the dining room/kitchen area that is open and not surrounded by furniture, etc to block the signal in any way. (This is recommended by manufacturer) The blue night light feature is just an added bonus. I have had it plugged in for approximately 2 weeks and no issues to report. This seems so easy compared to alternative methods ie; bait or traps.
Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish

I saw a mouse in our house and really didn’t want to set out traps because we have 2 dogs. I came across the Pestchaser which uses high frequency to cause pain in the mouse which would cause the mouse to leave the area. I’ve started the process of sweeping the house with the 3 devices. Using power strips to get the devices at ground level as instructed. They just plug into a 110 ac receptacles. One of the limitations is that the sound waves are blocked by furniture and curtains and other things on the ground. So it may take longer to flush this mouse out than I originally thought. It’s been 3 days and no trace of a mouse, I thinking he’s hiding in the house
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Shape, Stylish, family & pet safe
Cons: doesn't penetrate items on the floor

Thank you for sharing your experience with this product so far! We recommend also removing any food sources or nesting materials that may attract mice. Let us know if your need any additional help at 1-855-584-2867.
My house and barn seems like a scene from Willard. I can't bait them because of the danger to the other animals. They are getting wary of the traps ( I have several different kinds).
The last 4 days since I have put the Pestchaser to work have been the quietest. No squeaking in the house; no scurrying away of little feet when I come into the barn.
If this keeps up I may be rat free soon.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience.
I love Victor PestChasers. Here in the Arizona desert we have Kangeroo Rats, a small mouse sized rodent that will get in through an open garage, soooo, I put 3 of these in my 2 car garage, one on each side of the door and one by the house entry door. Have always used this type of Victor unit and have never had a problem in 9 years. Simply plug it in for coverage in medium-sized rooms such as kitchens, living rooms & bedrooms. It works by emitting a high-frequency sound that humans and most pets cannot hear at all. It also has a pale blue nightlight that glows softly to provide illumination, but also lets you know its working. Use with confidence my friend and keep the rats away.
The unit is about one and a half inches wide and tall and easily plugs into any wall outlet without taking room for the other plug. It lights up with a blue ring and looks more like a smart plug than it does for a pest chaser. I have some mice in the garage that I am building out and put it on the wall to see if it helps any. It's been 3 days and so far so good. I have not seen any evidence of any critters on the rafters. Time will tell.
I have wanted to try out one of these what I would call a ultra sonic sound devise which is advertised and promoted to drive out pests of many different types. My immediate problem was in my large two car garage and work shop where I store many cartons of collectable items for lack of a better place. I had noticed what I am sure was mice droppings and I would sweep them away and in a day or two I would notice their return. So I plugged in my new rodent repeller and its working fine. Since I plugged it in there are no new droppings and no sign of any other pests. It works fine.
I have a problem in my attic at different times of the year. Some times it's mice and other times I think it's bats because my mouse traps don't get touched but there are dropping on the attic floor. I cleaned up the droppings and waited about a week and reinspected the area after installing the pest chasers and found less feces on the floor. I have three of these mini pest chasers on a light socket as you can see from my pictures and they seem to be doing the job. The other nice feature is they can be used as a night light because they put out a nice blue glow and only have a slight hum when plugged in.
Tired of mice? I am! Trapping them dose not keep their cousins from coming to visit. I tried baiting but that was only effective if I kept up with it and I'm just not home all the time. The Victor pest chaser is working! I have not seen a mouse or chipmunk in days. I placed three of the pest chasers in the garage, one on each wall. They have little lights on them so you know they are working. You just plug them into an electric out let and they make a high frequency sound that drives the rodents away. I have also placed several in the storage barn.
I sure like the idea of this product but I've only had it for less than a week, so I can't say that it definitively works or not. I can say that it looks nice and glows a soft blue color to indicate it has power. I will have to update my review after I've had it awhile to report if it worked or not. It's better than setting out poison or setting traps!
This Mini Pest Chaser is 1 and 1/2 inches square with a red LED indicator light showing it is on.
This Mini ONLY keeps Rodents away and does not prevent any other critters from entering your habitat.
According to the Manufacturer, the Ultrasonic waves DO NOT penetrate wall, boxes, curtains, furniture, etc. So this Pestchaser can only be effective in an open area not impacted by boxes, tubs, etc.
The box states it is not harmful to Humans and pets (unless you have a mouse as a pet)
I recommend this product if you are trying to keep away rodents and it is an open space.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality
