    It probably works well for its intended purpose.

    Unfortunately that purpose is to seperate YOU from YOUR MONEY.

    I wouldnt count on it doing anything else with good results

    IDK... the only experience I've ever had for those was for mice. When my (now) husband and I were dating, he lived in an old farmhouse in the middle of rice fields... every winter he was plagued with mice coming in-catching 5 in traps per day on average. :|

    He plugged in two electronic mice repellers, one on each end of his small old house. The next day he caught ONE mouse in a trap and that was the last one he saw that year.
