    Why not just run a strob light constantly? It would be cheaper.

    Hi Shawn, I know your channel is about traps and trapping, but I also see you have many many videos that have "debunked" every deterrent/repellent product/method most commonly suggested. I was wondering, have you ever found anything that works as a repellent.....especially in something like an engine compartment of an auto, or the numerous cavities of an RV camper? Thanks in advance!!

    I bought this for mice in my garage, but the manufacturer wonโ€™t commit to saying that itโ€™s effective against mice. Do you think it will work?

    It should be on a motion sensor plug so it only activates when an animal is present to save energy.

    The unit is $149 and the replacement bulb/tube is $49.95. The bulbs supposedly last a couple of years. Not cheap but worth it if you do not want to use traps or spend probably at least $200 on an exterminator. One guy quoted me $750! I bought The Evictor but need to get up to my tight fit attic to put it up there. Very claustrophobic. I am glad to see it works in Shawn's test. I thought it would work for squirrels but wasn't sure about rats because they are so rugged. Be careful if you buy one, do not look at it or even near it. You will get a bad headache quickly even if you look away. I bet these critters get a headache from the light too.

    The Triburst light bulb, available on Amazon, is much less expensive, more economical and and has been almost instantly effective in my attic. No more mice or rats and helpful to me light left on continuously in a formerly dark and nasty place.

    A friend told me about how the "snowbird" population of retired people in his community would leave bright lights on in their engine bays while away for several months. The idea was to keep rodents from nesting in there. I wonder if, assuming there is no food to attract rodents, it is effective for a similar reason as this device.

    Place mirrors and/or reflective duct tape behind & at the sides of the strobe. This will provide more light.

      Cheaper disco style strobes are usually not bright enough, and the industrial grade Evictor is omni-directional, shining in all directions, weather sealed and rated to last 7,000 hours. It is also brighter than the cheapest strobes at 175,000 candle power and guaranteed to work.

  82. BassheadGTP

    If it were one of those strobes from an old school bus where the strobe ballast make a loud noise everytime it flashes would probably work better than this thing.

    i'm pretty sure that would drive away pretty much anything but moles. having it run for 20 seconds is already pretty annoying. that said you should try it again in winter, because mild annoyance will probably not deter a cold or hungry animal from seeking shelter

    You know what works better than a strobe light for $150,? Its putting $150 into sealing your house and keeping them all out. That's what Affordable Critter Solutions does in Orlando fl.

    Is it motion detecting, or on some sort of timer? Either way there's no reason a simple consumer grade strobe light should cost one hundred and fifty dollars. The average tinkerer could build a simple strobe light for a fraction of the cost.

    I used halloween strobe lights with fairly good results, the rats left until the cheap light failed, as long as I had a flashing light they wouldnt hang around so I had to check the light every few days and replace it when it went bad. I upgraded to a 12v strobe for tractors w/o the lens, a small solar panel and battery, it was still working when I moved out

    Clever idea but for that price it should include sensitive PIR sensors to trigger it only when rodents are around, that said, the quiescent current of the PIRs would be greater than the running current of the strobe.
