Electronic and ultrasonics affects on birds, pest repellent
by: Just honest

I have a Conure and chickens I know many things about birds but I would think common sense would tell us that it most likely is harmful to birds since that’s what they use to distinguish direction, communication and think a couple others. So if I can help anyone your best way to get the for sure answer is google how birds distinguish distance and anything that you might think they would use ultrasound to get by instead of asking others who are trying to help but are guessing at much. Good luck everyone and keep our pest safe!!! I personally would love one for the flies!!!!

Electronic mouse repllents
by: Tracie

I don't know what brand or type you are talking about to answer intelligently. We have used the kind that you plug into the wall and it sent random electrical pulses through the wiring of the house. At least I think that is how it worked.

Since I don't know what is available where you are, I would get all the information about the item and take it to your avian vet there. You are probably not the first one to need to purchase something like this where you live.

If this device sends ultra sound waves through the room, then do NOT use it near the birds. We found the best solution to be mouse traps like Victor electronic traps or the Victor Tri-Kill Mouse Trap. The hole is small enough that birds and children can't get hurt, unless you have a love bird or small budgie. Even then, your bird should NEVER be left to walk around on the floor and into cabinets so this should not be an issue.
