You also want to keep in mind the type of pests you're trying to repel. There are some effective ultrasonic rodent repellers on the market, but mice and rats may not be your only problem.

Best For A Single Room: Neatmaster Dual Microchip Ultrasonic Pest Repeller

This plug-in pest controller can cover up to 1,200 square feet and features different "modes" to maximize efficiency for different pests. Like other devices, this option features a dual microchip, which allows it to really blast out irritating frequencies for pests throughout your entire home. Green and blue modes are completely inaudible, while red is loud and noisy for those pests that just won't leave. On top of all that, it repels just about any and every pest you can imagine, including rodents, bedbugs, mosquitos, spiders, and cockroaches.

According to one reviewer: "I wasn't expecting this product to work. It totally worked! I had an issue with mice resulting from underground digging at a nearby construction site. I tried various traps, none of which worked, and have pets so didn't want to use poisons. I installed several [of these] throughout the house and, from Day 1, not one mouse."

Best Value: Rostermark Ultrasonic Pest Repeller

Not only is this value pack of repellers highly effective, but it's super affordable, too. The set comes with six plug-ins, and each one features dual microchip technology that allows these repellers to reach farther. This technology also emits various frequencies to keep rodents and insects from growing immune to the device over time. Plus, each repeller covers up to 1,600 square feet, so you truly get your money's worth.

According to one reviewer: "One of the nice things about this product is that it is very quiet. I have not seen any creatures or evidence of creatures around since plugging them in. If you are looking for this type of product, I highly recommend this one."

Best For Outdoors: TEL Solar Powered Ultrasonic Pest Repeller

To tackle pest problems before they even reach the house, these solar-powered repellers are great for outdoor use. Here's how they work: Each repeller features a stake that you place directly into the soil or grass near your home. The "crystal" design on top traps in solar rays to charge the stake, which releases an inaudible, high-frequency tone underground. This tone prevents rodents, snakes, moles, gophers, and other pets from approaching your home, and both repellers combined cover a surface area of 7,000 feet.

According to one reviewer: "Our backyard has been overrun with mice and voles this summer. They were living all around the patio and we'd see them all day long scurrying through the garden and across the patio. We ordered these and put them strategically at the corners of the patio. We've had them up for nearly a month and we have not seen any little creatures running around. We're pleased."

Also Great: These Mini Rodent Repellers That Double As Night Lights

These mini ultrasonic repellers are perfect if you're looking to get rid of rodents, specifically. The high-frequency tone these emit is effective at ridding your home of rodents, while also doubling as a soothing night light. Each repeller in this pack of six features a small, blue ring that isn't overpowering. Plug them into your bathroom, kitchen, or hallway in place of a regular old night light. One note: Because these repellers are so small (and are only equipped to handle 400 square feet a piece), Amazon reviewers suggest using a few in larger spaces.

According to one reviewer: "[Rodents] don't stick around! For larger rooms, I recommend using 2 in that room. I have at least one in each room. They definitely serve their purpose for sure!"
