Just plug it in. Pest A Cator's patented pulse technology was designed to connect through the neutral wire of a standard 110-Volt electrical outlet, and to send a pulsing signal throughout the wiring of your home or other structure. This silent pulse is intended to annoy rodents and may help with problems behind walls, floors, and ceilings where rodents typically nest. Plus ultrasonic technology to deliver sound waves that may help with problems in targeted areas.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I work at a school and as students are not in the building over the summer, the mice like to come out and explore the building. Unfortunately, they have chosen my office (and, in particular, my desk) as their gateway. I have sticky traps in here, there is no food whatsoever, I even tried some of the "home remedies" as repellents (dryer sheets, I have yet to try peppermint oil, but that's coming soon). I figured I'd drive to Home Depot after I saw a mouse darting behind my clean and empty trash can. Enough was enough. I bought the 2000 Rodent Repeller and was hoping to see it working with lack of mouse feces all over my desk. A week later, I walk in and there is feces--and now urine--on my desk than ever before. There is even a nice little nugget on top of the outlet that houses the 2000 Rodent Repeller. Clearly, the mouse is taunting my efforts and it is making it quite clear what it thinks of the 2000 Rodent Repeller--I have to say, I agree with it, it is utter dookie.
The web site says it's only available online, but they carried it in my local Home Depot store, so that's where I got it (I was there to pick up more traps and saw this and thought I'd give it a try). I was catching around a mouse per week in traps before I started using this product, and I've had it installed for over 6 weeks now and haven't caught a single mouse in my traps since (and have had no droppings in the house either). It's even been really cold (some nights below zero), and still no mice coming in! I've seen some of the negative reviews, so all I can say is that it definitely worked for me. I recommend it to friends and family all the time who have mouse problems.
somehow we got a rat in the wall of our bedroom and we could hear it at night going back and forth, I went up into the attic to see if by chance it was going up there so I could put some traps up there (nope). I was able to find where it was getting in, but without getting it out first I was not going to close up the hole and then have to deal with a stinky rat in the wall. Not really having a lot of options, I decided to take a gamble on this, I have always thought these devices were just a gimmick and a scam, but we didn't really have many options besides opening up part of the wall and putting a trap in. The first night we plugged it in, there was all kinds of commotion going on in there, it almost sounded like a bird was trapped in there. after about a hour the noises stopped and we haven't heard any more since then. I am COMPLETELY blown away that this even remotely worked let alone worked as well as it did. I still cant believe that it worked.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality, actually worked
I was skepitical and read all the reviews both negative and positve. I had mice in my wall behind my HDTV which is mounted the wall. I guess they found a nice warm nesting spot. I generally put DCON out in the shed and garage during the year but especially towards Fall and definately the winter. Last year, I must have killed one with the DCON. The problem was the smell !! It had died in the wall and the smell was pretty bad.
This year even with the poison out it seemed not to stop the mice. I plugged the 2000 unit into the wall where I heard the mouse and the scratching stopped. Its' been quite 4 days since and only heard the mice last nite briefly then it stopped within 10 sec .. not another sound all nite. I think they tried to come back in and the 2000 repelled them. I am still looking for a hole or entrance spot to plug up. Until I do, i'm very happy to have the 2000 plugged in.
I live in a two story colonial so I just went out today and bought another 2000 for down stairs to further protect my home. I have not heard any mice but for $25 and piece of mind ... why the heck not lol Heck, mice poision is expensive too.
As far as the negative comments, maybe your house is older and does not have as much wiring or outlets as say a newer home ? The 2000 works by sending a signal on ground wires within you house walls which the mice can't stand
The signal does not interfere with HDTV or any wireless in the house just in case you were thinking that, and makes no audibal sound.
I chose the Plus 2000 electronic rodent repeller because it took only 1 to cover my entire house. I plugged it in, then left on vacation for 1 1/2 weeks. When I came home there were mouse droppings in my pantry and a few things had holes eaten in them. I cleaned all of that up and so far no signs of mice. I've been home for over a week now, check the pantry & cabinets daily, no more droppings. We've even had some cold nights, but no unwelcome visitors. This was far less expensive than an exterminator, no traps to deal with and no chemicals to worry about with my kids & critters.
I have been trapping mice in my attic for several winters now, but recently I haven't had any luck. The mice have found a place in the corner of my attic that I can't get too and don't seem to want to leave. I've added extra baited traps, but nothing seems to work. So, I decided to try this rodent repeller. Within a couple of days of using the repeller I trapped two mice and haven't heard another in weeks. The literature with the repeller states that you must use multiple systems to get rid of mice. I used traps and the repller. My theory is that the signal from the repeller drove the mice out of the corner and into the traps. One thing nice about the repeller is that it constantly changes the frequency of the signal so that the mice don't get used to it. I have read where mice can get accustomed to a constant signal.
I was nervous because there is a small dog in the house (I'm sure some of you would describe it as a rodent as well) and I didn't want the ultrasonic noise to cause barking. Not only was there no barking, but the product worked great. There would be evidence of mice almost nightly, but there have been none since I purchased this item. Plug in the device and you're all set. I live in a three bedroom, one floor apartment and plugged it into a central location and it seems to have worked throughout. I have read reviews that it will cover multiple floors and, while I haven't tested this, have no problem believing it based on my experience. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Great Quality

Review 8 for Plus 2000 Electronic Rodent Repeller
a complete waste of money i had it for nearly a week n still see mice
PostedAugust 24, 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
it plug in the outlet for almoat a week n still have mice running around n near th ede3vice
We have tried others but none have worked as good or as long. There is a farm field across the creek behind our house. When they plant any grain crop our house is invaded by mice if we don't have a Pest-acator plugged in. We have also noticed that when you plug it in, if there are any flies in the house, they go crazy. They will fly into you like dive bombers. Soon you will find them dead. Also spiders and crickets disapear from under the house. I recommended the Pest-acator to a friend that lived next to a dairy farm that had an infestation of flies and fleas. She said that when she plugged it in that they went crazy. I had told her what to expect when she plugged it in. She plugged it in on a Friday and went away for the weekend. When she came back Sunday night, she said her house was totally different. The Pest-acator is a cheap and healthy investment to get rid of pests [no chemicals].
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality, works better than advertised

Review 11 for Plus 2000 Electronic Rodent Repeller
Every night I would hear a possum doing construction under my path tub. My dogs would bark and I could hear the possum hissing. I live in an old bungalow style house with a crawl space underneath. I threw a box a moth balls under the house and got a Pest-a-Cator and plugged it in the bathroom. Guess what? No more possum!
Pros: Easy to Install

Review 12 for Plus 2000 Electronic Rodent Repeller
I say it seems to work well because, since I plugged them in, we have not had any pests (with the exception of mosquitoes) in the house. We had an experience with a confused mouse, plus raccoons who arrive at night and activate the dogs. They seem to be gone. I hope it continues to be as efficient as it seems to be. We've used high frequency devices for years to keep animals out of the attic/crawl space and there's nothing like them.
Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality, Good Shape, Durable, Easy to Clean, Great Quality

Review 16 for Plus 2000 Electronic Rodent Repeller
I bought this item this last winter because I can not stand having mice in my house! We are surrounded by land and mice are just something that you expect during the cold months. However, once I spot one I can't even sleep at night! I really hate having traps around the house and poison is not an option with a curious toddler. We trapped one mouse after plugging the Pest A Cator in and then like magic, NO MORE MICE!!! I love this product! It even works for insects, goodbye spiders too! The only reason I only gave it four stars instead of five this that it just quit working only months after buying it and just two days later, there is a mouse in my house!!! I can't get another fast enough!! I will buy it again!

Review 17 for Plus 2000 Electronic Rodent Repeller
We have been living with some rodent between our walls for quite sometime. It would wake our family up in the middle of the night with its nocturnal activities. I saw this rodent repellent at Home Depot while looking for a solution. And a solution to the annoying pest it was! The rodent left after we plugged this into the outlet. Super easy to use with excellent results!
Pros: Functionality, Good Shape, Durable, Great Quality

Review 18 for Plus 2000 Electronic Rodent Repeller
Winter seem to bring mice in the walls to get away from the cold. They don't pay rent, so they needed to vacate the walls. Since I placed these in the areas I heard movement, there has been a marked declined. They may get in the walls, but don't stay. Yippee!
Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality

Review 19 for Plus 2000 Electronic Rodent Repeller
from Los Angeles to Boston
Didn't work for repelling our Mice
PostedDecember 28, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
Bought this first week on November. Gave it a few weeks for the mice to stir like the package said.
Three weeks later found mouse droppings two feet to the left of this and one foot to the right.
Then I set up my baby's video monitor on the kitchen floor. We killed one by hand and two by traps, one got away from me. I set my laptop to be a motion detector. Two different nights my computer took pictures of a mouse running around the floor. This thing does not work.

Review 20 for Plus 2000 Electronic Rodent Repeller
I was truly amazed at how quick this product worked. I watched as the mouse ran (they usually run along the sides of the wall, it ran diagonally) the from my living into the kitchen trying to get away from the sound waves that this device was putting out. Luckily I had placed one in the kitchen as well. The mouse scrambled for cover. I plugged up the hole (With steel wool) it ran to. Never saw that mouse or any others since then. So grateful for buying two because I started to purchase just one. Satisfied Customer.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality
