Class Action Lawsuit To Proceed Because Of A Picture Of Mice Snoozing Beside A Repeller

Pests are serious health hazards whether in the home or business. A bite from a red back spider can be very painful and serious. There are pest control treatments available from chemicals to bait but the application process can be quite challenging. It is also very likely for the pests to be hiding inside cracks and crevices making it difficult to reach. A better approach is to simply hire pest control in the Gold Coast for an efficient and effective solution.

In New York, a judge allowed a class action lawsuit to proceed against a company that sells and markets anti-rodent devices. US District Judge William Pauley III cited three pictures of mice lounging around the anti-rodent device. In one of the pictures, it can be seen that a mice is sitting on top of the device. The picture was definitely worth a thousand words.

Judge Pauley also noted that the lawyers submitted more than 42,000 words in an effort to convince him how to rule. However, the photographs were worth more. It looks like the mice were relaxing comfortably in the Repeller. It appeared that the mice were drawn by the siren song of the device that they would scale a wall just to snooze beside it.

The lawsuit was filed in 2015 by a group of women from Palm Desert, California and Woodville, Texas. They represented others who purchased 2.4 million Bell + Howell Ultrasonic Pest Repellers based on the advertisement that the device was effective in repelling mice, rats, roaches, spiders and ants. It was concluded that the devices which have to be plugged into an electrical outlet are ineffective.

Meanwhile, the packaging has a disclaimer that says ultrasonic signals may lose their intensity during travel and can be absorbed by soft items like carpets. Signals can also be reflected on hard surfaces like furniture.

Aside from the overwhelming stress of finding rodents under the kitchen sink and cabinets, you also need to prepare for the damages they will create. The best approach to the problem with rodents is to call pest control on the Golf Coast for the most effective solutions that will guarantee a positive outcome.
