Rodent Control and Small Animal Control Products For Summer or Winter Motorhome Storage

by Barbara 25. July 2013 06:41

Question about how to reduce rodent damage when storing a motorhome.

Question: "What products do you suggest for safe guarding my motor home against invasions by mice? We store our motorhome in an old barn. Thanks. Steve."

Answer: Steve, we suggest rodent control products for the barn, the motorhome interior and the motorhome engine compartment.

The preferred units operate on AC and send continuous ultrasonic and/or sonic waves that irritate rodents and small animals and discourage them from invading your barn.

  1. In the barn. If you have electricity in the barn, we suggest you install AC powered ultrasonic rodent repellers. One of the most durable are the Bird-X Yard Guard units. Depending upon which products you choose, you can also set the frequencies to keep small animals out of the barn as well.
  2. Inside the motor home. Your choices include traditional mouse traps and battery powered electronic mouse and rat traps. If you have 120VAC in the motor home from the barn electricity, ultrasonic pest repellers can be plugged in and placed under the kitchen sink and around the perimeters of the walking area. We recommend the Transonic Pro . This unit has a steel case, has settings that include those sounds that irritate mice, rats, small animals, insects, etc. We suggest a minimum of two units. Using repellers is much less hassle than emptying traps of decomposing rodents!
  3. Inside the engine compartment. The P3 International Under Hood Rodent Repeller will help to keep the mice out.This unit attaches easily to the inside of your engine compartment. Power is long lasting via batteries, not included.
  4. Underneath the motorhome. If you have power, place two Transonic Pro pest repellers back to back and turn them on the sonic chattering setting which covers the mice as well. If you do not, then the best option would be the YardGuard units, two units either back to back in the center aimed toward the outside or aimed toward each other.

If you have no electricity, the best options are the Underhood Rodent Repeller, the Animal  Away Pro, the Yard Guards on battery power and kill traps that operate on battery power. The investment the first year can be several hundred dollars depending upon your housing situation for your motor home or trailer. Just remember the damage that will be limited or avoided over the years to come.

Thanks for your questions.

Sincerley,

Barbara

Questions and Answers About XP3 Deer Avoidance Systems for Motorcycles, Trucks, Cars, Trains

by Barbara 25. October 2012 07:06

Questions about the XP3 Electronic Deer Avoidance Systems.

Q: "I have a friend who has an XP3 Deer Hornet on his motorcycle. I'd like more information before I add one to mine. Please give me information about this system, how it works, etc. Thanks. Tim."

Answer: The XP3 was invented by Otto Jackson after a motorcycling friend hit a deer. Otto has shared several stories with me, even about how he was once riding in Florida and his XP3 hornet kept a runaway bull from hitting his motorcycle. This is information from XP3 about the Hornet. Quantity Discounts Available. Models available for tractor trailer trucks, RV's, Motor Homes, trains, etc.

Q. Is The Hornet a deer whistle?
A. No. The Hornet should not be compared with air activated deer whistles. In the lab and field testing we performed on deer whistles from 1995 to 1998, we found that air activated deer whistles require a minimum of a 48 M.P.H. Direct air flow to produce any measurable sound level. In our opinion, air activated deer whistles have little to no effect on deterring deer/vehicle accidents.
Q. What is The Hornet?
A. The Hornet is a small electrically powered sonic generator which produces a high powered directional sonic wave. This wave can be tracked at 1600 feet and has demonstrated the ability to alert deer and most other animals of an approaching vehicle with sufficient time and distance to avoid deer/vehicle accidents.
Q. What is Wave Variance Tuning?
A. Wave Variance Tuning combines reverberation and reflection of the signal. The sound wave begins to reverberate as it travels through the barrel of The Hornet. The reverberating wave is then reflected off the road surface, creating a virtual sonic echo effect and allowing the sound wave to carry a much longer distance.
Q. Is The Hornet ultra-sonic?
A. The Hornet operates at a fixed frequency of a 5,000 Hz. square wave pattern and uses Sonic Systems' exclusive Wave Variance tuning, which takes a secondary frequency to the 18,000 to 21,000 Hz. range, well within the normal human's hearing.
Q. Can people hear The Hornet?
A. Most animals, including people, hear within the same frequency ranges, although some animals can hear tones several thousand hertz higher. For most people, The Hornet's output falls within the upper end of their range of hearing and is clearly audible. However, some people, primarily older people, have a narrower hearing range and may not be able to hear The Hornet.
Q. When should I use my Hornet?
A. Always use The Hornet when driving in high-risk areas. Remember that deer are most active from dusk until dawn. Always drive with your headlights on in high-risk areas, stay alert and pay attention to the roadside. Be prepared to act quickly at the first sign of an animal. Blow your horn and NEVER swerve into oncoming traffic or attempt to dodge an animal by driving off the road surface.
Q. If I install The Hornet on my vehicle, will I never hit a deer?
A. The Hornet is not a magical device, although it is a highly effective deterrent against deer/vehicle collisions. We estimate, using The Hornet along with driver awareness, will reduce your risk of a deer/vehicle accident by more than 70%. The Hornet was tested on deer accident-prone police and emergency vehicles over a 3-year period with more than 6 million proven accident-free miles before it was brought to market.
Q. Will I hear the sonic wave in my vehicle?
A. You will not hear The Hornet while you are driving or riding. However, you may hear The Hornet when your vehicle is stopped or you enter an enclosed parking structure such as a parking garage. The wave is very directional and will reflect back from any solid object.
Q. Can The Hornet be installed on a motorcycle?
A. Yes. There is a special motorcycle wiring harness available for The Hornet. It consists of a wiring harness with the new weather-tight connector, control switch and inline fuse.
Q. Will The Hornet annoy pets?
A. Like you, pets will be able to hear The Hornet. We recommend you turn your Hornet off while you are operating your vehicle in a confined residential area, campground, etc. Most animals, particularly non-domesticated animals, may react in some fashion to The Hornet.
Q. Will The Hornet bother my cat or dog in the car?
A. No. Just as you cannot hear The Hornet while you are driving, neither will your animals. The Hornet's directional sonic wave is focused ahead of your vehicle.
Q. Can I turn The Hornet on and off?
A. Yes. The Hornet comes with a toggle switch and switch plate to be mounted either underneath your dashboard or in the dash itself. We recommend using the switch so that you may turn The Hornet on when needed and off if you are in a residential area, parking garage, etc.
Q. Why must The Hornet be pointed at the road surface?
A. The Hornet uses the surface of the road as a reflective plane.
Q. Will The Hornet scare the deer away?
A. The Hornet will alert the animal of your approaching vehicle with sufficient time to avoid a costly collision. Deer are a highly skittish animal and will normally react to The Hornet by stopping, looking and listening to determine if they are being threatened.
Q. Is The Hornet hard to install?
A. No. If you are familiar with and can use normal hand tools, you can install The Hornet in 15 minutes or less. If you are capable of mounting driving lights or installing a radio, youcan easily install The Hornet.
Q. Where do I mount The Hornet?
A. The Hornet may be mounted anywhere under the front side of the vehicle where it has an unobstructed, clear view of the road surface. Ideal locations include under the bumper, behind an open pattern grill, on a cross-member, on the radiator shroud, etc.
Q. Can I mount The Hornet inside the car?
A. No. The Hornet is a small sonic generator that produces a very focused wave that must be projected directly ahead of the vehicle for maximum effectiveness. Therefore, it must be mounted outside the vehicle with a clear, unobstructed view of the road surface, facing forward and pointed at a 45-degree angle to the road surface.
Q. If I do not wish to install The Hornet myself, where can I take it for installation?
A. Any car dealership, mechanical garage, or company that installs radios, CB's, fog lights, etc. can install The Hornet within a few minutes.
Q. Will the weather affect The Hornet?
A. No. The Hornet is water-resistant and is not affected by normal high and low temperature conditions. However, The Hornet is not completely waterproof. If it is submerged in water, the driver circuitry can be damaged. In addition, The Hornet should be protected from any direct water flow, such as a high-powered water jet that may be found in a car wash.
Q. When I have my car washed, will it affect The Hornet?
A. No. However, care should be taken to protect The Hornet from any direct water spray into the output barrel using a plastic bag or other simple cover.
Q. Can The Hornet be left on all the time?
A. Yes. However, we recommend using The Hornet primarily in high-risk areas and while driving at night.
Q. What is the effective range of The Hornet?
A. Models V-120 and V-120C have a wave carrying length of 1,700 feet and an effective range of 800 feet. This means that deer will be aware of your oncoming vehicle 800 feet away and, under ideal conditions, will be aware of your vehicle from as far as 1,700 feet away.
Q. What is the life expectancy of The Hornet?
A. The Hornet has proven to be an extremely reliable electronic device. The oldest Hornets have now been in use for five years without failure.
Q. What is the warranty of The Hornet?
A. The Hornet comes with a 90-day limited warranty and a lifetime service policy. If The Hornet fails during the warranty period, the Company will replace it at no cost to you. If The Hornet fails to operate after the warranty period, the Company will repair or replace The Hornet as necessary for a small service charge plus shipping and handling.
Q. Is The Hornet effective on all animals, such as moose, cows, kangaroo, etc.?
A. Not necessarily. The Hornet is very effective with deer due to the fact that deer have extremely keen hearing and are very skittish animals. Deer will hear The Hornet's sonic wave up to 1,700 feet away, allowing them more than ample time to assess where the sound is coming from, determine that there is possible danger, and move away from the road surface.
Q. Can I use The Hornet to keep deer out of my yard?
A. No. The Hornet is effective on a moving vehicle due to the fact that it is an unfamiliar sound to the animal and is not constant. If The Hornet is used in a fixed location, it will be effective for a short period of time until the animal becomes accustomed to the sonic wave.
Q. Will The Hornet affect my vehicle's electrical system?
A. No. The Hornet uses less than 10mA of electrical power,which is less than the dome light in your vehicle.
Q. How do I know if The Hornet is working?
A. Most people will be able to hear the sonic wave when The Hornet is turned on and the vehicle is stopped (with the window rolled down) or parked.
Q. How does the new V-Series differ from the older S-Series?
A. The new Hornet V Models utilize the latest and most reliable electronic technology and do not require grounding to the vehicle chassis. The V Models also come with a 4’ pigtail and a 3.5mm plug which connects to a new wiring harness which is complete with an inline fuse and does not require drilling a hole in the firewall for the control switch.
Q. What is the difference between the models of the V-120 and the V-135 interstate?
A.

The V-120 in black and V-120C in chrome are 120 dB units with a wave carrying length of approximately 1,700 feet. The V-120C Model has the same specifications as the V-120 except it is triple chrome plated which makes it ideal for motorcycles and certain applications where chrome would be wanted.

The V-135 Interstate is a 135 dB unit with a wave carrying length of approximately 2,200 feet. Because of its power and range, the V-135 is designed to be used on interstate highways and rural high-risk areas.

If you have additional questions, let me know and I'll get the answers from Otto. If you care about your life, remember to be alert at all times of deer, moose, elk, etc. and install a Hornet.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara

Advantages of New V-120 XP3 Hornet Deer Repeller for Cars and Motorcycles Over Older Models

by Barbara 2. August 2010 08:44

Question about the New XP3 Hornet, Model V-120

Q: "I have an older model of the Hornet electronic deer repeller. I just got a new car. I'd like to know how this model differs so I know if I should buy a new unit or re-install the old one. Thanks. Jack."

Answer: Protection against car deer accidents is easier with the new model. The new Hornet V Models utilize the latest and most reliable electronic technology: you do not have to ground the new unit to the vehicle chassis. The V series Hornets come with a 4' pigtail and a 3.5mm plug that connects via a new weather tight connector to a new wiring harness. The easy mount bracket lets you mount the unit to the license plate bracket. The new automotive wiring harness is 10 feet long and comes complete with an inline fuse. You do not have to drill a hole in the firewall for the control switch as you did with the older version. The combined total length of the new 10' automotive wiring harness and the 4' pigtail wire connected to the V series is 14 feet which makes installation easier.  The most unique feature of the automotive V series Hornets is that the wiring harness does not carry power. The automotive V series switches the ground so a short circuit can never occur. This means you can wrap the wiring harness around and through the door jam without the possiblity of a short circuit. The V series motorcycle harness also has the new weather tight 3.5mm plug and a redesigned switch housing for easy installation.

XP3 Hornet V-120 Black or Chrome Deer Accident Avoidance Features:

  • Sound Pressure Level: 120dB (A.S.)
  • Operating Base Frequency: 4.8 ± 0.5 kHz
  • WV Ultrasonic Wave: 18,000 to 21,000 Hz
  • Wave Carrying Length: 1,600 Ft. ±
  • Effective Range: 700 Ft.
  • Operating Voltage Range: 8-16 VDC
  • Current Consumption: 10mA (max.) at 12 VDC
  • The chrome model is very popular with motorcycle owners and those with more expensive sporty cars.

    The Hornet has a 90 day limited warranty and a lifetime service policy by the manufacturer.

    Thank you for your question.

    Sincerely, Barbara

    Using Power Inverters Connected to a Lead Acid Battery to Run Appliances.

    by Barbara 20. June 2009 05:15

    Question about the Cobra Cpi 2575 - DC to Ac power inverter - 2.5 kW or the Go Power 2500 watt inverter.

    Q: "hi, i am interested on your Cobra Cpi 2575 - DC to Ac power inverter - 2.5 kW Item Code WTCPI2575 or a similar model by Go Power. i was wondering if it can run amicrowave, a tv and two fluorescent bulbs connecting it to a lead acid battery, and for how long it can provide light to my mountain house, since i have no electricity. i would also like you to recommend me if you know a product for my needs, thank u"

    Answer: The power inverters we typically sell convert 12V DC to 120VAC. Your email address indicates that you live in the United Kingdom where power is typically 240VAC. The first unit you refer to has this description: This inverter provides household power on the go! It converts battery power to 120 V AC household power, allowing you to power up multiple loads such office equipment and major household appliances from your vehicle. This unit is ideal for microwave ovens, mini fridges, coffeemakers, laptops, TV sets, video games, CD players, DVD players, cellular phone chargers and much more!

    What you missed is that you have to have a vehicle with the engine running in order to power the inverter. If you attach the inverter to a charged 12 volt battery, you will quickly drain the battery of its charge. Remember that watts equals volts times amps. I am not an expert on power inverters. What I do know is that most microwave ovens here in the USA are 1000 watts. This power inverter could power most smaller microwaves if it were connected to an operating vehicle but not to a battery.

    A gasoline generator would power your appliances. Another option would be solar panels.

    Thanks for your question.
    Sincerely, Barbara

    How Cool Does A Cooler Cool?

    by Barbara 22. June 2008 08:07

    Question about the product, Koolatron Krusader 12V Thermoelectric Cooler 52 Qt.

    Question: Your information says these coolers keep items cool to 45-50 degrees below the ambient temperature. Does that mean if the inside temperature of my car is 80 degrees it will cool items in the cooler to 35-40 degrees? Thank you in advance for your response." Gary

    Answer: We checked with Koolatron, the manufacturer of the Krusader and other thermoelectric cooler models. Here is their representative's response:

    "Your customer is correct, the ambient temperature is the temperature within the environment where the cooler is placed. If the cooler is in his car, and it is 80 degrees, the Krusader or other Koolatron coolers will cool down to a low of 35 degrees inside the cooler. Please note that thermoelectric coolers do not reach freezing, so 35 degrees is the coldest the cooler will get inside. In other words, if the inside of the car is 65 degrees, the temperature inside the cooler will go down to around the 35 degree level, not down to 15 to 20 degrees F."

    We recommend that you purchase an AC adapter and precool the unit before moving to your vehicle. During your trip, use AC to power the cooler at night if your camp site has AC available or use AC in your motel or hotel room.

    Please contact us if you have additional questions. We sell several brands of thermoelectric coolers and warmers including Koolatron and Vector.

    Sincerely, Barbara
