Ultrasonic repellers are a popular choice for those seeking non-toxic and non-invasive pest control solutions. Bectine's Ultrasonic Spider/Pest Repeller promises advanced tech that's eco-friendly and effective. As part of the Repellent Guide team, I undertook the task of testing this product in various environments. Let's dive into the findings.

First Impressions:

The repeller comes in a sleek design, easy to plug into standard wall sockets. The blue night light feature may be useful to some though it's questionable whether it's appropriate for such a repeller, perhaps it's a bit gimmicky. The specifications indicate a wide coverage area, which sounds promising for larger spaces.

Test Setup:

  1. Installed in a basement apartment with a notorious spider problem.
  2. Plugged near a window with frequent spider sightings.
  3. Positioned in an office space with ant activity.
  4. Installed in a damp, bug-prone garage.

Team Feedback & Personal Usage:

1. Immediate Impact: One of the most impressive observations shared by our team, and one I can vouch for, was the almost immediate reduction in spider sightings. My basement, which usually has 1-2 spider sightings a week, had none within a few days of installation.

2. Ease of Use: Simply plug it in, and it starts working. The blue night light can be switched off if it's too bright, but it's unclear if this affects the repelling function.

3. Effect Over Time: Most of our team reported a significant drop in pest activity over 2-3 weeks. However, some members noticed the effectiveness dwindling after a month, suggesting a potential need for additional control methods.

4. Design & Operation: Quiet operation ensures no disruption. The design is discreet, though there's ambiguity about the blue light's role in repelling pests. A member also suggested clearer instructions about the light's functionality.

5. Coverage: While the repeller claims wide coverage, walls and furniture can impede its effectiveness. This was evident in larger rooms where some areas remained bug-prone, suggesting the need for multiple units in spacious areas.

6. Safety: The standout feature is its safety profile. It's non-toxic, doesn't affect pets (except specific rodents), and requires no cleanup of dead pests. This makes it a favorite for households with kids and pets.

7. Effect on Different Pests: While spiders were significantly repelled, results varied for other pests. Ants, in particular, showed reduced activity, but some bugs seemed unaffected.


The Bectine Ultrasonic Spider/Pest Repeller offers a non-toxic solution to your spider woes, and based on our tests, it largely delivers on its promise. Its easy installation, safety profile, and immediate impact make it a worthy consideration for households.

However, like all pest control methods, it may not be a one-size-fits-all solution. Depending on the severity of infestation and the size of the area, multiple units or supplementary methods might be required. The blue light feature, while aesthetically pleasing, could benefit from clearer instructions regarding its role (if any) in pest repelling.

In summary, if you're battling a moderate spider issue and want a safe, chemical-free solution, the Bectine Ultrasonic Repeller is worth a shot. For severe infestations, consider pairing it with other methods for comprehensive control.
