Although the Apesto Black Edition is safe to use around most house pets, we recommend closely monitoring your pet's behavior for the first 48 hours while using the Apesto Black Edition.
• Cats/Dogs While rare, it is possible that some cats and dogs may hear the sounds produced by the Apesto Black Edition.
• Birds vary so much in size, breed and behavior, to be safe, we recommend not using the Apesto Black Edition in the same room as your bird, or near the birds cage. Some customers have reported their birds seem bothered by the ultrasound; other customers tell us their birds seem just fine.
• Fish will not be affected by the Apesto Black Edition.
• Reptiles have much lower hearing ranges than mammals (I.e. people, dogs, cats, and rodents), so they will not be affected by the Apesto Black Edition. This also means that the Apesto Black Edition cannot be used to repel reptile pests. Rodent Pets Rodent Pets include Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Chinchillas, Ferrets, Hamsters, Mice, Gerbils, Rats, Degus, Prairie Dogs, and Sugar Gliders. Since the Apesto Black Edition uses ultrasonic sound designed to repel rodents, your rodent pets will be bothered by this unit. But, since ultrasound does not go through walls, rodent pets can be kept safely in a bedroom (or another room) behind a closed door. Your pet will also be safe if the Apesto Black Edition pest repeller is used on the other side of the home, or on a different floor of your home, or if the pet is outdoors and the Apesto Black Edition repeller used is indoors.
