About a week ago, I was outside at night, and the bugs bit me up bad. I put some of my kids’ not-too-toxic repellant on my arms and neck. Somehow, they got up my shirt and ate up my back.
So, the next day I started looking for small area repellants. (I could still use some recommendations!)
I came across a device by Pestnot, advertised on Amazon as:
Pestnot ULTRASONIC PEST REPELLER PLUG IN – Pest Control (2018) UPGRADED ELECTRONIC Repellent + Night Light with MULTIPLE WAVELENGTHS to target MORE pests – Especially Mice, Mosquito & Roaches.
Is that… is that a Porter Cable speaker repurposed into an ultrasonic pest repellant device?
The plastic housing looks identical to me.
So… what do you suppose happened here?
I found Dewalt LED light heads at a surplus electronics retailer. So maybe a huge quantity of Porter Cable speakers or injection-molded housings were sold to a liquidator? Maybe the device manufacturer saw the Porter Cable device and ordered up a batch (from who?) in the same color scheme?
The internal components are likely different. A little different? I’m not compelled enough to do a teardown.
But still, I thought this was a cool and interesting find.
