These products come in a variety of forms, including ultrasonic devices, natural oils and herbs, and chemical repellents. Ultrasonic devices emit high-frequency sound waves that are believed to be unpleasant to rats, while natural repellents, such as peppermint oil or mothballs, work by producing an odor that rats find unpleasant.
