1. DETERMINE THE SIZE OF YOUR ATTIC, CRAWLSPACE, WALL VOID, OR DARKENED AREA.
The EVICTOR® 10K covers a 15 ft x 20 ft. area. (300 square ft.) You need to purchase enough strobe lights to cover the desired area and not leave any dark spaces. A squirrel, roof rat, raccoon or other rodent may contintue to live in your attic if it can shield itself from the light.
After installing the EVICTOR®, Flying Squirrels and Eastern Grey Squirrels usually leave the attic within one or two days. Occasionally there may be an increase in noise and activity the first few days. Squirrels can be very frustrated with the flashing high intensity light. The EVICTOR® serves them an eviction notice and they are not happy giving up their home.
2. BEFORE ENTERING THE ATTIC, MAKE NOISE, THEN STOP AND LISTEN.
The absence of noise in the attic usually means that the rodents have left the area. Shine a flash-light into the installation area before entering. Squirrels with with young can be aggressive. Playing a loud radio near the entrance to the attic can help clear the rodents out of the space temporarily.
3. HANG UP THE EVICTOR®, MAKE SURE THE ATTIC IS CLEAR.
Hang up the EVICTOR® in a central location, approximately three feet above the floor. The strobe lights should overlap and shine in all dark corners to create an umbrella effect. If there are windows in the attic tape cardboard over them to block off any outside light.
In order for the EVICTOR® to work properly, the space must be uncluttered and as dark as possible. No other light source should be on to interfere with the performance of this product while in use.
4. PLUG IN THE EVICTOR®
Plug in the EVICTOR® near a light switch or into a surge protector. Leave it on continuously day and night. In as little as twenty-four hours the squirrels will leave the attic.
It is highly recommended that a switch and outlet with GFCI protection be placed near the entrance of the space where the unit can be turned on and off remotely. For small attics it can be convenient to plug the Evictor Strobe Light® 10K unit into a nearby light fixture.
FOR BEST RESULTS, IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT THE EVICTOR® STROBE LIGHT OPERATE CONTINUOUSLY 24/7 YEAR ROUND.
Do not have the Entrance/Exit Holes sealed for at least 1 month. Many customers can not locate the entrance or exit holes and choose to leave the EVICTOR® operating year round for continuing protection against damage from rodents.
For best results it is recommended that the Evictor® operate continuously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Do not seal the entrance or exit holes for at least one month. Exposure to the Evictor® trains squirrels, roof rats, norway rats, raccoons, and other rodents to hate your home. The Evictor® 10K discourages digging, chewing, and other property damage.
Persons with medical conditions aggravated by strobing light should not be exposed to this unit.
High voltages are present inside strobe beam assembly wait at least five minutes after shutting off power before changing replacement strobe tube! If no switch is installed, care must be taken when entering or exiting attic crawlspace. This product produces a high intensity strobe light, do not look directly at the light! Your eyes will be adversely affected. Leave the space immediately

MY ATTIC HAS MOUNDS OF PINK INSULATION COVERING THE ATTIC FLOOR. WILL THE STROBE LIGHTS BE EFFECTIVE IF A RODENT CAN TUNNEL INTO THE INSULATION?
Squirrels can tunnel into the insulation. In some instances they have built a kind of insulation wall to hide from the light. However, squirrels prefer to live on top of the insulation. The nests are easy to find because the insulation is depressed into a bowl shape. Also, when you place the strobe lights in the attic, you make the area an unsuitable place for squirrels to raise their young.
MY PROBLEM IS NOT IN MY ATTIC. THE RODENT ENTERED MY HOME THROUGH THE SUB-ROOF BETWEEN MY FIRST AND SECOND FLOOR. CAN A STROBE LIGHT BE PLACED IN THIS AREA?
Yes! The EVICTOR® 10K Professional can be placed in a floor or ceiling.
HOW DOES THE STROBE LIGHT AFFECT RODENTS?
The EVICTOR® Strobe Light's high intensity flashing annoys the squirrel's eyesight making it difficult for them to live in and move around the space. They will leave the space in a few days after installation of the light.
DOES IT WORK FOR MICE?
The EVICTOR® has not been tested thoroughly to work on mice, in a limited number of instances the strobe light has been successful. If you have tried the EVICTOR® 10K Strobe Light on another rodent that is not mentioned on this site please contact us and tell us about it.

The Strobe light goes on, it flashes a lot, it becomes irritating to them, and the animals get the picture that it's not really a place they're supposed to be. The thing is, make sure you have curtains drawn in your attic, because your neighbors are going to think you have something wild going on.

Real Customer Reviews
We had squirrels in our attic and could not get rid of them by conventional methods. In desperation one day we started searching the internet for suggestions to rid our attic of squirrels. The strobe light idea came out of that search. We found the Evictor Strobe Light on Amazon, ordered it and installed it. The first night the squirrels went crazy! The second night - complete silence. We did have to buy a second light as the squirrels moved to a different area, which was noted in the Evictor Strobe light instructions. After installing the 2nd light, again, complete silence. My husband and I would highly recommend the Evictor Strobe light to anyone who has rats, mice or squirrels in the attic or crawl space.
We tried for months to get the flying squirrels out of our attic in 2008. Even the pest service told us it was nearly impossible to get them out. The Evictor lights were our last hope, and they worked immediately. No pests in 9 years! Today we replaced the bulbs for the second time. Just in case.
I had a terrible infestation of squirrels in my large walk-up attic. I installed the Evictor up there mid-March with the windows covered, and almost immediately noticed a couple of squirrels looking displaced and annoyed on the tree outside their entry point. Haven't heard any up there since it was installed. But some squirrels had been entering the attic between the second floor ceiling and the attic floor, so there could be places in there that the Evictor strobe can't reach. With the warmer weather I've had to open the windows to cool the space, so that could reduce the effectiveness. As soon as I close up all their entry points I'll have a better idea whether they're completely out of there. Wish they made a teeny version of the Evictor that would fit inside a soffit or between the ceiling and floor above. Service from the company was speedy and the product seems durable and well made -- and it's made in the USA.
"I had extensive squirrel problems for over 35 years. Two units were placed in my attic space and the problem was solved in 48 hours. I am so satisfied that there is a product out there that finally works. I have spent thousands of dollars over the years but they always returned. The squirrels do not even come around my house anymore.”
