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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
