  1. Does Not Work for Bugs

    Some users of the product claim that the device does not work well for bugs, including spiders and roaches.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Place in Multiple Areas

    If your home has serious problems with pests, it would be a good idea to plug a Riddex Charge in multiple rooms - especially problem rooms. Put one on each floor, including the basement and attic, plus one in your kitchen and one in each bathroom.

  2. Don't Expect Miracles

    Based on the reviews, a purchaser shouldn't expect miracles. The product seems to work best for larger pests such as mice, and less well for roaches and spiders. Based on the information provided by the manufacturer, it should help with bugs but you might still see one now and then.

  3. Leave Plugged in

    For the product to work, it needs to be plugged in. If you're going for vacation, don't unplug it. Similarly, if you have a second home or a vacation home, leave it plugged in even when you aren't there.
