Abstract

Horses, cattle, swine, sheep and poultry all reacted to ultrasound from a device used to clear rats from buildings. Most animals were drawn towards the sound at first and then turned away and kept their ears pointing away from the sound. Poultry showed the least reaction. The device is considered unsuitable for use in buildings containing livestock.
