Mouse and Rat repellent circuit using astable multivibrator

This circuit is Mouse and Rat repellent circuit using astable multivibrator which use principle of sound waves or ultrasonic cause they annoyed so it escaped away. This is small and cheap because use transistor (no ICs) and super loud since use large piezoelectric but use low current source.

Technical information
– Use power supply of 9 Vdc.
– Maximum consumption current about 48 mA
– PCB size : 2.25 x 1.57 inch.
– With trimmer to adjust the tone.
– PCB dimensions: 2.11 x 1.66 inches.
– Adjust the speed of the sound spectrum from 10-33 kHz.

The working of circuit

As Figure 1 in this circuit will have two monostable multivibrators. In frist set will consists of TR1 and TR2 are used to generate a low frequency by have C2, C3, R1-R4, LED and VR- 100K, which it is the frequencies generators to Collector of TR2.

LED will is used for power on display of this project. And VR-100K will be adjustable of timing range. The low frequency will be sent to control the high frequency generator. Which consist of TR3 and TR4 and R5-R8, C5, C6 will be combine to increasing frequency rises up. Before send to piezo speaker next.

In this the frequency generator will work according to the rhythm, The performance of low-frequency generator. We heard a sound out of the speakers at intervals.

How to build its

As Figure 2 is the components layout and wiring of this projects. Now I am sorry not have the PCB layout but you may use the perforated board or Universal PCB board as circuit diagram.

the components layout and wiring

we assemble the parts of this projects are successful

As Figure 3 we assemble the parts of this projects are successful.


Check the every devices that is accurate. If ensure that the correct. To connecting the piezo speaker to PZ point. Then rotate VR 100K to left end.

Next apply a 9 volts supply to 9V point by correct polarity, Otherwise, it may cause circuit damage.

When we apply power supply voltage to the circuit, we will hear frequency sound out of speaker at intervals, along with LED lights intermittently as well.

Figure 4 is video test sound of Rat and cockroach repeller circuit.

Then try to adjust VR-100K to the right hand fully the sounds that we hear from time to time will slow down.

If, as this indicates that the circuit is ready for use. In real applications Should be changed weekly frequency Because if no adjustment Rats and cockroaches habituate to the frequency. Make them ineffective.

  1. You turn the light on and see something scuttling across your floor.
    Clean all waste food and liquid spillages immediately.
    These are well-known to exist inside a total choice of kinds.

  2. Work on the exterior of the house as well, checking for cracks aand entry points for insects.
    Roaches like to eat woodd and will often live under wet piles of mulch, so cleaning them up
    is a good preventative. First Steps to Roach Control – Thee abdolute first thing most people will tell
    you is to layy out some sticky traps, they are just like
    the ones you find for mice.

  3. please explain for me the working of the project i.e the function of each component in the circuit…am using this project as my final submission project in the university
