Rats are neo-phobic, this means that they have a fear of new objects. They are very cautious and this has to be considered when setting up traps and baits.
There are ultrasonic devices that make claims to make your Peakhurst home rodent free and eradicate other household pests, but there is no scientific evidence to show that they work in real world situations.
