Security Repels Mosquitoes With Ultrasonic Sound In Humans?
Good afternoon, I want to ask: Is repelling mosquitoes by ultrasonic sound safe for humans? And is it safe for pets too? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Based on the frequency, the sound is divided into 3, namely infrasound, audiosonic, and ultrasonic. The sound that can be heard safely by the human ear is audiosonic sound, which has frequencies ranging from 20 to 20,000 Hertz. The ultrasonic sound is interpreted as sound waves with a frequency higher than 20,000 Hertz.
In the realm of health, the use of ultrasonic sound is actually not new. In the field of radiology, for example, ultrasound examination is carried out by utilizing ultra sound waves emitted through special tools so that they can describe a variety of body organs and a person's health status in more detail than ordinary physical examination. Not only that, a variety of literature also mentions that ultrasonic sound is useful for killing and repelling mosquitoes, measuring the depth of the sea, checking for damage to metals, and many other functions.
Unfortunately, there is no scientific source available that explains in detail the working principle of mosquito repellent and killer devices that use this ultrasonic sound. However, in general, if analogous to an ultrasound examination that both uses ultrasonic sound as its core, then this should be safe, not only for humans, but also for animals. However, more clearly, you should ask this matter directly to the experts, such as veterinarians, yes ..
Safety of ultrasound imaging
I hope this helps.
