BugVibes is the first product of its kind. It’s environmentally friendly and is very effective at reducing Japanese beetles. Unlike Japanese beetle traps and Milky Spore, it actually sends Japanese beetles away from sensitive plants.
BugVibes can successfully be attached to plants, trees, and house siding and uses actual vibrations to scare off pests. While it’s very easy to use, internally BugVibes incorporates electronics to continuously alter and adjust vibrations on the plants it’s attached to. This allows it to continually adjust to the environmental conditions to make sure that bugs are targeted when they are most active.
While originally developed to fight Japanese beetles, it’s been tested on other pests such as birds, box elder bugs, squash vine borer, etc.
Vibrations target the pest's "fight or flight," reaction since vibrations felt through hand/feet/claws/legs/antenna are used to indicate a nearby predator.
One of the most common ways to control Japanese beetles (as most other forms of control show limited effectiveness) is to place a pan or bucket of hot soapy dish water below the plant and shake it. They then fall into the water and die. This also shows that Japanese beetles are turned off by vibrations. After trying this out, this theory also proved to be effective on many other pests.
