Sonic pest repellent in the UK is getting a bit of a makeover

The UK government has launched an initiative to encourage companies to get rid of toxic sonic pest products.

The move comes after the government announced it would phase out the use of the product in its shops in 2018.

A spokesperson for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said: We are pleased to announce that we will phase out and replace the UK’s only commercial use of Sonic Pest repellents with a new, more environmentally friendly, option that is available to consumers at www.pestreserve.gov.uk.

“We want consumers to use these products in a way that is less toxic to the environment and their health, while giving businesses the chance to take the next step towards sustainability,” she said.

This is the first time that the UK government is allowing companies to make the change.

According to the government, the change comes as the government is exploring the use or elimination of some existing products, including household detergents, household oils and carpet cleaner.
