If the guys have cell phones, then it's technically still electronic devices.

i had one when i had a house with a basement. it kept the mice out, but did nothing to keep the large, ugly spiders from hanging around. we GOT IT to keep the spiders away. the cats loved our little mouse visitors.....and it had different settings, so we tried using it different ways.  no change.

BUT, on the other hand, co workers have chatted about the tremendous success they have had with the ones they have tried...so i guess it just depends on which one you buy, and what creatures you want to keep from moving in with you.
