Black and Decker Pest Controlit does not work!

I purchased their electric pest control, which comes in a package of three. Plugged them in and all they seemed to have done is attracked more pests in my house. I had to continue using spray. I have cats and did not want to use spray. I was going to purchase Riddex, and people are saying they don't work either.

    In spite of the claims made on their commercials & info-mercials, these products DO NOT WORK. Think about it...would all those pest control companies still be in business if those contraptions were effective? (Seriously, take a look in the yellow pages under "pest control".)
