How sound wave affects animal ?

Post by VitCon » Sat Sep 15, 2007 6:47 am

I am doing research about how sound wave frequency affects animal such as ant, fly, rat... :lol:

I intend to build a list of frequency that make the animal feel comfortable, or make them go away. For example, the internet says that the frequency that make the mosquito feel umcomfortable and make them go away is between 16000 Hz and 20000 Hz.

I used Google Search, but all of them only give me the range of frequency that the animal can hear.

Where can I find the information I need ? Please help me.
