2015: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against the marketers of Bell + Howell Ultrasonic Pest Repellers and Bell + Howell Solar Animal Repellers. The complaint, which was originally filed in 2015 and amended in 2017, alleges that the company falsely advertises that the repellers use ultrasonic sound waves to repel pests and animals when scientific evidence shows the devices do not actually repel pests (Hart et al v. BHH, LLC d/b/a Bell + Howell and Van Hauser LLC, Case No. 15-cv-4804, S.D.N.Y.)
