A detailed design description of a stand-alone, auto-frequency select, ultrasonic brand of electronic pest control device that is unique in the sense that: it is solar powered, pest specific, field/farm operated, audio back-up, auto-frequency select and multi-directional in nature was hitherto presented using design calculations and analysis supported by circuit diagrams and component specifications. In this work, the conceptualized design was physically realized to specification using electronic construction technology. Implemented section by section on breadboard before soldering onto a veroboard, the cased device was made to sit on a fabricated adjustable stand to provide the needed exposure both to crops and solar insolation. Result shows that the assembled device saturates the vicinity of broadcast with ultrasound capable of deterring weaver birds. Recommendation was made for a performance evaluation of the device in weaver birds infested farms.
