Well today I declared war ....I was furious after finding the DD..(dreaded droppings). I went out and bought the peppermint oil, moth balls, and old wooden traps (verrry dangerous to humans hands ). That's it..everything is set up..put the peppermint oil on cotton balls and set about 8 of them in soda caps all over the place. The lady at the health food store also said to play the radio constantly...my luck I'll come in and find them all having a party and boogying down . Well we'll see about that....

Question Mouse Movers

One question again for the people who use the Sharper Image's Mouse Movers...
Are they battery operated? My Bambi is in a storage field and I would see my battery 'dead' along with the mice if it were plugged in...

Tin Cat

I had a barn that became overrun with mice. The little buggers were everywhere, So many our two cats couldn't keep up with them. We stored oat hay in the barn which was perfect fodder for the varmits. I was using standard mouse traps and would catch maybe one a night.

I purchased two of those Victor Tin Cats, the metal repeating traps that catch them alive. They enter...but can never leave...bwahhahaha! I placed the traps according to directions without using bait. The first night didn't have very good results. The second night I tried added about a tablespoon of catfood to the traps. This worked very well and I had 16 mice in the two tin cats the next day. I dispatched them by filling a 5 gallon bucket with water and dropping the entire trap in the bucket. After repeating this for about two weeks there were no more mice. I was victorious

Use glue -strips or 'Tin- Cat' traps please.
I'm not claiming to be an expert but the active ingredient in D Con is a anti coagulant. This is the same drug that is used in some heart medication. A large mammal (or a small child) would have to eat the equivalent of boxes of the stuff to reach toxic levels. Small animals mbeee. Sounds like a myth, but I was not there.

I was invaded this winter. I got a couple of the sonic gizmos and within about half a week no more mice. Have to like that.

Try the glue traps from home depot. they come 4 to a pack.
Place a piece of bread or peanutbutter in the middle of the tray.
once they walk onto the glue they cannot get away. they only thing you need to do is wear gloves when you throw them out, so you don't get your fingers stuck in the glue. believe me, they work.

Sorry for the mess above.
I was trying to post my first picture.
Computers and mice are the same species to me.
I hate them both.
