    Default Electronic mice repellers

    Has anyone used any of these electronic plug in mice / rodent repellers? Was just out in the garage and a mouse was about to run in and i dont really want to have any getting into the house though i know thats easier said than done. There is a small wood to the back of the house and fields nearby just dont like the idea of them and know it will freak karen out.

    I am going to get some brush strips for the bottom of the garage door as its an intergral garage so anything i can do to prevent them i will try.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    We did have a couple of sightings in last flat but it was a much older building.

    when we found a small mouse in the loft . could looked into them as they work by going round the elec wiring but as we have a hamster .it was not safe for it. i then went down the local council and the guy came out put some bait down said it was only field mice not rats . cost me 20 pounds never seen another one yet and ive just left the bait there ,still check it just in case .. khalid

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time

    I moved out into the sticks last year and had wee mouses in the garage. The wife didn't want me to kill them so I had a quick read on tinterweb and bought some humane traps baited them with peanut butter and a raisin stuck in the butter. Put a few out against the wall and captured a pair of little field mice.

    Took them on a little five mile day trip to some woods and set them free. Likely got eaten in a matter of minutes but the thought was there! Then spent a little time checking for holes and gaps round the garage and house. It seems a hole the size of a pencil they can get through.

    Bought some peppermint oil as by all accounts they can't stand the smell. Also when the weather gets better I'll grow some mint around the garden etc.

    For me it was easy to get rid and I've never seen any sign since (droppings etc) but I don't doubt due to where I live I'll get them again. If it ever got too bad I'd not think twice of getting snap traps but I'm not keen on bait as they'll F off and die somewhere inaccessible and stink.

    HTH. From Jimbo oo-aarr in der country.com
