the sonic things are JUNK<> WE tried all sorts of them at our hunting camps that sit empty for several months at a time some times
now have helped with mice, spiders or what ever
\ had better luck using a radio and assorted lights on timers, seems sounds of humans and light would keep mice away better INDOORS, but didn't help us at all in our buildings/sheds garages barns and such!

my other hunting property, I tore things down pretty good and filled in ever hole crack and crevice I could find with expandable foam or caulking, and been about 18 yrs now sicne I seen a moue inside the place,, spiders YES, but no mice!
it was a LOT of work, and detailed work to find and fill all places, but since I was re doing a lot of it at the time, it was worth it to me

Now, outside or other buildings that have just too many places for them to squeeze into, its been a non stop battle , I have cats here, foxes, coons, and USED to have a lot of Owl's
not sure what happened to all my owl's, as the past yr or so, they all seemed to go MIA on me, and I can tell when ever there numbers get low, as skunks start to show up here.
Owl's will eat skunks , so when I start to see skunks, I know I am missing owl's, and last night a skunk blasted a coon on my DECK, and today all the more so I am really wishing I had my Owl's back LOL

been getting a few inches of rain ever day lately and for once I am HAPPY its raining!
hoping it washes away the funk!

got about 10 inches of train this month so far!, WAY above average for the month, and the YR so far, were actually setting a ace to break last yrs record rain fall amounts, as were PAST lasts yrs rainfall for this time already>>

rain every other day is NOT fun folks
