SONIC DEVICES FOR DETERRING MICE (DO THEY WORK OR NOT?)
I bought these and plugged them in - in the basement and attic where we had the most issues.
I don't know if it is them -- but I haven't found on mouse in the house since. I no longer find even droppings.
Toni Chandler has contacted me with the following information -
My daughter & I recently got 6 in a pack made by Sunbeam--theyplug in your wall and transmit a signal over the electrical circuit of the house. This type makes no audible sound like the original type which travelled on sound waves and were a total loss to me, didn't even work on millermoths. We have 2 per floor with the other 2 in our kennel and basement (MI type). They work. We purchased them at Big Lots Store. I have seen them in Heartland catalogs. They now have a more powerful model that one will cover 1,000 square feet and it has a spare receptacle. We love them because we don't have to use insecticides that our cats seem to love. Try them, if they don 't work for you they will give you your money back, no ???s.
Tony Scorah has been using a plug-in sonic device in his garage to great affect - no mice or droppings have been seen since installation and he didn't have to keep changing the frequency.
I have received the following from Cal in response to the above question which I thought you may find of interest -
Q: Weevils - does anyone know how to get rid of them and stop them coming back please?
A: Success again - we have been contacted by Sandra Girard (a health inspector) who has advised as follows:-
Thank you for this information Sandra.
Thank you Mairi Krausse.
Q: The next one is for dog enthusiasts or vets -
"I have a white maltese dog and she has ugly tear stains on her face all the time. Does anyone know what I can do to remove the stains and to stop them coming back?"
A: Answer for "Bobbie" who, unfortunately did not give me her email address. I have received a response to this problem from Rosina Skinner (thanks) apparently pet stores sell specific products for this, whatever colour the dog.
