due to sudden mouse problem, have invested in ultrasonic/electromagnetic rodent botherer. seems to be working, although it's hard to tell for sure. Elvis is trying his best, but he can't get into all the little crannies that the mice hang out in.

does it zap them to death? hypnotise them? make them glow so elvis can catch them easier?

two-pronged attack - ultrasonic noise that mice don't like (above cat/dog hearing range, so Elvis and UnnamedPuppy will be happy) and some kind of modulated electro-magnetic effect in the house wiring. Not sure how that one works, but these boxes come with MoD endorsement, so it must be effective..

sometimes those things work wonders, and sometimes (if like us, you went for the cheap option) they just mean you get to watch a few confused mice.

Where did you get those?

Homebase, although I'd read about them on the interweb first. These ones seemed to be pretty effective without being horribly expensive.

We've tried these, but they upset our critters :(

We had one that was supposed to get rid of insects and spiders... and the noise bothered me. Hrmph.

The last two nights it's been in my room, and I haven't heard any mices running around in the wall or roof like they normally do. Although I did see one running through the bathroom.

Ah, living in the countryside in a house full of holes..

God - when I lived in Attleborough for a bit in this house there were mice and stuff everywhere. From an earwig in my frosted shredded wheat one morning, to a pheasant in our bedroom at about 3 am one summers night / morning.

we have had some for well over a year now. I don't think they work, it took about 8 weeks for the original problem to subside, and from time to time i still hear one under the bedroom floor boards. But i daren't unplug them, just in case!
