    These bait blocks have holes through them to nail or screw to a board. By mounting the bait the mice/rats can’t take/pack it away for later and have to eat it there. You can monitor the nibbling and see the decrease when they die off.

        If I lived where I used to, Squirrel pot pie would be in order. I'm in a borough now :rolleyes:

          I use dryer sheets and fresh cab with limited results. I have tried the electronic devices but I don't think they do squat not to mention they are expensive. I tried the bucket and peanut butter deal but didn't yield any results, but I am going to try again. I like the bait blocks but notice they cannot ship to WA state from some reason (probably the tree huggers).

            We have an Entomologist expert here on the radio every Sunday morning as part of a DIY show, and he confirmed that - none of those sound/frequency generator devices are any good at deterring rodents or pestilent insects.

              damin !
              Now I know why they are gone. I just put them to the ground in a garage. Wouldn't have thought that mice could carry those away

                  Yeah tried this without luck too. Was thinking of leaving my garage stereo on playing rap hip-hop...this probably would kill me first though...

                      I have a Remington .22 pump action it's much more fun than using a shotgun for varmints.

                              Did you ever live in Illinois? Knew some Prathers that had Mopars. Dad bought a 72 or 73 RR that was a petty blue 4 speed back in the 80s.

                                In the city, I've seen rats so big they would eat the cats.
