How to get rid of mice?
Hi...Has anyone used the plug-in pest devices..? Are they effective..? Do they actually work..? Is there a brand that works better than the rest or are they all similar..? How do they affect the "non-rodents" living in the barn such as dogs, chickens and goats..?We have a serious mouse problem in our barn that we've been battling for a few years. We've tried mint oil (to the point that the barn smelled like a jar of Vicks...whew!), snap-traps and the horrible glue-traps and, while we have caught A LOT of mice with these methods...there are still so many (sooooo many). I'm sure they come and go as they please through every nook and cranny they can squeeze through so, I am really hoping to find a solution that will repel them from the barn and keep them from coming back.Just so you know, we try to practice sanitary controls with the feed supplies. All of the animal feed is kept in sealed tubs and, nothing is left out for the mice to get. When everyone is finished eating their grain, all the buckets are collected and stored in a sealed tub as well. The only feed-stuff that is left in the animal pens is hay and water.
