Do those plug-in "sonic" rodent repellents really work??

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 

Its that time of year again... hmm They're coming in from the winter cold...
I cant/wont use poison, because my cats sometimes get ahold of the mice...
And the traps kinda freak me out when i hear them go off and the scurrying if it isnt killed right away... (but i can deal with that.. if need be.)
I was wondering if those plug-in things worked?? or a waste of money and time?
Personally, i think poison works best but i just cant risk it.
If you think they work,... which brand do you use??
Thanks!

YES they will work if your aim is good enought to hit them with it.........but a nice brick is cheaper.





Really bet a good bait box for poison......



I use both poison and traps.....yep they even creep me out ,when they go off

To answer your question, I've heard they work against rodents but have one flaw.

















They attract spiders instead.  gig
