Ugh! We've suddenly entered mouseagedden! Huge infestation. My quail cage is in a garage like area of my house. I've read a bit of tips on here already and will pick up his food at night. I already have all food (people and animal) locked up tight when not in use. I've been using traps and scent based natural repellents around the house as well as storing extra bedding, clothes etc in storage tubs as opposed to just in the back of the closet. That seems to be working well, but now they decided to move into the quail's area. My question is, is it safe to use the herbal repellents near my quail? Will it harm him in any way? Thanks P.S. I won't use poison anywhere ever. I don't want to take the risk to my dogs or even local wildlife.
