    I know people don't agree with me but I use mothballs and chopped up garlic. Not where they can get it but all around the outside. I have friends that have witnessed that this does work. Good luck. Hope it all works out

    I read sulphur dust sprinkled around repels them, but I've never tried it. [​IMG]

    sulphur does work but I heard it can burn dogs and other animals that are your pets. But it does keep them away
