    If I plug in one of those devices that emits a high frequency sound that supposedly keeps the rats away, do you think it will drive my girls batty, and make them start pulling out their own feathers? I hear that shopping malls have installed such devices to keep teenagers from loitering....

    I'm certain those devices work well for thier INTENDED purpose.
    Unfortunately , that purpose is to seperate YOU from your MONEY
    I wouldnt count on it doing anything else

    Barefoot is absolutely right. I spent a fortune on those things because we had such an infestation of both mice and rats.

    Those gadgets are worthless!
