Comment Re:Remove food, remove rats (Score 1) 1032

hah, i used split loom tubing (split flex?) for keeping my cat from my chewing cables. Well that solves one problem...

that stuffs been used in the auto industry for many years and it works pretty darn well.

Still, keeping my cat off the cables is not that hard, and it's ceased to be a major problem, i imagine mice/rats are a lot harder to control and can get into much tighter spaces. I ended up spraying the cables with something nasty and that helped as well. I saw mentions of pepper spray and what not, I've never tried it for mice but it's worth a shot.

I can't agree more with the food source thing, a certainly family member of mine can't figure out why there's mice constantly on the kitchen counter when there's regularly a pile of compost sitting on there waiting to be hauled out...at least we have a cat...

I've used electric traps before, supposedly a bit more humane, but eh whatever, even regular traps can't be half as bad as the random things we've done to those things in the lab...
