Orkin says:
"For rodent control, anecdotal data may indicate that these devices can provide some level of control for a short period of time. But rodents seem to learn to avoid the mechanisms used. Mice quickly become accustomed to regularly repeated sounds. Ultrasonic sounds have limited use in rodent control because they are directional and do not penetrate behind objects. Testing of sound devices shows that about half the sound energy is gone within 15 feet of the device."
I have read that article too; yet the old wives tales persist. I have dryer sheets in our MH to keep elephants away, it must work I've never seen signs of one in our MH.
What does work is TomCat rat and mouse bait blocks placed in hard to access places throughout our MH.
One irv2 member designed a pet/child proof bait station from PVC pipe. If we still had a pet I would make one.
