Electronic pest control?

Anyone ever used those little things that you plug in? They emit some kind of noise that mice don't like, supposedly.
We are in the midst of our annual mouse migration.

    Tried it for squirrels. Failed.

    people get used to living in noisy cities, mice get used to sonic repellers in cellars.

    We have those electronic things in our shop at work and they don't work very well.
    They may keep the mice away directly around them, but other than that, they don't work.
    I agree with @Amos_Umwhat
    Peppermint oil works 100 times better.
    I put cedar sawdust in bags and put peppermint oil on it and it seems to work the best.

    To clarify, I use fine mesh bags. Forgot to put that part.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    So, peppermint it is.

    Electronic stuff doesn't work. Have a Heart live traps do. A few years ago I trapped and released 14 flying squirrels in a two week span. Cute little critters but not big enough to eat.

    Hell, i don't know for sure. I drove and released the fuzz balls at least a 1/2 mile away.

    FWIW, we have a mouse infestation in my office and they ate an entire large bag of peppermint lifesavers...
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    Years ago, when the child bride and I owned a little mom & pop store and gas station up in the mountains, we inherited a herd of feral cats that the previous owner had been feeding. 

    Every now and then, when we’d step out the front door to go open up the store, we’d find the tail of a flying squirrel on our porch. Occasionally a whole squirrel but mainly just the tails. I guess the cats were eating most of them and leaving the tails for us as a gift...
