<VV> vermin in Corvair engines

In Home Depot, Lowes and even ACE Hardware there is a electronic devise that
emits a high pitch at a cost of something like $30.00. It can be set to
deter insect with settings  up to small rodents. I had a squirrel problem in
the barn where I store my cars and this solved the problem. I just switch it
on when I am not there as the pitch that emits is very high pitched and
annoying. If you have a dog or cat this may be a problem.  This is a humane
solution and very effective.

I tried that, but couldn't get them to eat it (as far as I was able to
discern.) The best thing for getting rid of mice, short of a good mouser
cat, is a stick-down trap. They come in both open-pan and enclosed box
types, and work like a charm. I've even managed to catch two in one trap.
For outside varmits, like chipmunks, I have also used a reusable plastic
spring/jaws type trap. Both may "require" you to give the trapped varmits a
bath in a bucket of water, as a humane way of relieving any suffering.

I still like a good cat, though. They're great pets, as long as you
remember that they are cats and not dogs.
