. . . especially as spring continues and the critters are coming out! Helpful to know that all the anecdotal evidence and testimonials about different "cures" do not have yet have laboratory-proven results.
BTW, I do use the Bokashi method of fermenting all my kitchen scraps, and when I bury the contents of my bokashi-bucket in my compost-bins over the winter, hungry voles do come by for a snack. The "pickling" of the scraps doesn't seem to deter them. I find their tunnels into the bins and occasionally, a dark little rodent jumps out when I take the lid off the bin to add materials. I don't know who actually jumps further! ;-) When spring arrives, the voles go back to eating plants in my garden.

Before my husband blows up our yard I told him to try the sonic things I have seen that make some noise we cant hear but will drive pests out of the yard. Has anyone tried that or are they total scams? I did plug in a couple of sonic mouse deterrents in our garage and so far have not seen any evidence of mice...much to the disappoint of my house cat.

I hope some other readers can report back, but all I can say is that my research did not find them recommended by universities.
