    mice


    I was at the shop today to get an air filter and some brake fluid for my VFR, and mentioned that i was going to screen my snorkel for mice, cine half of the filter changes involved mouse nests. The sales guy pulled out a $100 flashing light and noise making mouse repellent. Anybody have any experience with these things, good or bad? I already pack the area under the back seat with moth balls after having to rewire part ofthe harness for mouse damage.

    Let your cat (or someone else's cat [or get a cat]) have access to the garage.
    That's why they decided to associate with humans. It's what they were designed for.
    Or if your a dog person, maybe a terrier.

    I am screening it with the next air filter change. This just got me curious since I heard such things do not really work.

    They don't work long term. The animals just get used to it.

    In the garage I would use an antifreeze bucket of doom. In the house I just use water in the bucket.

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.
