Have a good link for one of these? I need something for the rock squirrels that have been undermining my house. I haven't had much luck trapping and they just keep mining away. Can't gas them out because it's under the house; I'd do that with an outbuilding. Any and all suggestions gratefully accepted. Wife and city say I can't use my Glock Mod 45.
How about dry ice on/in the burrows. Carbon dioxide settles and they are already buried.

What about sonic repellers? I used one under my carport after the squirrels ate the main wiring harness in my 6 month old Jeep. Seemed to work, but I didn't have the burrowing type.

Thanks, I've been thinking about that concept. I have one that I used after I found a rat family nesting in my gas grill that has prevented further invasions. I'll set that into one of the openings and see if it causes the desired reaction. What I don't know is how much the dirt walls and bends in their tunnels may attenuate the signal. Worth a try.

A couple of good cats or a Miniature Dachshund will fix this problem. We have a couple of outside cats and never have any problems with mice, lizards, moles or squirrels. Or any other critter they can get to.

I've got so many field mice & rats, that I'd have to have a heard of cats. I've gone through about 9lbs of rat bait in two weeks. I can't have the cats because if the cat eats a poisoned rat . . . . .
