Default Do sonic pest repellers work on squirrels?

I have a squirrel that just hijacked my garage by living in the walls. I was thinking about poison, but don't want rotting squirrel stink and juice emanating from the walls. So I was wondering if OT has successfully used sonic pest repellers on rodents. Thought about traps, but would rather go this route first.

dude, I had just had the same problem and considered the sonic repellers, but then I solved it very very effectively using nothing but an AK47


you could also try the annoyatron - if squirrels can hear it will drive them nutz

No one repels a squirrel like Clark W. Griswold.

Well, I used some expanding foam spray coated and mixed with habanero sauce on the hole, but it looks I have a Mexican squirrel, since it still chewed through.

I think the random xenon flash works better than the ultrasonics. But still they probably just get accustomed to it.

If you can indentify the entrance, you can fashion a one-way rabbit wire door
(sorta how they clear bats from an attic) and then place poison peanuts/w'ever such that they won't be able to re-enter and die.

Do not let your dog find and eat a poisoned rodent carcass!

Benelli carries a full line of sonic pest repellers. I have the one at the top... It repels pests very well.

rat traps with peanut butter, shop vacs and duct tape, and drowning in toilets.

repellants DO NOT work.

search posts from SSNH or he'll be nice enough to tell the whole story with pics.

I hope you mean like the one that drown in the toilet (Damn thing splashed around for a full day and a half!)? Cause the one that was shop vac'ed lived even after he thumped off the back wall of the tank.

My father-in-law got suckered into buying a sonic repeller which he uses to keep deer out of his garden. It doesn't work on the deer, but every time I stand near it I get an agitated uptight feeling and if I'm near it long enough I get a headache. I think it may cause brain cancer.
