Have you heard about so perfect beings as Cats? :)

I plant my most valuable tubers in plastic pots that are used for aquatic culture,
with holes in all the surface. The roots will go through them into the soil,
but no larger animals than rainworms.
They also prevent some invasive plants from spreading.

Subject: [Aroid-l] OT: ultrasonic rodent repellers

Maybe not terribly OT since none of us would like rodentia chewing on
our tubers and plants...  I just did a few thousand dollars of
renovations on my headhouse this summer. Previously the walls and
ceiling were infested with mice, etc making a mess and a stink.  Over
the summer I gutted the entire thing and blocked what I'll
optimistically call all of the rodent-entry places, then re-insulated
and put put up new walls and ceiling.

Naturally, there may be an entry point that I missed or they may create
a new one. I must keep them out of the walls and ceiling!

Has anyone ever used the ultrasonic rodent repellers with objective
evidence that they worked?

I placed one inside the headhouse to try to deter them from coming in
there at all.  I also placed one in the small shed that's built onto the
back of the headhouse where there *used to be* several entry points for
them (hoping they'll stay out of there and not chew new holes).
