A good hunting cat works wonders. No poisons or traps. Tireless. Relentless. Ruthless. Let nature take it's course...sort of.

This recipe works on mice, chipmunks, and voles:

1 gal water
1 onion, chopped fine
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped fine
2 T cayenne pepper

Boil for 20 min. Strain thru cheesecloth. Spray or pour around chipmunk holes and edges of house.


I also spread around the solid stuff that is strained out. I'd put it where their nests are.

So....we eat it after we catch it then? Sounds like a yummy marinade. I may add lime juice.

It truly works - we've been using it for 2 years very successfully.

Thanks for the tips.

We have two cats but they stay in the house. Not too keen on outside cats up here. Sure, they are predators for little rodents and what not, but there are too many predators that think the cat is food.

I may try Mylz's recipe though. Can I add some cilantro to that along with the lime juice so I can marinate some chicken with it before I use it on the Voles.

Mylz...how long do you find that an application of that lasts? How often do you need to do it? And does it make existing populations leave or just deter new ones from entering?

We applied it 3 times last year and this past spring only had to put it down once. It evicts the current population and deters newbies. We didn't get any mice coming in this fall.

Because of the cayenne, do not inhale anymore than you have to - it's potent after having been boiled that long. I'd definitely put the solids in their nests. And the stuff doesn't stain the concrete in the garage.

I like this "brew" because it's not harmful to any living thing - just annoying.

Great, thanks!

I'm going to give this a try and I'll report back on the results.

Once you get the critters out, fill up all the entry holes with that expanding foam. We did that to keep out the mice & it seems to work really well. :hugegrin:

Works on skunks and other varmints as well.
