    If he lives in the northeast i wouldnt drive it either. I had my car in the garage for about 3 years solid working on it. Was a constant battle with mice and rats. (There was a farm next door.) Found a nest of mice under my rear seat. D-con and moth balls took care of that. When i finally got around to starting it I had dog food shooting out my exhaust!!

    Exactly how did you arrive at that conclusion? Do you have the research to back up this claim? How many mice were harmed in the course of your testing? Was it a double blind, or triple blind study? Was any counseling offered to the mice who lost family members in the "un-protected" exhaust system?

    Does your product come with a guarantee? What will I get if it doesn't work? How many years of field research do you have to back up your claim? Can you offer any un-solicited testimonials from your satisfied customers? Is your company listed on the Dow or NASDAC? and if so, what symbol?

    I seriously doubt you can offer any answers to the above questions. Indeed I believe the "logic" you used to arrive at your claim of "These things work" is basically akin to this kind of logic:

    1. Place banana in ear.
    2. Observe that there are no alligators around.
    3. Conclude that a banana placed in ear keeps alligators away.

    Bananas DO keep alligators away. It's true!! I have bananas on my counter at home. NO alligators in three years!

    I've seen guys use expandable brass freeze plugs on cars with smaller exhaust if they're storing their car for long periods of time. Let's see Mickey and Minnie chew through brass! Foam, on the other hand, is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Mice would just chew chunks off of that and make a nice, comfy bed out of it.

    What works on another board for posting spam does not work real well here obviously.

    I have seen this very product posted on another site in less than 24 hours.

    Nice..
    but not for mice...
    foam and mice?
    no dice for mice and spam
    I'll take my green eggs and ham.

    Popcorn anyone? Salt? Drinks? Anything while I am up?.

    those plugs would be better suited for barny frank
     
  16. Mouse traps work good for me. I have more trouble with chipmunks & ground squirrels than mice. Those rodents are really destructive (destroyed the wiring and seat covers on 2 snowmobiles) and I still haven't found a good way to get rid of them. Traps, Dcon, sticky tape/paper.... seems for every one I catch, 2 or 3 more take its place.
