Ask the PeeMan: Mice in Grill

Well, it must be the busy season around here because Wednesday’s Ask the PeeMan is on Thursday this week! This week’s question is especially relevant since grilling season will soon be upon us(I am sure most of you have been grilling for a while now – don’t rub it in) – one thing is for certain – none of us want mice up in our grill(because of my 22 year old daughter the double meaning is not lost on me). . .

Hi,
Looking for a suggestion to keep mice from entering my outdoor grill.  I don’t  have them in the house, but know they are outside as I’ve caught a few over the past year.  Looks like you recommend the Bobcat Urine.  Should I go with the 33 Day Dispenser and put them around the grill area on my patio?  These 33 Day Dispensers are reusable, right?  Or would you recommend some other application?

Thanks for your help.

Kevin,
Look at our BobcatPeeShots – you can place right in grill when not in use and easily remove. here is the link:

Ask the PeeMan- Rodent Control

It’s Wednesday again and time for our weekly “Ask The PeeMan” segment. Rodents seem to be coming up a lot this time of year. The PeeMan has the answer.

Q.  Good afternoon!
I have a question regarding the Coyote PeeShots . I’m looking at them for a basement style room with a large sliding door that opens onto a driveway. It’s a fairly busy beach area, and we have rats! Our organization works with children, so this is a no go! The description says that they are “long-lasting,” and I’m wondering how long that typically is. Please let me know what the average length of use is.

Thank you!
Best,
Caroline

A.  Caroline,
At least a month. 2 months or more if there isn’t much air circulation in the placement area – like under a sink.

Q.  I came across your site through a company called “Solutions”. I have had an issue with having mice enter my house over the past 2-4 years. I am not sure of their entry point BUT I really would like to deter them from entering at all !!!

My house is small, 984 sq. feet….. full basement below, attached garage with door leading to back patio. I am wondering how much of the bobcat or coyote urine I would need to protect my home throughout the winter season. Also, where should I place the deterrents? I do have dogs in the home, so I am also wondering what their response will be to this product.

Thank you
Kristine

A.  Kristine,
Thank you for contacting the PeeMan. If you have mice already in your home, use our Bobcat PeeShots  for indoor use.
Mice usually enter near openings like where wires and pipes come in, or under garage doors etc. Use the Bobcat Trigger spray bottle and squirt around any areas like that. Dogs will just be curious nothing more. See all the bobcat products for mice at this link:

How to Prevent Rodents from Chewing Car Wires

Well, the January thaw is in full swing around here with rain and snowmelt continuing. Next week it looks as if old man winter will mount a comeback, but for now I am enjoying not worrying about frozen pipes or ice dams. While it might not be below zero outside, it is still cold enough for rodents to want to come in from outside. An easy to access dry, warm place can be under the hood of your car. We hear from our customers about this problem all the time and we are trying to get the word out . . . 100% PredatorPee PeeShots are the convenient, effective answer to this annoying problem.

On of our customers emailed the following suggestion –

“Someone should tell the NPR ‘Car talk” guys about this, they are always getting calls about cars damaged from rodents, or rodents dying in cars……Christina”

Also, in case you doubt how much of a problem this can be, I found the article below on the website of Sweeney’s Garage –

Rodent Damage = Expensive Repair
Cold this winter? You’re not the only one!

You might be surprised to learn that during these winter months you may have some furry little visitors living under your hood. The warm dark recesses of your car’s engine compartment is an ideal nesting area for rodents. Mice can and will chew through the wiring under your hood leaving you with an expensive repair bill.

One customer complained of a check engine light and a rough running engine. Upon investigation we found a mouse had chewed through the wiring for his fuel injectors.

Another mouse got into a blower motor where he expired. Every time the heater fan was turned on, it made a loud vibration noise. Some signs you might want to look for under your hood include deposits of bird seed, nests made of string, twigs, insulation, fabric and what looks like dryer lint, or funny noises when you turn on your heater.

 

Our PeeShots are perfect for this application. They come in an 8 pack and are “Pee-Loaded” with 100% Original PredatorPee. Remove the lids and place the PeeShots near each tire and in engine compartment or other target areas in the vehicle. Remove before driving. Choose BobcatPeeShots for mice, CoyotePeeShots for rats and ‘coons, FoxPeeShots for squirrels, and WolfPeeShots for domestic and feral cats.

Help us get the word out – call Click and Clack – tell your friends, tell your neighbors – don’t let this happen to them or you.

That reminds me, I should go stick some in the Scout, the boat and the tractor since I startled a fieldmouse a couple of months ago who had made a home in my headlight!

All Natural, Safe Rodent Control – 100% PredatorPee

Hello All! Well, the snowbanks around here are almost as tall as I am, and the mercury is struggling to creep above zero. If I were a rat, mouse, mole or vole, I would certainly want to be anywhere INSIDE! It appears Maine rodents aren’t alone in that – the excerpts below from recent articles highlight problems with vermin from the west coast to across the pond.

Seattle, WA — (SBWIRE) — 12/18/2013 — Pest problems are not just limited to the elimination of the pest, people have to understand that pests such as rodents and mice do a lot more damage than just being a nuisance, rats and mice are notorious for the germs and diseases they spread. Additionally, these pests can also cause structural damage to a house, especially in the attics and crawlspaces. Thus, it is essential that not only the pests are taken care of but proper measures are taken to deal with the damage they might have done to a structure. http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/attic-crawl-space-cleaning-nuisance-rodent-rats-mice-removal-414053.htm

Pest controllers have warned that Britain’s sizzling summer caused a huge increase in the number of rats and mice near our homes. The warmest, driest summer since 2006 helped Britain’s rats and mice reproduce in big numbers, according to Rentokil. And with temperatures set to plummet this month, they’ve warned homeowners that these rodents will now be seeking shelter indoors. The summer of 2013 saw lower rainfall than previous years and less flooding, allowing rodents to stay in their burrows longer and have undisturbed periods where populations grew. They now expect rats and mice to cause problems in Britain’s homes after their numbers grew ‘exponentially’. Female house mice can give birth to litters of up to 14 young, as many as ten times a year. David Cross. Head of Technical Training Academy at Rentokil UK, said: ‘Rodents like warmth, quiet and a source of food and as the first cold-snap is set to hit, it is worth following a few simple steps to avoid attracting rodents into your home.’http://uk.news.yahoo.com/pest-control-rats-mice-rodent-infestation-problem-vermin-rentokil-uk-123605184.html#FLdr6o4

Add to this that the EPA and other groups are growing increasingly opposed to the use of traditional rodenticides, and things are looking good for rodents and bad for home owners. Thankfully, we have a safe, all natural solution for your winter vermin problems – 100% PredatorPee! Our satisfied customers have used both our 100% CoyotePee and 100% BobcatPee successfully and safely for years.

But, don’t just take my word for it . . .

PeeMan’s Gotta Have Hobbies – Happy Birthday

Well, it may be a little early, but when you reach a certain age, it is ok to celebrate your birthday when and how you like. So I did. With the Airstream refurbish completed, I have been itching for a new project to dive into. So, without further ado . . .Happy Birthday to me! scoutIsn’t she a beauty! 1967 International Harvester Scout 800. These innovative and stylin’ vehicles were the precursor to the now ubiquitous SUV. Now, if you are wondering(as one of my daughters did)how a man of six feet seven inches is going to squeeze into this vehicle – don’t fret – the top comes off!  That’s right! Not only does this classic work as plow and truck, it also doubles as a stylish convertible. A convertible truck – it doesn’t get any better! Well, actually, I am hoping that I can make it look better with a little TLC.  To give you a visual, I “scouted” the internet for some pictures of what the future could hold. . .1964scout
