Bought this product a month ago. Paid $37.22 inc. shipping & handling. After a few weeks I still noticed droppings from mice. Bought sticky paper put a small container of peanut butter, caught 2 mice. Haven't had any action on the peanut butter since. That only cost $1.97

Very disappointed on this product.

Would appreciate your come back. Mel [email protected]

I had a friend who was bitten by a tic several years ago. She ended up with Lyme disease, which put her in a wheelchair for a while. Fortunately, she did recuperate from the ordeal.

Flies are filthy. I saw a fly land on someone's food one time, and somebody else made a comment about it, and their response was "Oh well, he won't eat very much." My thought was, why would you want to eat something that a fly has lit on? For all that person knew, the fly had just come from a steaming pile of dungola.

Rats have managed to evolve right along side human civilization, thriving mainly because of us. They are smarter than most pets, quick to learn and easy to train. Rats even know when they don't know something* (which makes them smarter than most people IMO). In fact, rats share many similarities with us. Their social structure, physiology and apparent ability to reason are all traits that we share. Hell, we even eat the same foods and share the same environments. We share similar organs, similar body plans, We both control our body chemistry using similar hormones, we both have nervous systems that work in the same way, and we both react similarly to infection and injury. One of the reasons that scientists perform psychological and medicinal tests on rats is because, as a species we are both so similar. These similarities also bring the ethics of animal testing to greater light.
They do carry many zoonotic diseases and the fleas on them did cause some devastating plagues a few hundred years ago. Thusly, if you see one in the wild-stay the hell away from it. It can carry diseases that will fuck you up.
I rated rats a one because, I honestly don't mind them and I have a lot of respect for animals with higher intelligence. But they are pests and because they are largely dependant on us, they can cause a lot of problems for the unprepared. Specially bred pet ones can make great pets for the right people though.

In New York, you are three times more likely to get bit by a person than by a rat. A statistic that makes me think that rats are more tame. Just wanted to throw that out there.

I bought this product through a readers digest promo two years ago. It was the SB-104 model and it worked really well!

I used it in the apartment building we lived in when I saw a roach. There were units around me that had serious roach problems and I only ever saw one or two a month. Still gross, but better than infestation.

When we moved into a house last year we had a problem with mice. The house was really old, had lots of holes and places for rodents to get in (which is why we don't live there anymore!!) but it worked there as well. I had two of them. One plugged in the basement and one in the kitchen. We saw maybe one mouse after that, but they certainly didn't multiply. And considering all the holes, that's pretty good!

I don't know about spiders (or any other bugs), but we were never really bothered by them.

I've always been curious about these Riddex "sonic" traps I've seen on the tv. So naturally I decided to splurge some money on it. Setting it up was a breeze. However, it hardly worked at all. It definitely did not keep the roaches away. I did notice that the mice did not stay anymore so I guess it keeps mice away. However I already had traps set up in all rooms so it was no big deal for me. The roaches are more of my problem, not even boric acid will get rid of these resilient guys. Also, the device does in fact make audible noise often. I got sick of it and threw it away.
