squirrels in the attic -- strobe


Hello All

I've found products for rodent control using strobe lights:
http://www.evictorproducts.com/
http://www.rodentstrobe.com/

...I'm not ready to invest that much money into a solution that I'm not sold on.

Has anyone used these products? Has anyone used alternatives (thinking cheaper strobe light from radio shack)

How about experimenting with one of the inexpensive battery powered Search and Rescue strobes first, for example:

Interesting idea. Don't know if it will work or not, but be aware that a flashing strobe light in the attic will probably show thru vents, exhaust fans, soffit/gable cracks and crevices, etc. You will attract attention from neighbors and possibly 1st responders,and (exorcism priests?!).

...a good way to see if you have nosey neighbors!


This is actually an enclosed space above an addition. This is a new home, I haven't found an access panel, I'll probably have to cut one.

Wish it lasted longer than 3~7 hours. ...maybe I can get creative with a power pack from radioshack and a soldering iron.

Thanks!
