Thanks so very much for your great information, John. My house is in Kingsport, TN. I'll try out these neat ideas. I've discovered that the house has many holes you don't see, because underground and hard to get to, under the heat pump, around the facia, etc. I've snap-trapped a lot of mice, cage-trapped some chipmunks, and relocated a number of exterior squirrels to 10 miles away, taken away lots of brush and leaves, etc. But I still have these critters in the crawl space and in the attic (and maybe wall cavities ),that don't eat anything I put out. Since there are so many difficult to reach and fix openings and crevices, I's must trying to do inexpensive fixes if possible, for now. I am beginning to give up on fixing some of them because if I close one place off, the critters seen to enlarge openings elsewhere near the roof which could cause rain trouble around the roof. Thanks so much for your help, and I'll try the box ideas, as well as continuing to ready your life-saving forum.
