Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
In the movies, mice are adorable -- everyone loves the singing trio in Babe and the bitty dressmakers in Cinderella. But in the home, mice are repugnant. They scratch inside the walls; they nibble at dry foods in the cupboard; they leave toxic droppings. Mice may be small and cute, but they cause big problems.

Bill Adler Jr.’s Outwitting Mice solves these problems. It’s the complete guide to rodent removal: Adler describes each type of rodent, from deer mice to spring hares; then, he answers everyone’s questions about elimination. Do sonic repellents work? Where do glue traps function best? How can you rid your garden of moles? “It takes a long time for most people to get to the point where they are masterminding the demise of certain pests,” Adler explains. “But once you get to that point you have to make sure you are fully prepared, that you are up to the challenge.” With this handy volume, readers will have all the information they need to keep rodents at bay. If you want to end the battle against mice -- or make sure it never begins -- this book will provide you with the tools you need. Happy hunting! (Jesse Gale)

From The Critics
It's easy to know when mice have invaded a home, and hard to get rid of them - but this provides some step-by-step solutions for any struggling with rodents. From choosing commercial deterrents which work to sealing a house against infestation and handling problems in apartment buildings, Outwitting Mice provides many useful suggestions.
