    Sonic pest deterrents

    I've had a helluva run of mice in my house lately and have been catching them left and right with the old fashioned traps. I saw several different types of sonic devices that are supposed to keep stuff away from your house. Does anybody have any experience with these things? I like the idea, but don't want to drop $25-50 on something without knowing if it's worth a crap.

    I had a little plug-in one at my old house, and it didn't seem to bother them. It wasn't real expensive (maybe $20), so maybe the more expensive ones work better?

    What I've heard is that they work at first, but then eventually the mice get used to the sound. I had them before with no conclusive results.
