Is the decon stuff a poison? If so, It sounds like it's working. After a rat 
eats the bait they get sick and seek out water. That may explain why your 
neighbor is finding dead ones in his pond. Ultrasonic noise generators don't 
seem to work very well in repelling rodents. In addition, the sound 
propagates like light due to the short wavelength and therefore is 
ineffective any where the roddent would be in the shade of a light mounted 
in the same place as the ultrasonic noise generator.

        I'm getting ready to install the new carpeting into my 'B, but it
will sit in
a garage with a rodent problem.  My father and I have been putting out a
fresh tray of
D-Con since I've been home with no real success.  As an odd aside, my
neighbor has
fished 38 dead rodents of all kinds out of his pond in the past few
the little suckers have eaten my old seats apart and I found two dead mice
trapped in
the cylinder bores of a headless engine.  What can I put in my car to keep
them from
nesting in my wiring or eating my new carpet?  It's obvious that the D-Con 
pointless, since more animals come into the garage to take their dead
comrades place.
 What about mothballs?  Cedar?  Electronic pest repellers?
        Thanks in advance, however, cats are out of the question...8-(
