    Its the time of year for freaking rodents to start coming in my shop. I work in a metal building that is surrounded basically by fields...so they just LOVE my shop.

    The problem is I cant work effectively I am literally scared to death of these creatures. I have put out pellets and all kinds of things to kill them once they get in here but I would rather find a way to keep them from coming in PERIOD!!!!

    Any suggestions? I heard peppermint oil could work but havent tried it......anybody....HELP!!!!!

    For some reason I can NEVER see Gino's attachments but most everyone else I can. His attachments are shown as broken links. They appear to be within the body of the message and not a separate attachment like most others'. What is he doing different?

    Using Chrome

    Notice on the attachment and everyone else's it says "attached thumbnails" but yours are within the message. Are you attaching in a different way?

    Remove any clutter from around building. Check and fill all entrance ways that a rodent could gain entry (short of the front door). Place permanent bait stations along edge of building very 50 feet or so and maintain fresh and varied baits. Glue and snap traps inside are good once they get in. That way you can remove the carcass instead of having to track it by smell. Good luck.

    I get the exact same thing in Chrome as well. Although on my Android phone - which I would assume using a variant of Chrome I don't have the problem. Odd.

    Okay, I thought it was just a fluke with Eric.

    My images are all 800 x 800 or less jpeg's. Other than that, I don't know if I'm doing anything wrong. I'm also in Firefox.

    If the administration can help on this, please advise. :thankyou:


    For those not seeing the attachments.... is it all of them or on occasion ??
