Let me set this situation up for you.
I was getting ready for my training lesson this morning at the gym (530am) and i'm trying to be super quiet because Maria is still sleeping. All of a sudden i hear this scratching/grunting/hissing sound. What the french toast?! I'm thinking it's Tobi scratching on the door of his hallway wanting to get out because he's heard me. Oh crap, i thought, i can't let him out yet he will wake up maria with his meowing when i leave. I quietly walk down the hallway and pause in the the small hallway that leads into the Den. We've had issues before with some animal being in the wall, so i thought maybe that was what was going on again. *shhhhheeekkkkkkk* and then a few scratching noises, let's just say at this point i flipped on the light and started tapping on the AC unit cover. I wanted to scare those little animals out of the crawlspace of my home. UGH.
Have you ever had this issue?!
How did you solve it?
Because honestly, i don't want these as house guests.
It makes my skin crawl just thinking about it.
Needless to say my brother will be coming back next week, and hey...maybe i can bribe him to crawl under the house?! If he's not up for it (shooooooot i wouldn't be), then we've got to find how these critters are coming into the walls/crawl space. It is not ok, and i do NOT like it.

I decided to do my own research on Google; because you know just as well as i do that we always go to Google when we have a question.
What is this minecraft business? I'm guessing it's a game...but spawning? Really...come on.

I stumbled upon this little beauty when searching through Yahoo answers.
Is there really a device that will do this!? If you know if it, leave a comment, otherwise i'm going to hit up Lowes/Home Depot and ask around.
I also happened to come across a website that gave 8 different steps you could try out and see if it would get rid of the rodents. While reading through the article i learned some very interesting techniques that i've never heard of. I did know about making a lot of noise/having light because that will scare anything away that is trying to hide; but otherwise this was a pretty good learning experience for myself.
Here is the list:

I guess this is what happens when you neglect your landscaping and backyard; you don't look for any holes or entrances that animals can use as their front door. Oh boo.

Has this ever happened to you? How did you address the issue? Do you get creeped out when you think of rodents crawling through your walls as well?
