Mice control.  Noise, heat and fan wind scares them off. 
Recommended setup: 4 BFL singles in each corner of your basement.

i'm sure the steady lights on the eruptors will scare the shit out of would be robbers. Set the sticks power connected to a sound detection device and turn them on and you'll see the robbers running as fast as they can  Grin

Now that I got my Avalon mini up and running, I think I found another use. You could strap a couple of these on an airplane and take off. They really throw out some air. In addition, while the chips are probably no good, there are a few things salvageable on it, like the PSU. I'm sure the aluminum case could be repurposed somehow. And the WR703N could be turned into a PirateBox. Worst comes to worst, they will be worth significantly less, but not absolutely worthless.
