I saw this ad and read the comments. I also read many reports on tests that have been done. The reports are quite negative, these things are not good value to put it mildly. If they work for you, great. However, when putting in my own comment as here.

"I will accept the advice of the independent reports and scientific opinion and not risk my money."
The message came back "server busy". Is it possible they only accept positive comments? There is so much trickery on this internet it's beyond a joke. As far as mice go, the old fashioned mouse trap and a bit of cheese works wonders. Alternatively a not overfed cat will help, :-))

We’ve just begun sourcing the house, so this probably wouldn’t happen for several months at least. Dimensions would probably be 8 metres long by 3 metres wide, with room for a small deck. Unit would be mostly self-contained (solar power, composting toilet, etc), but access to water would be helpful. We’d be interested in a lease of at least one year.

The Government has announced that New Zealand will be moving to Alert Level 2 on Thursday 14 May 2020.
This means public transport timetables have returned to normal for buses, trains and most ferries. The Ministry of Health wants passengers to still maintain physical distancing so we will need to limit the number of people who can board each bus, train, or ferry. This will reduce the number of passengers on each service. To make up for reduced capacity, we’ve called in some reinforcements; you might find yourself travelling on a bus normally used by sightseers or tourists. These extra buses will help get everyone where they need to be, quickly and safely.
When you’re on board, follow the signs showing where you can sit, and please avoid sitting next to someone you don’t know.
Registered HOP cards only
======================
Under Alert Level 2, regular fares apply. Please note that bus drivers won’t accept cash. Instead, you’ll need to use a registered AT HOP card to tag on and off. You need to make sure your AT HOP card is registered - this makes contact tracing easy if needed.
Cleaning our fleet
==============
The safety of our customers and workers is a priority, so we’re making sure all public transport is cleaned regularly. We’ve also stepped up our regime to include spot checks and antimicrobial cleaning. You’ll find hand sanitiser stations at many locations, and we encourage you to use them.
When travelling on buses
====================
• Cash payments for fares will not be accepted. You must use an AT HOP card.
• Use the rear door to get on and off buses.
• Tag on and off using the AT HOP card reader inside the rear door.
• If you use a wheelchair or mobility device, are vision-impaired or require driver assistance, you can still get on and off using the front door.
• Each bus will have a sign showing the number of passengers it can carry.
School buses
===========
AT school bus services will operate during Alert Level 2. Following the Government’s guidelines, physical distancing measures will be different from our public transport services but standing on buses will not be permitted. Working closely with the schools, AT have several measures to support contact tracing for students. Hand sanitiser will be made available for students boarding and departing the bus, in addition to the bus being cleaned in accordance with Government guidance. We recommend that parents wait with their child(ren) at the bus stop until they can see if the bus has enough room for their child(ren).

NZ POST--Kiwis really have been shopping up a storm, and we received the highest number of domestic parcels last week than in any other week in NZ Post’s history. To put this into perspective, we’re receiving on average over 200 parcels every minute.

Brian from New Lynn

Combined with physical distancing, this means things are a little slower right now and it is taking longer to get your parcels to you. Most of our parcels are being delivered within two to three working days but in some cases, we are seeing delays of up to five working days (and a little longer with some international parcels). While we’ll continue to pull out all the stops to get your parcels to you as quickly as possible, we expect this volume to continue over the coming weeks, so there will be ongoing delays. We know that the parcels you’re waiting for are important to you. Our expanded contact centre teams are working overtime and doing everything they can to answer your queries as quickly as possible. Please help us out by checking our FAQs first if you have any questions and only call us if your parcel has been delayed longer than five working days. Rest assured that while there may be a delay, we will get your parcel to you as soon as we possibly can.
Here are just some of the things we’re doing to make sure Kiwis get their parcels:
=========================================================
***11 sites across the country processing 24/7
***All possible warehouses across the country sorting and processing
***Approximately 200 extra vehicles
***Parcels delivered 7 days a week
***An additional 3,000 containers to transport parcels around the country
***Teams delivering hundreds of thousands of parcels some days
