Avoidance of bird repellents by mice (Mus musculus)



Avoidance of bird repellents by mice (Mus musculus)



Journal of Chemical Ecology 19(3): 427-432



It is believed that mammalian chemosensory irritants are not aversive to birds and vice versa. Nevertheless, few avian repellents have been tested against mammals. For that reason, the efficacy of 1.0% w/v methyl anthranilate, orthoaminoacetophenone, 2-amino-4',5'-methoxyacetophenone, 2-methoxyacetophenone and veratryl amine were evaluated as mouse repellents in 3-h no-choice drinking tests. Relative to ingestion of plain water, all test substances significantly reduced (P<0.05) intake.
