How can I keep mice, and rats away from my Computer cords?

I was thinking of coating tye cords un vinegar, but I don't know if that would even work. Or if the vinegar would harm the cords. If vinegar would work or if you know a better alternative please post.

    Make a slurry of cooking oil, cayenne and powdered cloves and paint it either on the cords or in the direct area.

    Sprinkle chili powder on things you do not want rodents knawing.

    Better yet, plug the holes the rodents are using to gain entry into your house.

    There is more to care about other than your computer cords.

    RODENTS CARRY DISEASES. When you are asleep, they walk all over your keyboard and kitchen surfaces....ewwwww.

    Don't even TRY. You need to get rid of the rodents in you home, not keep them away from specific cords.

    Coat them in peppermint oil from time to time. Mice hate that.

    But you should try to get rid of the problem rather than treat the symptom.

    I recommend a humane box catcher - you can catch a load at one go if you are lucky - or good old fashioned 'little nippers' if you don't want to use poison or glue traps
