A man in Changsha, capital of Hunan Province, says he's found the best way to prevent mice from invading his house, Xiaoxiang Morning Post reported.
Wang Tiecheng recorded the blood-curdling screams of rodents and often plays the tape at home.
Wang said it appears to be effective because he's seen few mice ever since he started to play the recording.
Wang said he learned about the method from a TV program. Wang has tried poisons and traps but has never caught a mouse.
