    Hello - can anyone tell me if it will harm my monitors if there is a mouse inside? I saw one run into the bass port of my tannoy 601. I turned the music up real loud...he still hasn't come out...picked up the speaker and shook it violently...no dice...any suggestions?

    hehe, thats a good one! If the mouse is still alive , it will come out to eat or get water. Put a trap outside the monitor. Gets some cheese on the trap. Put it right in front of the port. You'll get em.

    Curious, when you shake it, can you feel its still in there? You may have to pull the speaker.

    No, nothing out of the ordinary when shaken....as if I would know....What about a monitor feels "normal" when it is being shaken like a can of paint? Thanks for the advice. That was about where i was at with it. Can the mouse do any damage?

    If you shake it, you'd think the mouse would bounce around enough to feel it in there. maybe its gone. I suppose it could chew wire and stink it up over time. If its in there, you need to get it out. That's about all I can tell you. Mouse traps work great.The Victors work great; The snap type are the best. They cost about $5 for a 3 pack.

    Yes he could potentially do some damage, rodents chew on things. There may also be residual damage from 'droppings', or a stash of food he's found.

    I found evidence one had moved into the back of my JBL bookshelf speakers a couple years ago. He didn't do any permanent damage, but left about a tablespoon of tiny seeds in there.

    Screwdriver to remove woofer, shop-vac to sweep out all the stuff he left behind.
