    Q
    Can the Bonide Molemax Sonic Spike be used within 10 feet of a building, and if so, does it drive the rodents into a building?
    I live in a corner of a V and have roads close to house and don't want to drive chipmunks or rodents into the house, so I want to know can they be placed like 3' away?
    A

You may place the spikes closer to the structure if needed, but the spikes will not get to determine which direction the animals run.
