Unhappy Mice

I'm having trouble with mice getting into my trailer between trips. They must be coming in around plumming behind the cabinets or under the stove. Probably not helping my HVAC either. Anybody had this problem or have a suggestion?

This is a common issue, tons of threads to read. If you have electric at the camper I recommend some of the sonic units you can buy to discourage them. Also, I think keeping the grass down around the unit helps. Good luck.

I've had good luck with mouse traps. Don't use pioson, or they'll die somewhere that you can't get to them, and then they'll smell. The best solution is get them before they reach your camper. I've found the best thing by far is good old fashioned cats. I've got 5 of them and rarely see a mouse any more. 2 in the house, 2 in the shop and 1 outside. This may not be possible if you live in town, but I live on a farm.

I had this problem with my barbecue grill in my backyard. I tried all kinds of rodent bait, but what finally seems to be working is mothballs. I put them in a uncovered plastic container and sit them inside the grill when it's not in use. Of course, when I use the grill, I remove the container. Have not had a problem since.
