Fresh Cab, Peppermint Oil and Traps?

This is getting very annoying. We have had mice 3 times recently. Always seems to come in at the compartment by the black and grey tank outlets.

The only thing that seems to work is traps. We have Fresh Cab and peppermint oil..guess we just need to refresh at least every 30 days or less and see if that works. Looks like I will have to keep a calendar on refreshing.

We have fulltimed for 2 1/2 yrs. We have had 1 or 2 but this is getting to be every week. OK I am thru whining!

Try the triangular shaped plastic boxes that hold bait. They've worked pretty well for me.

Oohh, don't use bait! If they crawl up into an enclosed space where you can't reach without tearing apart, they will stink until they rot & dry out!! Dave

I've used Fresh Cab and a pair of ultra-sonic rodent repellers for winter storage. NO mice in 3 years. Also keep them plugged in during the Summer but the power is only turned on a few days before trips.
Don't know how well they will work while the rig is inhabited with a food supply available.

Fresh Cab works for me, for the last four years; and my wife is screamingly terrified of mice.
