Mice - Eeek....

Just parked our Airstream out at our Farm for the winter and have been enjoying it on weekends... We just discovered we are not the only ones. Mice have gotten in and had a toilet paper party. We are not leaving any food and everything is closed up tight... Any help or advice would be much appreciated!!

Poison bait blocks outside the trailer work for me.

Mice have soft skulls and can get through less than 1/4" gaps - next to impossible to plug all in TV or RV - gave up several years ago!
Now go with poisoning them - has worked great, not perfect but way much less of a problem than before.
De-Con makes a little plastic trap that the poison blocks go in so pets and kids can't get to it - works great. Mice seem to eat it and go away, haven't seen their dead bodies as I expected. No more toilet paper nests!

Bucket of water works well also maybe a paint stick leading to the edge.

Google "redneck mouse trap bucket" for a slick, simple mousetrap system.

Yes, it works well.
