"BOUNCE" 'em out!!

I find that distributing the biggest box of "Bounce" sheets (the worst smelling that I can find) in all of the lower cabinets, and around the upholstery does wonders for keeping them out!! I do it every fall. {It keeps me out too! I'll never understand how people can use them in their dryers.}

I just pulled the Safari out of its garage (to house Thanksgiving company) and found the telltale signs: poop and eaten poison pellets. As I was backing up to park I saw one dive out and run for cover in a stone wall. The cats have obviously gotten lazy.

Baits - D-Con

My experience with D-Con is that the mouse(es) eat a dose of it and crawl into some remote part of the trailer and die -- AND STINK FOREVER. Especially on a humid day.

I got rid of a nice '70 Overlander because of this.

One more thing I have seen that worked, is filling the toilet bowl half way with freeze ban (the pink stuff), provided your bowl holds water, and leave the lid up. It is either the sweat smell or they get thirsty one which causes them to drowned their selves. :-)

I've never had that problem. They tend to want water after eating the stuff and they go outside to find it, then croak.

the best way I found to keep mice out, is to use moth balls. Place under the unit on the out side and some not to many because of smell, on the inside.

I put mothballs in my attic to get rid of the squirrels one year. When I was working in the yard the next day, they threw them out the vent at me.
