Just a thought..........

I kept finding my mouse traps, unsprung without peanut butter.
I am thinking that the ants ate the peanut butter. A few years ago I closed up the trailer , not knowing that a stray cat was inside. A week
later when I opened up the trailer, I found mice fetus around the trailer and cat droppings. I think I would rather have a mouse pooh in my trailer that have a cat pooh in my trailer. I am thinking of trying a controlled
cat based deterent.( Two cats, 24 hours, a litter box, and water bowl )
Dryer sheets, pepermint oil and Irish spring sound like a good option
for when the cats are on vacation.Thanks for the info Dave

Animal cruelty!

Boy, some of the creative ideas on this thread amount to animal cruelty. Hope PETA doesn't have bots searching for this kind of thing on the internet--hate to have them picketing outside our Airstreams. . .

All last winter I used the sticky pads (---furnished by my home pest control service), placing at least 6 or 7 of them around the inside of the trailer, plus I used two commercial sticky pad mousetraps. The latter are nothing more than sticky pads in a box. The net result was not a single mouse, spider, or other undesirable critter. I also had an electronic pest control device in service - but it was only active when I had the trailer plugged in to recharge the house batteries. Unfortunately, somewhere on our last trip to the Maritimes (Nova Scotia & Cape Breton) we picked up another passenger. He may have jumped ship since our return home but I'm keeping the electronic device in service until I know for sure - or until I can replace the sticky pads. The gist of the story is that campgrounds are prime breeding spots for the little critters and they're dedicated Hitchhikers!
