Well I like the mothball suggestion. I have heard that this works very well, but don't have any first hand knowledge. If I find that mice are getting in I guess I will give it a try. I never heard of bloodmeal.

The other day I was in the grocery store looking in the bagel bins wondering how many mice... I was looking at the black sesame seed bagels. Uff da! I decided not to buy one.

I hope FEMUSE survived his ordeal. Anyone hear?

Also, Rodeo, FYI it's "hantivirus" not "antivirus"...

I believe Femuse is hiding out over at rv.net and the airstream.com message boards.

Someone told us to try putting a bar of soap out in the A/S. Last fall we put bars of Dove down, 1 fore & 1 aft, and, thankfully, had no problems over the winter. It just occured to me we should have some soap in there right now and there isn't.

Dear Sue (Eikel1we),
Followed your suggestion to use the Dove bars, for and aft, and it worked, even though a little 'sticky'. I chose the Dove frozen ice cream bars, double chocolate with the crunchy Heath bar coating, instead of the moisturizing soap bars you suggested.
The little varmints all died from obesity, succumbing to toxic serum levels of LDL. You know,the 'bad' cholesterol.

Now.
Can anyone help me with an ant problem....?

In the Whole add on Ozone they never once mentioned all the Damage Ozone does to your equipment and tha AS itself. Ozone is a major oxidizer( they do tell you that) Ive Had it eat all the gaskets out of expensive camera equipment, Eat my apolstery up so you could polk your finger through it. One of the main ways that the sun destroys so many types of plastic is through the production of Ozone. It was heralded as a mirical cure all back in the 20s and 30s. I guess every generation can be taught by the same trial and error.

I like the reply that suggested mothballs, but where do I find that many male moths?
Would mice prefer the whole moth?

I have found the best way to get rid of ants is to lay down a trail of powdered sugar, and at the end of the trail I put a large pile of baking soda.

Ants (insect family Formicidae) deploy formic acid as a defense mechanism.

The ants rush along the trail of powdered sugar, and when they see the large pile of white powder at the end of the trail, they dive in, thinking it is more sugar. The chemical reaction between the formic acid and the baking soda causes them to exploded into a million pieces.
