I just put the bounce sheets in last night. Probably put 20 here and there. Went out today to organize a few cabinets and holy smells batman, the odor form the bounce sheets was so strong it brought tears to my eyes. I now see why they work. Going to wait a couple days on organizing the cabinets to let the smell dissipate a bit.

I have power available in my storage barn. Keep a trickle charger on the batteries. Have often wondered if those electronic mice away transmitters work. Would love to take one into a pet store and just see it it really effects them.
We also filled the camper with Bounce sheets and was told that worked. Placed probably 20 of them all over the place.
I was in our RV over the weekend and saw signs of mice (a few black specs here and there) we made sure all food was removed and they still came in. Had some napkins in one cabinet they chewed on and left little paper shreddings. Didnt look as though anything else was damaged thank god. Cushions and fabrics all look good.

I was told never place mice traps inside the Rv as the peanut butter draws them inside. So even if you catch one the food is still there to intice other inside. I know the moth balls work but man that smell can take weeks to dissapate.

So I was thinking maybe the mice away products for inside and then some alluminum pans with mothballs for under the rig near the tires to hopefully just keep them away.

After finding signs of mice in early Feb. with bounce sheets in all drawers and on the furniture, I bought Fresh Cab, The electric sonic deal and 6 mouse traps. So far we have caught 7 in the traps. So much for the Bounce, Fresh Cab and electric sonic deal. LOL

So I was at Lowes the other day and they have a product called rid rodent I think.
Directions were to just spray it on walls and floors and it deters mice. But I opened the bottle and it smelled so pungent that I kept smelling it hours later. It lingered in my nose I guess.. I didnt buy it.

Will I found my first mouse of the year. I keep two traps set all the time. I like peanut butter it seem the mice do too. I have tried electronics to scare birds away, it did not work.

What brand and where did you buy the repeller that you used? I purchased one at HomeDepot and took it apart but can't figure out where it would step down in voltage, it's a Victor Sonic PestChaser. I also have a few ForceField that I got form Costco but I haven't taken one of those apart yet.
Do you think a 9v battery would power it?
Thanks

I put the white plastic poison traps in mine and don't have any in sight.
Funny story;While I was getting the new roof on the MH.I asked if they could check out why my front furnace wasn't always coming on. They pulled the cover off the outside and we found mouse droppings. Later the service mgr called and said that they had found more evidence of the little critters as some of the wiringf on the circuit board was chewed and there was stuff in the burner tube. And Oh,by the way,the first tech was refusing to work on the furnace 'cuz he found two "toasted" mice back by the vent tubes.
