Put peanut butter on opposite sides of the can...get a ramp. The mouse will go up the ramp, onto the can for the food, the can will spin and he will fall in the water eventually drowning. When you wake up in the morning, throw the mouse out with the bath water, so to speak. I used this method in my tt and it took one night to get rid of him. Best mouse trap ever!

i have chickens and i have tried this near my feed and pens and never got even one, glad to hear yours worked.

Why would a mouse try and work for meal rather than going into the feed which is an easy meal? They already know where their gravy train is so why search for any other source of food?

The bucket works provided it is the sole source of food. I put one in my rig during storage. I have never caught one but I have never had a mouse problem either.

Why? Because I also put one outside my rig in the storage facility. I clean it out monthly and there are usually 3 or 4 in there although on one occasion there were 10!

Trust me when I say it works like a champ!

Try fresh cab. It comes in packets and I set them in the wet bay, electrical, battery, underneath the slides were the cable runs are and tuck it in the cables where they go into the drivers are above the gen. Also in storage bays. Haven't had a mouse since. Leave them there, even if using the mh. Replace every month or so.

I was sitting on the porcelain throne one evening a few weeks ago and caught a glimpse of mickey running from the pantry to the frig. Went and bought a 4-pack of Victor traps at the local hdwe store. Next morning, dead mouse. Next step is to buy the Fresh Cab and place throughout the basement. I really doubt one can completely seal the underside of the M/H from any possible entrance points. When you sleep with dogs, you get fleas.

It's a bunch of natural stuff. I can list it if you need but I will tell you we had an issue of them getting in under the Jacuzzis in our stick built until I started putting this under it. No more.
