Fighting them for years. Mice do get use to some offensive smells. They eventually made nests out of the dryer sheets. Mice hate anything "mint" or menthol and never get use to it. I use moth balls in the bays and peppermint oil a few places inside. Always place traps inside with peanut butter, just in case. That also is your key in knowing if they are getting past your defences.
This summer I planted peppermint plants around where I park the MH. Grandma did this years ago around her house and said she got rid of her mouse problem.
The first thing anyone should do is fully inspect the underside, the bays and interior for any opening, even if it's dime size. Then stuff those with steel wool. Mice will not chew through it. I did this 2 years ago, but I must have missed a place or two, but it did help. Have to re-check again.
My experience tells me that no one remedy is going to work. Mice are determined to find a nice place in the fall to spend the winter. So you have to stay on top of them. This year no mice. All 5 traps still set and full of peanut butter.....yay !
