Longarrow,
Is there a link to a product you intended to include? Neighbor with a Class C was asking about an effective preventive against squirrels today... 2nd cousins to mice. What product are you talking about?

I have found the best way is still a good wood trap.

I read in an other thread that bounce dryer sheets will deter mice from macking a home in your RV. At least untill they get used to the smell.

Other wise a motavated Jack Russel sould take care of both mice and squirels

Thats where the Jack Russel comes into play.

Other wise keep the mice and detuct them on your income tax as live stock.

I have 2 Jack Russels, and if there is a mouse anywhere near they go nuts. If I had a mouse in my RV, I don't know if I would turn them loose in there or not. They would dig through anything to get a mouse. They would probably do more damage than the mouse!

Good man, ccook129 has the correct website. It was one of those popup's ad on this site. I HAVE USED PEPPERMINT OIL, with very good results. One thing that works very good for ANTS, is "Terro" hard to find in this part of the country. One thing I CANNOT is ants/mise in my TT!!!!! That's why I'm always looking for something better. Thanks, and "Happy Camping"

best way to keep mice out is to keep the inside of the rv clean.when you park it dont leave food like crackers inside.

Years ago the British were expermenting with RADAR, but every time they brought up the high power microwave RADAR transmitter.. ZZZZZAAAAAPPPPP!!!!!! a mouse had eaten throught the insulation in at least one place and got himself quick fried to a crackly crunch, also blew the transmitter.

They tried traps
They tried poisons
They tried cemical repllents
They tried sonic repellants
Nothing worked.

Finally they installed a Cat.. No more mice

Amber and Alex, my feline roomates are in charge of keeping this place rodent free, And they do great work.

I did a little googling and saw a reference to $10 per foot for application of Mouse Free at RV service centers. The website for Mouse Free mentions it is a concentrate of menthol' and some kind of gummy or sticky coating that mice won't cross.
No mention of how long it lasts, I infer from what little information is mentioned it must be renewed each year.

A gallon of Mouse Free is $99 (with a free sprayer) In addition, it 'will lubricate all moving parts, and keep rubber and plastic from drying out or cracking' so I guess it will save on chassis lubrication The whole underside must be sprayed, service centers raise RV on a lift to treat.

Reminds me of my son-in-law in Australia, he has a dive shop and sprays his boat trailers with caster oil to keep from corroding in the salt water. It works, but when I crawled under a trailer to replace a U bolt, I got slimed! I'd hate to have to work under my RV with Mouse Free on it.

I had to laugh at myself today, after saying that the wood traps work best I went to MH and found two traps sprung and no mice.

Mouse Free

Have been using this product for two years on both the MH and sons TT. It is the best product we have ever used for this purpose. We only spray in areas where there is any possibility of a penetration into the units. You do not have to spray on the full under belly. Works Great
