At the very bottom, there is an Operational Manual(#5) that says you can do it yourself with a low pressure spray gun.

Spoke with RV dealer near me that is listed on Mouse Free site. They charge $10.00 per foot, so my coach $350.00. They said they need to put up on lift to do as required by Mouse Free. Mouse Free said should do every 12 months. Haven't had mouse problems yet I think. We store coach in a grass lot near tree fields.

Scary. My thoughts exactly. We had a little guy in our cedar fire wood pile this year. When I disturbed him , he got inside and ate DW's chocolate. A little peanut butter and a small trap took care of it in just a few hours. Moral of the story is , don't mess with Tallulah's chocolate.

We have several of the little buggers in the MH,but they just leave little messes and eat the neutrogena soap...Cleans then right out.They don't seem to be able to get into any of the cabinets. They get in thru the door where the electrical cord comes in.. Got plenty of bait traps inside and it's been in the shop getting a new roof and all the belly compts are closed..
Found a Pack rat's nest on top of the DW's Focus and it's a daily driver.Whole sheets of paper,moss,dried leaves,duct tape and we're really surprised no fire and it didn't eat the wires.Also found one on top of the engine in my Trailblazer and that one did get the wires and they wanted $300 for a new harness.Pulled them apart and rewrapped them for about $.10 in rubber tape.Oh, and I found the packrat a couple of days later...DEAD... and found droppings in a bit of anti-freeze in the bottom of the pan I used when I replaced the water pump on the '78 Chev P/U.Bad way to go.It was on the top shelf in the garage and we have no cat.

We use peppermint oil in/around our TT. No mice so far. Lot cheaper than $300.00! Let's see how far down the road can I go on $300.00+????

That's probably what their proprietary formula is.

The PB is only for guests that are already booked in and not for uninvited ones.

It's a toss up as to which is worse - mice, chipmunks or squirrels. Mice generally leave droppings, but so far not really seen much damage. Chipmunks are the worst IMO and have done a great many dollars damage to a now gone TT - destroyed the reefer electronics/electricals as well as eating their way through a wall(~$1000). Then, my truck - they chewed on the heater water valve, causing me to lose all the antifreeze(~$100). My little diesel tractor - ate the edge of the seat, the wiring to all three glow plugs and clogged the air filter(~$150). Squirrels at least are big enough that they can't get in, but have chewed shingles, as well as eat as much bird seed as possible before a .177 or .22 projectile intercedes.

That air filter:
(there were mummified bodies inside as well)
