lol that is funny and sort of how I feel about now. We haven't seen any today but I went and got some stuff today and hope to be rid of them soon. I can't even imagine what could happen to our wiring since that seems to be where they are running back too.
Colleen - no rv experience - but you are on to two of them - sealing openings and peppermint oil. I read some of the threads - here and quick google. Figure you have same info... hopefully someone here has solution other than rent-a-cat.... I know rent-a-owl and rent-a-snake are competitors.
Thanks Steve.......no cats here I am super allergic to them, but a rental cat I would have tried. lol
And if you can't sit around waiting... put the paper over the edge of a counter with a 5 gallon bucket or a trashcan under it that is deep enough mousy can't jump out....however, since you are not out boondocking, i suspect, you don't want to catch and release. We had a wiring harness chewed and replaced. I put irish spring soap slices in the drawers and cubbies and any compartments and cotton balls with pepperment oil on them (extract will evaporate too quickly) and re-dosed them monthly last winter. no mice, but then, we have 2 outside cats also....and the RV stays in our back parking area where cats live.
I went and got Irish Spring today too, thanks Marty. I have lots of essential oil in peppermint and spearmint so doing both since last night and it smells good in here.
