Instead of peanutbutter I put a drop of glue and sprinkle bird seed into it.Less mess and sort of permanent.

Our Motorhome sets out on the side of the barn. Over ten years ago I started using bar bait, mouse killer,I use it in the barn and outside. Take a coffee can and drill a 1" hole in it, put some bar bait in the can. Check your can in a week or so. the coffee can keeps your other animals out of it. Have not had a problem sence i started with the bait. good luck. Denny

put a few of those home made bucket water traps around the coach and be prepared to be astounded as to what you will see.

the guy on the smugmug site swears that the base of rock he put down to park on has kept all the rodents away, he believes that they don't like, or cannot, travel over the larger stones...

the owner of Phoenix is starting legal action, its on the picture site....

The mice are going to be there so give them what they want. Food. I use DCON mouse and rat killer. They have an outdoors version. They have a hole in the center. I use a piece of wire to tie in place. Make it easy to reach. They smell it. They eat it. It kills them and the whole family.

I was just snooping around the internet. Do a google search using "baking soda mouse killer" without the quotes.

My brother is in the pest control business and I asked him about the rock base, what he said is that rodents will not choose a surface that does not let them travel-outdoors- very quickly so the rock having an effect does make sense to him. As for the water buckets he says this is a well known and very effective way to dispatch mice, many plans/info are available on the internet.

Where are mice most likely to enter a motorhome? I'd like to start stuffing steel wool in gaps before it becomes an issue. They can't enter via the engine comprtment, can they? (I know, dumb girl question, sorry)
