We had the coach empty of all food and had anything they could tear up in cabinets that could not be entered. THEN we were told about the Black and Decker Ultrasonic boxes, we bought two at $45 each. we keep one plugged in inside and one plugged in underneath. In two years of the coach parked in the same place as before we have had no mice, none in the interior and none in the bays. Now I amy walk ouside today and there may be a mouse party going on, but nothing at all last year and so far nothing at all this year.
I am curious this year however how they will work as this year I am keeping the heat on in the coach set to 55 inside and 45 in the bays, so it will be warmer inside. Never before left the heat on, so we shall see.
We have been very successful with Irish Spring soap however we leave the bars intact and place them strategically inside the coach and in some of the component compartments.

In my prior s&b home, I had a mouse infestation. I identified their ' game trails' and set out bait. Then waited at night with a pellet pistol. "Small game hunting". ;-)
At the end, the tally was -
.22 air pistol: 8 mice.
Mouse Pruf II poison : 7 mice.
Size 15 boot: one very stupid mouse.
The invasion ended once I nailed "Big Momma".

I use an electric heater to help with humidity. So, I set 4 or 5 mouse traps and check them weekly. I am going to check out that mouse stuff in a previuos post.
