Does the farmer have a cat or two that you can borrow (I'm serious)? Most rodents hate peppermint, I got rid of squirrels in our storage shed with oil of peppermint and cotton balls. (be very generous with the peppermint oil).

I had mice last year when I stored my coach along the fence line of the facility that bordered a vacant lot that was overgrown.

First, moved the coach to an open area away from any fence.

Second, got me a few traps, put that peanut butter and jelly spread on the BOTTOM of the trap trigger.

I had all of them buggers in short order. Works every time without fail.

Finally, took me two weeks to completely clean out the coach and toss everything them buggers peed and pooped on.

Traps, peanut butter/jelly

Mice

I had rodent problems in my 92 Oakland when I first bought it. Got the wife to shine a flashlight in all the corners while I watched from underneeth. Finally found the hole in the floor where the gas tank filler hose passed through was way too large for the hose. Sprayed some expanding foam around it from under and over and that ended the problem.

Hope this helps you.

Bill
