Mice control

X2 on cab fresh for inside and use old cobblers farnam blocks of mice poison in closed containers with holes for mice to enter under RV near power cord/dumps lines/wheels. We used cab fresh in our last RV with good success but when it was not available for a time period we used the old cobblers blocks under the RV and found that it also did the trick. cab fresh needs to be in closed areas and replaced every 3 months or scent gets too little to repel. The old cobblers worked better than other mice poison we tried. It was recommended to us by 2 feed stores as the best. Old cobblers is on amazon.

The coyote urine makes sense, have to get me some.
Looks like a good idea. What about an outside cat? If it is doable it will solve the problem.
Good Luck and keep us posted please. "Q"

Outside cat won't work. The man, who graciously lets us park in his yard for the summer, has dogs that keep his place cat free.

We have had problems in the past and like many others we started plugging holes with steel wool, caulk and foam. Then I took a spray bottle with Irish Spring soap and water in it and do a lap around the outside of the motorhome spraying the ground, tires and low access points. We have had 1 mouse in 4 years since I started this routine. Much better than the 20 or so we caught the first year. lol

I tried almost all of the above with no luck

They were taking up residence in the valley under the intake manifold but nothing inside the RV

I put 2 12v 20" LED strips and 1 standard 120v LED bulb in the engine compartment strategically placed

In addition I completely washed the area with bleach and cleanser and then sprayed a light coat of WD40 throughout the effected area

Same problem in my truck parked in the driveway.

Did the same method and no issues since

It's been about 6 months and have had no squatters
so far it's working
