      George & Linda OBriain January 13 Try dryer sheets in the compartments and cupboards (they'll last a year).  Above all else, fill the areas where there is a likelihood of mice getting into the RV with fibreglass insulation.

      Jim & Sharon Ham January 13 We buy Fresh Cab at the local Farm Store and spread packets around the RV and outside compartments.  Works well.  We also buy a couple of boxes of the sticky mouse traps and put about 8 of those around the interior. A few drops of Peppermint Oil...  more

      Mr.disaster January 13 Crawl under your rig and plug every hole with steel (or copper) wool.  You can cover the hole with duct tape to protect the steel wool.  Inside we use glue traps.  We also sprayed the underside of the rig with a bleach mix to kill the urine...  more

      Andy & Maureen T January 14 Under the unit we put Irish Spring. Inside the unit we use peppermint lifsavers. the ones that are individually wrapped. Any hole we stuff with dryer sheets. So far this has worked very well. The lifesavers work great. Had a problem with mice eating / liv...  more

        Andy & Maureen T January 14 BTW... cut up a bar of Irish Spring, don't put a whole bar down. We also put a piece on top of the tires.

        Jimmy & Connie Taylor January 14 Only problem is I like LIFE SAVERS. LOL

        Catpack January 14 Hi Andy & Maureen T.  You say to leave the lifesavers in the plastic wrappers.  Do you split the wrapper or not open it at all?

      Lanell Schramm January 14 Will this work for Squirrels? My Sisterinlaw has a fairly new car and squirrels have made their way under the hood and have eaten lots of the wires. She had to have it towed to dealership to be fixed. What is best to keep them out of your business?

      SouthernRVer January 25 I have a couple pots of peppermint.  Mice hate the smell.  You can make a spray by soaking mint in alcohol and then spraying both inside and outside.  Several other pests also hate the smell. Your rv really smells nice plus a few springs in...  more
