I used to live in a mobile home court that had a huge problem with mice. Despite the place being lousy with cats, we were the only ones without a mouse problem. Our secret? A German Shepard named Lady. That dog took out everything that came into our yard, including an occasional cat. We were always find mouse heads laying around. One time we found 1/2 of a snake. The back half was lying outside the chainlink fence. Apparently, Lady gnawed off the front half of the snake and couldn't get a grip on the part lying outside the fence.

When I store our trailer in the winter, we mothball it using about 2 boxes of the round mothballs and envelopes. We buy the a box of 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 envelopes and use a hole punch to place several holes in the envelopes. We then place several mothballs per envelope and seal the envelope. I then place all of the envelopes througout the entire trailer. It is easy to toss them anywhere in the trailer. What is nice about this is there isn't any mess to clean up once they are in the envelopes. Also, you can re-use them for a couple of seasons. When we remove the envelopes, I place them in a zip lock bag and keep them in our garage until I use them again in the fall to store the trailer. We've been doing this for over 15 years and have never had any mice in the trailer during storage. The only thing is in the spring, it may take a couple of days to air out the trailer.
