I have spent YEARS dealing with rodents...agh!!!Our fav is the Rat Zapper http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...7ETA552Y23B0VF


Continuous kills, easy clean up, by far the best. Other than that, we use the electronic pest repellers. I have used them for years. They have kept rodents out of attics, pantries and engine compartments.

We heard, that using Irish Spring original soap, works, and it has for us. Just open boxes and now and then score the surface. Smells OK too.

Man is never more that nine feet from a mouse. Do your best and understand the mouse stays ahead of the game.

I set lots of traps and check periodically.

That was after crawling around underneath and sealing any holes I could find.

We have loads of mice in a culvert behind our lot. They infest our lawn and snow removal equipment in our shed. They get in our attached garage and have even got in the wall on that side of our house. Yet, never in 22+ years of storing trailers next to our house have we had mice in them. Don't give them a reason to enter it.

Keep all food either sealed in plastic containers, or remove it all together. Keep the area around and under the trailer free of weeds and other hiding places.

I had an older 1989 5th that never had any mice get in but it also had a solid type of covering underneath NOT the crap they use nowadays to make trailers so called all-season. That stuff is close to impossible to seal properly.

I got 3 rat zappers. Me and Kitty compete for the most kills ! I have a rat zapper in the camper loaded with peanuts and a fresh set of batteries. I am due to check it this weekend.

I've been having a mouse problem at my Home Base. The mice first gain entrance to my garage and basement by chewing holes through the weatherstripping on my garage doors. Then they chew a hole through the rubber sweep on the door leading to the basement.
