HEY! prevent Mice from crawling around

Check this out. I'm gonna see if this works. My new trailer sits in a farm machine shed with mice activity off season.

Interesting idea. Maybe you should line the top of the plates with some "mouse food" as a backup plan.

Ya I thought of that

I thought of putting some sticky raps around on the sheet metal so in the chance that they got up there, they would maybe get in the traps. My wife thinks there should be tar smeared around a bit.

Arnt barn mice typically jumpers? I would think they would jump up on the axels, plumbing etc and find a way in somehow. Got a barn cat by chance??

Ya well its been there for a while. No sign of mouse terds on the ledge. I hope ours are the type that dont jump. They have plenty of places in the shed to hang out as long as there is no reason to scale the cliff, they may not....

Those would be good for stopping termites from building tunnels into your camper as well.

Dryer Sheets

Come across this suggestion several years ago after having mice "move in" during winter storage. Place dryer sheets around inside the trailer- floor, counter, etc. I was told they don't like the smell (your choice on fragrance?), but haven't had to set any traps for awhile now. No droppings, nothing. And, when you open it up to air it out come early spring, it smells good inside!
