If you're near a large cliff overlooking the ocean, I've heard a flute works wonders...

I have heard of stuffing mouse holes with steel wool, but how do you hold their tiny feet?!

When we bought our Burro, it had dryer sheets EVERYWHERE!! Sounds weird, but I have never seen a mouse, mouse droppigs or even an ant or roach, now that I think of it. Sure beats the poison stuff!!

Being from Maine originally we have always used the Maine Mouse-ah. Check out the link to the description page. http://www.mouse-ah.com/description.htm

It doesn't take care of ants but it will take care of your mice. Another tip is to use the pedetor pray instinct. If you pick up some fox or bobcat urine form any hunting supplier and sprinkle a bit on the ground around the outside of the trailer they will be less inclined to hang around.

The third tip I picked up from my dad who puts his Ford Model A for the winter each year. He buys the big jar of whole cloves and makes saches with them. The smell a whole lot better than mothballs and appear to do just as good of a job. He has not had a single mouse in the car despite seeing evidence that they have been in the garage.

Now if I could just figure out a way to keep the little buggers out of the cooling chambers of my lawnmower and garden tractor. About three times a year I have to get the wrenches out and take all of the housings off the engine and clean out the residents. My dogs have now figured out what happens and come running when I start the tractor up hoping to catch one of the mice making a run for it.

I have problems with rats up here on Whidbey, and someone suggested mothballs. They supposedly work as a deterrent- the rats will still come if there is nowhere better to go, but won't make the place with mothballs their first choice. Result: no rats last year. No idea if the mothballs helped, though, or it was just a light year for rats.
