Smile No Mice here

I have always just used Bounce Sheets scattered around my camper and no mice. Just be sure you get the Bounce Brand. I know people who have tried a cheaper brand to save a buck and ended up with mice. It's well worth the extra pennies Bounce cost,

Bounce fabric softener sheets. Rodents hate them. We place them in cabinets, furniture and in the under storage area , paying attention to where water and electrical enter the camper from underneath. Leaves a lasting scent, but not as strong as moth balls.

We use a combo of dryer sheets and Irish Spring soap and moth balls around the 5er on the outside .

I will be trying this.....wish me luck! ...

+1 0n the Fresh Cab. I spread them around as I close up for the winter, and pick and pick up last years. Non toxic for all our furry kids and others and makes the home smell fresh all year round. I do not seal all openings, some of those are needed to let water drain out that accumulates.

buy a box of Fresh cab for the pine lemon citrus fresh scent that lasts 90 days and then replace.

bounce sheets some say work... my buddy found out they are not that effective. he just caught 13 mice on his 2015 trailer in the past month. bounced the sheets out and installed fresh cab X 3 packages.
