Didn`t look like they did any damage yet but i`d like to keep it that way!
I tried a guick reply to a posting yesterday, and after hitting submit it disappeared into cyberspace never to be seen again! But this newbie will try again. Back to the subject at hand (mice), I too had problems with mice in my fifth wheel and collector cars. I did not like the idea of dead mice in my vehicles and my wifes cousin told me about this product and my first thought was "it'll never work", but farmers have been dealing with mice for a log time. So I bought some at O'reilly Auto Parts. It's called FRESH CAB and it's a little spendy (3 to 4 dollars a pouch) but, it works!!!! It's all natural and biodegradable. It comes 4 sealed pouches to the box and I have used it now for the past 2 winters and IT WORKS!!!!! I put two pouches in each car and three pouches in the FW(1 in the basement, 1 in the bedroom, and 1 in the back of the FW. Cab Fresh has a not unpleasant fragrance but, at first it can be a little overpowering, that will decrease with time. They work all winter up here in northern Minn. and since things freeze so solid here, it's a wonder they put out a fragrance, but they do. The one thing I will warn about is the rubber band that is attached to the pouch for hanging. If the pouches have been sitting on the shelf a long period of time, the pouches work fine, but the rubber band becomes gummy and sticky, so I just cut the rubber bands off.
I wouldn't try to use them the 2nd year as the fragrance diminishes and at that point they could become food for critters. I have seen them
for sale on Ebay and at truck-stops. Their web site is www.earth-kind.com
HAPPY CAMPING and I hope this helps.
