I use four used gojo hand cleaner tubs then fill with a little bag of mice poison.
Cut a nice mouse hole in the bottom.
Yet to have a mouse in the camper or signs thereof and I live on a farm.



Put a heavy rock in there to keep it upright .
I put these under the camper.
They keep getting empty I keep filling them.

We use mouse magic or fresh cab, it works great. We use it in Our sheds and a couple of cars we store in the winter. It keeps the mice from nesting in our lawn tractor. Haven't had a problem with the camper in years.

I expect to get flamed, but need to ask that people please do not use rat/mouse poison. Most every one works by causing the rodent to bleed to death internally. This takes some time so while they are dying, they become very thirsty and go in search of water. If they run across your yard and are eaten by an owl or a hawk, then you not only killed the mouse, but also the bird. I see way too many secondary poisonings.

Flybob - very good point. I'm against killing them altogether which is why I try to naturally keep them away rather then killing them once they arrive.

Cat urine is a fantastic deterrent that makes my camper VERY uninviting and allows the animals to live on and do their thing.

The best thing to do is place a high power 600W work light(s) in the RV at various places. Then crawl underneath and plug up all light sources with caulk, foam, etc. If you can see light, you have a hole.

Obviously this works best at dusk/night.

I am new to RV, but in my garage we found droppings and responded by using these plugins. Didn't see anymore droppings. Since I run 110 ac when parked to keep batteries topped off - I plug these into the wall outlets. Without 110, I would use a little cigarette-lighter 12V inverter to plug into. Done't know how this will work, but haven't seen any mice or droppings yet. Also, no ants or bugs..... here is where I got mine:

Interested in how well the cat litter works, so take a couple of scoops and put them in a container then put under the camper?

No cats. No litter. If I did, I would certainly give it a try.

My previous hybrid was torn up by mice. They made nests with the Great Stuff foam in my oven. They ate and made nests (and died) in the front bunk mattress. They chewed threw the canvas in seral places (had to order a new front canvas and mattress).

Solved the problem with one of these. And it only costs me a couple pounds of cat food a month.
