Moth balls are effective; I drop them in mole tunnels when I encounter one that is irksome - but if there are little kids around, take a miss - they contain a neurotoxin.

I bought one of the ultrasonic plug ins for pests plus, mom has a long hair cat that I have save fur from and put in mesh bags around the holes for the utility chases. And for good measure I set mouse traps. Tried dryer sheets one year but the little Sh**s made a home out of it.

I put fox urine on the tires. Really stinks when I put it on but it's not really a big deal as I do it just before I leave my camp. So far so good.
The moth balls didn't work for us.

How on earth do you encourage a fox to pee on your wheels?

to the forum by the way

One buys it in the hunting department at you local retailer (Walmart, usually has it)
It's used as a "cover scent" by hunters.

I had a lot of problems with a previous Jayco and decided to try cat urine. It's free. We have a couple house cats and I just scoop it out of their litter box and transport it to the storage facility. I scatter it underneath the trailer and around the tires. I also brushed the cats and duct taped their fur underneath. I know it sounds weird and probably the storage lot people don't like it but there have been no signs of mice since. My goal was to discourage them from going around my trailer and check out the other "cat-free" trailers.

This should work good for anybody that can't get out to the rig often to empty and reset those darn traps, plus you won't have to put poison out anymore.

All there is here is a 5 gal. bucket, hole thru both sides of the top with a piece of conduit running thru it, with a plastic water bottle smeared with peanut butter on the conduit, (I will replace that with a piece of PVC just big enough to go over the conduit and spin freely.

There is a small board hooked on the edge of the bucket for the little critters to get up there. Then when they get out on the bottle/PVC, it will spin and down they go into a few inches of water or RV antifreeze . They can't get out) in fact I don't think they swim to good either.

Mouse Trap

Iggy, that's the best mouse trap I know of. I use one in the pole barn all the time. It works effectively without fail. No critter problems with this trap set up.
