That really gives new meaning to "build a better mouse trap"

Never the less "That" is one GREAT trap!!

Cedarcide ( works for us. Sprinkle the sawdust granules around the perimeter plus a few well placedsachets throughout does the trick. Critters of all stripes can't stand the aroma found in the cedar oils

Have Y'all ever thought of what happens to all the poison that is put into the environment with the use of mouse and rat bait?

It doesn't decompose, it usually ends up travelling up the animal food chain, and as it is designed to be a cumulative killer, has also killed cats, raptors, etc.

Another case of man vs. nature with no winner...

Please think about the enviroment and try to limit the use of these toxins. It may be a pet of yours that you save.

I like those hockey puck traps. You can tell when one is in there, and you just throw it away. You don't have to touch the bodies, let alone see them.

It has been almost a week since we put the cover on it and put it away for the winter. I have only checked it once since then and so far so good. Right now we have moth balls, balsam balm and peppermint oil in different places scattered around the interior.Also we have placed two traps that once they go in they can's go out. Under the camper outside we have mothballs. I am going to check it once a week throughout the winter.

I think those are some great ideas. It seems that a lot of the vulnerability is found where appliance or outside hookups come into the RV. It's probably best to park on a slab of cement or cut the lawn low like you suggested.

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.

You forgot to mention that the RV antifreeze acts like an embalming solution and won't stink up the trailer if left for some periods of time!

I haven't needed this setup yet but now that I mentioned it I'm sure that I will find all kinds of evidence of mice being in my trailer in the spring

Happy Camping,
