I've used it along with dryer sheets for 3 years and have not have a problem. I can say for sure what works and what does not but I will keep doing this until I have a problem. I have also sealed up the RV to the best of my ability and try to get out all food during storage.

I'm trying some WalMart All Purpose cleaner with bleach. A friend has had good results with it, spraying the tires and ground around them as well as areas of the frame where mice can enter the unit through the frame and holes for wiring and plumbing.

My WalMart cleaner worked well for the mice. �� I went into town and was lucky to find some Fresh Cab and put it close to where I think they're coming in under the shower. But also found a new hole and plugged it with tin foil (no steel wool with me). Got a good nights sleep with no visitors! I'll have to figure out if it's the Fresh Cab or the tin foil that did the trick.

We purchased some peppermint oil and it isn't working. We have tried moth balls and this peppermint oil. They seem to still get in. We have traps set and catch a few with them. I still looking for a tried and true way to rid our Wildwood Lodge of mice!

The peppermint works, but you need to get "Essential oil of Peppermint" not common peppermint oil. This can be found at health and holistic stores. Put 4-5 drops on a few cotton balls in an old glass or coffee mug. Do not get it on anything it will damage paint and plastic. Replenish when the scent gets weak. I have used in my RVs for years and no mice or spiders despite mice in the garage right next to it.
