I can't find Fresh Cab in any of the stores around here. Tractor Supply has a place for it on their shelve but, they tell me they can no longer get Fresh Cab form their vendor. Does anyone know where you can still buy fresh Cab? O have used Fresh Cab for several years and had no mouse problems. I would sure like to get some for this winter.

Start with a few bait stations and old school traps on the outside of your RV. I have three stations around the outside. 4 old school traps too. Kill them while they are on the outside.

Spray foam the pipes and all the other good stuff mentioned here on the inside. Add a few bait stations and traps on the inside too.

Try STAY AWAY MICE, Fresh Cab isn’t on the market. I understand the EPA is involved. Stay Away is made by the same outfit that made Fresh Cab.

I found a similar product (to Fresh Cab & Stay Away) at Lowes called Shake Away Mouse Repellent. Organic and natural. Indicated for RV's and recd good reviews.

Although bait stations may protect family pets and children from getting the bait, they still allowed poisoned rodents to leave the station where they are eaten by Raptors or family cats. Dozens of Bald Eagles have been poisoned in Maryland this year from eating poisoned wildlife.
Best solution is to keep them out , but if they get in, good old snap traps.

Here is a link to Earthkind's web site explaining the differences between Fresh Cab and Stay Away.

Fresh Cab vs Stay Away

Fresh Cab does appear to becoming extinct.
Really doesn't matter to me... the mice in our area tore the bags open and made nests out of the stuff!

I think the general rule is, if it works well, they will take it off of the market. many of my favorites are gone, from drain cleaner to driveway crack filler, to floor polish.

Why would the EPA be involved with Fresh Cab, it's made from all natural ingredients.

I just did some research on EarthKind Fresh Cab and this is what I found.

They are a small company ran by farm owner Kari Warberg Block with about 30 farmers/employees making Fresh Cab during slow time on the farm. When harvest season comes around production is halted so crops can be harvested. When she started making Fresh Cab she was giving it away to neighbors. It is because of the slow down of production and high demand of Fresh Cab that it gets hard to purchase during the fall.

The problem with low supplies of Fresh Cab I had heard back in September from a gentleman who had contacted Block about when he wanted to purchase a larger than normal amount. At that time I thought it was just an excuse as to why no stores around my area had Fresh Cab.

EarthKind makes Fresh Cab and Stay Away.

Block's problem with the EPA came about when she started selling the product without a license at county fairs.
https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/...n_4171299.html

She also had problems with how Walmart deals with their suppliers. Here is an article on that matter.

At the risk of repeating something already suggested in the 6 pages of replies, I offer the following. I plan to put coyote urine stuffed in nylon stockings in strategic locations but will also surround our rig with a corrall. I think it's the best last defense.

Mice Barrier for Cars | Natural Reserve System

I also plan to add this to my over-winter defense as my rig will be stored outdoors at my daughter's ranch. Mice Barrier for Cars | Natural Reserve System

Sniper rifle pellet gun.
Let the wife know that you will be busy all day working on keeping mice out of the trailer.
Get a 18 pack of your favorite beverage and an ice chest. I would suggest a camo ice chest. Easier to conceal if the wife comes lookin for ya. Donít forget a camo cuzie because they will help with the reflection coming off of your beverage. Donít forget the ice.
Set up a sniper nest. Put some camo on if your feeling like a frog man. Easier to hide from the wife that way. And the mice.
This is important. When the beverages start running low. Please remember. Mice are not 5í6Ē tall nor do they have long blond hair. And they do not know your name. They also donít speak English. I think they speak mice.
Do not engage! Good luck.

Take it as you may but we had an enclosed 28 ft trailer we used for storage and mice literally at it to pieces. We sold it, sold what contents we could salvage and when we bought our 5th wheel camper I was worried sick. We researched and decided on a product called ďall natural RODENT MACEĒ from Nature MACE. I canít say it works, but it worked 300% for us. Not one mouse. AT ALL. We bought the concentrated 1 Gal jug. Treats 87,000 SQ. FT. UPC number is 645696918002. Active ingredients are peppermint oil, 5.00%, spearmint oil 5.00%, lemongrass oil 2.50%. Other ingredients are water, Sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium benzoate 87.50%. My personal experience, I swear by it.

And during camp season it makes a great marinade.

I'm joking. I never heard of that one. I see it's on Amazon. This one is a gallon jug but it seems to be diluted since the oils are only 1 %. Different UPC from what you posted so I'm guessing this is a pre-mix and yours is a concentrate.

Jeff, did you spray around the trailer or IN the trailer? Our problem is the pack rats are living in the mechanical works of the motor home and have even gotten into the generator and are working on the wires there. They come out of the woods in the evening, seem to gain access to the undercarriage by jumping up on top of the propane tank and go from there. My mechanic confirmed that they live in the framework of the vehicles and leave at night to forage, then return at dawn. I would think we would need to try and spray at night while they were out to prevent their return. Probably put granules on floor pan of generator. Just kinda "writing out loud" here, but it does look like an effective product. Thanks for the tip.

I sprayed it all around our RV and all underneath on the ground and the entire underneath the RV itself. I didnít want them to just jump from the ground onto the underbelly of the RV. I re spray once a month or after it rains. My time is not as important as my RV.
