Default Mouse problems.

I have a mouse problem in my 5th wheel and can't seem to get rid of them.

I've tryed bounce dryer sheets they make nests out of them.

I have traps set they just eat the peanut butter off them.

I pluged all the holes I can find with steelwool and silicone caulk.

I do have mothballs in the storage compartment and under the cupboards. They aren't working.

Any suggestions?

I've been doing some research and see that people say to use Irish spring soap, peppermint oil on cotton balls, mothballs around the tires and landing gear.

Anyone had any luck with any of those things?

Dan the man used them to keep the mice out of his Z, they were the only thing that did work.
Maybe you need to try the lawn chair/12pk/shot gun method.

Put the mothballs under the camper. As I recall, he had plates of moth balls near the tires.

1) Insure camper.

2) Burn camper

3) Use insurance money to buy mouse-free camper.

I don't want to poison them and have them walk off in to the wall or behind shit I can't move or in to the air ducts then die. The smell is horbal. I'm all for killing them but I want to be able to remove the body so it doesn't smell.

I told the wife I was going to burn it to the ground and buy a new one but she didn't like that idea.

Saw a cool video of a mouse trap today. Uses a bucket, piece of rod or coat hanger and a 20oz pop bottle. Drill holes in the cap and bottom of the bottle and put the rod thru it. Smear the label area with peanut butter and rest the rod on the sides of the bucket. The mouse will walk onto the rod then bottle to get to the peanut butter then the bottle will spin dropping the mouse into the bottom of the bucket. just give them a way to get up to the top

if your using traps, melt semi choco chip onto post/stem, they love it, dont use milk choco ships they pass on them.

when we go camping/fishing, we put the minow trap under the trailer, once they enter they seem to never get out, if your camping near the water, carry minow down to the shore and drown them, or a 5 gallon bucket works.

Q- ? do you have a slide out ?

Talking

James... I talked to the extermination guy that looks after our "Particleboard" mill about this exact problem... (Had some in my travel trailer). He said make sure the grass is kept very short under the trailer or park on a tarp and to put cayenne pepper or ground chilis under the trailer around the jacks, wheels and anywhere that they might use to climb into the trailer. He said that they are always licking their feet to clean themselves, similar to a cat, and the pepper will burn their eyes and mouth working as a deterent to them...

I would use the bucket method for the fuckers that are already inside... with the antifreeze to drown them in
