Mice Repellent

Post by JEBar » Sat May 23, 2020 8:13 am

as noted in another thread, yesterday we found mice damage to wiring in one of our vehicles .... recommendations from anyone who has found a product that works well in repelling mice in vehicles

Cab Fresh or Fresh Cab. I get it at the Ace Hardware store. It's Balsam Oil and it comes in little packets that you place around problem areas. Also there is another product that is Spearmint that does the same thing. We scatter them in our motorhome when it's parked and it does a pretty good job.

I hear also that a bunch of Bounce dryer sheets spread around inside a vehicle deters mice. They don't like the smell.
I use them in my Mustang during Fall and Winter storage.

I have around 6 semi-feral cats that hang out on my property so the mouse population is near zero. Wish they would go after the family of squirrels that showed up this year, they're eating a lot of our chicken feed.

You won't see many cats that can take down a squirrel. Only one I have ever seen do it was the neighbor's cat a few year ago. I'm not saying the cat was a real hunter, but I expected her to bring home a small deer some time.

I've learned that Honda actually makes a "Mousetape" to wrap the wires in .... their rodent-deterrent tape is treated with capsaicin which is a substance found in hot peppers .... its a tad on the expensive side so I'm seriously considering making some

This company is known as a solutions provider. Try them, what's the worst that could happen?
