Well, I spoke too soon, in looking further, I see another couple of places that were clean, that have a little mess, and I think they may have gotten a bit of the peanut butter off of the traps, so I will see how tomorrow morning goes. The glue traps may come out when Alton comes home!! I do not want to mess with those! :Winking:November 25, 2015 at 10:30 am #19226AnonymousInactive
3 have been captured in the old fashion wooden spring trap with peanut butter Sharon. Very highly effective 🙂 I haven’t been to the store yet to get the “rid-away” stuff to place in the compartments. I will be tossing in dryer sheets and see how well that goes. I have been hunting many hours and haven’t seen a coyot or fox yet to shoot. I would use the urine.November 25, 2015 at 12:02 pm #19232Paul BoyleParticipant
Stray dogs and cats were using my backyard is a toilet. My feet are dog poop magnets. So, I put a coyote skull in a flower pot and It kept them out of my yard for 5 years. My friend had a skunk problem and I put 2 skulls in her yard and the skunks haven’t been back. I taught science and used them in class nothing weird. Skulls might not work on mice they like to eat the bone for calcium But one by every contact point to the ground might be worth the effort?November 25, 2015 at 1:06 pm #19236
Well, I am having no luck with the old fashioned traps. I am thinking the mice must be very small, as they are eating the peanut butter and the traps are not snapping, although when I just pull the drawer out, they snap easily! The dryer sheet is about a foot away, so…..LOL Almost all of the peanut butter is off, so they will have to really work at it now, so waiting to see if it will snap tonight!! :Devil:November 25, 2015 at 1:10 pm #19238
I hope to soon have mouse skulls to set around!!! I am about willing to try anything at this point! Something was running back and forth on the roof at 2am trying to get in the vent in my bedroom. About 4:30 I got up and went out and slept on the loveseat! I saw the owners of the park and they volunteer their shot gun, but thinking not a good idea! :scratch:November 27, 2015 at 4:51 am #19310AnonymousInactive
That is interesting Paul. I went coyot hunting the other day without hearing or seeing a peep and walked for miles just when dawn tried to break. I will keep trying and I know men who are hunting them so maybe I’ll get a skull and/or urine yetNovember 27, 2015 at 7:32 am #19323
Get yourself some Fresh Cab…it works!
I had a heck of a time with mice last summer at a work camping job as I forgot to replenish my Fresh Cab supply before returning to BC. Probably trapped around 30. Nobody locally carried Fresh Cab so ordered some from Amazon. No more mice.
Good Luck!November 27, 2015 at 7:53 am #19325
Thank you, I think I will order some of that. I was happy to have no new mice in my traps today, though!! I know I am not that lucky to have gotten rid of them for good though. It looks like you can buy it at Ace Hardware as well, so next time I go to town I will look there to see if they have it before I order it online. Have a great day where ever you are right now! It is pouring here in Missouri and will be for the next 3 days, guess it is time to clean and sew! :Raining:November 27, 2015 at 5:51 pm #19341LarryParticipant
Put coyote urine around camper,rodents still come in and eat d-con pelletsNovember 27, 2015 at 10:23 pm #19344Paul BoyleParticipant
So the mice got pissed and got hungry ?November 28, 2015 at 7:40 am #19364
Thanks all! Alton is on his way back, so I will let him know all of these things to do and he will be head mouse hunter after today!! :yahoo: He could have maybe found a coyote while he was out west…..at least a skull to bring back!! This is the second morning that there has not been evidence in the cupboards, but the traps are still set. Hey, maybe the dead mice laying out back were enough to make them stay away! :Thinking:January 5, 2016 at 4:31 am #21534AnonymousInactive
We used to put our 5th wheel in our AG building on the farm every winter and sure enough the mice would take to that thing like flys on cow dookie.No matter how many mice traps or bait or smelly things we put in and around it,they came and they brought all their families too.
So then we put it outside up by the house and covered it and never had another problem.We haven’t had a mouse in years with that one or the one we have now.
Oh,forgot to mention,,,,,,,,,,,we did get some cats.I think last count it was 9 however they are all fixed now.
So,my suggestion is a cat,and we can help you out with that too.For every cat you choose to take home with you for an RV body guard,we’ll throw in another of OUR choosing absolutely free.
Please don’t thank us.We’re just glad to help.
We have one cat that will leave mice all over the driveway and every morning it is not uncommon to go out and pickup 10 to 12 lifeless mice bodies.
NO,you can’t have that cat. :mail:January 5, 2016 at 9:51 am #21552
You are too funny!!! I would get a cat in a minute, however, my boyfriend does not like them. So!!!
Seriously though, we have had no more of them since I caught the 2 in traps and still have the traps set. :yahoo: I did throw moth balls all around under us and by the wheels and steps. I also put dryer sheets all around and in everything and bought the high pitch things you plug in, so……I hope it is one of those things that are helping!!
We live in ours full time, so no parking empty for us, at least we hope. We are at a park in Missouri right now and will be here maybe until spring. It is cold at night, but the days are nice and sunny most of the time. It really rains here though, as the news shows, but we are not by those rivers and up high on stones, so good to go…..maybe all of the mice in Missouri drown by now….one can only hope!!! :Devil:January 6, 2016 at 6:47 am #21592Marsha & DeweyParticipant
Boy it sure is apparent this is a hot topic, with lots of tools to keep the little buggers away. we have not had any trouble with the mice situation, lately. but wanted to share we have a kitty, Pumpkin, quite an accomplished hunter, also. She took care of one of the little buggers, one afternoon when we were gone and left her prize for us to find, along with messed up throw rugs showing us her fun afternoon of hunting. Pumpkin was one satisfied cat. :Cat:January 6, 2016 at 8:05 am #21609
Good Kitty!!!!! :Cat: :yahoo: :heart:
