    Make sure you keep your mh spotless. Tape up all of the vents and anywhere that the varmints can crawl in. They will get through the smallest of gaps, lay traps down.

    Sprinkle mothballs everywhere ... they smell but you can soon get rid of the smell in Spring when you open windows and doors before going off.

    Someone also said put tumble drier sheets everywhere. I don't know if it works, but I didn't have any mice last year and I put humane mouse traps out and checked them every day. There wern't any in them so maybe said idea DOES work. :thumb:

    Meeces ...

    My neighbours Merc had strange electric faults that took 3 months of investigations by main dealer. The mice had eaten the wiring loom under the dash.

    Not a problem their computer systems had in the list of faults.:Doh:

    I keep one of the electronic things plugged in when on h/u. Used to have mice in garage but they seem to keep them out.:thumb:

    Regards Richard

    Some say moth balls work, place them anywhere you think they are getting in,

    I just keep a two baited traps (peanut butter) and get em as they come in, but not had any in for two years. Thought they would come in last year with the hard winter, been lucky. I wouldn't put poison down, they might die in the van, if there is enough of them they will stink.

    Fieldmice get through holes the size of a (thin) pencil. Sweet, used to run along the draining board, climb up and sit on the mixer tap washing their whiskers. In my kitchen at home with me right there!!!!!

    As soon as we released em from the humane mousetraps I had scoured Coventry to obtain, the little b's came back. As said bung up everything you can possibly bung up, also invest in several 'Little Nippers' (sorry Joy) and a bag of chocolate buttons, they defo like them round here! I didn't like it - but enough is enough. And we did find the hole so have been fine since - so far!

    Can't keep em out the garage though so that is always booby trapped for the little darlings.
