How do I get rid of mice? Last year I had them in the living area but I have stopped that from happening. Now they are in the basement and in the area where all the plumbing and things are. I have been using Fresh Cab and last year I thought it was working but it doesn't seem to be doing so well this year. Since Sunday I have trapped 5 and a week or two before I trapped 1. Hopefully I have gotten the MAMA and the BABIES haven't had a chance to reproduce yet. Any recommendations how to keep them out. [emoticon]

Have you been replacing your fresh cab every month?

I found our answer to this question after scouring forum after forum, and so far it's working great for us, not just for the MH but for one of our vehicles as well:

Predator Pee

Their website hasn't been updated since the '90s, but it's functional.

I have had success with peppermint oil in our TT. I used "pure" peppermint oil on cotton balls in plastic containers. I do the same in the MH except I have 2 ultra sonics inside the coach. out side I use moth balls in plastic containers with holes in the lid placed by the tires and in the basement (no smell from the moth balls gets to the inside)

I have thought of the predator pee but since we live in the desert and our lot backs up to state trust land and we always have Coyotes and Javelina. Maybe Bobcat cat pee would deter them as well but I damn sure don't want Bobcats hanging around either.

You have to plug all the holes the manufacturer has left just for the mice!

1. At night in a dark area turn your lights on in the RV.
2. Crawl underneath and behold you will see the light coming thru all the places the mice are using to get inside your RV.

All the cuts outs for plumping, electrical, tank hookups, etc on the RV are usually cut larger than needed and the manufacturer does NOT put anything around the openings. This is common on ALL RV's.
That is how the mosquitoes get inside your RV also.

"Just One Bite" is IMHO the only stuff to use to get rid of mice. I would only use this stuff in your storage area away from pets and kids. But it does the job.

I bought a can of "Stuff" and sprayed it on all the openings. Easy and fills the hole tight.....no more critters or bugs.


We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
