How do you get rid of mice???
I have tried moth balls and Irish Spring soap. Not sure how well they work. It takes a few days to air out the rig and still have a mouse or two. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

Traps and more traps.....and possibly bait as a last resort.

Don't want to use traps or bait. Don't want to hurt them just want them to not come in..

Get lots of sticky traps. They work great, and after trapping it is a simple throw away!

Remove the "Welcome" sign & replace it with a sign that says "Cat on Board"

I appreciate your reluctance but these little monster were responsible for the black plague (killing >20 million) and still carry a multitude of disease.
You do nothing but good by ridding your space of them.

Snap traps baited with peanut butter. Check and empty often. 99% of the time they don't know what hit them. Sorry. I hate killing anything too, but these guys will make your life miserable and don't understand "keep out" signs. Can be very destructive. Glue traps are cruel and unusual punishment.

I use peppermint essential oils, put a drop on several cotton balls, but don't do it at night [emoticon] peppermint is an energizer. Also, I have my husband put some cotton balls in the under carry (is that the right word?)[emoticon]

As soon as one chews up your wiring harness or you get sick because they fouled your utensils you will change your mind. You can make it harder for them by plugging every tiny possible entrance with steel wool but they will find a way.

We keep all our food stuffs in sealable plastic containers to avoid attracting them in the first place.

I've tried all the traps and I refuse to use bait. I fill my toilet halfway with water and leave the lid up. The first time I did this I sprayed silicone on the bowl but it's not necessary. They smell the water, enter and can't get out. Flush after you've caught one, and if you have them you will, and refill until all signs are gone.
