Those Black Cat sticky mice traps work very well and fast. The large ones catch more than one at a time. They are flat like a piece of cardboard about 4x7 inches or thereabouts and cheap. I ought to know.

P.S. Mice love liquor store boxes so open before you bring into the RV or house.

We're rural and there are numerous feral cats roaming the area. We put a bowl of dry cat food on a metal-leg table to encourage them to sort of hang around. Mice and skunks can't climb the table legs but the cats have no problem jumping up there.

Plus 3 little bowls of real peppermint oil, bathroom (rear), galley (middle) & bedroom (front). Seems to work good as we haven't had any sign of vermin in the RV since we started using it.

Keep brush and grass away from your trailer. Ours have been stored on a gravel pad next to our garage for nearly 30 years. No brush or tall grass, or anywhere for mice to hide from preditors. They don't like being out in the open. Never once had a mouse in any of our trailers. Our gargage gets mice all the time. They were even getting the wall of our house which is shared with the garage until I sealed up every crack I could find.

Good old fashioned mouse trap some peanut butter & cheese.

Found evidence that we were not alone in a cupboard last night. Set the neck breaker. This morning, one dead mouse.

Easy meal in the tall grass behind us for something.

I store my camper in a shed at home. A hungry cat in the shed is my first line of defense.

The second is a trap like in the post above.( But, I like the type of mouse trap where you just squeeze the back of it to set it and then squeeze it again to release the mouse.)

Those bucket traps like in the video look like a goo third option but, I've never had to use it yet. They look like they would work even better for the occasional RAT that I get here on the farm ! I HATE RATS.
