SMART mouse ED 2-14-03  
This isnt a mechanical question but has anybody got any idea how to remove a mouse from my motorhome. He has taken up residence I guess for the winter, so do I have to wait him out till the spring when it gets warm he would, hopefully, move out!? I have tried traps, sticky paper stuff, and new fangled mercy traps...he just walks around and ignores them... thanks

I use peppermint to drive mice away for some reason an old timer told me to put it in drawers and closets in the fall. I guess mice don't like the strong odor. the up side is that in the spring it smells much better than moth balls.

Name him?

Sounds like a smart fellow. Unless you domesticate him and get your hands on him doubt you'll get him out of there.

If the traps don't work then you got yourself a new pet.

But seriously yes more than likely if he doesn't find enough food to make him happy in the warmer weather he will move on to greener pastures.

But if you allow those crumbs to hit the floor he will be there forever.

Get a five gallon plastic pail. Place some type of food in the bottom and set the pail in a place where the mouse can climb in. They can't get out as it has nothing for them to cling to in order to escape.

Two great things I have used to bait the mouse traps is peanut butter or a small piece of Hershey's candy bar.

Don't put too much on the trap trip lever. Just enough to make him work for it.

If the bucket don't work maybe this will.

Good Luck.
