Another good way to keep mice out is by using peppermint oil. Take a small object and put a few drops of the peppermint oil on it. Put the object in trunk under seat ect. You will not have any more mice.

Dr. Ken prescribes one box of Decon rat & mouse poison bait in the back seat. If they chew their way in for a meal, it'll be their last.

This might not be your conventional solution, but I got one here in my house and he ate holes in my son's shirts in the laudry basket. My son caught it with his hands, but decided not to kill it. So I just started leaving little food pieces or cookies in a dish in an area where he won't cause damage. So now he eats the food and leaves everything else alone. It doesn't exactly get rid of mice, but it diverts them to another area, and you always have food scraps to throw away, anyhow.

Looking for trouble feeding the natives. Soon all the little creatures will be visiting your house.
I vote for the non-poison alternatives. We tried using Warfarin when we lived in the country, problem was, if you didn't use just the right amount the little busturds would become resistant to it and you'd have to try something else. I hear mothballs are a really good alternative, feeding them is definately not.

Chickie.

Throw several Bounce sheets in the car, that will keep them away and you won't have the stink that mothballs have! Come summer time it won't smell like grandma's riding in the car!

I read in Car Craft that "Irish Spring" soap works well! Also get a CAT! I have a ranch house with my garage inside. My cat has climbed into the sheet rocked ceiling of the garage from the basement side to get the suckers nesting in there!
