Huskinhano 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!

RetroJoe 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!

4 Jaw Chick 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.

71montebbc I agree. Im not sure of the exact gestation period but they reproduce extremely fast.

Native Gearhead 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.

wheelsup64 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.

71montebbc Thats defnatly the first time Ive seen a hedgeapple. I see what you mean by dont eat them, They dont even look tasty. I am going to try all of these recipes in different areas around my place and my vehicles and see what happens.

Hot Rod/SS 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.

dollybud I swear by mothballs. Another thing they will do is repel flies. Take an old nylon stocking, cut up to make small bags, put in 6 to 10 balls, tie up and hang up on your porch or in your garage. It doesn't get rid of every fly but keeps them at bay.

71montebbc I have never heard of a hedgeapple before. So Ill have to research that one. I will also agree those moth balls do have a long lasting odor verses bounce. But on the other hand Ill never forget the odor a bunch of mice will leave, serious yuuuuuk!

Hey 71 Monte ,
I have heard of some people using vanilla scented granules (available at places like Wal Mart, & craft shops)
Also ,have heard of people using Bounce fabric softener dryer sheets with fairly good results, just use more than 2 or 3 .
Anything but mothballs----yeeecccchhhh !!!
