So the mice have little lounge chairs and little drinks with umbrelles in them then. Ya its not a huge issue for me cause the car is outside so its not much warmer than the outside temp but I agree bounce sheets work well and the car smells nice for the first few runs in the spring . Ed

A friend had bounce sheets all through his car with a mouse trap on a sheet in his trunk. Guess what? He caught a mouse in the trap so that dispels that bounce sheets work. Go ahead and try it and let us know how you make out.

once upon a time not to long ago there was a cottage in the northern woods with a mother and son who spent many sleepless nights listening to the two inch long elephant in the other room

try and try the mother attempted to catch the mouse and failed and failed

until one night after a couple of weeks..

she had almost given up and simply stuck the mouse trap in the middle of the frying pan on the stove

the pan that was still full of bacon grease

a goober more grease and a hunk of bacon fat from the pan , and done

goodnight

and within about as long as it took the mouse to get to the trap after the lights went out is exactly how long it took to kill that dammed little mouse that night ..

heh heh heh .. GOODNIGHT

I used steel wool in all the corners of the garage doors and any where there are cracks in the wall. Being down south for the winter I opened my garage for the first time in 6 months, found a few nests,then the other night siting in there having a cold one I spied a mouse running down the edge of the wall,thought o.k. Trap time waited a little bit heard a little squeal in the corner ,pulled back a box and found a 12" copperhead snake living in the corner eating my mouse, problem solved,sat back down had another beer. I just don't want to pi$$ off my mobile mouse trap,lol.Then the other morning lifted up the garage door and grabbed the bottom of the door to lift it up and felt something odd,looked up and a 18" black snake was coiled around my arm,they are not poisonous,but love eating mice also.

Ya that was a eye opener, luckily it was cool out and he did not want to move fast,still not a fan of snakes though.Years ago when I lived at the family farm we had a old stone foundation for the house,basement was really nasty,had the service guy down there fixing the furnace, well after about 10 minutes done there he came flying out the door without his shirt,and he as haulin ass, I said what happened to your shirt,turns out he was crouched down to work on the furnace with his back to the wall,said something touched him on the neck and went down his shirt,turns out it was a milk snake,they love those old stone walls,I had to in to get his tools and shirt,never saw him again.

I tried the Bounce sheets in the GMC motorhome.
In the spring time I found a cute little mouse nest made of...Bounce sheets.

 Ya same here with Bounce. I've used Moth balls or crystals and that seems to deter them.

You just can't beat a good mouser cat in the shop though, if you don't mind the mess on the floor in the morning.

Never mind relying on old wives tails like bounce sheets and gamble your interior. Put a mouse trap or two at each tire and be safe.

I've used a couple methods that seem to work, odd as they sound.

1 - pour Coke or Pepsi, Dr Pepper, any carbonated drink onto a saucer. Leave the saucer on the floor somewhere out of the way. Replenish it now and then. You should find swollen little fur-bags her and there if your cat or dog doesn't find 'em first. Apparently Mice and Rats can't belch, they just blow up and suffocate.

2- punch a wire through both ends of an empty aluminum can and knot the wire at each end so the can spins. String the wire across the top of a 5 gal bucket which has 3" of R.V. anti-freeze in it's bottom. Secure the wire to the bucket with the can suspended and centered.
Put a dab of peanut butter on the can, put a stick from the ground to the lip of the bucket where the wire is attached.

Mice will climb the stick, tight-rope across the wire, and jump on the can to get the peanut butter. The can spins, the mouse falls and drowns. The R.V. anti-freeze prevents freezing if it's an un-heated space and has the added advantage of off-setting the odour of decaying rodents.

Lastly, a couple beer and a powerful BB gun with the scope off my 303 can provide some entertainment but it's not recommended in a concrete block building. No-body is that fast, lol.

I heard a buddy at work one day telling us about sniping rats in his poured concrete crawl space with an illuminated miners helmet and a 22. He said the first shot ricocheted about 8 times before he could back out the access hole, and he thinks he pooped a little in the process, lol. I sprayed coffee out my nose when he told us. The rest of my day smelled like Folgers.
