I had heard of that one before, so I decided to try it where I'm camped out on the prairie.

My parents have a toy hauler that we have parked in the side by a field, did this trick and bam no more mice droppings or any signs of them.
Little bastards snagged the soaps, used them in my outdoor shower, made a helluva mess, scarfed up my towel, and then, adding insult to injury, they left the bars on the ground, coated with mousie pubic hairs...
It's true! Why would I lie?

Fox urine/scent. You can get it at a decent sporting good store. I also use snap traps with pretty good success, just have to tie a little piece of frayed yard around the trigger and coat it with something good and otherwse have a clean tight space

Tom cat wee wee works well too!

BE CAREFUL with warfarin!!!!! It's the most common rat poison. It's a blood thinner. If cats or other predators (good as rat deterrents) consume the dead rat, they too get an overdose of warfarin!


Just a friendly reminder from your website paramedic......
