I had the hood of my car up the other day to check the oil. Look over to the right and there is a nice fat brown mouse sitting on the inside edge of the fender. It disappeared down an opening.
Did my darnedest to get lots of water down all the openings. Don't know what else to do ???

You should set a trap or 2 inside your car, or better yet some poison so it can die in your car vents.

Count in the shop is now 40, no more in the house thank goodness.
I'm working on mouse proofing my truck.
Buggers got in a second time this yr and nested on top of the cabin filter.
Taking the plastic cowl off and hopefully putting heavy duty 1/4 inch galv mesh over the intake.
only problem is getting the windshield wiper arms off, they are bolted on and looks like I need some type of puller.

So far, I've caught 8 mice in the traps down cellar!

Only got a total of 11 through last winter!

I don't know how many I have picked out of the oil pail trap in the tractor shed!

Only caught 2 chipmunks in there, the rest were mice!

 :D :D funny thing happened to day was working on the skidder with the air cleaner hose unhooked and well you guessed it it sucked it through the hose and in  the turbo at 3/4 throttle  :D :D looked on the roof to see if I could find any fur feet or bones but nothing the turbo must have been a good mouse grinder  :D

We had one get in our gravity feed water tank at camp and got sucked into the 3/4 plastic line.
My pard and I wondered why the water was running slow but after a while, fur and bones came out of the tap.
We shocked the system with Clorox after that.
Mouse harvest has slowed here recently, must have the population thinned out.
