Mice control

Test
biglentil's Avatar Sep 3, 2022 | 20:46 1 Seems like if a guy isnt always proactive on mice control they get out of hand fast.


Here is what I do:

1. Poison lots of it. Red blocks, green blocks, rattak all of it.
2. Pail moustraps with green antifreeze and a spinning bottle covered in peanut butter.
3. Newest thing im doing is an undercoating spray gun filled with straight peppermint oil @90psi, spray the firewall, under the cab, door jams, in the cab under the seats, under the dash down the air vents....also soak cotton balls in it and leave em under the seat.
4. Ozone generator in vehicles that have had mice in the past, just leave it for 24hrs and smell is gone. Dont leave it for too long or rubber and upholstery will crumble in your fingers.
5. Steel wool any spots they can get in.

Ive heard straight lime powder on the ground around equipment can keep mice away too. Any tips?

Our tool truck has a bare steel cab now. All the linings were so urine soaked you couldn't drive it.
I do keep traps, poison u name it.
Surefire permanent fix.
Find a way to buy and release weasels.
One weasel will eradicate every single mouse in a large yard site. Reply With Quote

Sep 4, 2022 | 10:00 8 yep calcium chloride or lime. make a 6 in wide strip around all equipment. make sure to drive the tires over the calcium powder. Burns there feet and they won't cross the strip. That and cats... they are a necessary evil Reply With Quote

Sep 4, 2022 | 17:30 10 We have lots of cats. And dogs. I have never had a mouse do anything more than die in the vehicle fan. Never in combine, never in tractors. I do know we often have weasels under old wooden buildings etc. Most farms no longer have old wooden building to house weasels any more I guess? Reply With Quote

    They do. A mouse turd and you can get her written off and upgrade to a new one. I’ve been looking at getting one and putting it up in our wild lands in the bush by the lake for the kids to stay in when they leave and come back to visit. Reply With Quote
