    Default I hate them meeces to pieces!

    Dang mouse keeps getting on top of the backhoe engine and chewing a hole in one of the fuel return lines. He has done it twice on the same hose in the same spot even though I parked it in a different place after the first time. I moved it to the other side of the house for now. I guess I'm going to have to put some mothballs in there but I hate the smell as bad as the mice do.

    After a problem with mice eating my car the mechanic said he found a spray oil to hose everything down. But I just built a garage to fix it.

    Put a trap baited with cheese where the mouse is causing a problem. I wire the traps to something so they can't run away with them. Mouse poison would work too.

    I don't know if mothballs with repel a mouse but I know they don't repel squirrels. Been there tried that.

    Mothballs didn't work for me.
    I dumped a couple boxes all around inside my small shed to repel mice, they walked right by them and built a nest in my mower.

    The mice around this part of the world don't seem to mind mothballs at all.

    Don't spend $ on cheese. Save the old hose and use that!

    Seriously though, moth balls do not work. Traps or poison. If they have a nest in the tractor moving won't help...

    I bought Ropel spray for my wife's hood insulation after mice or squirrels chewed on it. It's a taste type repellent, not too hard to find. Seemed to work.
