mice mice mice...keep getting in car!

OK...So I rarely drive the old girl, but I do on occasion. I cleaned her all up from deep storage and mice had had some fun. Big next in glove box and trunk.

Later this summer I find a new nest in glove box ()*&@#$@#$ Poop and pee trails here and there. CLEAN IT ALL AGAIN.....

Then I found poop today on the carpet....


Is there a common way for these little beasts to get into an SVX? cabin filter or something??? Just surprised they keep coming back even when I use the car.

This may sound stupid, but I have heard that dryer sheets repel field mice. Seems that they don't like the smell. I don't know if it works or not. I never tried it. So go to your local supermarket and try it. It is cheap enough.

Check out Victor Scent-Away
I have used the pouch bags, and the little plastic ones. I hang one from the vent above the glovebox, one off the turn signal switch and place one down by the heater ducts behind the console, and I hang one on the ABS stuff under the hood.

They actually smell kinda good too in a refreshing way...

I have 4 cats. Mice have a very short life expectancy around her!

Worth every penny. I had $250 worth of damages (two hood insulators) in two years from mice, not to mention poop. I store the car for the winter season in the car jacket.....no mice, no smell, not even dust.

Also moth balls around the garage work pretty well, but they smell.
