Hi

Heard about a very good electric mouse deterrent for parked up Motorhomes. A little critter chewed up a box of tissues and made a real nest! If anyone has tried such a device woukd like to know.

HAPPY CAMPING FORB THE 12 TH!

Don't waste your money. There is absolutely no scientific evidence that these things work.

Ditto the so called repellant sprays.

General advice on motorhome anti-rodent precautions can be read on the following two links

https://classicmotorhomeowner.com/mice-in-your-motorhome/

‘Electronic’ rodent repellers can be 230v mains-powered or battery-powered. There are comments about the effectiveness of such devices here

My house is in a very rural location and in Autumn each year mice decamp from the surrounding fields and take up residence in my house’s attic. Years ago I installed a mains-powered electronic repeller in the attic, but it never seems to have had any noticeable effect in dissuading the mice from taking up residence. I just put traps down in late-Summer and regularly check them. In 2020 I think the traps killed about 8 mice in the period up to Xmas. At present there are 6 traps in the attic (baited with chocolate spread) but when I last checked none of the traps had been triggered.
