Thanks guys and gals for your in-put on this subject. Maybe I should come up with a new product made up of mothballs, spearmint, and Bounty dryer sheets. Market it under the name "Mouse-a-Way". LOL Thanks again.

I keep my trap pro in the basement in the summer and haven't had any problems with the vermin bugging it.

Definately moth balls.  Put in a small butter cup first.

I take my tent off my frabil ranger and put it in a plastic airtight contianer. I put the contianer in the sled and put the sled in the basement. I have never had any problems and mice don't typically eat plastic from the sleds. It has worked this far.

Yep, use a couple of dryer sheets. Never had a problem since. Makes things smell purdy too.

Get yourself a cat and place its food bowl near the shanty.  The cat will be in that area often to take care of the mice if they are around.

The problem with mothballs is you've got to kill hundreds of them for enough mothballs to do any good. Besides, they're soooo tiny.   :)

That's hilarious!!  Seriously,  moth balls, dryer sheets, liquid lysol and chewing tobacco all work to keep the nasty beasts out.
May your doorknobs smell of fish!!

Yep!  Any kind will work but, the leafy kind is easier to clean up if you spill it.  They won't come near the stuff.  Makes me really wonder about my bad habits ???.
