It’s inevitable…if you choose to live in wild places you can expect there to be night creatures who want to live with you. I’m glad to say (knock on wood) we haven’t had a mouse get inside our living area yet but we’ve had mice get into the basement and the ceiling via the basement. It’s not a good feeling being invaded like that and it makes you feel “unclean” too! I for one dread the thought of harming other living things. Every creature has a right to life in my opinion but lines must be drawn. No mice are welcome to join Blue and I in the motor home.
Since our arrival in Zion six days ago I’ve trapped three mice in the basement. The use of rodent poison is out of the question because it enters the food chain and has the potential to kill other wildlife and raptors. Poison can also kill a rodent in an inaccessible part of your RV leaving the body to smell and attract ants and flies which would also die in the “house”.
I put traps every where I suspect a mouse will go. I’ve already caught one at this location on the holding tanks in the basement. I check all the traps every day. It’s a good feeling when nothing is found in the traps.
This was the last glue trap I used. It’s slow and inhumane. Twice I’ve had to deal with live mice which were forever stuck to the glue so it would be a desperation event to cause me to employ them again.
