    I usually leave some mouse poison around the garage for them (near doors, along the walls). My hope/plan/goal is to "feed" them before they get into anything. So far, so good.

    Old School Trap

    Dave,

    This a great thread and will be useful. I just noticed a mouse night before last and used the old school method which worked perfectly within hours. Swiss cheese. Picture attached for reference.

    I use a little shredded cheese. They seem to like the smell of sharp cheddar.

    Peppermint oil repels mice. My son lived in a college appartment/house that had mice (surprise, surprise). They put down peppermint oil and it did significantly reduce the mouse population. So ... maybe put peppermint oil in the car and compartments. Note that if they are already in the garage, the oil may not make them move out. And peppermint candy doesn't work.

    There was a Barn Finder episode where he claimed using fabric softener dryer sheets worked great for repelling mice. Haven't tried them because, first, we have a great mouser cat, and second, don't want my car to smell like fabric softener.

    A bit off topic ... after so many years, and so many shows with the doors up, my D still has that "DeLorean" smell.
