What Works For Us
Rural RV parking locations are where the mice live and sooner or later, they will try to get into your RV. Our first encounter, in our current RV, occurred in Fort Smith in the Northwest Territory or northern Canada. Being a small and remote community limited our mouse-trapping options to what was in stock at the local hardware store.
We did not want to use any poisons as the thought of a mouse diving and decomposing inside a wall or other inaccessible location did not sound smart. We purchased several traps but, at that time, had little knowledge of how to use them effectively. Two weeks later, we got to Yellowknife, NT where we had access to both internet information resources and a broader range of traps.
From this, I learned the best places to set traps and I tried a few types out, including glue traps. Effective positioning of the traps, along their natural travel paths, and glue traps soon produced results. Our first partial success educated us on the need to secure the traps so a mouse could not drag them away. Our second night using the glue traps caught the little guy who was quickly dispatched and disposed of.
Since then, and before sealing up our RV, we have had other mice get in but the permanent placement of glue traps, along their natural travel routes, stops them before they gain access to our living space.
