 Field Mice Attack

Over the last 3-4 weeks my cabin has been raided by mice. I've killed a total of 10 over that period. I found were they entered the basement and blocked it off,next day or two they re-entered at the same spot. They're beginning to do some damage to the basement door and they found their way into the eave above the porch.I have 5 traps set and poison in a couple different places. What else can one do? Why my cabin basement? We don't have any food stored?

They are looking for a warm place to hole up for the winter. There may not be any food there now but I am sure they will carry you some later.
Moth balls will tend to make the space less attractive. Making the place mouse proof is near impossible unless it was tight to start with.
We had mouse wars in our cabin every year.

There is a liquid called, I think, Ropel which is supposed to deter them from nesting in areas where it's sprayed. I haven't used it but it might be worth a try.

2 words .......... manx cats. In addition to what Eric and Ken stated, these animals are mouse hunting machines. I have two. They are always catching mice, moles, and voles, even an occasional rabbit or two. Other measure you might want to take are to make sure any food or food stuffs you have in the basement are sealed/wrapped up or in substantial containers to keep the mice out of it. Even then, like Eric said, they are near impossible to keep out. Best I have been able to do is keep them at bay. Wink yeah right

Ro-pel will keep them from chewing on the door. It is a taste deterent and does not affect animals that don't chew.

I use a combination of traps and poison. There are also electric zapper traps that are supposed to be very effective. Mark put up a link a while back on the electronic traps.

Cats are a good alternative if they know what mice are and what they are supposed to do with them. Some cats think food only comes from a can, so it is good to get a farm cat.

Stuff openings with steel wool. Mice don't like it and won't pull it out. We had our high mouse population a few years back. A neighbour rigged up a pail of water with a ramp and bait on a tin can strung on wire across the top and that got about 50 mice that fall. Works pretty well for mass production unless you're adverse to mouse drowning. Our yard weasel did it for us that year.

We have the same problem every fall here too, maybe the mice are feeling older, it seems that every fall they've had enough of camping outside and think of me as a wonderfull host.

Luckily I am blessed with a Jack Russell terrier who thinks it's great hunting the little critters. He even takes it upon himself to keep our little patch of the world as free from squirrells and chipmunks as possible. With the exception of one rather tenacious chipmunk who lives in the landsape rocks out by the pool, he has mostly established about a 75' wide critter-free zone. Now if I could just get him to spend a little more time in the shop, and a little less time curled up by the fire....

Seriously, use the ultra-sonic devices, they work very well and take no attending to like traps or poisons do.

Best of luck.
