You own a Jeep AND golf clubs? What are you, some sort of pervert?

The last time I took my Jeep to the golf course I got arrested. Of course that was before Tread Lightly was popular.

You don't have a stick lying around the house? Even a ruler would kill a little mouse.

I have field mice (big ones !) in my wood plie at the side of my patio... I sit here at the puter and I can can see em scurrying across the patio to the dog dish ! two nights ago I got some "TOM CAT" poison food blocks and put two of em under the wood where they run. No more Field mice....
Problem with that inside the yeep....you might not be able to find em, so they might stink up the place.....They like to build nests in the dash and chew on wires, and chew on the under side of seats.... You could try some of those sticky paper mats that trap em.... Traps are most practical....Cheeze or Peanut Butter..... "BH"

Try Moth Balls they hate the smell and will leave on their own. We used them in the boat and it was stored in the hay barn with hundreds of mice and we never saw any mouse sign. Lots of moth balls in the motor compartment too.

Several years ago I found my place was infested with those little mices and discovered this when I was watching TV and 4 of them were watching it too from below my couch. My response was, "You want to watch this, or do I change the channel!?" That night I was fast asleep when I had a funny sensation that something was twurling around on my pillow and hair. When I reached out to grab that sucker, he did a 'Mighty Mouse' launch off of my forehead and landed 12 feet from me and sprinted into the kitchen...WTF!!

So the next day I set up some traps with cheese and Peanut Butter. The cheese didn't so well, but the PB was what they like more...

... Long story short... use Peanut Butter to trap them suckers!!

Straight to a limited, tactical nuclear response.

Won't be able to drive your Jeep for a few 1,000 years, but you'll be rodent-free.

Put bread down first on the trap so when it gets stale it will be harder to get out, cover with peanut butter!
