    Default No mice this year!

    For once no mice!
    We have a newer trailer and usually get mice in the winter. This year we decided to park it in our machinery shed....people thought we were nuts. Apparantly mice are worse in sheds? We got a bag of lime powder from work and basically did a "chalk" outline all around the camper.......no mice! My friend brought hers out here but wanted it outside in the farmyard.....she had mice.

    That is a really cool idea! Of course I would have put it in the shed....mostly to save the roof from heavy snow (at least around here!) but it is a great tip to know about the lime. Congrats on a mice free camper!!

    What if we made a line of lime powder around the house and shed? Is that just wishful thinking?

    If nothing else the grass would be nice and green where you put the lime. We have mice terrible this year.Even now in the nice weather.
