Mice and rats in truck
« on: October 10, 2018, 10:13:40 AM »
Hi All:
If you dont drive your truck regularly and park it outside, think about checking for mice and rats settling in your truck as fall is here. Although I check my truck frequently, a rat decided to settle in the cowling the other day. In just a couple of days it managed to load a small wastebasket full of acorns in the windshield wiper duct underneath the plastic cover.
Regards,
Henry

Solution: Glue trap under the truck with a chunk of Reeses Peanut Butter Cup.

Peppermint oil is a great deterrent, and smells good afterwards!
