Default little gray sonsabitches in my boat

I live n Danville va. a long way from water of any size. I lived in fla. moreheadcity, nc. fished salt water all my life. never, never had mice in my boats. now I got them in my boat. I put old timey mouse traps in the bildge but hard to climb in boat (I'm old with shot back). I put the little boxes in boat. still got them. how do ya'll kill and keep them littls bustards out of your boats ?? regards, richard

I've been using a Victor Tin Cat for years, but I think the bucket method is a lot more efficient, end results for both is they all drown.

don't put water in the bucket

use a steel bucket, so they can't chew their way out.

if you use water, they STINK as they rot

keep it dry, they will cannibalize and you never smell them, or have to empty the pail for a LONG time.

I used to get mouse nests every winter in the dash of my old tractor. I put a couple of dryer sheets in there and no more problem!!!!

+1 on the dryer sheets.

Find them cheap at the dollar store, use them liberally.

I guess I should be careful what I say... the mice have migrated from the woodpile to my pickup!

In the process, they seem to have developed a tolerance for dryer sheets...

Time to call my “friend” Victor!

I've used Moth Balls too. But if dryer sheets work...things will smell a bit better.
