I have an old garage with open front I keep two vehicles in. The field mice enter the engine compartments from below and chew the insulation and pack it to the heater/air blower motor compartment. I have tried pellets, cheese, peanut butter, traps, and nothing seems to work. They won’t even go to a trap. Their last home building costs me $142.00 to have the blower cleaned out. Anyone have any other suggestions, maybe those electronic devices? Thanks for any help…

my thoughts exactly get some country raised cats.If you live in the country keep them outside (No Luvy cat a well experinced Tom)let him live in that garage you will have no troubles and you may grow to like him.
Good Luck
