Just returned and I did stop at the local farm/home store. They had maybe a case or more on the shelf early last week.

Now, the shelf is empty with a sign that states: "Due to mfg production problems, we are currently out of Fresh Cab"

Sorry.

Maybe get some Essential Oil made by NOW and mix Balsam Fir Needle Oil and Peppermint Oil together and pour it on ground up corn cobs = make your own. I don't buy new every year, simply use apply a 10 drops of Balsam Fir Needle essential oil to the pouches from several years ago.

What are the ingredients in Fresh Cab rodent repellent?
A:
QUICK ANSWER
The main active ingredient in Fresh Cab rodent repellent is balsam fir needle oil, a natural insecticide and pest repellent. Fresh cab also includes a large number of inactive ingredients, including corn husks, lavender, sage and citrus. Fresh Cab works because mice and other small rodents dislike the way that balsam fir needle oil smells, making them avoid areas treated with the product.

FULL ANSWER
One of the main advantages of Fresh Cab and other botanical rodent repellent products is their non-toxic ingredients. Because Fresh Cab does not contain chemicals such as strychnine, warfarin or other poisons, the product is safe to use in areas frequented by pets or small children. Rodent repellents also eliminate the unpleasant odors associated with using poison.
Fresh Cab is most effective in small, enclosed areas. In larger areas, the product's fragrance becomes too dispersed to effectively repel mice and rats. To treat larger areas, the manufacturer recommends placing one Fresh Cab packet per each 125 square foot area. If this is not effective at driving rodents away, the manufacturer suggests adding additional pouches until rodents no longer appear.
Fresh Cab's manufacturer, Nixalite, asserts that its product lasts as much as three times as long as its competitors, with a maximum effective life of 100 days.

Irish Spring soap is what we use. Mice do not like it.

Get a cat?

Here are some tips. loveyourrv.com

We've never had micein our trailer, but we've had chipmunks in Colorado chew up the wiring in our pickup. I like the tip in the above link about putting rings around stuff so the mice can't climb it. However, I've seen mice in our field jump a lot higher than the rings he pictured.

Oooh, read the comments on this website. Seems like string lights may be a good idea. doityourselfrv.com

I read one tip to use peppermint. It's still available and not too expensive although it might be cheaper to make your own. amazon.com/Victor Scent Away

We like Ray,s site. He is very down to earth and soothing to listen too. We’ve just spread fabric softener sheets in and under everything but most likely we are just lucky because we live in an oak forest and we’ve had white footed mice in our glove compartments of two vehicle. Will watch your links!
