Its been bothering me to think that mice can climb into this one hole I know about. So my project today is to fix it. *of course there are probably many other accessible holes for mice to get into but I know about this one*
The area is where the electrical chord goes down thru the floor and leaves a gaping 3" hole!!! The plan> SEAL HOLE
the tools> Sewer cap secure and ear muffs for boat engine.
The outcome --------------SUCCESS

This looks very similar to what we used in the Navy to keep rats from climbing aboard. They were called rat guards. One other thing they say works but I can't prove it is dryer sheets. We put them in every compartment and cabinet/drawer in our coach and never had a mouse aboard. Don't know if that was the reason but it sure seemed to be.
