Garage
they nest in my snowblowers during the summer and my riding mowers in the winter.

My Toro/WH was smoking a bit and I noticed some grass sticking out from the edge of the shroud covering the cylinder. Popped the cover off and found this mess.

I buy the Enoz brand (I think) box of mothballs. It comes with 3 ready to use bags that I just throw on the eng and one on the ground under it (if stored inside). If there’s outlets I use the ultrasonic plug ins

Haven't found the ultrasonic plugs to do anything. Had two in a room that's about 10' square and not packed with stuff or anything and still mice turds appeared in the room.


Mothballs would probably be better, or even one of the multi-use mouse traps and poisons to kill the bastards. No quarter given to rodents, dealt with enough nests in vehicles and equipment to bother now. That includes chipmunks!!
