No power yet, although I'm working on that as well!

I've also tried the ultrasonic deterrents in my home and they didn't seem to have any effect. I think I will look into using wire mesh, and probably burying a treated 6x6 to have the door rest on. Having 2nd thoughts about keeping a vehicle in there, although they haven't disturbed my aluminum fishing boat yet!

Why cant you just try traps to catch all the mice? I think that will work out.

Best mouse repellant is a barn cat.

I hear skunks like to dine on mice. Just thought I'd offer an alternative choice of mouser.

We have lots of barn cats , they help . But we still get mice . The old school mouse traps work , but Gotta keep them out of reach of the cats . It's a never ending battle .
