    Bounce Dryer sheets inside the car, I have been told to also use mothballs spread out around and under the car will help keep out them mice. Another one is the use of granular or powder Sulphur sold in garden stores, take a spoon full and place in a small cloth gather up the ends and seal then place around the area of the car where the rodents can get in and cause a problem

    I bought some good old fashioned (stinky) moth balls at Wal Mart the other day for a little over $3.00.

    I'm going to put them in my Derksen building and in cars to keep the mice out. I KNOW they work!

    My wife puts peppermint oil on cotton balls, this keeps them out of the house. I plan to try it in the car.

    I personally have used bounce dryer sheets in a hunting trailer,basically 4 walls and a roof lots of places for mice to get in.In the middle of the woods.We have left food on the table a couple times and left for the week.when we came back the food was untouched,No signs of mice at all.I have no idea why it works so well but it does.
    I hope to God when i die my wife doesnt sell my stuff for what i told her i paid.

    That's a good idea. About how many sheets did you use? So far the peppermint oil is working, but I like a back up plan.
