Re: Mice in the engine bay!!

mice crawl up on the engine when cold they are most likely nesting up under your engine cover, if you are in a garage take away food source bird food stuff like that you can try bounce dryer sheets by the tires ,living in northern minnesota they are a pain .

Re: Mice in the engine bay!!

Use one raisin in the trap and it will lure many mice to their end. Use a small dish of peppermint flakes from a tree hugging store. Mice don't like the smell and it smells better to humans than moth balls.

Check the bottom sides of the fuse boxes, they could get in there if they're small enough, and it would be a great spot for them and a terrible spot for you

You can buy pure peppermint oil at pretty much any health shop.
Caution: Do NOT get it on your skin, and definitely nowhere near your eyes.

Works for ants too.
