I’m not sure if you have ever dealt with a mouse problem in your home or RV, but those little guys can be a huge problem and we gathered up the best ideas for how to keep mice out of campers, garages, and houses. This is by far one of the cheapest (and most cruelty-free) method to keep the critters away. No need for traps!

We love to camp and this 1976 Scotty trailer was our first camper. We have made so many awesome memories in this cute little thing. Honestly, I’m not the camping type so my husband has always tried to glam it up a bit to keep me interested in going on our camping trips. One thing that is a sure way of keeping me away is critters in the camper!

Now that Fall is here, mice will find their way into RV’s, homes, and garages to keep warm so now’s the time to use one of these ideas to keep them out of your living space.

How to keep Mice out of Campers

Place a bar or two of Irish Spring soap in your trailer. Critters absolutely hate the strong smell of the soap, and will stay far away from it. You can also leave the bars of soap in your garage, basement, or anywhere else you suspect pests are hiding…

  1. Find the hole they are coming in if possible and use Duct tape and put 1 or 2 Mothballs on it and poke them in hole so the smell is not in camper .Mice hate the smell of mothballs this has worked for us and put small long piece of tape on mothballs to keep them from falling off but not enough that it covers them up and rats and mice can’t smell.We have even put them in our Garage but you can smell them for about a month but worth not having RATS
