CI, i had the problem with mice coming up through the bottom of the cabinets where the water lines came through. caught a few when we first put the mobile home in. what i did was get some of the thin aluminum flashing and cut in circles large enough to cover the space between the water line and the bottom of the cabinet. then i snipped the center just so it would fit around the water line. used a few small wood screws to keep the mice from pushing the flashing up. did this to all my water lines in the house. problem solved. no more mice in the house. i always keep a few traps around just in case one gets lucky and gets in but then it will be living on borrowed time once i find it is in the house.

Thanks Mr. Slim. I live in a rural place on the lake and have a lot of gardens and a small orchard. There are always some field mice around looking to eat the crops I grow and store. When cold weather comes many of those mice try to get into the house and normally when they get in is into either one of the garages or the cellar all of which don't freeze but are cool. Old style snap traps usually take care of them.

Google the rolling mouse trap. Roller hooked up to a bucket of water. They go out on the roller and it spins and they fall to the bucket and drown. Might try building that.
