I use these Victor electric auto-resetting mouse traps. THEY ARE THE BOMB! Much reccomend. Kills em and stacks-em like cordwood. Pricey but worth it.

Mouse traps won't work. Next to a forest or field, there is an inexhaustible supply of them.

The wheel fences do work if properly constructed and used. Best if over 15 inches tall. Must be slick metal. Don't need a binder clip if you hem an interlocking fold (170 degrees in fold on one side, 170 degrees out fold on the other, they interlock quickly.

My brother has a hangar next to farm fields. Harvest season is the worst. The mice fences do work.

Cats have their own problems. They like to jump on planes and scratch them. If you declaw them, not very good at catching mice. They will usually only catch 3-4 per day at max, and they will leave them in bad places.

Your best bet are the fences. Don't park the plane too close to walls or other structures the mice can jump from.

How'd you know the mouse was a broad? :)

She was wearing a dress.

Never had mice or small rodent problems in my Tennessee (KSRB) hangar.
Found large black (round) well fed snakes on two different occasions over the years there not paying rent, but took up residence in the T-hangar.
One lived up the blow shoot of my leaf blower kept in the hangar....ask me how I found out....! :hide:
Maybe my snake problem took precedent over the rodent issue.

d-Con had worked pretty well for way back in the far corners of my hangar, by my back-wall-mate's light-blue V-Tail. Hi Greg! :peace:

Then, the Gov't prohibited the loose bait like d-Con that rodents liked to gobble up and die. The mice wouldn't get far, and dry up without odor. Now the bait is all sold in glued cubes that even a starving mouse won't gnaw enough of to get a belly ache. With the glued bait cubes, mice probably eat a lower dose of poison. I'm afraid the mice might make it farther into Greg's hangar, possibly into the plane before they die. :pullhair:

These green poison cubes seem to be worthless. No signs of nibbling. I've killed 4 thus far with a cheese it in the middle of a sticky trap. I ordered a "walk the plank" sort of mouse bucket. If I could find any snakes or cats on Amazon Prime, I'd order them too.

What’s the deal with sticky traps? Whack them over the head with a shoe when you find them?

My brother's mice barriers:

Detail of the closing hem:

To install, wrap around tire and join the hem as shown. Reverse to remove. Very quick and no fooling with fasteners or clamps that interrupt the smooth surface.

He reports they have been quite effective and has no evidence of mice in the airplanes (he has 3, Cessna 140 main gear shown) since using them. Steel is better than aluminum. Extra weight keeps it on the floor and it gets less dented than aluminum. Should be at least 12 inches high.

His hangar is surrounded by farm fields full of mice. Harvest season is the worst.

There is a whole sub- culture on YouTube on various clever (and cheap) ways to catch mice. Most of them are lethal. All of them are entertaining.

My hangar floor a couple years ago -- our ants are trained to attack, kill, and completely eliminate mice..

I have no food sources in my hangar, except for the peanut butter on the trap. My hangar has leaky barn door sliders, and backs up to a river, woods, and cornfields across the runway.

The 5-gal bucket trap works well and is very low maintenance.


I also have a black snake living in the walls of my hangar... that keeps the mice and wife away :D
