How do you even hit 7 mice all at once. Like did you find them in the corner of your room or something? Lol

Here's a couple of things I've done in the past. ONE---moth balls! I buy a box of moth balls and put some in a little plastic baggie--then put the bag in my tank bag, side bags or under the seat. I also do that in my wife's convertible when it's stored during the winter months. Works great and have never had a rodent problem. Only problem is they Stink!! Second, So I read on a different forum to use those dryer sheets--the scented ones. The mice hate the smell--and then at the end of the winter--take them out and our bike smells all nice a sweet!!!

Also put something into the exhaust exit to keep insects and critters out of there.

was building a log cabin and had all the logs premade in a jig i had set up and had them sitting out for a few months waiting for foundations to be built and such and was moving them. picking one up i saw them all snuggled up in some insulation under the log so i set the log to the side and whammo. bye bye mouse family.

You just deprived some larger critter of substance. ( That old food chain thing. )
Arenít you ashamed?
