When it begins to cool down, I put moth ***** around the walls (inside) of both garages and many near the door edges. The wife hated the smell but since she's gone, I don't have to listen to her gripe anymore! I use two boxes, one in each garage.

Later!

I use the Moth ball/blocks to keep the skunks from nesting around here, they definitely smell better than the Skunks, plus no more rodents.

Ditto moth *****, but they must be the “old fashioned” type with I believe naphtha, or whatever the smelly chemical is. Stu

I have no answer = my question of the Century is, How in hell did they get into my pressure plate. Yes there is
a clutch cover with only a 1/8 drain hole?? 1956 T800 I discovered this cause of my starter bendix and the
bendix was stuffed with well you all know the smell. So then I dropped the cover or pan and holy mackrel. There is no way anything bigger than an ant can crawl through that little drain hole????????

They get in through the clutch fork hole in the bell housing

Looks like I am going to try to find moth *****. I have been fighting the mice for years ( and they seem to be winning). I even have a big snake living in my shop, I keep hoping it will get them.

Thats funny!

My wife bought rubber snakes to put in her flower beds to scare away the destructive chipmonks and squirrels! It works. Would it work for mice?

I put dryer sheets in a farm truck one winter, many of them. Next spring they were covered with mouse droppings. Maybe because I used a generic. I like the barn cats idea. I have found mice will stash products like Decon, I always worry about pets or children getting into it.

To continue. I don't know why it only posted only part of my post. But the mice were nested in the mothball bag. Nest full of babies!
