I have a lawn tractor that I use for lots of other things and the mice love to get inside it and leave behind mouse-house that prevents my tractor from working properly. I have put mothballs in socks and hung them on and by the tractor, but they melt after a while and the mice get used to the smell. Is there anything I can do to keep mice out besides putting it in an enclosed space?

Have you tried putting those disposable traps around the tractor?

Catnip is reputed to be an all natural mouse repellent.

Fresh Cab rodent repellent. Enviormently friendly safe around kids and pets. I haven't used it, but I know we sell a lot of it. I keep meaning to get some and then forget. If you put this into a search engine, it takes you to product information.

I work at a Runnings Farm and Fleet which is similar to Tractor Supply- so they may carry it for those who don't have a runnings near by.

Second vote for Fresh Cab!  Put it inside the engine if you can, just remember next spring to take it out!  :)

Thanks! I will definitely have to try this. Don't the mice just get used to the smell after a while?

I don't know, I think there is something they don't like in it.. I know I can't stand the smell of it and I haven't gotten used to it, and that is it just being on the counter

If you can't stand the smell of it on the sales counter, how could you handle it in the enclosed cab of a tractor?

I was thinking if the tractor is near an electrical outlet try one of the ultrasonic devices. Use an extension cord and put the device as close to where they nest as possible.   I have heard the mice get used to the noise if it is constant so put the device on a timer to go off  at various times.
