Mice in grill - how to prevent

196 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  GCoco
Anyone figure out a way to prevent this? Grill was cleaned and covered before the winter and opened it for the first time tonight to see mice inside of it.

Internet says peppermint oil but I've tried this in the past and it didn't seem to do a thing.

Hard to stop them. Obviously baits will kill them, but instead of live mice in your grill you will have dead ones. People say peppermint oil, moth balls, ammonia, etc. keep them away. You can try any or all of these, but the broad opinion is they don’t work or only work for a short period of time.
Put a bucket trap next to the grill, check it daily…..
If the grill is exposed to sun in the winter months they love to warm new house.
I have bucket traps running all the time. You can slow them down. Remove as much food sources as possible. They will often find homes near a constant food source.
I can send you some copperheads and water moccasins.

Will get rid of mice and rats. Makes opening or picking up things more exciting.
Oh no, that's definitely not a pleasant surprise! Dealing with mice in your girl can be frustrating. While peppermint oil is a popular natural repellent, it might not work for everyone. Have you considered trying other methods like mothballs or steel wool? They can be effective deterrents as well.
Yes, Just BBQ more.

seriously. I use my grills/smokers year round. Doesn't matter if there is a foot of snow on the ground... I'm still grilling.
no mice in the grill here.
Maybe they are there and you are drinking too much to notice
