Mice in barn
I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but here goes...
It appears, judging by the droppings, that mice have been visiting my barn. Currently there is not much in the barn and definitely no food. But this barn is in the woods so I was expecting that I'd find some critters in there eventually.
I'd like to keep the mice out of the barn if possible. Any ideas on how to do this? I have a large sliding door that leaves a small gap for mouse access. Has anyone had any luck sealing a large sliding barn door?
Eventually I am going to finish part of the barn, but until then I'd like to be able to put things in there and not worry about mice making their homes in it (like a couch).
For now I'm going to go with traps. I also may try planting mint, I've heard mice don't like it. And I will build a barn owl nesting box in hopes of luring owls to do my dirty work.
Any other ideas???
