Mice in portable

8 posts in this topic

I'm sure this question has been asked before but here goes again. I just got my portable out to get ready for tomorrow and found 4 nice holes about the size of a tennis ball in the canvas!!!!!!!!!! What can I do to keep the mice out when I put away this spring?

Try moth balls.

Better yet, store it indoors in a basement away from the mice!

Get it off the ground if possible. Otherwise set some D-con in there.

I have a Clam Classic (5600) and a Frabill XLTwin and when season is over I take canvas off and store them in Rubbermaid tote boxes with covers, in the rafters of my garage. I also throw in some mothballs. I have never had a problem.

Just a quick note, I had the same problem this year and to fix the holes I bought some iron patches. They worked great. It took a couple of days outside set up to get rid of the mouse pee smell.

kjgmh,
Good idea on the iron on patches!! I never even thought of that. What did you use to iron against?

Thanks for the responses, I'll get it up off the floor of the garage this spring and I'll add a few moth balls.

I had my wife hold a 2x6 on the backside. I put a patch on both the inside and outside. This way they did not stick to the 2x6. I used pins to hold them in place. I got them at Walmart and were about 90cents a piece.

A friend of mine had the same problem 2 years in a row. I suggested storing the cover in a metal garbage can,no more problems after that!

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
