Mice in my cargo box on my 700 Kodiak

Just to let all of you know that if you don't snap closed your cargo box, in front of the seat, the mice can and will get in there. I did not have mine open, but I did not have it snapped tight and they built a nest in there, in just a few days.

I'd check the rest of it out since mice like to chew on wiring and it doesn't take them long to do a lot of damage

Yes, that is a good point, I am amazed at the amount of things they destroyed that I carry in that compartment. Thanks for the tip.

OK so maybe there is a link on mice, but how do you keep mice out?

Go down to the store and purchase a box of moth balls. Then get a old pair and I mean a old pair of your wife's or girlfriends panty hose or plain old nylons and put the moth balls into it. Then hang them on and around the wheeler when you are not riding it.

Or get a couple of snakes.

I've heard moth balls work to get rid of all kinds of wildlife, including skunk.

OK, that sounds simple, it is my best option as my cat only eats Pate, and is very lazy!
