Mice in my car

We have a car we use as a spare so it sits for periods of time without being driven. We live in the country and have a problem with mice taking up residence in the trunk. Anyone got any ideas how to keep the pesky little mice from moving in?

Get a cat.

Good old fashioned 4-way mouse traps. Moth balls usually repel rodents, if YOU can stand the smell…

Outside “farm cats” work great, but overfed house cats are usually useless.
