MICE IN TRUCK PLEASE HELP

so ive noticed that papers gloves and other things have been being ripped or eated in my truck. at first i thought maybe they got ripped on something in the truck but now im pretty sure there are mice in there and i dont know what to do to get rid of them. Ive heard dryer sheets they dont like and i guess ill try mouse traps but any other advice would be greatly appreciated! PLEASE HELP!!!

I had that problem in a couple of older vehicles, and went to Atwoods and got some baited sticky pads. Little critters thought they were getting a
peanut butter snack, and got stuck like flies on flypaper. Then fed 'em to
the dogs.

Mice? I like a good 12 gage, a short barrel helps in confined spaces... oh, in your truck... yeah sticky traps with peanut butter in the center. But a 12 gage if your serious.

I sell pest control supplies and +1 on the glue boards. Don't use bait, whatever you do. They will crawl off and die and start stinking. Snap traps are ok, if nothing else like kids or pets will get in them, where are glueboard is easy to peel off.

I'd do the sticky traps. Or drop a couple mouse traps in there at night when you park it.

I use the new and improved mouse traps, the white plastic ones with the red snapper. They work much better that the old wooden ones...

Cat in the cab will do the trick...just roll the window a little...not too much or the cat will leave.

Oh and you might want to put a litter box in there too.

Hope this helps.
