    I have a newer fisher plow. I took the plastic cover off the module, solenoids and wiring harness on the plow. The wiring had been frayed from mice. I taped it for now but have ordered new harness. How do I keep them out for next year? Thanks, plowking....P.S. I have a cat but he likes squirrels more then mice.

    Moth balls, mint, sticky traps, fabric softener sheets.
    I personally have only used the moth balls and traps.

    I stuffed fabric sheets in my skidsteer instrument cluster after they ate thru wires in there; been about three years now and seems to have worked.

    I keep my plow in my garage. I have always kept rat and mice poison in there just for this reason, I wasn't really thinking of my plow but I was worried about my wife's car and the mowers.
