don't use moth balls. you won't get the smell out. dryer sheets work for me, but you have to change them after they dry out. some say they don't.
try putting steel wool into the holes. they won't eat through that.

Use Fresh Cab, I've used it in my boat and classic vehicles now for about 5 years-no problems! It's bits of corn in a scent pouch that has natural oils on it. I believe the active incredient is balsam fir oil. They smell great and actually work. Look for it at tractor dealerships or farm supply stores. Cost is around $13 for a box of 4 packets.

I like the glue strips.It's kinda fun to listen to the mice scream when they get stuck to them.Pay back for getting in the trailer to start with.My firm rule is if you come in the trailer,you better bring beer.Never had a mouse bring beer yet,so they get what they deserve.

Someone told us to use whole cloves to keep the mice away. We have put a handful in baggies and put them throughout our trailer. We've done this for 5 years now and so far, no mice!

Up date on an old thread. I bought the fresh cab. Put 6 bags around the trailer. Mice ate the peanut butter in the trap right next to a bag of fresh cab. Trap worked good, cab didn't.
I went back to my bounce drier sheets and traps. I had to try the cab. just didn't work along with a lot of other stuff I have tried.
