Q. Several times when we store our tractor mower in the barn for winter, the mice seem to nest and eat the wires in the motor, causing expensive repairs in the spring. Surrounding the mower and motor with mothballs seemed to prevent nesting and damage for a few winters. But this spring, dead mice, wires chewed, etc. What do you recommend to keep this from happening?
