A plant-based, safe, non-lethal method to keep mice out of your rig

Keeping mice out of our rigs is a constant challenge to boondockers. Since we camp out in the wilder areas where wildlife is always present, and mice just love the dark confines of our rig's hidden places, many methods have been used to keep these rodents out--or get rid of them once they gain entrance (through a spot we obviously missed when sealing all suspected entry points).

Fresh Cab is the only Plant-Based Rodent Repellent registered for inside use by the Federal EPA and with a 100 day guarantee to work. If you have been disappointed by electronic pest repellers, are sick of the smell from using poisons, and are tired of baiting traps that don't catch the critters, try Fresh Cab.

Fresh Cab has been used by farmers, truckers, RVers, and homeowners nationwide to provide lasting protection against the most challenging mouse and rat infestations. It supposedly repels rodents for up to 100 days with a "woodsy" scent that you'll find refreshing, but they'll find extremely offensive.

It issafe around kids and pets hence there is no safety warning on the packaging. It is also environmentally-friendly and 98 percent biodegradable. The company says that nine out of ten Fresh Cab users come back for more, and it has been tested and endorsed by the Good Sam Club, National Home and Garden Club, independent labs, and farmers nationwide.

  • Effectively repels rodents for up to three months.
  • Safe around children, pets and wildlife
  • Easier to use than traps, bait stations and glue boards
  • No dead rodents to find and dispose of
  • More effective and less dangerous than poisonous options
  • Keeps rodents far away instead of killing them
  • EPA registered - All Natural, Biodegradable, "Green" product
For RVs, use 3 pouches for up to 30 ft. Place near water tank, drains, and cushions.

You can find a four-pouch pack at the RV Upgrade Store for $16.99.


  1. Have read mixed reviews, but if Bob recommends this I'll give it a try.

  2. I'm skeptical. I tried something called Mouse Pouch that was advertised and was to be used exactly like Fresh Cab. It didn't work at all.

  3. We have used this product for years, it works.
    Don't try to use the same bag for more than 6 months, it loses its effectivness.

  4. Brought a box direct from Company website, same
    product, lower price. Works great, had a problem
    with hidden mice, knew they were there, but unable
    to get close to them, used several bags in different places, mice left premises.

  5. For all you people who might think this is a new gimmick it is not (I am not paid to say this) My wife and I purchased a new 5th wheel from a dealer in Ny it was on their lot from May until they delivered the trailer to our seasonal site (they included the pickup and delivery I own a truck) it was infested with mice. The floor plan of this coach has a large storage and also a large open area behind the wall (under the stairs and kitchen cabinets) in the basement. Well the plumbing for the bath comes into the area behind the wall and the mice got into the wall and ceiling of the bed room and this product was the only thing that got rid of them! So I purchase the product direct by the case and also use it home. The best thing it is not poison so they do not die in the coach (or house) and it leaves a great smell that is not over powering like moth balls that a lot of folks like myself do not like.
