How to keep the mice out?

Got all types of traps / poisons set in the barn, but still have issues with mice nests in my equipment at camp. Seems they love air cleaners, and tight spaces.
Any one have any recommendations that work?

What I normally do is for the air cleaner I put a thin piece of wire mesh metal over the intake tube and wire tie it on. That always keeps the vermin out.

Do you have power all the time? I have good luck with those ultra sonic repellents. I like the little one that go in an outlet.

I stuff a bit of steel wool in some of the tight spaces and crevices.

I had mice build a nest in the muffler so now I just shove a rag into it.

we use moth balls that come in small mesh bags. Usually 2-3 of them come in a box. I put one under the hood of the mower and on the engine of the 4wheeler. I despise the smell, but seems to do the job.

Are we at camp yet?
