I found mice had been behind the soundproofing on my ZT at some point in the past - before I bought it as I also found the sponge bonnet buffers had been nibbled. I thought they just got tatty until I dropped the sound proofing.

Last year as I well I had to help a friend with wiring faults on a bus as mice had got behind the dashboard and nibbled through various wire.

When I had problems with a mouse indoors before I used a friendly trap with chocolate and it seemed to work quite well.

Think I might give the adhesive sound proofing pad option a go. Anyone know of any which are a) reasonably thick (I don't think the 2.5mm Chinese jobbers are up to it), and b) sufficiently heat resistant?

Adhesive sound proofing stuff like Dynamat is crazy expensive - way more than mousetraps and peanut butter.

But is the peanut butter enough to stick the mousetraps to the panel?
