Never used to give much thought about mice,but after watching a show about the Hanta Virus it changed my view of them. After a season where they thrived ,people were dying ,CDC was called in tied it into the rodents. Seems they urinate around their travels,if you sweep up and it becomes airborn you can get it. Rats carry all kinds of stuff with their fleas,even bubonic plague. Now if we go to a cabin or somewhere with mouse droppings ,use bleach and masks to clean,or if too much don't stay there.

Hi there. We were at Powell in '13 in early March. Very beautiful, not many boats out. Lots of room to park. We had several calm days and one day of 35 knots on the way back to Wawheap. Then a day of 72F and that night it snowed 4 inches! Pictures in my album. Great trip but be prepared for anything. Enjoy

Thanks for all the replies. It sounds as if Lake Powell is the best option, and we should bring mousetraps and frisbees! Laughing

Several people were talking about mice coming on board when I was at Lake Powell this year. I didn't have vermin protectors, but I did smooth the sand all around my land line and checked for tracks in the morning. Nothing. BUT, I looked closely where we had sat in deck chairs the night before. Lots and lots of cute little footprints. To quote Mr. Jinx, "I hates meeses to pieces."

As for winter boating on Lake Powell, be aware that mice do not hibernate. They just get hungrier.

The worst thing here, that you just can't scatter mice traps around your boat. All you can do is just apply chemical repellent on the important pieces of your equipment and leave some ultrasonic devices for the night. It is said here these ones are good for indoor use, but I don't see why you shouldn't try it on your boat.
