By doing this you'll divert the mice from the bad food supply (your wires) and to the good food supply... stuff that smells like cheese! (yet sadly it will be their last meals).
I went through this last spring. Not only getting into the vehicles, but one found a way to get into the house and enjoyed the use of my fiber-glass insulation as a guest house.
Few boxes placed strategically outside, along with mouse tack strips and we caught the little feller. The boxes have a lot of nibble action on them... but no more mice nests in the engine bays or mice in the insulation.
Yeah they placed a poison box just outside
Still haven't caught anything with the traps.
2 traps were triggered bait was eaten but the rodent got away.
