I have a mouse nest in the bottom of my oven. I have cleaned it out many times, but they keep putting it back.
Now when I cook in the oven it stinks. What can I do about them?

You really do need to get rid of the mice! We've had problems, too. One method, is to check around your water faucets in the kitchen and bathroom, and stuff them with fine steel wool, I've heard mice don't like this, and also use peppermint extract, or peppermint oil around those same areas. We found dead mice on our furnace filters, but we couldn't afford to get an exterminator. Also, our phone kept going out, it turns out the mice had chewed partially through our phone cord. Mice can get through an area about the size of a dime, sideways. Good Luck!
Mice don''t like mothballs. If you can put the mothballs under the house our even outside around your house the mice will not only leave but won't be back for many years.
Put dryer sheets like Bounce around. You can cut the sheets in half and place in areas where you think mice might be.
peppermint oil does not work
my dog has been my best mouse catcher.
I've killed one with a trap
my stove is done for the smell is under bearable :(
