I have issues at times in my shop (outdoors). Mainly with spiders and ants. This past winter I did have a few mice visit me which was a first, but my fault for leaving birdseed out. I set a gauntlet of glue and spring traps and after the first week had no signs of mice. Never caught one in the spring traps but every glue trap had a mouse that got off. I could have made a small mouse coat from what was left on those stupid glue trap. However they haven’t returned since.

I have had bees fly in the shop but they usually just fly out or up towards the windows in the gable. Spiders and other insects I started spraying every other week and now have no issues. Keeping a shop clean seams to be the best solution for me. I now just keep a can of spray and hit the door area and any hard to reach places with spray every so often.
