Put two traps in the garage.  Nothing yet.  Maybe that’s a good sign as no other signs of droppings. 

My mill is mounted to a cart and motorized, otherwise it would be in a tote as suggested.

If you have a cat around as you mentioned, even occasionally, that may well take care of the problem.   I've got personal experience, as do others I know, that any cat, even an old, blind lame cat, on premises will do.  The varmints somehow sense it, and don't take chances.

My mill is motorized and mounted on a cart as well. I sweep it off well (including the rollers) after each use with a clean paint brush and wipe the cart and all exterior surfaces with a slightly damp paper towel to minimize the dust.  Milling is done outside most of the year unless raining or snowing.  I also use a vacuum cleaner on it outside when I see residue on the underside of the mill....I condition my Grain before milling, too...just the way I roll and YMMV, of course.
