Great Stuff - Insulating Foam Sealant with PESTBLOCK
I was getting ready to FINALLY seal the Glacial Package under body panel (the gap where it connects to the frame) with Great Stuff and came across this Great Stuff product with PESTBLOCK. It is supposed to deter mice, ants, roaches (Palmetto Bugs here in Florida), just about anything. So I just finished sealing the under body panel and a few other possible entry points. I was surprised to find about 5 openings large enough to let a LARGE mouse into the under body. I believe I read that it has a terrible tasting formula. I purchased 2 cans at Home Depot, one can ALMOST made it, but I needed to open the second can.
Well, so far in the last 3 years we have yet to have any issues, but just thought I would take a little preventive maintenance. I will keep you informed if we encounter anything. Currently we have been using Peppermint oil soaked cotton swabs in plastic shot glasses in the storage compartments and in the cabinets. This way if I lose our shot glass I know where there are more. The peppermint oil and the dryer sheets combined seem to be doing the trick.
Although, the lizards (about 3" long) usually hide in the tongue section of the TT frame area, boy do they get pissed when we stay in the Blue Ridge mountains, like "We were kidnapped". but fun to watch.
Those of you encountering mice may also want to give it a try and let us know how it works.
