Ants

We don't have a mouse problem but the ants are real bad about getting into our travel trailer. I can find no entry points. I just keep spraying ortho home defense around the tongue and tires. It helps a little.

We haven't used our TT in over 9 months since I was laid off from work (working now but at a much lower pay grade). I removed all food from the TT last winter and yet we still had mice in the TT over the winter and during the summer. I can see mice coming in during the winter for shelter but can't explain why they come in during the summer if there is no food source.

At any rate, I'm going to try the approach I learned when I briefly worked for a pest control company. We sealed all outside holes with copper mesh and mortar caulking. I have seen mice eat thru expanding foam so I avoid it now after using it for years. Seal the mice outside and use live traps for the ones left inside....at least that was the approach we did with stick and brick houses.

I don't have a rodent problem now, but don't want to get one either. I am going to try an ultrasonic device. Kim Gass and StevWb can you both tell me the make/model you bought from Amazon? I would be very much appreciative!
Thanks,
Butch C

i haven't tried other repellents so I can't say its the best. I can say in Maine mice move into the house come winter. My husband hates cats. This seems to be a good substitute cat and we have had it 11 months

I bought T3-R Mice Repeller at Amazon, nice compact unit, no mice in our 2015 Greyhawk for a year now, leave it on in storage with shore power 24/7....
Good reviews on Amazon.

I went to Menard's and bought a couple gallons of Rodent stopper. Sprayed the whole underneath of the unit and around all the tires. Soaked cotton balls in the stopper and put them in every single drawer and cabinet. Resprayed around the tires once a month. It is stored inside a building. Not so much as a single mouse turd. The Rodent stopper has a nice minty smell.

Once the snake gets all the mice, get a mongoose to take care of the snake
