    Had a question for general area

    I wanted to ask a question and it would not allow me. Said I didn't have enough permission to start a topic.

    It wouldn't allow me in the other area.

    I have mouse droppings in my camper. Just a few. Is this a problem for a lot of people when parked for winter? I put out some PB traps but was wondering if there is anything people do for preventative. We do not store food in our camper either.

    I had mice camping in the rig, but since I've been spraying the frame and anything that touches the ground with MouseFree, they ain't been back. Also controls crawling insects from climbing aboard.

    Re: Had a question for general area

    For the last 2 years while gate guarding in Texas, we've put the white rope lights all the way around the rig, so that anything that touches the groundis inside the rope lights, & leave them on 24/7. We never had any mice in the camper, also we never saw any snakes, but I don't know if the rope lights had anything to do with that or not. Both times we were in areas (basically in cow pastures) where we "should" have had mice. However I don't know if you'd want to do this while storing the rig for the winter, could run up your electricity bill.

    Just to follow up, here's the link. The stuff isn't cheap, but it DOES work. I bought the 2-gallon set, with the sprayer. I've sprayed my rig twice and still have plenty to do it again this year. You don't need to apply it heavy and spraying just the exposed frame and struts seems to do the job. It also helps if you've previously sealed up all holes and gaps with expanding foam. I had done that during our first season, but they still found ways in. I use my 3-gallon air nailer compressor to spray it.

    A rodent can enter any opening that is the size of a dime or larger. look under your rig and chances are you will find openings where gas lines, water lines, etc. are not completely sealed that you can close up with foam spray or caulk.

    Re: Had a question for general area

    It's just so annoying. I have set traps and still have caught nothing. I will check the bottom which will be hard due to the "arctic shield" and buy the mouse free spray... My wife and I worked hard to buy our first camper and these free loaders are trying to ruin it!!!!!!!

    Peanut butter works very well in traps.
