What is a good way to keep squirrels and other pests out of our motorhome that is parked?
By Norma from Bethlehem, GA
Close up all openings. However, if you are talking about the engine compartment there is no way to enclose the bottom of the engine. My suggest is to buy a Havahart live trap from the local hardware store, trap the critters and release them about 10 miles away. You won't get rid of them completely, but you can control the population.
Try Fresh Cab. Works for about 3 months and has no poison. I know it works for rodents I'm not sure if it's labeled for squirrels. Check with the company to make sure.
I would imagine if you keep it shut up, squirrels wouldn't get in it. I have squirrels that climb the screen on my patio door, and they never manage to get it open, so they can get inside.
Thank you for your suggestions. I will try this. I don't think they come up in the engine, more towards the back.
Maybe mothballs would keep them out where you don't want them. We used them in a cabin in Michigan to keep the mice out.
These devils ate a hole under my rig, ate everything in my cupboards, ransacked the place while I was gone ( I live in it so can't remove all the food) they even chewed thru thick plastic. I've covered holes but they still find entry, mothballs are not working, or squirrel repellent either! I am moving my RV to a diff spot.where I had no issues .
