Keeping Animals From Going Under a Mobile Home
Filter: All Articles Sort: Relevance

This question is for anyone who has ever lived in a mobile home: What are your thrifty ideas to prevent wild animals like raccoons, etc. from making their home under your mobile home, or worse, getting into the insulation or ductwork from the underbelly? I have recently had to add vinyl skirting to a mobile home which had never had any before. My neighbors with skirting always seem to have animal issues, and I'd like to prevent any problems if possible. Please help and thanks for any advice!

When we re-floored several rooms, we put in pipes with caps in the closets. The pipe is a pvc pipe coming out of the floor with a cap that is not glued on. A nail keeps it from dropping down. The pipe is just long enough to go past the insulation. Now once a year I pour down oil of peppermint into the pipes. Not a mouse or a mouse dropping since.

Our dog got a puncture wound and a 2 in. long slit in his skin from something in the back yard. This is a fenced in back yard. We've checked the fence for protruding nails, the swing set for protruding screws and all that's left is a trailer with some brush on it. Possibly he went under the trailer and snagged himself on the metal.

The vet doesn't have any ideas either from the shape of the wound. A friend suggested a wild animal attack, but that would mean a squirrel or a bird did it, and that's not possible given the severity nor the type of the injuries. So, what do you suggest that we put under the trailer (which is just an open wagon) to keep him from crawling underneath or near it?

Vet said he's going to be ok - drain out in 2 days and stitches out in 10. Poor fellow.

I'm sorry about your poor baby. That must have really hurt.

You also can get cheap chicken wire fencing & just fence it in.
