I used this when I had the problem last year. It worked like a charm.

I used the same. I also have started sprinkling seven dust around the tires, tongue jack & anything else that may be touching the ground.

I also spread Sevin Dust around the tires when the RV is in storage to help keep out the ants, spiders, and other pesky bugs.

Here in NE Fla. no food, no water means absolutely nothing to ants. They make their selves at home anyway.

I use insecticide granules from Home Depot. They create a barrier that insects won't cross and they last way longer than Sevin.

We have great luck with SafeGuard bath soap. Keeps the little critters away and lasts a long time. KK
