What kind of dehumidifier do you use? I haven't heard of doing that, but sounds practical.

It baffles me as to why they cut such a large opening for some of the things that go through the floor of a camper. Some holes on our rig had some kind of gray spray foam that the mice seem to enjoy eating. I removed all of that and replaced it with GreatStuff foam as well as hitting all the places they missed. We go through a box of Bounce in the fall and I run a trap line in the outside compartments and right inside the main door so they're all easy to check. Since fixing the holes around the landing gear I haven't had any.

After using expanding foam and steel wool to close off all openings that I could find, I set up glue traps all around the trailer. I also use an ultrasonic pest repeller in the basement.

Go to the dollar store and buy a box of 100 bounce sheets. Spread them out in the trailer everywhere. This has worked for us for the past 3 years.

Don't know if works for sure but I have heard moth balls under the camper helps them from wanting to be in that area.

I would try it if I was having a problem. I am killing gnats in mine. Seems the heavy duty fly swatter is the best for that still.

Mouse problems

Have another thing to share on mouse control over the winter months while the trailer is in storage. We have used Peppercorns now for over 10 years and haven't had a mouse yet. Lots of trails in the grass after the snow disappears but non inside. We just walk though the trailer and take a bag of the peppercorns and toss them everywhere...in cupboards, under beds, anywhere you can toss them. Apparently they don't like them. Then in the Spring...vacuum them up and you are good to go.

I did the dryer sheets one year and the mice made a nest out of them. At least I will have soft, nice smelling mice with no static cling.

We use Freshcab rodent packs, one box of 4 packs does us all year. Available online or at most hardware and farm supply outlets.
