New to RV storage

Yesterday I was checking out the storage spot I picked out and noticed the camper next to me had about 8 or 9 rubber snakes under it. I can only assume that this is to keep rodents out.

Does this really work?

Should I be skeptical of this storage facility?

I did pull any weeds around and on my spot. I also phonnied up a few bucks and sprayed the area my camper with be parked on with a kill all ground clear.

I will be storing a Alpha Wolf in the spot.

Well not sure on your location but here what we did here.

Had a robin building a nest every year on our gutter down spout. Put a rubber snake on the window sill about 4í below the nest. Robin never been back.

Had squirrels eating flowers out of a large pot on our patio. Put a rubber snake in the flower pot. No more problems with squirrels.

Most storage lots do nothing for critter control... mice, rabbits, insects, etc.

Pulling weeds should help, but the winter 'nesting' is approaching. Search this website or the internet for mice control tips. You might want to check the rig frequently for signs of intrusion. A bit of control before it gets out of control is worth the effort.

If you are able, you might want to crawl under that rig and look for any holes bigger than a quarter.

Good luck.
