Rodents set up housekeeping in your RV? Or perhaps you'd like to prevent that from happening. Here are some creative ideas from fellow RVillagers.

Suggestions to prevent critters from entering

Prevention pays off. Keep those critters from getting in to begin with! Try foam spray and/or steel wool for small gaps, screening for larger openings.

Strings of lighting or small solar lamps could help, too.

Of course, a real live cat can assist with prevention AND removal!
