My biggest problem here in MS are the beatles that move
in by the thousands to spend the winter, they are so small
there is no way to keep them out, then I use a bug killer
spray and then later sweep them up and they do stink and
they do bite you. Any one have a solution for this pest I would
like to hear it.

check out this website. Been using this stuff for 3 years - it is amazing. spray once when storing and pressure wash in spring to clear off the oils.
No mice in RV.

This is what we use,too! We have used Bounce dryer sheets, but we'll also give Snuggle a try.

For the past 18 years I have been using Oil of Peppermint. I pour some in saucers. I place one in the bedroom , one in the bath, and two in the living and kitchen area. I have never had any problems with pest, except a bug here or there. I just ordered a 16 oz. bottle on Amazon Prime today for 33.99. Great price. It is usually in the 60.00 price range. Hope this is helpful. By the way my camper sets out side and is covered. You can reuse what is in the saucers when you open your camper up.

on my zinger, I always used "Fresh Cab" from tractor supply. They discontinued it for a while but I understand it's back again. I've never had a mouse issue while using this product which smells like pot pourri, smells good.
If i put the stabilizing jacks down, I put a sock filled with moth balls in the bottom "Y" section of the jack to keep mice from climbing up.

Here, I am sharing a detailed guide to keep pest away from your RV:

Keep your RV completely clean. There shouldn't be any food grain at the food or corners. Mice love the dirty and dark corner, so try to clean corner appropriately.
At the end of camping, remove all food from your RV. In other words, get all food out and wash every sticky place.
Have you listened about insect screens? Please install insect screen at the entry points of all food keeping places like refrigerator etc. Secondly, you should also install them at hot water heaters and furnace etc.
Here’s a tip about using mothballs. Instead of scattering loose pellets around your RV, place them in small covered bowls and poke holes in the pot. They’ll stay contained while still emitting their repelling powers!
Mice poison could also be used in the case of excess of mice.
Cover RV holes.
Cover you power outlet with good sticky tape.
You can also try any ultrasonic product to keep them away.
Fresh Cab repellents could also be used.

We use Irish spring bar soap placed through out the trailer near any potential access areas and in the storage areas. It has worked so far and then we a clean smelling trailer in the spring and soap for the year.
