    How to stop Ants getting into the RV

    Hi Forum

    We are planing our trip down south with visits to New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville and KY and the Bourbon Trail, working my way round the RV sites ( I use RV reviews
    http://www.rvparkreviews.com/ ) to find a good site and a lot of the sites say they had a big problem with Ants getting in to the RV!
    I have had this once and it was hard to get rid of them, they head for the food larder. Can I ask the forum if they have any way of stopping them from getting in, they must get up the supports or water pipe.

    We use Comet. Ants will not cross a line of comet.

    Just sprinkle all around the camper!

    Here's another tip:
    Put vaseline on all the cables, cords, and hoses that lead into the camper, that will keep them out.

    Around the jacks, we use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. I'm often concerned when camping in state/national parks and using pesticides such as Raid or Home Defense. Make sure to check out the rules on using chemicals. However Diatomaceous Earth is a natural organic pest control measure.
    **If you'd like to try a really safe, non-toxic to human or animals treatment, Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is worth a shot. We use this both around the house and RV. As I understand it, the powder dries out their exoskeletons and thus kills them. Can find this product at Lowe's.
