I am storing the 5th wheel in a pasture. What do you use to control ants from getting into the trailer?

Don't leave any food in the trailer.

We have spread Comet around all of the points the trailer touches the ground. Later we changed to Home Defense Max and spray the landing gear, the tires, the axle (as much as we can) and the frame beside the tires.

We also cover all of the openings with duct tape to keep mud daubers out. It is especially important for the furnace. Fridge openings, water heater, etc.

Ditto on the comet! I also put a thin layer of grease around anything you cant cover with the comet such as the sewer receptacle if the the sewer hose is hooked up,because they will crawl up the hose and into your RV.

Also worry about mice. For ants I spray the area with ant killer.
