Anyone keep their camper in storage and have an ant problem? I know that they are a problem here in general (especially in the summer) but I was wondering if there was anything you could put down under the camper to keep them away. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Dana, here's whats worked for me. Inside sprinkle 20 MuleTeam Borax on the carpet and in all cabinets. Use a paint brush to dust it into cracks. Outside put a dog flea collar in all cabinets fridge, water heater,power cord and storage. Sprinkle some of the Borax around the tires. Get a small can of the spray foam and seal all openings in the under carraige. Have'nt had any creepy crawlers in a coach in a long time.

Thanks for the great advice, we will be sure to try them. Except for the anteater, we have enough pets in the house already

Even though I spray outside the trailer, around the vents, tires, and stabilzers, I would still get these teeny, tiny ants on occasion. Was driving me crazy! Now I use RaidŽ Ant Traps throughout the trailer with much success.

Ya, I know what you're suffering from, I found the little buggers running up the power cord and TV cable. Seems every year it's the same routine, early season is okay, as the summer progresses, they must be getting ready to store food or something like that. Then the workers start foraging(long recce's) until they find a food sources, run home and tell the rest.
