Just a guess, but i would go to wallyworld and buy some scented mothtablets and you can get them in a lialoc fragerence, Check spelling, none the less, it's what we use when the rv is in storage and we never have small gritters about at all, $1.00 a box, takes about three boxes to cover the whole Rv from top to bottom and front to back. Good Luck!

We just were invaded in Rawlins, Wy and they are here in Buffalo Wy. They are called Millers and they invade once a year for a month. They are like moths but they don't eat clothes. I've been shooing them out and catching them in my hand and releasing them. Our cat enjoys hunting them. I opened the engine compartment and a swarm flew out, same with the battery bay. Last Sept in Pidgeon Forge Tn we were invaded by stink bugs that don't stink and move slowly. I wouldn't use any insecticides in my coach. The strips might help but they will disappear on their own.
