That sounds like a good plan. Since you already have the pest guys coming by, then you don't have to mess with doing yourself. Let them handle it.

Cat never goes into RV.
Kills them outside before they ever get in.
And finds their nests.

That's like I said about having black (rat) snakes. The snakes can get into a nest that a cat can't. They also will keep other varmints, like moles, squirrels, and rabbits, out of flower beds and gardens as well. But they won't pur if you pet them.😆

Thanks
Years ago, a pest controller showed me an inexpensive and effective rodent ridder. Feed them a mixture of Plaster of Paris and peanut butter and replace the mixture regularly with fresh dabs. They eat it and it solidifies in their stomach and renders them desperately unable to eat or drink. If you remove all loose water sources, rodents will leave and seek water elsewhere. While ingesting small quantities is not poisonous, the mixture should be kept safely away from small children and pets.

We camphosted in the high desert of wyo near YS a couple years back. Mice were a real problem. even had a packrat take
up residence in our vehicle.
Our dogs woke us up chasing mice in the camper most nights.
There are many mitigation reccomendations posted here.
Try all of them. we had electronic
plug in devices,poison,victor traps. I sealed up all the holes i could find.and peppermint pellets
Bounce dryer sheets (original scent only) works as well.
I had tomcat blocks in my basement. Chipmunks carried them out and put them on the lawn. I found 7 blocks on my lawn after i watched my dog eat
one. (they taste like peanut butter) A tblespoon of salt on the
back of the tongue will induce vomiting. An injection of vitamin k from the vet and 10 days of vit k pills. the dog was fine. Vet said i was lucky i saw him eat it and acted quickly.
All of these methods will help.
and each has its merits. A combination of all is the most effective. there are also 5 gal bucket drowning traps that are quite good. google it. they are easy to make and require you to
dump a 5 gal bucket with a mess
of dead wet rotting mice periodically. They are persistant requireing the same from you.

I tried that, but the mice just made a nest in it.
