How to Protect Your RV from Mice and Other Pest Problems 


Household pests don’t limit themselves to houses. RVs are very attractive to rodents, insects, and other uninvited stowaways.

Why do bugs and mice infest RVs?

A motorhome or RV can be especially appealing to pests trying to meet the same basic needs as any other living thing: food, water, and shelter.

Most people don’t live in their camper full-time, so pest problems can easily take root long before they're noticed. If you leave any food stored along with your camping equipment, hungry rodents will sniff it out. Clothes moths can be attracted to bedding, blankets, curtains and upholstery -- especially if it hasn’t been washed after it was last used. Spiders love living in dark, undisturbed, places like a parked RV. Some pests are drawn to the lack of activity when your RV is in storage, but other pests become a problem when you move onto their turf. No matter what is causing your pest problem, there’s a simlple solution to help you prevent pests without resorting to harmful chemicals.

DIY pest control for RVs.

Protecting your investment and preventing damage is a big concern for RV owners, because the initial purchase is expensive, and repairs can add up quickly. If you only use your motorhome seasonally, we’ve prepared storage tips you can use to help winterize your investment before putting it away for the colder months.

If you’re parking your RV for a shorter time between weekend camping trips, keep these pointers in mind:

  • Repair holes in screens or loose weather-stripping so pests can’t get in.
  • Use caulk to fill small cracks or steel wool for larger gaps around pipes, vents, and outside water heater and reefer vents to block pest entry points.
  • Clean up after yourself so no dirty dishes, food crumbs, or sticky spills are left behind.
  • Get rid of clutter that creates hiding places for bugs and other pests.

When using your RV, prevent pest problems with these tips:

  • Inspect the site before setting up. Look for ant hills, wasp nests, and low hanging branches that might come into contact with your camper -- rodents and insects will use any point of contact like a superhighway to get inside.
  • Bring the noise. Some wildlife, like snakes and spiders, are irritated by the vibrations of loud sounds -- just try not to annoy your neighbors!
  • Make a stink. Go ahead and grill up some onions, or better yet, eat them raw. Garlic, basil, and other aromatic herbs can overpower the sensitive sense of smell insects and other animals depend on, causing them to avoid the area.

Interview With RV Dealership Owner | Mice in Campers

We've been friends with the folks at Riverwood RV for a number of years. They've long known the importance of protecting campers from mice and the benefits of using Fresh Cab rodent repellent.  Tom, the owner of Riverwood RV, was kind enough to sit down with our team member Becky and talk about some of the problems mice can cause, what needs to be done after finding mice in an RV, and what does and does not work for keeping mice out

To learn more about Riverwood RV and what they can do for you, check out their website, or visit them on Facebook.  Don't forget Tom's sage advice, "People that like their stuff and don't like mice like to use Fresh Cab."



Watch this video as Guy Fitzgerals explains how much trouble mice can be in a motorhome and what it's like to open up an RV that's been protected by Fresh Cab. He'll show you where mice might be if they had nested in the camper over the winter months, and where he put Fresh Cab pouches to keep mice out. Guy also reminds us of the importance of using Fresh Cab year round so mice don't move into a camper that is parked for a few weeks between trips. If you've ever had problems with mice, or think you might, Guy Fitzgerald knows, "Fresh Cab is your answer!"

Botanical rodent repellent is the best way to get rid of mice and protect your belongings, but it's important to follow a few simple steps:

  • Remove any food from the vehicle before winterizing. Seeds, nuts, and anything of the sort, will attract rodents like peanut butter. Not only do rodents like to eat the food, they like to make bedding out of the packaging and plastic wrappers are perfect for that.
  • Leather and cloth seats are appealing to mice. It doesn't matter what kind of interior you have, they will destroy it. Mice can chew through anything that is softer than their teeth. Leather, interior upholstery, and coverings definitely fall into that category.
  • Mice also enjoy chewing wires, filters, and mechanical components because it feels good on their teeth.
  • Tarping the top of your boat is awesome to keep it clean, but won’t do much for mouse prevention. Mice can fit through openings as small as a pencil eraser, or just chew a nice sized hole to move through.
  • Place Fresh Cab® pouches in and around the perimeter of the inside of the boat. For jet skis, place the pouches under the cover, under seats, and entrance to the engine.
