RV’s and Rodents
So a few years ago I decided to purchase a camper just to test the waters on this whole camping (Glamping) thing. I bought an older version Winnebago and I allowed my employees access if I wasn’t using it. Well I upgraded to a newer version this year a Thor Outlaw and was having some work done by
RedWrench Mobile RV Service – 231-632-4150 Pete Schmitz
So of course he knows I’m the bug guy so he tells me about an RV he purchased. He said a few years back and was out on a RV site for about 4 months, when he encountered the rat from hell. See the rotation pics. It doesn’t matter on location because rodents are always looking for a new place to call home. Just look at the damage, thankfully it hadn’t got entirely to the electrical system.
So once again I’ll pass along a few tidbits of useful info from Dr. Bug:
If you live in a permanent home, it cost a lot less to prevent than correct the issue. One electrical or plumbing call-out is easily $500. Remember mice and rats urinate and spread feces everywhere, and if that is your attic or livable space you could be breathing it in. If you’re living in an RV the space is more restricted.
TRUST ME ON THIS, RATS ARE REALLY GOOD AT WHAT THEY DO. PLAN AHEAD AND TAKE PROACTIVE STEPS TO PREVENT.
