Critter cure
 
We stored our RW for the first time in 10 years & the storage lot at the rear of our spot are a dozen 2" holes in the ground, most likely ground squirrels, & I'm wanting to find a cure for them.
By cure I mean kill or drive them away permanently so they aren't wintering in our RW. I'm not able to be crawling around under it to plug ALL possible entry points at this time, so am asking for advise.

That RW is going to be very lonely without you this winter!

We agree Steve, it's definitely going to be a different winter. We are still trying to decide whether to downsize to a smaller vehicle/rv or find a summer spot to park the RW. We are really looking forward to being able to drive a smaller vehicle, we've been driving a dually as a daily driver since Jan '05.

Danny,

Here is a link to a product that I used this past summer to get rid of chipmunks that were overrunning our place. We use to have several outside cats which apparently kept the chipmunk population under control. But, when we started traveling more, we could not have cats anymore and the chipmunk population exploded. The were burrowing throughout the flower beds around the house and also around my barn. We tried several different traps and none worked. This product was recommend at one of the local farm stores. I dropped the pellets in their holes and around the foundation of the house and barn. It seems to have worked well because I have seen any chipmunks since the end of July.

Hope this helps.

By accident last summer, that's what I did. I became a "Sunbird". I found a spot in Wisconsin to leave the Redwood. Next summer I will pick up a touring motorcycle. I will keep the dually. I spent this summer in 70 degree weather, couldn't be happier.

If its moles or gophers, I use Sweeny's pellets in a cone. It actually works on squirrels too.

Thanks! I may use both just to be safe.
