Two weeks before my last outing in the motorhome, I went to check the supplies and I noticed nibblings on some of our dry products. Roman noodles, dry pasta boxes and even some tissue boxes have been chewed on.
All of this was weeks since our previous outing and there were no problems between then and this discovery.
I did a thorough search of the Motorhome but found no signs of a new resident, no droppings, no nests, no squeaky sounds.
Not wanting to bring vermin with us, it was time for a act of desperation. A standard wallyworld mouse trap with a touch pf peanut butter as bait was in order.
I set the trap on the shelf under the sink.
The next day the trap was sprung, but empty. Not to far away was the corpse of the culprit...
Not a mouse, a Chipmunk
Then it all clicked together. A week or two before, my girlfriend noticed that a chipmunk entered our MH while I had the door open (as it normally is in the daytime hours in our back yard).
I figured that the critter left as fast as he went in, but I was wrong. Apparently the chipmunk likes our MH accommodations better than his backyard home.
Moral of the story is:
If you want to keep you private space, Private, at least close the screen door !
