I have had some correspondence from Paul Medcalf,one of my followers,about how to avoid infestations of ants and mice :-
"I was chatting to a work colleague who has a Swift double axle he was telling me
that one year he came back to his van after a day out to find ants everywhere in
the van kitchen work tops etc he followed the trail and discovered where he had
pitched was close to an ants nest and someone told him to spread vaseline on
the caravan stabilisers this would stop any thing creeping into the van ie the
ants or possibly a mouse !!."
During the summer we have problems with ants at home.
They devoured a piece out of the bottom of our conservatory door so they can be quite destructive apart from anything else.
