Default Are ants a common thing while living the RV Life?


When I picked up my 2720, I noticed under the sink the previous owner had ant traps and some bug spray

Is this a normal thing? I am seeing ants in my TM, I am in a warm climate (Florida) and wanted to find out what other people do.

Beside the basics of keeping a clean area, any other tips ?

I did read online that you can put Comet around the contact points (wheels and front jack) because ants won't cross over that stuff.

We use diatomaceous earth around the outside of the house. If you sprinkle it around the tires and the front hitch jack, it should help with the ants climbing up into the TM.
