Moth Balls

I am winterizing our 2004 2499 and want to put Moth Balls in with the Hot water propane and fridge propane areas to keep spiders out but here in Canada they do not sell Moth Balls anymore just a plastic pack they call Moth Balls. Does anyone have a different way to keep spiders out of the propane flame area.
Thanks for the help and Happy Camping.

Fruit from Osage tree, somethings called monkey brain fruit or hedge apples. If you can find they're great at keeping spiders away.

I had good luck with Dryer Sheets. Drop one under the drawers and in all the cubbies, haven't had a vermin and/or insect issue in years.

Spiders

I've used Irish Spring Soap Bars, broken up into small pieces and placed in areas such as heater, refrig, water heater under cabinets etc. Try it, it works for me.

Good luck!

Never tried it but heard that cheap dog flea collars will also keep away the bugs. You cut the collar up into 1-2" strips and place them in the areas where you want to keep the pests away.
