storage mold and rodents
I asked the other day about outdoor storage in Florida with the correct boat cover. Carolina skiff JVX 16) Since then several of the lots that offer storage have confirmed yes mold issues and rodent mess, sometimes damage. My first look says rodents may be deterred with mothballs and dryer sheets. You Tube shows pretty easy to use mold clean up products. Motor prep is more clear me to me. Any thoughts on these suggestions for cleaner storage?

Shooting rodents - not bad. I tried mothballs, but they didn't help me.

Well, I donít know how far can go your fantasy and if youíve even heard of mothballs - a remedy for rats...

Mix equal amounts of baking soda, sugar & plaster of paris. When the rat eats this they will naturally go and find water. Once the water meets the baking soda and plaster of paris the rat is doomed to expire. This is not a poison but a chemical reaction.

Keep this mixture away from your pets!!!!
