This is what I found when I pulled my cover off my boat. It gets worse, they chewed all my wires that ran through the gunnels. I am on a chipmunk rampage. I've tried sealing them out and they always get in somewhere. Any advice?

IF YOU DON'T MIND THE SMELL, A SMALL BOWL OF MOTH BALLS IN EACH END OF YOU BOAT UNDER THE YOUR COVER. I HAVE USED THEM AT KENTUCKY LAKE TO KEEP THE OTTERS OUT OF MY PONTOON BOAT, IT ALSO KEEP OTHER CRITTERS OUT SUCH AS SPIDERS AND MUD DOPPERS. I'M INFESTED WITH CHIPMUNKS AT MY HOUSE AND THEY WORK KEEPING THEM OUT OF MY FISHING BOAT. THE SMELL LEAVES PRETTY QUICK ONCE YOU OPEN THE COVER. ALSO HEARD DRYER SHEETS WORK, BUT DON'T LAST LONG IF DON,T WORK GET A HUNGRY CAT
GOOD LUCK
