Thank you all for the input. After reading Louisville Joe's comment on Sea Foam, I ran across this article. . . Sea Foam it is. I like the idea of the ultrasonic rodent repellent rather than traps, will look into this.

Next question - My intent was to leave it on the jack for easier mobility and space savings . . . any concerns with leaving the suspension unloaded for 6 months? Thanks again.

I keep my RG on my Sears yellow jack. With the bike standing straight up I can get my Tahoe in the garage also. But, I just pump the jack handle a few times to get the bike standing straight up, the jack is holding some of the bike's weight and it is stable but I'm not "unloading" the suspension and my tires are still making full or just about full contact with the garage floor.
