Ticks Spiders

Hi
Having had a transplant 2 years ago I am embarking on a new venture of caravanning. Having bought a newish caravan and seen close up how many spiders have been living in/on the van I wonder just how seriously I should take spider bites and ticks. Saw recently the story of Matt Dawson http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-40973709 and the affect it had on a healthy person it can only be a concern to me. Any feedback from post transplant patients? Stay strong!

Can you get it fumigated?

Then anything in it right now is dead. As for when you are camped, wouldn't think it's any more of a chance Isi than a day out in the countryside.
