The wasps must get in through the finger slot where you open the door.
Does anyone have a solution for this?


Pete.

wasp

I loath Wasp ! I had a bunch get in my previous SOB trailer, that came through the heater vent. I cut screen and put over them, as we never used the propane heater. Took me weeks to chase them out of the trailer. Under the tub, in the clothes hamper, in the under-sink cabinet. Annoying.

I put screen over the heater vents in the AS, and on the inside of the hot water heater cover door, and refrigerator access access panel.
Wasp are always looking for a place to build. IF you are not careful, inside the tailgate of your truck!


Have a good one

Drive your coach more, that keeps me opening that door far too often for them to get started in there! Joking.

Buy a couple 'large dog' flea collars, cut them in half.

Install one half in your battery box and propane tank enclosure, and the other in the gas tank fill area. Another half goes inside the hot water heater enclosure.

No more wasps for at least 4-6 months!

I have not heard of that. Sounds like a simple solution to the problem.

Get some killer bees as pets?

Or this little pesky rascal should do the trick.

Or put some mothballs under the cover, and when the engine is low on pep, throw one in the tank
(Kidding on in the tank, not sure if that will kill your motor)

Yes, Chinese Ebay; could be a bit of trouble getting past CBP though as they could constitute a threat to national security.
