That is your refrigerator access panel. The 2 black rectangular knobs in lower corners turn 90 deg and should be able to pull out from bottom first.

That is the guts of your Fridge. Critters can prevent it from working. Suggest you get screens for the vents. You should also put a screen on the furnace vents as well.

Where can I get some at? How to put it on? I'm in Casper Wyoming camping for another week.

Says you are in Texas. Wait till night or early morning. As previous mentioned screwdriver should turn the slotted portion 90 degrees and they should be able to slide out.

If me I would do above mentioned at late night wearing long sleeves and gloves without shining light into it and in early morning take out the panel unless it comes out at night and attack with wasp spray in the morning to kill the whole nest and remove it. Then put aluminum screen wire with duct tape to prevent it again. Make sure to get drain tube outside to not allow water inside the wall.

Where can I get the screen wire at? Do I duct tape it to vent or just over the insides?

I've also heard of people hanging flea collars inside the the opening behind the door on refrigerator & water heater. Just make sure it isn't touching anything gas or electric; won't work on furnace. You can buy screens at camper supply stores to fit everything.

If your going to spray use one that is in fog form not in a stream that way you won't have a big mess to clean out after.
