I left it parked on the driveway with the slides out and there were literally hundreds of them in the camper. We vacuumed them all out and closed the slides. After a couple of weeks we had the same problem. If the camper is closed up tight, how are they getting in, especially in the huge numbers. I'm wondering if the slides aren't sealing properly. I traded in another brand of travel trailer with two slides and never had this kind of problem. Any ideas?
Not uncommon........the stink bugs here are getting worse.....Few in the trailer two years ago, last year hundreds in the camper this year we left the camper in Myrtle Beach to avoid the stink bugs..... We are in SW Virginia three years ago no stink bugs now thousands..... They will ruin a vacuum so a shop vacs the best answer..... Think we went from the moonshine capital of the world to the stink bug capital of the world.......
. In the house in the cars ,in the camper, thousands in the sheds............. They come in any tiny opening... Couple of weeks ago I stopped counting at 150 just on the front of the house...... Nothing wrong with your trailer just another import from China that is getting out of hand..........
