This won't keep them out, but will get rid of them.

You have a good eye.
I noticed that also. Hope it wasn't a cold day. They could have gotten sick.

I went a step further and unscrewed the floor vents in our 5th and put metal screening on the underside of the vents and screwed them back into the floor. Wasps or other insects if they get into the furnace can't get into the trailer using the floor vents.

This might not be such a bad idea for home... having fond memories of playing with marbles running down the ductwork when I was little...

I noticed yesterday that a wasp had entered the end of our awning. We do not put the awning out any more and now that my husband has passed away, I doubt that I will be doing so in the future either as it is just too difficult for me to handle alone. However, if there is a nest inside already, can I use that foam spray stuff at the ends of the awning and just let "sleeping wasps lie" on the inside? Any suggestions would be helpful. I have considered removing the awning altogether but that is probably not a good thing to do if I wish to sell it in the future. Thanks!

You can do as you will. Any insecticide will kill wasps. Soap will kill bees, but not wasps.

Installed regular window screen on our fridge intake. Cut into strips and used a hot glue gun to stick to the back of the intake cover. Being an intake, the temps will never get hot and any flow restriction will be negated by the two large fans I installed to draw more air in. The little %]}>#>]^s have been circling the camper all spring looking for a place to build a nest. So far so good.

Actually I kill wasps with soapy water as well. The first thing it does is coats there wings and they drop immediately. I trust it so much that I go under my 20x24 pool deck with a spray bottle a couple times each summer to spray red wasp, yellow jackets and anything else that flies and stings. Its awesome.

I used regular insect screen on my furnace/water heater/and frig vent. Cut the screen to size and hot glued it to the inside of the vent. Have done that on my last 3 6vers and have never had a problem.

These things work amazingly well.

We had a problem with wasps at our seasonal site last year and put a couple of these traps up. They work really well as once they fly in, they can't get back out. There are also directions online for making home-made ones with an empty 2-liter bottle.

As far as cleaning out nests, brake cleaner spray works great to kill them on contact. It also sprays out pretty far allowing you to stand a few feet away when you spray them.
