Surprise in "new to me" trailer

Hello Everyone,
I was just going over our new to us trailer and found the previous owner had some unwelcome visitors aboard ...this is the outside panel for the refrigerator. Lucky for me no-one was home. As you can see from the picture, there's lots of room for them to get in. I think maybe I will somehow attach some steel screening to prevent this in the future.
John

Some use the poor man remedy and just hot glue some vinyl screen on the inside of the cover.

A couple of years ago, as I was readying a former camper for the new season, I removed the propane cover located on the tongue. Surprise! live hornets. Later that same day I removed the cover on the spare tire. More of the same.

Last week I found a birds nest inside my fifths pin hitch area.

I guess a person should tap those locations with a long stick before getting to close, if it has been sitting for a while. I know I will be from now on.
