Stink Bugs!

Our RV got infested with stink bugs over the winter and we are still finding them two weeks later on our spring trip. The RV was closed up tight and extra foam on the bottom with screens over all the vents. Can bugs get through the Coleman Mach Air air conditioners or the Max Air vent fan? We just keep finding them!

Supposedly any slit bigger than 3 millimeters and they can squeeze through. Very doubtful they are coming in through the a/c.

Yes..they most certainly can. I remember when we had a pop-up and were camping. Decided to go into town for a bit. Came back to the CG that night and found literally hundreds and hundreds of them inside. Took hours to rid them.

They can live inside without food or water for months literally.

We camped up in Kingsport Tn a couple of years ago and brought home hundreds of them.
Tried to exterminate them all but found them for months afterward.

And your fans in the kitchen and bathroom. And we even have covers over ours. And they can squeeze through the windows while closed.

Take a water bottle with a little water in the bottle and and use that to catch them. It will keep you occupied for hours and give you some satisfaction every time you catch one.

Better yet, get a deep baking pan, like a disposable aluminum pan, fill it to about 1/2 inch of soapy water. Put a desk lamp over it and let sit overnight. You'll be surprised how that attracts and catches stink bugs.
