Plumbing vent pipe cap? (critter filter)

I'm about to have a open 1 1/2 inch vent pipe sticking up though the roof.

My RV sits quite a while each year, and I am wondering how I'm gonna keep wasp or other critters out of the vent pipe and still let air in and out.

Or maybe just lightly install a solid cap and un-cap before I leave the house each trip.?

Just So you folks Know, there will be NO black/GreyTanks on this vehicle, Just drain pipes that go from the toilet, sink and shower to hook up point.

If you live in an area with mud daubers, you might add a circle of screen wire to one of these:

Putting a unvented cap on will be forgotten or you'll have to climb up on the roof to remove it. I believe in KISS (Keep It Short, Simple)
