Love is in the air and sometimes in your hitch and under the awing on your slide

Birds just love to make nests in your hitch, so if you haven't covered the openings be sure to check before you hitch up! Same with your slide, if you leave it out! It only takes the little critters a couple of days to build a nest and not much longer than that to lay their eggs.

Send a message via MSN to FatDog

We had a nest on our 5er right underneath the front bedroom area near the kingpin.
Ms FatDog is an animal keeper, and we have close to a zoo at home. None of us can step on a spider at home, we are mandated to scoop it up with a sheet of paper and carry it outdoors to a green plant.
By the time we saw the little nest in our trailer, the little birds were flying the coop and on their way to catching bugs .

It was a well built little nest so Cordie was convinced their parentage was good.

Mike, Cordie, and lil' Zach

How about a large hive of bees ,located between the pin box and the over hang and side braces to the frame ,took two days to rout them out with spray insect for home use .Took about half gal .They flew out and came back time after time each time had to keep spraying them .They were yellow jackets. No stings just had them all around the area for two days until I moved trailer to storage For the summer till snow bird time. Skipper entry level over fifty years

The best repellant I have found for bugs and critters in nooks and crannies is a dog flea collar. I use a whole one in the fridge,water heater and power cord compartments. It should work in the pin box also. Get them for $1 at the Dollar Store.
