Mud Dauber/Flying insect Screens?

In my area we have a problem with mud daubers everywhere. I recently installed the screens on my camper but was a little concerned about the placement of my refrigerator condensation drain hose. It was sticking out of one of the louvers on the Dometic Refrigerator, just hanging down about an inch. When I installed the screens with provided zip ties I just zip tied the hose to the screen with hopes that it will drain. I did not want to cut a hole in the screen if it will work the way I did it. The only problem I see is that the draining water will now run down the side of the trailer.

Has anyone done this or something different? Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated...

those lil buggers (among others) are a problem here in TexUS too

on my previous 5er, I did stick it out the screen a bit just for draining - just need to make sure they don't build a nest in my drain hose

I cut mine around the hose as well; the screen fits nice and snug against the hose too. My hose actually had a perforated plastic cap plugged into the end that would prevent them from getting in. https://www.walmart.com/ip/RV-Designer-Collection-E378-Plug-for-Frig-Drain-Hose-Pair/154749015?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=3706&a did=22222222227048182864&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=& wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=146926976589&wl4=aud-261800282100la-321704723197&wl5=9009703&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl 10=113500026&wl11=online&wl12=154749015&wl13=&veh= sem

They are a problem in my area as well, and I know first hand that they will build a nest in very tight spaces. I had a nest in the water ejection port (way smaller than the refrigerator drain hose) on an outboard motor.
