mosquitos invading

I purchased a 1999 Fleetwood jamboree gt with only 25k on it in great condition.

Went out into the woods camping yesterday and could not find where mosquitos were getting in. had to leave and come home.

any ideas I have checked all the windows, door is tight and seals on slide look good.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you in Alaska? That sounds about right for this time of the year. How much traffic was going in/out of the MH? From some reason, they can find the 'smallest' of routes to get inside.

I wintered near Tampa and the mosquitos were horrible. I researched and found 2 things that seemed to keep my coach mosquito free.

First I planted citronella geraniums in pots that I placed on ether side of the door. Second, I never opened the door at dusk and dawn when they were most active.

Here's a link to buy some plants

Lemon Scented Citronella Geranium Plant | eBay

I also bought some of these, but never needed them
Effective Mosquito Repellent for Outdoor Areas | ThermaCELL

Some people use those screens that you walk thru on their door to help keep them out.

Good luck!
