You have a good point there.

The question is...what happens when I completely seal it off mosquito proof? I probably already know the answer...back to the terrarium concept. The thing to do, in order to keep wifey happy, would be to cut out the current plexiglass and install something new that could open from the front.

If you could find the areas where they get in, a little bit of noseeum mesh over the area would probably keep them out and still allow airflow.


This is just for reference to noseeum mesh. I have done business with this company in my camping days. Good people.

Thanks ben2go, another solution to think about. Of course this project has been knocked down a notch until I GO BACK AND INSTALL PETCOCK VALVES ON MY ENGINE OIL CHANGE SYSTEM.

Yes there is a small openning on each side of the gauge panel. I guess that is how the bugs get in. After removing the panel I was able to clean the area.

Then maybe the no-see-um netting would work.
