mosquitos 17 foot bigfoot

I was wondering if anyone else had an issue with mosquitos getting
into a 17 ft bigfoot. the only place I can think it would possibly be is the furnace intake everything else is sealed .went camping
and they drove us crazy all night this is the second time this has
happened

mosquitos 17 foot bigfoot

Hello David, You could try taping a piece of screen on the inside of the furnace vented cover to see if that stops the bugs. Do not believe it would interfere with the air flow. Haven't had that issue in my Bf17 but it is still a little early up here on Vancouver Island. Good luck! Cheers, trapper

avid were here in Fairbanks and the only mosquitos we encountered were back about 36 miles from Delta Junction and oh they wanted to eat us alive, like they were going after every thing on the windscreen and hood of the Toad all this happening while were trying to jump a dead battery ended up at Peter Built Diesel, looks like last winter in the Lower areas of BC when it got cold the batteries all froze and the problems did not arrive until we hit Dawson and the Top of the World Hwy, I also think the Calcium on the hwy when it got wet in Dawson Creek did not help either.
But good luck with the bugs, they certainly are persistent. I Spray 3-4 minutes before bed then we all get eaten alive while that is happening then we go back inside and swat them for a bit then finally fall asleep to that terrible Whine!

These things are really handy. Skeeters don't move very fast...

Check your Stove Vent!

I had a terrible encounter down in a campground on Texas/Louisianna border, right on the gulf that when it started to get dark, we were attacked inside by over 100 mosquitos!


I figured out, too late, but taped it up that I had the fantastic fan on, a few windows open, but with screens, that they were coming through the stove vent! When your running the fan, the air sucks in via that vent, with no flap or screen to stop them!



We ended up duck-taping the filter above the burners until we could move on. Never had a problem again, but wow.
