 I have killed over 50 of the stinging creatures living in my trailer.  It is an older 2 horse and has openings around the back doors even when they are closed.  Any ideas about making my trailer less inviting?  I am not sure I can get weather stripping to fill in the gaps.

Hang mesh bags of mothballs inside the trailer by those openings

Put the moth balls in panty hose and it should take care of your problem. Good Luck

 Thanks!  I was ready to blow the trailer up with the wasps inside of it.  Went through a whole can of wasp spray in all the crevices and 2 weeks later opened up the trailer to find 3 more sitting there looking at me

Have you sprayed the nest ? If not, they're hatching new wasps. Look under the trailer and/or follow a flyer. They may have built a nest inside the wall or such of the trailer.

 I can't find the nest.  I am still battling them.  Thought they were gone, put the trailer up for a week and opened it to find new ones wandering around.  I have sprayed everthing I can find.  How about using a fogger and leaving it closed up for a few days?  Then hanging the moth balls to deter new ones?

Move the trailer to a different spot as far away as you can. If you still have wasps in it after a week... The nest is on.. or in the trailer. Until you find and kill the nest, you'll have wasps.

I have moved it and continued to kill wasps.  I think they were in the frame.  We filled the small holes where the wires disapeared into the frame.  I open it every day ready with my wasp spray, broom and fogger!  I think the original group is gone.  After a week of no new wasps, I opened it to load for a trip and found a big red wasp sitting inside ready to ride along.   Killed him and haven't seen any new ones.   I hate to move it back but can't leave it in the parking lot past this weekend.
Thanks for all the help!

I would fill these holes either with a small quantity of expanding foam ( because it does expand ) or the nonexpanding type, or something like silicone.
