Open Ko's?
The 1-1/4" coming out of the bottom has back to back LB's, without so much as a piece of bailing wire strapping them, so at some point in time the short nipple between them has broken, and the 1-1/4" is wide open...

What kind of insect did that? I see what looks to be a mud wasp top left but the other stuff looks foreign to me.

We call them "mud daubers" in Arizona. They will plug up a receptacle without a cover in no time, and every opening in a transmission or engine left sitting around.

I have them real bad at my mountain property. I didn't run my generator for a few months and when I went to start it the exhaust hole was clogged. It was so perfectly sealed that it looked like someone took a finish knife and filled it with brown drywall mud.

When I did ag work in nor cal everything I touched from June to September had tons of wasps in or on it. The owner of the company allowed us to bill the customer for wasp spray, it was great! Here's the best part of the story. I had a co-worker who was from Laos and would get the nests and eat the larvae as a snack.

Too early for the critters here. That a complete do over?
Nope, just a flick with a screwdriver and move on. I would have probably tripped all over myself had it been a month later and the inhabitants were present.

Were the bugs alive or was this just their breeding houses?

U use Bug spray in a live panel?
