    Hey all, have a question for when spring(unlikely)/summer finally arrives.
    My install is a simple straight-through vent with OAK. The install came with a critter cage, but I was wondering if I should just plug up both the OAK and vent up for the summer? Concerned about moisture, critters, insects (bees and wasps especially).
