This brings me to one of my unanswered questions in electrical life.
I've read some very good posts on arranging exterior conduit to drain, then drilling holes in the lower conduit bodies or boxes for drainage (or cutting a small section of the gasket out to drain). My only problem with these solutions is...what size hole will allow drainage (allowing for some corrosion or dirt that might plug the hole), but not allow insects into the system???

Lucky they weren't live nests. I have been here before! Open the panel.... Put the cover down. Look up into angry hornets bent on destruction.
As for how they got there, they'll squeeze through any opening larger than an 1/8". Like the gap of the panel cover lid, then through the next one. It's like their bodies flatten out to squeeze through.
