Wasp recipe?
[Return to Topics]

Not to cook and eat them....
I wonder if anyone knows a good home made mixture to use on them?
I have a real sharp shooter water gun and I would love some good wasp ammo!
Anyone know of a non commercial wasp killer mixture?

We get paper and mud wasps a lot out here.

the paper wasps like to build their nests under our eaves. I just go out at night when it's cool and blast them w/the water hose. They're sluggish, and when they come down, I step on 'em. When the nest comes down, I smash it too.

game over.

Perhaps a little story, a true story, may redeam my character in your beautiful eyes.
A few yrs ago driving an AC WD45 tractor powering a brush-hog, I happened to have driven thetractor over, the brush-hog throught A paper wasp collony stemmed upon a sturdy pasture weed. I had no idea I had it such a homestead; but wondered just the same what it was going on around about the tractors hot vertically rising muffler from the engine hood. A momant or two/three passed before I had realized the pig-ping-pinging against the hot pipe were the extremely upset/mad yellow jackets who's home I had so dasteredly destroyed. They were, to my gratification, taking their vengence out on the warmest/hotest resemblace of something warm-bodied, the tractors exhaust.

I to have been accompanied by the stingy little pests. Even driving, the wind in my face, not all of us can get away from these hot tipped pests.

use dish washing soap & water, heavy on the soap.
i didn't believe it when i first heard it, but it works


~Lenore    Posted 03-20-2004 at 12:07:52       [Reply]  [No Email]
Those sound good!
I wonder if I put amonia, dish washing liquid and water in the gun??
I think I will have to try it.
Thanks for the suggestions. :-)

Why can't ya leave'em alone. Got'em everywhere aound here. If we should have differance of oppinion over my use of a particular machine and can't drive it away from them I find WD-40 mighty handy and it lubricates and protects at the same time.
Somee of them wasps devior a good many other insects including mosquitoes. I disliking interfering to much with nature any more than I've done my part in screwing it up.
Get some long range Raid or generic brand on sale.
There's pressure canned products out there that will shoot 20/30'.
Keep an easy grip on the trigger. Squeeze slowly, don't jerk.
Gotta watch the Jerk.

Fern, I would leave them alone if they'd leave me alone.
They want to build under my patio table where I sit to watch birds.
They also like under my potting table work cart!!
I do not mind them drinking from the flower pots when I water them; or from the bird bath.
I just want some space where I do not need to "freeze" when the red wasps and yellow jackets come to my table.
Is that wanting too much??!

Freedom from these pests is not to much to order. When thngs get busier around here The only sitting place I got's on another tractor. From where I sits Summers I watch the fields go by.

How about checking out some Ag school extention services. One of them may have a suggestion for a long lasting appliable deterent.

If ya find something let us all know, Particularly me. I seem to run into confrontation every year over the ownership or who's using the turd-hurse.
Remember squeese softly the trigger.

Gasoline, preferably 93 Octane. A can of carburator cleaner or some starting fluid will put the hurts on 'em too! Although gasoline may destroy your squirt gun!

Don't spray it on finished surfaces!!

LOL!

If you're going to use cleaners, use NON FLAMMABLE brake cleaner!!!!! carb cleaner and starting fluid are too flammable, check yer brake clean to be it is not flammable. Lots a houses gone from this.

Ron/PA
PS wd-40 is a good knock down as well, but it's also flammable.

....when ya ain't got anythin' else....you can put those little red straws on a can of carb cleaner and squirt along ways!!! LOL! I know that it's flammable, but I figured common sense would prevail and you wouldn't squirt it at wasps livibg in your fireplace or a hot manifold?????

RY :)

Yer right, 'cept when hornets are whackin ya, it's hard to stop and think. A buddy of mine sprayed a hornets nest in a pump house for his stock tank. Carb cleaner, he walked away and the pump kicked on, as his 6 year old son looked in!
Poof a month in the Allentown burn center.
My brother sprayed a wasp nest in a cover for our solar fencer,, stupid cat looked in as the fencer popped. Blew the cat back about 6 feet and burned the whole pasture. Laughed right up until the hammer came at me. Carb cleaner!! Brake Kleen also has the red straw, but won't blow.
I agree, that common sense should prevail, and as long as no kids are hurt, I get my chuckles from most of these stories.
Later

Ok, I will be well armed!
Mixed some water, amonia and Dawn detergent for the gun.
I will get some Brake Kleen with the little red tube and
I will be ready for the little stingers tomorrow.
I also have a can of commercial wasp & hornet spray
but they seem to lose their distance very quickly.

get a cheap can of hairspray, when it gets on them it dries on their wings and they can't fly. Glad you mentioned them, this area is full of wasps. One more plus for the bay area of CA, never saw a wasp there in thirty years, most of the time no mosquitos. hope our guineas eat a ton of them

Ok REt, I will!!
Hairspray, wasp & hornet spray, "amonia, Dawn & water" in super blaster, Brake Kleen with red tube ...
I think I will be well equiped.

I saw a camouflage vest at WM today on the sale aisle;
I may get one of them and a wasp stand!

Just as soon make a real adventure out of it.
I aim to be the winner, too. ;-)
