I have found wasps in my air horns before. Smiley  A couple of winters ago a guy 3 blocks away from us in Yuma was doing something on top of his rv and accidently stepped on a fan cover. Put his foot thru it, threw him off balance and fell off the coach and killed him.

I have found that Brake Cleaner in the red can works well to get the Yellow Jackets and others.  It shoots far, evaporates on surfaces and is usually cheaper than the bug spray.

Guess life would really suck for a guy that owns a double decker VanHool, climbs on his roof, and bump into that big hive!

Luckily here in Vancouver we don't have that many wasps. Atleast none on my bus so far.

I'm with the guys who use starting ether. Growing up, we had 50 acres in rural southwest Michigan, and wasps/hornets were constantly building nests in our tractor. I used starting ether and it will knock them out of the air. I think it eats their wings. Prevention-wise, we use Home Defense and bugs are never an issue anymore.

Wal,

What mixture proportions do you use with the dish detergent/water system? I use mostly Gunk to kill them now but your systems sounds better. You have to be very careful where you spray Gunk, it sure melts foam insulation!!

I will never use insecticides, that stuff is as poison to humans as to wasps!!
