    Ok so I have wasps on my back yard... Was out and about when they attacked me... they got in about 10+ good bites on me... two got stock in my beard and died with out getting to my skin…also had few bites to the neck. And one was stuck on my back for about 5minutes…

    I want to kill them all but I also don’t want them coming back.

    I called the professional... $150 and they wont even kill them... he said he will come and knock the thing down... adding that they will be around my backyard with out home and then will go away... I assume they will be pretty pissed about it too so they will go after me again. And I just don’t see fun in that… I want to see them suffer a little.

    So here comes the question… how do I kill them on my own? And so they don’t come back either… but make it fun too :) Any one done any fun things like that? Please do tell:)

    Be careful in the hot, dry weather though. I don't want to see you on the national news being blamed for a 50,000 acre fire!!!

    If you're good... you can sneak up and set an M-80 somewhere inside the hive. That would be the epitome of a good time. :)
  7. Seriously. Hot, soapy tap water. Wait until early evening when they are all hangin' around at the nest and bragging about how many times they stung you. Fill pitchert with tap water as hot as you can get it (don't bother boiling...waste of time). Stir in a decent amount of dish soap. Sling at nest. Be sure to be as accurate as possible. Wasps die almost immediately.

    Just use wasp spray man. It's always worked for me. One night though me and two buddies were spending the night in this old shack out on my land and it was full of hornets because no one had stayed in it for a long time. We ran out of the little wasp spray we had pretty quick and spent the rest of the night playing poker and intermittently killing hornets with a hammer when they'd land on something solid.

  11. You could always wear a protection suit, bring your rig outside and crank it up. I'd say that would do the job, and if not, flamethrowers work very well too pending you don't set fire to your lawn.

    I'm with Brad, I've had real good luck with the commercial wasp spray's most of which have a range of 30' or so. I believe your suppose to wait till dusk when their less active and most are in the nest, a good dose of that stuff will definitely solve the problem.

    Here's my suggestion.

    Buy lots of hairspray. I recommend Aquanet because it is easy to spray, dries quickly, has much alcohol, and is flammable.

    Wearing some protective clothing, I suggest spraying the wasps and the nest with hairspray. The hairspray will not only burn their exoskeleton, but it will also harden to a point where the wasp will not be able to fly or even move.

    The ones that survive the spraying will not be able to defend themselves from your next manuver - torching the little b@st@rd$!

    When you are done, place your right foot on top of the hive while beating on your chest and letting out a primal scream. You showed those arthropods why you're above them in the food chain!

    I have wasps, and they never go away. I need to keep diligently spraying anything that looks like a mud nest. Also if you keep back and watch em for a while, you can see where they go and attack it. I get em in my hot water heater thingy since it vents outside which is trouble because of the pilot light. Generally the shooting spray - goes 30 feet and works well, u dont even need to kill em all, just spray the nest a bit and they'll die in time.

    the bomb spray stuff is great.. it's like a sticky foam that poisons them all in a matter of seconds.. you just sit and watch in glee as they stiffen up and fall to the ground in hordes! For the record, wasps, ants, bees, and all those little pests use stingers..ants only bite you to hold on for grip while they are stinging you :D

    Hmmm... the fire ideas sound a lot like fine... problem is... nest is in a building:) as much as I want to burn down a building to kill wasps I don’t think I should:/ I might use those ideas for after i kill most of them to take care of the nest:)

    I guess Brads idea sounds like fun and effective... any subjections on which spray would be better... do they really shoot out from 20 feet away?

    Oh and after i kill them all... what do i do with a nest? take it down and burn it? maybe some home made explosive as subjected would be fun?

    Thanks guys... this will be fun...:)

    Oh and i am not sick in anyway... i don’t mind little bustards at all or hate them... i don’t even mind being stung... its just they should know their limit... They stepped over the line we agreed on and now they must die.

    After most of them are dead I think you should get a heavy duty garbage bag and bring it up around the nest and make the nest fall into the bag. Then you can take the nest away from the building and have fun with fire.
