Re: One way to get rid of wasps.

Funny video.  I absolutely LOATHE bald faced hornets.  

 

A bald faced hornets nest, which I didn't know was there, and I got into a run in when I was a kid.  To make a long story short, I ended up in the ER.  I lost the battle, even though I wasn't trying to fight it.  LOL.  

 

They're one of the few insects that I truly hate.

Re: One way to get rid of wasps.

Holy moly.. I guess its bug season! I currently have a wasp/bee problem at my apartment. Both colonies appear to have nested somewhere near the gutters by my balcony, which means our balcony is 'danger Will Robinson'. I've heard making a fake wasp nest keeps them away since they won't go near a nest that isn't theirs. Any truth to that you know of?

Never heard of that..

From what I've read, the fake nests don't work well -- but it can't hurt to try.

I don't like any hornets.

I'm pretty sure hurting would be the #1 thing at the top of the list of things that would happen if it didnt work lol

Re: One way to get rid of wasps.

Fake nests don't work well here... Wasps will cut old nests down to make new ones here.

Last summer I saw my first bald faced hornet, never have I seen them around here before, the first sign of a nest being formed on my property and I am burning the house down, that is the only real solution!

I carry a can of Wasp Freeze in the truck. Every single old 7000 system I have taken down for upgrades has a hive inside the cover that was over the radio..  Glad I don't run into those to often.

Had a wasps nest in mine, too.  It was the perfect place.  I was trimming the weeds around the pole and bumped into that cover, and they came out pretty quick.  Thankfully, they were just paper wasps rather than something worse and/or more aggressive, but it was still unnerving.

 

Every year I'd kill them and they'd be back the next.  When I saw that the new dish setup had an open radio I was much happier, though I have found a nest on the backside of the dish.  There are still some protected nooks and crannies in the gear that are perfect for smaller nests.  Smiley Sad
