    I brought in a fender from out-side, into my garage to weigh it, and found a wasp nest init. Dropped the fender and boogied out, so now they are really mad. I need to clear them out by tomorow morning, (my dogs have acsess to the garage during the day) Any ideas?

    Thanks

    You can actually buy wasp and hornet spray at any place that sells bug killers. It sprays about 20 feet and drops 'em instantly!

    I second Harry's method! But if you cant find any, use a lighter and WD-40 like Slydog said and just burn them. It works fine for me. My garage is an open invitation to birds, bugs, my two dogs, me, any other pesky critter!!! [​IMG]

    Tonightg when its cooler they will settle down. I use 409, it's got tsp (tri sodium phospate) It plugs their sporacles and they suffocate. Plus it burns like a mother.

    Ok get soapy water, like water mixed with dish soap, the wasp can't keep it out. They will drown. seriously!! Soapy water works. Get it all good and sudsy then dump it on them or just throw it their way.

    I'm putting another vote in for the Brake Cleaner. Just aim and shoot, they drop on the spot. Plus, that stuff shoots a LOOOONG way, so you can kill em' w/o gettin' stung. I just took care of a big nest a couple days ago w/some cleaner from Autozone. Just go buy a case and leave a can here, a can there, one by the door (you get the idea).....

    Twizwid,
    I sympathyze with you on this encounter of the third kind that have stingers and use them as much as they can! I too have had the best luck with brake cleaner. I used to get some stuff from the telephone guys here in town. That stuff would kill them at 50 feet easy. It was good target practice. I still think if you let them settle down and get cool and go after them with a can of brake cleaner, it will solve your problem! Hope you don't have too many puffy spots on you tomorrow.

    What we do in the Fire Department when someone has a wasp nest or killer bees is take them out of the sky with detergent foam - In a pinch, a $4.99 Wal-Mart garden sprayer loaded with Tide and running off of garden hose pressure works great - Or there's always the Black Flag Wasp and Hornet spray for about $5.00.

    get the spray. Or brake cleaner. Or B12. My very favorite method though is messy but very satisfying. Spray adhesive. Spray each wasp you see and the nest. The next thing they touch they stick to. Or if you spray the nest only, all returning wasps will stick to the nest for less mess. It's funny...yeah can you tell I live in the boonies? LOL

    When we were kids, me and my buddies used to swing at them with tennis rackets and get them stuck in the mesh - another product of small town boredom.

    Power washer if you or someone you know has one works well. You name them with that water and it teaches them a lesson they won't forget! [​IMG]

    these things SLEEP at night...

    what you need to do is wait until night time, and then you can do a couple thing, but probably the most recommended is to just go put a garbage back over it (if it is on a tree or something so you can) and then you can use whatever you want to kill them...
