Ok so I have this wasp problem at my house. Wasps or yellow jackets


So here is what I have done.

Last friday I took a broom and knocked down the nest and put it in my driveway and put some high octane fuel on it. Then took a lighter and a can of throttle body spray and shot a flame ball on the nest and let it burn completely out.

Wasps then landed against the brick wall where the nest used to be. Walked over and killed off like 20 of them with a broom with a few swings.


Saturday I notice more wasps in the same spot. Grabbed the throttle body spray and killed them all off with a lighter and a big flame ball shooting at them.

Sunday I notice about 40 more wasps so I repeat the flame throwing.

Monday I come home for work and the sorry SOB's had recruited more and there were 20-30 more. I shot more fire at them and killed them off again.

Tuesday there were no wasps.

Wednesday there were 15 or so that showed up so I got the flame back after them.

Thursday there were no wasps.

Today the Bastards are back.... What do I do now?


I keep leaving all of the dead ones swept up into a nice pile so that maybe the future wasps will get the hint that I am not playing games. I have a stack of dead wasps (about 75-100) in this pile and I cant seem to keep them from coming back.


What do I do?

Why do more keep coming to the exact same spot?

How to I win the war for good?

I have all but caught the house on fire.

Whatever you do, start video taping it. This series of events would have made for great entertainment.

Oh I have about 10 videos that are narrated from step 1 of taking the broom after the nest.

Everyday has been well documented on video

I knew that the way I was going about the killing would be beyond funny.

Excellent... Start editing. I'm searching for an old thread from another board about getting rid of wasps. It should give you ideas when I find it...

Stop using gas and buy some wasp spray. It'll leave a residual amount which will ward them off.


Oh yeah, please post the links to the videos so we can all have a laugh!!

This. I was going to ask if they did not sell wasp spray in DFW.

Glad there is no video of me in my homemade bee suit emptying two cans of hornet spray into a the ground hornet nest we found. Those are some aggressive little bastages!
