    I was talking about all the stuff they say to do.. testing the area for wasp numbers etc, the quiz wasnt so bad, but I wouldnt bother.

    Also the stuff has to be frozen, then put out, then taken back in and disposed of (if you follow the instructions) and generally just sounds like a pain in the ass. I just want to poison or otherwise kill the fuckers until they die!!!

    Here is a thunderbolt and a glad bag of water to direct the blast.... Weird arm position is an attempt to block the ears, while the ear muffs stand back a safe distance...

    All this mid day while they are active......

    I keep hoping for the best but they always die.

    I've never been stung by a wasp (yet) thankfully.

    Back in S.A. we have several varieties - I don't know their botanical names but the two main types I encountered were large black and yellow ones with a massive abdomen and a kind of skinny petiole. Would be quite loud in flight and would fly with its legs hanging down underneath it. Our palm tree by the swimming pool was swarming with them.

    The second type was smaller but a kind of rust and black colour - would often nest under eaves or in corners of external doors and stuff. My friend and I entered a joint venture to acquire an 80cc scooter from his sister. We just used to hare around the plot with it - his plot was 2.2 acres of pretty much flat grass with 1 or 2 trees but it made for an excellent trial course.

    Off he goes and I'm watching / timing and then for some reason on a straightaway he appears to lose control, falls and begins shouting unintelligibly, beating himself and simultaneously tearing his shirt asunder. I thought he'd taken leave of his senses for a minute until he came charging up to me and "Why the fuck didn't you help?" I stared at him incredulously for a second wondering what on earth he was on about - then he pointed to where he'd been stung - a wasp of some sort had gone up his short sleeve and got stuck in his armpit and just laid into him - welts with tiny pinpricks of blood were forming.

    I felt sorry for him but still have no idea what he expected me to help him with!

    Id be very careful using any sugar based substance (ie jam) as a lure when mixed with a poison.

    It is likely to be also picked up by bees!!

    5 drops of front line pet flea treatment mixed in a standard tin of tuna. the dose rate has be close as to much and the wasps die before they get it back to the nest and to litle wont do the job. I think its the same active ingredient as vespex. Last couple of years its cleared the wasps here. Not cheap though.

    Correct.... It is the same active ingredient. Its Fipronil 0.1%

    Yellow German pricks they are lol. Did you know that these suckers actually breath through their wings.
    Fill up the ol weed sprayer with luke warm water and dish washing liquid,,go get em. It wets their wings, clags up quick and down they go.
    This new bait is great I must say.....bout time and like already mentioned above,DOC would be doing the birds a treat by killing as many of the pricks as possable and f*** the 1080 bullshit.
