We have a lot of moles in our garden which I have struggled to get rid of because of the dogs, we are currently in a truce as they stick to one end of the garden and we stick to the other but the mole holes are a haven for the yellow pestilence that is Wasp.
Tried many things to get rid of them but can thoroughly recommend home made Napalm.
Quite simple to make - get a glass jar, I used a pickle jar, and half fill with petrol. Then stick polystyrene foam into the petrol and keep adding until you have a gloopy jelly.
DO NOT GET THIS ON YOURSELF!
Get a metal tube and identify the entry point to the evil lair. Administer a pint or two of petrol through the tube into the wasp hole.
Then get the napalm - it doesn't stick to glass for some reason but sticks to everything else - and pour this into the hole. I used a long metal rod to force it into the hole.
By this time the evil thugs will be recovering from the fumes of the petrol so time too introduce Mr. Fire. I used the metal rod, wrapped a bit of news paper around the end and lit it with my blow lamp.
Light the Napalm with the fire rod and stand back.
After a few moments the Napalm will light the petrol that is deep within the Lair and with the most satisfying dull thud will turn the nest, lava, and all of the wasps into vapour.
It burns for about an hour - well my concoction did - and after a week am pleased to announce that I no longer have a wasp problem. Even the moles are conspicuous by their absence....
Always more than happy to be a part of the slaughter.
Did you see the video of the bloke that did this and took out a gas pipe?
If you put wasp powder all round the nest, they take it inside and it kills the queen. I have had a few here. Best to do it about 10 pm when they are not as active when the temperature has gone a bit lower.
Let’s hope that works, once I have cut away some of the bush at 11.00pm to see where to toss the poison.
Hopefully you're on the mend Grizz, been in the wars a bit lately ! Keep taking the tablets... James
Amazing how the itch continues, despite antihistamines, guess it will be worse, without. My armpit and right groin lymph nodes continue to be swollen, obviously something to do with the histamine reaction from the toxins.
Sally found me some ant powder at Sainsbury’s after Morrison’s had none yesterday.
So a cautious approach at exposing the nest after dark, and hopefully a quiet end to all this.
I went out at 10.00pm in four layers, T-shirt, two hoodies and a fireproof overall, safety boots, leather welding gloves and safety glasses and a fireproof hood over it all. Cut a bit of the bush away. They sounded like a gang of chainsaws. I foxxed right off and shut off lights and closed the workshop. Then walked back to house. These 7 still hitched a ride inside the clothes despite me shaking and brushing myself off while still in all the layers. One got me on the belly under the four layers and the rest got poison or the glove. Bastards are curse word now. Be interesting to see if they let me out the house in the morning. Sally helped a lot with screaming and pointing in panic.
One pill. Antihistamine
Another later before bedtime.
Interesting thing, it seems the other stings have started to sympathy itch too.
