We have a little hornet nest being built just under our mailbox, in the sort of useless "newspaper" slot no one ever uses. But it's tucked back in the corner, hard to reach.
We took care of one earlier that was in the garage door-jamb; that was fairly easy. We just waited till night, covered it with a tupperware container, jostled the nest off the wall, slid cardboard under it, and set it on the ground with a rock on top till they sort of suffocated. (Sorry, I'm very "I love all wild things," but wasps not so much.)
Now we've got one in a hard place to reach, and my husband has decreed that he'll be buying a can of Raid to get rid of them. And unless I have a better idea to try, I don't really have a leg to stand on in arguing with him.
Anyone have experience with this? I've heard soapy water, hair spray, traps, various stuff like that...but has anyone actually tried this stuff and had it succeed without getting attacked?
Time is running out...any day now he'll remember to go shopping and come home with that foam-squirting can...Help!
