How do you get rid of em??? Ive probably spent 40 bucks on spray since the end of june.... Ive resorted to circling the house with a flashlight at night and spraying em, but they seems that every time I kill one, there is another to take its place. No one has been stung yet, but I had four get into my laundry room somehow. What can u do to keep em out exlcuding moth balls.

I had a problem with them and ended up finding they were the nesting in the soffet of my house. Killed the nest and no problem after that. The nest entrance was at a corner of the soffet and nothing made it obvious that the wasps were there except that wasps were coming in and out of the opening.

Dawn and water is much cheaper.

Are you knocking the nests down after spraying them?

They sell a trap for them. It comes with some kind of sweet liquid and they can get in but cant get out

If you know where they're getting in there is a powder you can put there that will kill them and keep on killing them. The spray is useless once it dries.

Don't remember the name of then poison off the top of my head but let me know if you need it. I've got it out in the garage.

I hit all my soffets with the stuff and it solved my problem.

All those wasp traps attract are coons.

Just be glad they aren't yellow jackets......those things will jump you in a heart beat. Red Wasps are fairly low key in comparison unless you mess with the nest.

If you are afraid of them knock the nest down at night with a garden hose.

The ones we use are not safe for people so we take them down and air out the building when we use it.

OMG I hate wasps more than just about anything on earth. If I had an infestation in my home I'd probably burn the sucker down just to make sure I got the entire nest.
