Slice: Chemical War Against Wasps

I would prefer to abide by a live-and-let-live policy. But the wasps that have built a nest above our garage doors will not listen to reason. And clearly, they have no collective memory of last summer's conflict. (It did not go well for them.) The nest is integrated into some crack in the eave. It cannot simply be knocked down. So I had to spray. Here are the active ingredients, as listed on the can.

  • Prallethrin………0.02%
  • Cypermethrin….0.05%
  • OTHER INGREDIENTS*……99.93%

*Contains petroleum distillates

Question: How goes your battle with wasps/hornets, etc., this summer?
