Wasps were building a hive in my storage shed. Normally that wouldn’t have been a big deal except it was directly above the lawn mower. At first, I would pull the mower out and a wasp or two would fly around – no worries. But, the hive kept getting bigger and the number of wasps kept increasing. Awhile back, I took the lawn mower out and it looked like a scene from the movie, ‘The Killer Bees’.
I went to the hardware store and bought some wasp and hornet spray. The store advertising said, “kills on contact” and it was on sale.
Returning home, I carefully opened the shed door so as not to disturb the killer wasps and got within a foot of the hive. I pushed the button on the top of the can and everything became a blur. Chemical was going everywhere. The shed was coated with chemical, the lawn mower was drenched, and I was soaked. Spinning around, I wiped off my glasses and looked at the can. There in big bold letters were the words, “Up to 27 feet Jet Spray”.
I turned back and watched as numerous wasps drop from the hive. The pile just kept getting taller as the body count increased. I don’t know if the chemical killed them on contact or if the pressure of the spray crushed their little bodies.
I’m glad I bought the non-staining formula.
