It works

I had hornets or wasps trying to take over the airstream.

They were building nest in the furnance, water heater and bumper compartment.
I had read somewhere to put dog flea & tick collars where they are going in so I did and it worked. They are gone.

Thought I would pass it on in case anyone is having the same problelm.

I've had huge bumble bees living in my trailer. First they went in by the stair. I blasted some bug spray in there. Then they went in a small hole under the belly. I blasted that & stuffed some papertowels in the hole. Then I went camping about 90 miles away. My husband (the all knowing farmer who knows bugs) said they wouldn't follow. Well, I think a call went out to all bumble bees in Michigan & they still were there! I finally just blasted them as they flew in & must have killed about 35 of them before they seemed to thin out. The last day we were there, I didn't see any. Wouldn't you know it, but when we got home, they were B-A-C-K! I'm polishing the trailer now, so I keep my killer handy. I think I'll try Garry's method too.
Maybe I can just stuff one in the hole!

Those little guys are very tenacious! I would screen every hole if you can, keep bug spray handy and try the flea collars as well. Hate those buggies.
Good luck getting rid of them. They destroy your insulation and make icky messes. We found bunches of old nests in our Bambi when my husband was taking it apart during restoration.

I use this stuff called Suspend SC availble at buggedbybugs.com.

It has a residue killing power for 90 days. It does not kill instantly but as they walk through it the molucules build up on them and does them in.

We got some wasps with our Ambassador. I sprayed one while he was on the window. It slowed him down as he walked through it and killed him in less than a minute. Its this residue killing power thats the key. Because it keeps working for a long time. If you overspray the entrances doors, windows, etc... the bugs will be dead before they get to the opening.

It's really great stuff for all kinds of bugs like ants, fleas, ticks etc. It's also safe to spray indoors too.

Its the same kind of stuff a pest control company would use if you paid them $50/mo.

I paid $50 and used it for years.
