If you hookup and drive away, not spray and kill them, they will not be dead inside the furnace. They will all fly out. When you get back, park in a different location for awhile. That's what I did. Not sure how long they were in mine or what type of nest they built. I fired up my furnace and everything was fine after a little smoking. That was 3-4 years ago.

Also got them in the wall of my house and attic. I made a trap out of pipe and plastic drink bottles. Took a few weeks but I caught them a few hundred at a time. Then I sealed up the opening they were using

I have used black flag wasp spray. Put on your running shoes, spray furnace vent and run like hell. I would wait a few weeks before lighting up furnace, but that's just me.

I had them in my basement cement block wall. At that time I only saw a few but having a newborn we didn't want to take chances. The exterminator had us leave the house for a week while they took care of the situation. When we came back after a week you literally could shovel them off the floor! So creepy! Good luck - we are going to store tomorrow to get screens - thanks for heads up!

Listen, i would not spray anything flammable into the furnace ! Possibly the best solution is to use crc brakeclean (non-flammable, the one in the red and white can) at night. Turn on the furnace and watch...i would on ly spray the brakeclean into the furnace air intake...that should take care of your problem, then buy the screen filters, also for the hot water heater.
