Yes, that's exactly why I suggested the newspaper and starving them. Had some in a wall at the house where I couldn't spray them. Starving worked.

All you need to do is buy some dog flea collars and stuff a piece of it into the hole. Do this at night when they are all in the nest. I buy 2 extra large dog flea collars each year in the spring and cut 3-4 inch pieces and place them in every louvered or open location and then use the final piece with the buckle in the propane cover. No more bugs, bees, roaches, ant or what have you.

wasps and bees are attracted to leaking propane, sometimes works better than a sniffer.

If the dog flea collars repel ticks they will also repel other bugs, etc. I started using them in my permanent deer hunting huts to keep the wasps away. Works great, also repels wako anti-hunters as well.

I think the Shell no pest strips from the 1970's would work great.

Thank you for all you wonderful and funny suggestions for dealing with our bee problem in the under belly of our Airstream. We did get the wasp spray as suggested and stuffed the hole with a rag. One bee did try to get in but died on the rag. The end of the bees!!! We are very grateful to you all!!
