Remedy for Wasps in deer blinds
I know this topic has come up before but wanted to share my experience. We have 10 shooting houses on our property we hunt and every year we fight the wasps as we get ready for hunting season and clean out the blinds. Tried all sorts of things in the past to prevent them but nothing worked....Until this year. Back in late Feb/early March after hunting season ended and before spring I sprayed the interior of the blinds with bifenthrin (Generic 1oz to a gallon of water) in a sprayer. Sprayed the walls, ceiling, and everything. Today I cleaned out boxes for hunting season and was pleasantly surprised there was not a single wasp in any blind. We usually have hundreds with huge nests. Nothing this year. There were some dead ones on the floor like maybe they came in like normal but the bifenthrin killed them.

Anyway, I sprayed the blinds down again today when I cleaned them out and will just do it twice a year from now on. Just passing it on if you fight these little jerks every year like we do. Bifenthrin works in your shooting house.

You can paint the roof blue. They won't best up there.

Old people used to paint their porch roofs blue to keep critters from nesting.

Old coonass pro tip

Open door to blind.
Activate wasp bomb/fogger.
Toss in stand.
Close door.
Come back in a few hours.

Grab your kids super shooter, fill it with water and dishwashing soap, fill a cooler with beer and go to war with your buddies.

Every home in the south with a porch damn near has a blue roof wouldn’t say it’s that hidden a secret. Every time I go on a walk in a new place or neighborhood I specifically look for these out of curiosity. It’s cool how people just do things like that collectively but almost independently.

This is how we have done it for years. The foggers work but it requires driving all over the property after dark preferably when they are on the nest, placing the foggers, then coming back to all of them the next morning. Even still there would be a few stragglers.

Yep I spray suspend or talstar, whatever I have on hand. No wasps all season. Since I've been doing this we have less and less each year.

Hot shot strips are the way to go..... they kill everything, wasps, spiders, ants and scorpions!
