What do you guys/gals use to rid box blinds from wasps/hornets?

You would think I was feeding em lately from my blinds. Spraying did no good.

I have bombed em now and put up those Hot Shot No Pest strips. Anyone tried those?

I've had good luck hanging the yellow pest strips early in the summer and also have good results hanging a plastic grocery bag stuffed with newspapers on the stands. I guess its supposed to look like a hornets nest but it seems to work...

Those No Pest hanging strips did the deal. Zero wasps (other than dead ones) upon return to the ground blind I have set up on a platform and in the box stand.

Real trick will be if these strips will work this spring/summer. I've never had so many wasp issues with stands before this place.

I used 2 bug bombs in my shooting house to treat these wasps about 6 or 8 weeks ago. Additionally, there was a big nest hanging on the door that I had to spray directly just to be able to treat the others. I pulled these down today. Next year I’ll be putting a fake hornets nest in each shooting house! As you can see, mine were those big red wasps.

Make up a few of these and hang both inside and outside the box. Just a lunch size brown paper bag filled with plastic bags. I have the one in the photo hanging from my front porch swing chain and others in and around the box blind. They think it is a hornets nest and stay away. We used to get covered up in wasp until I found this and now we may see a fly by once a week.

Finally opened up box blinds from last year to clean up. Left those no pest strips in them. Zero wasps or other flying critters in them. Se real dead scattered on the floor.

I'm definitely sold on those.

Couple of years ago we started hanging medicated cattle ear tags in the houses during the spring. It's not 100%, but I'd say it cut down the wasps by 75%. Drive a nail & hanging a tag doesn't take long.

I heard someone talking about this trick at work, I tried it and it seemed to work, but soon the wind and moist air demolished it. I decided to make a better one, so purchased what I needed and made this out of paper mache. I coated the outside with glue to repel the water.

Get you a pump up sprayer. squirt dish soap in, enough to coat bottom. Fill with water. Spray wasps, fan or stream tip, depending on how close you want to get. They will drop like rocks and die within minutes. They breathe through their backs, exoskeleton(sp). It sufficates them in quick

The first time I soaped em I couldn’t believe what I witnessed.

Sounds stupid but if you hang a few old CD's in there on fishing string....no wasps. It's the flashing that freaks'em out I guess. I like to watch'em die though...so I'm going the dish soap route

Call me sick in the head, but I like to watch them die as well. They seek me out and have been known to get me while I'm in the middle of 5-6 people. This has happened numerous times. I've also been stung 3 separate times while sleeping - talk about an alarm clock. Therefore, I like to watch them die.

Hand the yellow “ no pest strips” that come in the foiled pack. Problem over. Fake hornets nests around the stand helps too...
