Rat Friendly Wasp Killer

Post by Soraya79 » Mon Jul 25, 2011 2:14 pm

Help!! My Rats live in the utility room and there's a wasps nest in the extractor fan vent in the room with them. I've sealed up the vent inside the room with cling film but need to kill the nest. The rentokil guy suggested squirting ant powder into the vent from outside the house but I'm worried the dust will affect my ratties (I'd obviously move them to another room during the treatment but how long would they need to stay out of the room for??). Has anyone had a similar problem in the past? Any suggestions on what I should do?

Have you tried a (( Waspinator ))?? They are totally chemical free and are supposed to really work! :D

Oh Poo! is that a fact? I was so pleased to see Hanlou's link as a friend's partner is having issue with a wasp nest in a mound of earth/garden near to the house and I'd never heard of waspinator before.
I sent him the link. will it definitely not help? should i tell him not to wate his money? or do you think it might work since they are in an underground nest rather than the typical hangy grey thing?

I read through almost all the info for it when I saw the link and it says that it needs to be placed before an existing nest is there as the way it works is to make wasps looking for a place to nest believe that place is already taken and they move on to find an open place. So if they are already established there they won't be bothered because it is already their territory. They are best placed in the spring when the wasps are out looking for a suitable nesting place. I think I will get several to place around my house and garden for next spring. :lol:
