    The best test on a hot summer day is to sneak up on the car you want, kick the straightest panel on it as hard as you can and don't move until you are sure nothing flew out. If you did see varmints flying around run as fast as you can to safety. Get 5 gals of gas and saturate complete vehicle and light'er up. That will usually clear most unwanted creatures for a day or two.hahahahahh!
    The older I get the more I am allergic to both snakes and insects. I really prefer to wait until it is about 20 degrees outside. Mosquitos, ticks, wasps, bees, and snakes are not a problem then.

    CLOROX in a spray bottle, it drops the critters and melts their nest, turns it to mush.

    I recommend over kill take a couple cans with you spray the car really well and let it sit for a bit ! before you take her and I would pressure wash her after you get her home.

    That 55 looks unreal,could you imagine crawling in it to look up under the dash for something,only to realise where you were.I have never seen anything close to that before. Harvey
  12. I had carpenter bees one summer in my 2nd story unpainted soffet. My wife called our bug guy, he came over and dusted them with boric acid. Which has a low toxicity over other chemicals. Some fell right out of the hole on the spot dead, guess they got a face-full. Supposedly it works on any bee.

    I had some wasps under the rail of my deck a couple months ago, carb cleaner took care of that fast, even knocks them out of the air with a direct hit.

    When I read the tag line for this thread I thought he wanted to remove Hudson engines from the bottom. I was going to tell him that wouldn't work (Maybe it would on a "Hash" which was a unibody.). But now I know 50 ways to get rid of non-Hudson wasps.

    I'll probably get spanked for saying this , but my first thought when reading the OP question was, " man...if you don't know how to kill a few hornets how can you expect to work on cars ".

    sorry but i got to the party 'late'! i use an industrial spritz sprayer--fill it with K-1 kerosene, adjust the spray head til i am able to 'reach the nest from a safe distance' then begin working the trigger like crazy! the bees, hornets, wasps, will drop like mad! if i have the luxury of working at night , i will have a friend aim a flashlite---[the 'buggars' are on the nest at night, and are not accomplished nite flyers!] then begin the spraying. FIRST, K-1 is not a poison! SECOND does not have a high flash point like gasoline!! THIRD is very reasonable, something like $4 per gallon! PLUS, will evaporate without leaving a mess!

    BY-THE-WAY i am /hyper/super allergic to bee, wasp, hornet, and wasps stings, this works for me every time!

    i have used a 2 gallon fruit sprayer on occasion.

    this has worked for me for over 25 years in many situations.

    thanx red

    I just got attacked by killer bees two weekends ago while mowing grass around an old house at my other place where I store my parts and project cars. Got about 30 stings on my face and neck. They have a hive under the house someplace so i didnt have direct access to the hive or i would have soaked it with dawn and water. Went back last weekend with some dust insecticide,a handheld spot blaster, and my diesel powered air compressor and fogged the whole house.
    For wasps, yellow jackets or hornets and thing that evaporates quickly will kill them almost instantly (carb cleaner, brake cleaner, gas, paint thinner...etc) drops there body temp and they drop.

    That looks like a need for some industrial grade spray gear,....hooked to a BIG supply tank !

  30. I've been known to use starting fluid and a lighter when fire isn't a problem. Spray and light the stream, little bastards will sense the motion of the flame and fly right into it, wings don't work so good afterwards.
