    Yeah, then you can feel tougher. Taking on one isn't much of a fight.

    Exterminators use Tempo, and will charge you more for one treatment, than that entire bottle will cost, and the bottle will last for 10 years. If you are talking about spraying your eaves, and upper parts of exterior walls, there is no better product. Just don't spray where people are going to walk, or lick. I use it outside my house and I do not have wasps, yellow jackets, or mud daubers. It is also lethal in the corners of the basement where spiders crawl. Ladybugs and Ants are also very sensitive. Use a garden sprayer and apply it where you want it, no where else. I live in the country so I have plenty of wasps and yellow jackets, If I didn't use a product like this I would spend all summer messing around with them.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    That says enough for me. We started out talking about how to keep them off of a deck. We don't want Little TC to get brain damage or whatever the stuff will cause.


    Here's the skinny on Tempo:

    I'm not posting this because I'm a tree hugger. I just get real concerned when we start throwing around brand names and stuff, like these things are innocuous remedies. Pesticides are serious business. When I was a landscaper, I learned an awful lot about how chronic, low level exposure to these things can do nasty things to your liver, kidneys, your brain, etc. Go ahead and use them, but consider the consequences and please take appropriate precautions (disposable coveralls, breathers, eye protection, soap...). We don't want you to mess up your brain and start rooting for the Cardinals.

    We have pets and a child that occasionally eats dirt. We're pretty careful.

    It doesn't sound like there's anything out there that I'm looking for.

    It's surprising, because a safe repellent product would be great around tool sheds and barns.

    I've found that using something like Raid wasp and hornet killer works pretty well.

    I make sure I know where the nest is, go out after dark with a flashlight and the spray, and nuke it (wearing long sleeve shirt and aerosol mask). A couple days later, I knock it down with the hose. If I'm worried I didn't get them all, I burn it.

    It isn't a repellent and isn't pro-active, but seems to work for me.

    Pay attention to the open sky
