He says "permethrin". Its the same stuff we hunters spray on our clothes to kill ticks. Its also what some exterminators will spray around your house and under your eaves to prevent termites from moving in. The stuff kills em wet or dry.Crazy yellow jacket nest! What was he spraying on them?
I always used 100 octane gasoline. Knocks them down right away. Or you can just light and burn the place down.He says "permethrin". Its the same stuff we hunters spray on our clothes to kill ticks.

Back in the mid-80's I worked for a lawn care company. I went to treat a yard and the homeowner came out to greet me before I could get started. He pointed at hornet's nest hanging from a tree in his front yard and told me that he was expecting a pest control company to show up at any time to spray the nest. He also said that he had called a couple of other pest control companies who all refused to come out. Sure enough, within a couple of minutes the bug man showed up. He examined the nest then went back to his truck to get his sprayer. He walked right up to it, stood almost directly beneath the nest and started spraying. He didn't have any "protective" equipment on to prevent himself from being stung. He didn't need it. It killed the entire hive. I was sitting in my truck 20 yards away with the windows rolled up...
Yes. Exactly like that. Except he was wearing a white shirt, no cap, he wasn't smoking and he had his spray can directed the other direction. But other than that, pretty much the same...Did he look like this?
The pain from a wasp/insect sting generally fades after a day or so. True hell is getting into a bunch of chiggers. Especially your feet, ankles, legs. That infernal itching lasts for a week or more. And almost nothing helps. Only thing that comes close is extremely hot water...as hot as you can stand and then a few degrees hotter. Replace the itch with a near burn and let your endorphins take care of the rest.Get them open and put a drop of bleach or ammonia on them, burns like a bitch for a few but chiggers will be dead
Same here with a backhoe. I tried to get the outriggers up and put it in gear at the same time but had to jump off. One suspended wheel was spinning on top of a saw palmetto. I watched from a distance taking stock of a dozen or so stings while the tire started a fire on top of the palmetto.several decades ago, I backed a tractor into a yellow jacket nest while clearing a lot.
