Harvesting insects in hard to reach places
Sometimes wasps settle in crevices in the floor or climb into damaged walls. From such places they are quite difficult to smoke. Need to stock up on a flexible rubber tube and balloon. First, the whole house is inspected and the cracks are closed with putty or polyurethane foam. Only 1 hole is left in which the rubber hose extends. An insecticide is poured into the container. Through the tube, poison is injected into the nest. The hole in 10-15 minutes is sealed with foam – during this time the insects will die, and others will not be able to fly.
If wasps enter the room through the ventilation shaft, the hole should be covered with a mosquito net.
