Default I hate wasp

I especially hate wasp when they take to living inside of the transponder of my satellite dish which happens to be the dish I get my internet through. They took a tiny small hole where a screw used to be to get into it looks like, then proceeded to make a nest big enough to teh point that the case has come apart... There'* probably hundreds of them inside there and I can only imagine how long it'll take before my internet stops working because of it. I can't exactly spray them because of all the electronics so what do you do about them? I don't want to get near them, either, because I don't feel like getting stung dozens of times.

again.... I hate wasp! They're EVERYWHERE lately around where I live!

Good idea, get some of those mammoth smokes you can get for the fourth of july, tape about four together, tie a rope with the smokes to the rod going to the transciever and light them. although dont put them right on the rod. Smoke should clear them out[sulfur smell], without damaging the equipment inside.

Reminds me of the time I had them winged ants in my glass-enclosed front porch...

I sometimes have a wasp problem also, but usually there'* that foam stuff that you can just spray at/into the deal. But you can't do that

lol. in theory that is a good idea but in reality asking a company with less than a 10% customer satisfaction rate to replace a dish because of poor service would probably neve rhappen in reality. the only reason why they stay in business is because A.) They force you to sign a 2 year contract before you get service. B.) They are satellite internet which means to even get that in the first place means that there'* nothing else available in your area. (not even cable TV.) You pretty much get stuck with them.

Buy a couple wasp traps and put some raw chicken in them. Hang them near the dish. You'll have them all in no time. Use the bait that comes in the traps on the raw chicken.
