For the last 3 Falls we gotten wasps coming down the straight galvanized
fireplace chimney and getting around the damper. I'm able to seal the
fireplace doors and keep them out of the house but this year I currently
have 80 - 100 wasps trapped in the fireplace. I'm wondering if anyone else
has had this problem and what have they done about it. Does anyone have
experience with the product below?
You're smart that way. My neighbors, not so much.
We have an inversion layer here, and at an hour before sunrise, it's a humid
65F outside. My neighbors, of course, are still burning their fire, or
what's left of it, with the resulting emissions filling my house.
I used gopher Giant Killer in an empty house with alot of spiders in
the basement, you could not go back in for maybe 4 hours without
coughing, using it in a chimney would poison the house, figure you
wont have a draft since you have no fire, but all the op has to do is
make a fire once in awhile.
>>>but all the op has to do is make a fire once in awhile.
I realize a fire would solve my problem in the short term but I'm looking
for a permaneht fix. A fire would (does) clear out all the wasps that are in
the fireplace but tomorrow they'd be back and will continue to be back till
the weather cools off for the rest of this year and apparently every year.
Guess I'm not the only one.
Got that intact. Would need some kind of much finer screen that what is
standard on caps. I would be concerned about restricting smoke\air flow with
too fine a screen. We live adjacent to a protected wildlife area so there's
quite a bit of forest debris and leaves blowing around.
