I'm not killing the bugs in my home because the sting or not,  I'm killing them because they ick me out and I don't want them breeding and multiplying in my home.

That's also why most spiders get a pass because they eat those other things.

If I had a button that would kill every wasp on the planet, I would push it right now.

Any insect that tries to feed on me or enters my home has forfeited its right to exist.

fusillade762: gja: gja: RageWars: Well, as an exterminator, people ask me all the time if this bug or that bug is dangerous. I tell them that after they step on it and kill it, no it's not. Then they tell me to do anything I can to kill the bugs. They don't care, just kill them all. This is followed by them constantly asking me if the stuff I'm putting out is going to hurt them. After all, they want only "natural, safe, organic products." All this is wrapped up with: "You're going to use the good stuff right? I don't want to have to call you back out here 'cause you didn't kill all my bugs."

God I miss the days of Chlordayne.

Hoo boy do I remember that. The brown-jug-O-death. Dad had a bunch of the 3 spinning/heated nozzle stainless steel foggers.
He would fog the backyard before parties and everything in the trees would hit the ground in about 10 minutes.

I could use one of those right now. My deck is getting swarmed with gnat-like bugs (I suspect they may be juvenile crane flies because we often have a problem with those). I'd turn out the porch light but then I'd risking breaking my neck going out to smoke. That and they come back to the light so fast it's hardly worth it.

Yeah, except later on in years we found out that crap went right to the water table and stayed there for ever. Fuuuuuuuuuu......
But hey, bugless summer parties here on Long Island baby. What a great time to be young.
Also remember riding our bicycles behind the DDT truck. WTF were we thinking?!?! LOL.
Probably in part accounts for the insanely high cancer rate on this region.

Yeah I leave spiders be too. I've had problems with silverfish, ants and the worst are fleas ugh stupid roomates cat. The worst was they made a nest or moved into my work shoes. All day at work my foot was itchy when I got home little flea corpses all over my sock. For a while we kept a can off off by the front door and used it when we got home to keep them off us. Even kept a cup of water by the bed, I got good at getting them and drowning them in the water.

Wasps eat caterpillars. I see paper wasps carrying balled up wads of caterpillar parts back to the nest. Other wasps (e.g. Ammophila) bring back whole caterpillars. This is a useful habit if you like your trees not defoliated.

Window cleaner will kill yellow jackets.
Then you can transplant their brains or something I guess.

Do you see this?
Do you know what this is?

This is a WASP.

It's mission in nature is to fark shiat up where ever it goes.
It does not pollinate things.
It does not make honey.
It is not a bee.

You cannot battle the wasp. The wasp is never alone.
It is always accompanied by other, even more violent and aggressive wasps; all of which are, in turn, accompanied by even more.

When you see a wasp, do you know what you do?
You stand the fark still.
You chill the fark out
and hope the wasp doesn't
put you on it's list of shiat
 it wants to fark up today.

You stand right the fark there
and wait for the wast to finish it's business
and move on with it's rampage,
and then you go the fark home.

Spiders and the occasional gekko can handle most insects.

Yes, and spiders. And mosquitoes. And fleas, potato bugs, earwigs, silverfish, bedbugs and those wretched little things that you can never quite see but that leave big welts all over your ankles.
