lol i know :)

UGH! Alright, how the heck did a huge wasp get into my room? Right now its got its butt sat inbetween the fire alarm and the wall in my valt. I chased it around for a while but was unable to squish it.

What makes matters worse is i'm really allergic to them :(

I've got all my windows open, a fan pointed at the ceiling, and a shoe handy.

The beetles are still here if you want to know. I think that huge "beetle" i saw was the wasp. NOT COOL! I want winter NOW.

And as you have those windows open hoping the wasp will leave 3 bees fly in....

Seriously though I do feel for you as I hate those things with a passion myself.

If you have a store handy that has it there is a wasp spray that will spray like 10 ft. Of course then you have to deal with the smell of the spray.

Screens are lovely for keeping things out. I'm at a loss how this thing got in (unless it crawled under the gap in my door, somehow went five floors from where ever it came in, etc.). I've scoured all three of the screens, all are in properly and no holes.

Right now i have the hallway door open maybe i'tll go out there? If it does, i'ma shove a towel under the door <_<.

If you can get close enough, turn a can of canned air upside down and spray it, it will freeze the wasp and no stinky smell!

I can't throw very well at all.

At any raate, it wouldn't even hit. The smoke detector is somewhat big and really close to the wall, so i can just barely see it.

Also, i'm somewhat of a coward...

Lady bugs have been very numerous in the East the last few years also. And stink bugs.

Many bugs are attracted to lights at night, just like moths. So leaving a light on isa good idea if it draws them into a trap. They make sticky glue fly strips you can hang from a ceiling also. Maybe a light and a few of the glue strips would do the trick. For fleas they say to put out a pan of water with some beer and a little dish soap in it and a light above. They jump in the water and drown. The soap keeps the water surface tension low so they sink.

good news, I might have gotten the wasp. I had the door open to the hallway and it landed in the jam and i slammed the door. I'll go check in a bit if i got it or not (hope so), but yay!

Still have one beetle bug thing, but i'd take that any day over a wasp.

What's the beer do?


Beer helps attract the fleas. Probably anything sweet or fragrant would work. Or even a nice bowl of red hot blood would work great, since that's what they eat. Yes, that's right, they eat blood! Purfect for Halloween! Thousands of little blood eaters swarming around the place. All of them attracted to your night time reading light. Eww.

So, the wasp is back. Somehow, the towel i placed under the edge of my entryway got moved.

Gues who got woke up by buzzing? <_<

After being chased around for a while, I remembered something.

Up in montana, we would make these homemade bee traps. You take a disposable water bottle, cut it in two, invert it, staple it, and put something like a sweet liquid inside of it (didn't have soda, so i used honey water).

So, now i wait. Hopefully, it kills the bugger. They can fly in, but not back out and eventually die in there.
