    We just douse 'em with a little diesel fuel. Just as effective and a lot cheaper.

    Use your Shop-Vac or rig a hose from exhaust pipe of your car. Or tape a jar over the hole for when he exits. But if you don't want to spray stuff all over your wood, stick the flexible tube from a can of silicone spray in the hole while he's in there and his buzzing will get loud real fast then stop.

    My favorite combo for all things bug related from the state that obviously sees the biggest share of 'em:

    We also plug the holes after application with dowel rod pieces. This method has really helped us get a handle on what was a serious reoccurring problem.

    I also like this product for general bug maintenance every couple months: http://pestproducts.com/talstar.htm

    ...and btw...up here in MI. (or at least in these parts) you had better get lucky and spray these guys when they land in the hole. They'll spit out even several decent close quarter shots and keep flying! :ohmy:
    Their flight patterns and speed are certainly one of nature's wonders; not to mention their ability to create often extremely long tunnels.
