    Decontaminating from the day. Why, you ask. Well, the day started out by dealing with a young transient woman wearing a hospital gown that sh!t the largest amount of human feces that I have ever seen onto the sidewalk at a bus stop. I don’t think the collective collection of forum bedits could help that situation. The day ended nicely with another transient woman that was in the parking lot of a gas station, buck naked with exception of a trash bag skirt, refusing to put clothes on. It was hot, so I can see her aversion to clothing.

    Louis has a little competition at the top, some of the big names didn’t make the cut….others shouldn’t have made the cut. I hope Louis goes wire to wire, dude is on a roll lately

    @Stormbringer Great brisket cook right there.  You are really dialing it in.  Looks like a true banquet awaits.

    Egg cleanup today. Have the large and XL packed with miscellaneous stones to burn off some gunk and mold. It’s been a wet summer here. Battling mold like never before

    SWMBO procured them (I have another in the freezer) without my knowledge from a butcher she has recently found.  I dare not look at the credit card bill, but she's a keeper alright.
    I could have eaten the whole thing with no accompaniments. In fact a few slices 'fell off' while I was doing the dishes.  It just tastes better the longer you leave it. 
    Other girls may try to take me away 
    But you know, it's by your side I will stay

    Traveling done, ball done for the season, kids activities wrapped up for the summer, so just relaxing after a swamped last 2 months.  Planning a brisket cook for next weekend for my first smoke in a couple months - correction - outside of making some bacon.  Hope you all are having a good summer. Took the kids camping a couple weeks ago, found a baby snapper on the road,  followed by an 8 day trip to see family that was a blast.  My son got to harvest his first wheat riding with my dad, pond fishing on the same pond I did growing up, ATV rides, 4-wheeler rides, and enough ice cream to last us a month.

    Brought back some very fond memories for me. The summers doing all those things with my grandfather were priceless.

    Loathing the folks at GMC who decided to put my wife’s Acadia battery in the floor of the passenger side back seat…..$189 and some scraped knuckles later, all is well with the world
  • BotchBotch Posts: 11,721
    This morning I hopped into the pickup to drive around Ogden, my bi-monthly exercise to keep the battery charged up (I normally only use it in the winter).
     
    When I slammed the door shut, I noticed a cloud of about 20 mud dauber wasps pour out of my external rear-view mirror, and I'm guessing they weren't very happy.  I re-aimed the mirror full left, right, top and bottom, twice, and more wasps came out (definitely  not happy), some came out kinda wobbly, and some just dropped to the ground.  
     
    I drove around Ogden, and a few more crawled out, hanging on for dear life in the 45 mph breeze, and there were no more wasps when I got home (in the mirror).  I parked in the driveway, and there were quite a few angry ones zipping around the carport, I went thru my front door.  
     
    So, what do I do now?  Normally I'd go out tomorrow morning just before the Sun comes up, and squish them all while its still cool.  This morning when I got up it was already 80 or so (our cool mountain mornings are history), so I'd like to use the Raid route, but I don't want to spray that stuff in behind my exterior mirror, and gum up the plastics and the servos (no issue spraying the wasps that sleep somewhere in my carport, I've already identified a  couple spots).  
     
    Any suggestions?

    Cover the mirror with Saran Wrap, plastic baggie with rubber band or etc.  By the next time you drive it those inside will have died a slow painful death.  Those outside you don't get should hopefully have moved elsewhere.

    @Botch, Ace Hardware or Tractor Supply should have wasp traps available.

    I’ve had good luck sucking up sleepy wasps with a Shop Vac. Fill it half full with water and they will drown once sucked in.

    They do, but only for hornets or yellowjackets.  I still have two hanging in my carport.  They didn't seem to work on mud daubers.  
    Just once, about three years ago, I found a "refill" that included mud dauber wasps on their "kill" list (I haven't revisited a hardware store yet this year, on my list for tomorrow morning).  I'm also now remembering a weird optical "sticky strip" that caught just about everything, I'll keep my eye out for one of those too.  
    Thanks guys.

    If you have Amazon prime, they have BBQ with Franklin from PBS through the end of the month.  I’ve seen the brisket episode, but hadn’t seen the rest of the episodes.  Probably free on the internet elsewhere, but easy access on prime at the moment.  Episode on pit building that was educational for me when considering stick burners. I will note @WeberWho, the small stick burner he is using looks like it has a rather large diameter stack versus what I feel like I’ve seen on these small offsets.  He also emphasizes air flow which I think actually helps keep his temp lower?
