Could always pour chlorine in one hole and brake fluid in the other, then plug the holes and boom... problem solved.

I dont know what it is but KILL IT!!!!! Just dont let CC use anything flammable cause he will almost light your house on fire. While i like fire, i can imagine someones house getting burnt down somehow. Id rather get a good gas mask and use the Chlorine & Ammonia trick. For added bonus get 1 of these(http://www2.northerntool.com/product/200203874.htm) and if they start flying out another hole, you can burn them.

I think you should take it easy and just stick a garden hose down one of the hole and dorwn them. Once the water is pouring out of each hole in the ground you should be good.

Once the area is muddy you can then cave the holes in by stepping on them.


But then to be sure, throw oil on top of the water that has flooded and light that shit on fire.

Looks Pretty sick. Make sure you get all the holes. If you don't...You're Screwed. I hear they are pretty aggresive and will chase after you for a while if you threaten them. I like the tailpipe idea. That's a really good idea.

BTW, those are deffinatly not Cicada Killers. We have cicada killers all over camp. They are fun to watch; and like the one guy said they are completely harmless. The holes do look like Cicada Killer holes though.

I already posted what those insects are, Thread-waisted wasps. They just want to pull a human down into the hole so that their young have a host to feed upon . . . ;)

I've been doing battle in my driveway for 3 days now. Apparently, they thought the Gladiator I just hauled off was their aircraft carrier, or something. There was a dull buzz in the air shortly after I started ratcheting it up on the trailer with the come-along. I'm usually not alarmed by stinging insects, but this was an eyebrow-raiser. I just stayed at the front of the trailer, manning the come-along and maintaining area defense. It got interesting when the truck started going to one side or the other and I had to steer it.

Went through a couple cans and they were all still out there patrolling the other vehicles when I got back. I'm going to try a bunch of the hanging traps, as they'll just re-nest on the other trucks if I don't do something about it.

This works for ground bees, so should work with these...
Wait until just before dusk.
Begin boiling as much water as you can.
Put the melting chocolate in the fondue pot.
Begin drinking your favorite alcoholic beverage.
At dusk, begin quickly pouring boiling water in their holes (gather friends so you can get them all at once).
Keep drinking.
Dig up holes & dip dead, boiled insects in melted chocolate.
Eat up!!!

Seriously, boil the bastards, eating optional, drinking required!
