I thought I read on here a while back about painting the ceiling of a box blind to help deter red wasps but I cant seem to find it. Is there a particular color that works best or...any other good deterrents out there? I understand making a blind air tight is best, but its a bit late this year.

I'm going back out this weekend to hopefully slay the rest of them. Last weekend I used 3 bug bombs and a whole can of spray and still haven't gotten them all. I can get some pics this weekend for you guys but the whole front 8' section inside and side 4' section in my blind was nothing but red wasp nests. Other than burning the whole thing to the ground and starting fresh, what can I do to keep them out? Next year i'll work on getting it as air tight as possible.

Read that too, iirc it was used on exterior eaves, but worth a shot in an enclosed blind.

I read it too but couldn't find it, or remember what color worked best. Once i get them all gone, i'll give it a shot. I seriously about flush when i opened that door and saw how many were in there. lol

ProZap no pest strips. Will not keep them out but will kill them all. Leave them in the blinds year round, just put a fresh one in every 3-4 months.

Light blue is what I read, or I guess "sky color".

I have also use the raid with residual in my birdhouses, they wont build on it for over a year.

You can also spray the corners and edges with Demon WP.

Combine that with a ProZap strip up I sprayed my haybale blind inside last year with Demon WP never had any issues with spiders or ants inside it.
