Hornets in Boat
In less than two weeks, hornets (or wasps or mud daubers, never really got close enough to see!) have set up house in my boat. As soon as I moved the boat cover, they began flying out of a small hole in the cover. Fortunately I wasn't planning to sail that day anyhow. Does anyone have a relatively simple method of dealing with them? I'm hesitant to fog them because my main is still on the boom and flaked in the cockpit on the port side. Also my PFDs are one board so I really don't want any of them smelling like bug spray for the rest of the summer. Right now my plan is to get a tennis racket, thump the side of the boat and as they fly out of the small hole, wack 'em. Once they stop coming out, carefully remove the boat cover and prepare for hand-to-hand combat. Any and all suggestions welcomed. Thanks in advance.
