[Waspfilter] Where can I get my hands on some diazon (aka diazinon, aka Knox-Out) insecticide? Failing that, what can I do to get rid of all these wasps?
My house has what is shaping up to be a serious wasp problem. In warm weather, they crawl all over the front of the house, in and out of various crevices in the brick, behind shutters, in and out of the eaves, etc.
Various members of the family are allergic, and we spend a lot of time outdoors, so this needs to be addressed ASAP. After some research here
and elsewhere, it looks as though Diazinon-based poisons may be the way to go. Things I like about this method:
-- Doesn't involve a lot of contact with the wasps
-- Kills the whole nest, not just stray wasps-errant
-- Takes care of multiple nests at once (I'm fairly sure we've got a bunch of tiny ones tucked away in various crevices, and it's simply not practical to take off all the shutters, comb the attic, etc., to try to remove all the nests one-by-one)
-- Doesn't involve spraying, or fogging, or anything else that might make the house and yard environment unsafe for our child. Diazinon gets mixed with meat, the wasps eat the meat, they die. Keep the kid away from the bait itself and from dead wasps, and the kid won't come in contact with the diazinon.
The thing is, Diazon/Knox-Out/Diazinon is no longer sold for domestic use (although still apparently allowed in agricultural and industrial applications). I am comfortable with doing the research necessary to use this responsibly in our home, but I haven't had any luck finding out where to buy the stuff, either online, overseas, or in the U.S.
Does anyone have any idea of what means (white, grey or black) I might use to acquire some of this magical substance? Failing that, any ideas for alternative wasp-ridding methods that satisfy the criteria above?
