  • New use for pepper spray.

    Well I found a new use for pepper spray:

    There were two wasp nests in our backyard. Due to lack of any wasp killer (and possibly common sense), we decided to pepper spray one of the nests. All of the wasps died instantly. We sprayed the other nest and again all of the wasps died.

    Now I know what to do with all my expired spray.

    A lighter and aerosol hairspray works too.

      Sprayed a wolf spider with Sabre Red once, it died almost immediately afterwards.

      I am very, very, very afraid of spiders. I entered a trailer on a construction site in the middle of BFE, and almost shot the spider. It ran at me on the ceiling when the light turned on automatically, and the light fried my night vision.

      I am lucky, because my first instinct was to draw and open fire - all that registered was something fast was coming at me. Only after I hosed it with OC did I realize it was an intruder of the spidery kind, and not human.

        I tried that once, and all I got were little fire bombs!

          Hairspray is a miricle product. Everytime some pesky critter comes around, my instinct is to grab the first bottle I can find. For winged insects it's great because it hardens their wings.

              I've used my ASP to knock down spider webs, basically going through the triangle of power drill as I walk forward through the woods at open-air construction sites.

                Same here, though it was mostly on sites out in BFE.... urban sites don't tend to get quite as many around here...

                I'd bet some of the construction guys would've gotten a kick out of some of the surveilance tapes though... watchin us walkin around swinging our ASPs at nothing... lol

                    I've found the asp also makes a good backscratcher. If only they made a little claw attachment for it.

                      LOL You just made my day man...

                      On the flip side, no matter what people tell you, an ASP does not make a good substitute for a mallet when you're doing vehicle repairs... Has a tendancy to break the other tools, and put holes in sheet metal door panels... LOL

                        I've tried using it as a hammer, but it didn't put a hole in anything, it just bent a little and made itself very difficult to open and close.

                          Scratched an end cap all to hell trying to use it like that. I put a state seal jewelers end cap (Prestige) on my last one to prevent such temptation.

                            There's going to be a lot of dead spiders after I finish my shift today. Maybe even a few dents where the spiders used to be.

                              What about using it to crack walnuts?
