    I believe there is a wasp nest behind my mirrors on my '01 tundta. How should I go about removing all wasp and protecting my truck from future wasp?

    They have a tendency to come back even after you kill them off. I had that issue with an old truck I have. I would spray the infested areas with a foam type wasp spray. It took a good soaking to get rid of them for a longer period of time.

    WD40 works very good.

    No no no. He has an ‘01 not an ‘02 +. Use a wasp spray. Then once they are dead pop the mirror off and clean it out. Simple
    Are you allergic?

    This is what I had in my 94 F150. I drove it to another part of my property and wondered why I had wasps buzzing in the cab. I opened the passenger door and found that. There was another big nest at the leading edge of the door by the fender. Wasps also like the post holes in the tops of the bed. I'd think I'd got them but then there would be more coming from somewhere else.

    The extermination kit is a two part affair.

    First you need a Japanese giant hornet.


    Then, you need a hive of Japanese honey bees, to get rid of the Japanese giant hornet.

    Spray the nest with a wasp spray in the late evening to ensure all the wasps are there.

    Put some plastic grocery bags over the mirrors when not using. That’ll restrict them. I have to do that every spring since male robins pick a fight with the one in the mirror and crap all over the door. Pests!
