Sorry if this isn't the right place for this, but I'm looking for some help.

I have a fairly large yellow jacket nest under the air conditioning cover on top of my r-pod.  Is it safe to spray the nest with bee spray (20 foot reach), or will that damage anything on top of my camper?

I have tried using wasp traps to lure them away from the camper with no luck.  Any suggestions (that don't involve fire lol) are appreciated and welcome!

I've got wasps coming into the camper through air conditioner! I just sprayed the top of the unit. I'm not sure what else I can do except install screening to prevent entry.

I don't believe there is anything I have seen that the wasp spray is corrosive to.  After you have got rid of the wasps, you'll have to pull the cover and remove the nest.  Hopefully you will have killed the wasps, because as we know yellow jackets can sting multiple times.  I think the water drain attracts them, because it gives them a needed source for nest building.
