so I was having a cig on my porch when this nasty huge bug starts hanging right around the door. I can't go back inside without letting it fly in too so I grab my can of brake cleaner that I left out side and take aim. I just let out one little mist and the thing falls to the ground. It was dead before it hit the ground! I guess that stuff is pretty toxic!

It's great fun to shoot down moths with brake cleaner.

Brake cleaner = moth ADA

I was working on something in my garage one day, and I kept seeing wasps. I grabbed the can of brake clean and drew down on them. With the plastic pipe inserted in the nozzle, I took aim and fired away. They tried attacking from all angles, but they were no match for my can of brake clean.

When the battle was over and the fog of brake clean settled, there were wasp remains scattered everywhere.

I am thinking that I will start bore sighting my cans of brake clean.

I have never seen a bug spray that worked half as good

works wonders on wasp nests as well

It must be yellow jacket season now. I was shooting them out of the air last week with brake cleaner. Five seconds and they were dead and still.

Works well on flies that are swarming on a dog turd . Hit 'em and they just fall off -- DRT.

Using the same substances for more than one purpose, sounds like you're helping Gaia! On a related note, used motor oil works well against anthills.
