I think I heard someone say somewhere through Ferris Buellers third cousin once removed that those canisters to take out wasp nests are a good alternative. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Here in BC you'll never have an issue with the large can and the explanation "I camp in all sorts of remote places"
Old enough to know better....
Young enough to try it again
