For those of you using professional aerosols how do you go about getting rid of them? - there considered as hazardous waste being that they are  aerosols?

Get yourself set up with a stem injector then you won't be tied to weather conditions.

I have the gear but there is acres of it, it would take for ever and cost a flaming fortune, it would be quicker to pull it than to inject it, plus it is all at different growth stages.

I believe some may be leaving onsite for the customer to bin, you won't use a whole aerosol on a nest anyway. Therefor if left with the customer they can bin em. domestic aerosols have the same ingredients just a smaller tin.

FYI I don't use them unless it's for a knockdown around a window to sort out some escapees.

If i have an empty aresol on a job then it just goes in customers bin.

I'm sure some clever sod will be on to tell me I'm a disgrace to pest control and I should have a waste transfer licence

Disgraceful! Sell all your gear and go and stand in the corner.

Lol suit on every nest, had too many close calls with it on, I would be dead by now I'm sure otherwise. Plus it makes the customer appreciate it more as they think they couldn't do it themselves.

I got stung at the bloody pub of all places a couple of weeks ago. Nice cold beer made it all ok tho! Been stung 6x in 9 yrs at work. Pretty good average I think👍
