I think the best wasp killer is when they are in a stack of wood, hiding, and I find them laying in the kiln floor after a sterilization cycle, cooked to a crisp.   :D

A kiln is pretty good on mice, scorpions, black widows, and snakes, too, and although I don't dislike snakes, this one forgot to stop, drop and roll when I was loading the kiln.  He ended up pretty "rumpled" and was cooked so soft I couldn't even lift him out without him dripping into little pieces.  Very tender and stinky.  I never saw him until I opened the door to pull the wood out.

That is called being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Hammer,

   Have you tried drying bacon in your kiln along with a load of wood? Might give it that nice smokey smell to capture the market. Could be a must-have for new restaurants to force the customers to develop an appetite as soon as they come in. :D

Funny you should ask, the last load my reefer container shipped while in service was a full load of beef jerky.  It still had some bonus packages in the container when it was delivered.  Still, to this day, when I open the door to the kiln, beef jerky aroma makes my mouth water.

I have contemplated hanging some laundry in there to see what happens, say with a load of cedar. Could be great deer hunting clothing prep.

Gentlemen,

   I think we may have discovered a new niche market for dry kilns. Please feel free to go ahead and sell them for meat processing/preserving, clothes drying, health and beauty (Saunas), etc. If they make any money PM me for my address so you can send me some. :D 

   If you end up in a law suit - I never heard of the idea. ;D
