Sanderson - Thanks for bringing this topic back up. I completely forgot about the vac I bought last year for squash bugs. Definitely time to pull it out.

TD, I live in a semi-desert area! Apples and oranges, or should I say Straight 8s and Muncher.

BJW, What kind of vac did you buy? A Dusterbuster type?

Sanders - yep, it's a Bosch cordless vacuum. It uses the same batteries as my 12v cordless tools. Not too high-powered; it works well enough on sawdust and things, haven't actually used it for my intended purpose (bugs) yet.

Newbeone, I'm so glad it worked for you. I'm sure it sounds like an iffy idea, but I find it's my best tool against them. And, a container of soapy water for dumping the "contents".
