Heh... I've used the blow torch on yellowjackets (REALLY nasty bees/wasps for those of you lucky enough to live outside their range) but never heard of it for aipstasia.
However I HAVE used Joe's Juice, works great, just be sure it doesn't get stuck in the needle (you have to be sure to clean it when you're done or it turns into a brick). Got it at the LFS
for oh, 6.50 I think. Well worth the bucks, there were a few aps I had to juice repeatedly, but after three times even the biggest of them was dead as a doornail.
