Just a note about using Kerosene to for killer wasp prevention.
The stuff will dissolve the binder in shingles.
It stains wood with an oily stain
AND...It will smell for weeks and weeks...and ....
If it gets though onto the plaster it will stain the plaster as well as 
making the plaster "paint proof" in many cases.
Oh! Kerosene and Diesel fuel?  There is only a slight difference between 
the two in addition to some additives and lubricants in diesel fuel that 
are not in kerosene.
