A CG manager told me he sprayed WD-40 anywhere they chased out paper wasps because if they came back they could not get the nest to stick to the surface. Worked in the power pedestals and as a bonus the hinges worked better.

It's a great improvised explosive when sprayed in an enclosed side compartment, all it takes is a spark and it will blow the compartment door right off the hinges. Don't ask how I know, just believe me.

In the early 80s when we raced 4x4s we used Wd-40 to spray the inside of our distributors, for water proofing, Until they changed the formula to a explosive mixture, didn't work well, as the dent in the hood attested too.

Is the WD-40 explosive or just its propellant?

I agree. My grandfather used to spray on his worms and he always caught his limit.
