SpectracidePRO Wasp & Hornet Killer is designed to kill wasps, hornets and yellow jackets and eliminate the nests where they live and breed. This product also kills mud daubers.
Dielectric breakdown voltage of 47,300 volts
Jet spray reaches nests up to 20 feet away
Kills the entire nest
Kills returning wasps and hornets for up to 4 weeks
The spray will continue to kill returning hornets for the next few days. Once you're not seeing stragglers buzzing around anymore (at least 24 hours after spraying), it's ok to remove the nest. Good luck!
I have a huge wasp nest on what is currently an unstained/unfinished tongue and groove porch cover. When my project is complete, the T&G will still be exposed. Will your dry clear or spray soak into the lumber and create dried liquid spots?
We had a yellow jacket in the kitchen, couldn't get it to leave, and I panicked because I'm allergic to them. I grabbed the spray and killed it. It got on the walls and part of the ceiling - of course it was only after that I realized it was only for outdoor use. What steps should I take?
My dog at a wasp I sprayed two days ago. I am concerned - my vet said it was a dead wasp . Should I be concerned ?
My dog ate a wasp I sprayed two days ago with your product . I called my vet who said the wasp was dead and dried out by the sun and I should not be too Concerned. IM still concerned . She said as long as it wasn't freshly sprayed I should t worry as its toxicity should be gone as it dries off. Should o be concerned ?
Don't know where nest is. Can I spray where they hang out?
I have a huge wasp problem, but I'm not sure where the nests are since I have a lot of property with a lot of trees. They always come hang out on my roof and porch. Will it kill them if I just spray the roof and they walk on it? Would it come off and be harmful if it rains since i don't have gutters?
Yes, you can also spray surfaces around your home where stinging insects frequent, like under eaves and around windows and doors. Follow the label directions under "To Kill Wasps, Hornets & Yellow Jackets." Good luck!
I sprayed this into the underside of my recliner. Will it hurt my chihuahua or me?
I had a spider in my recliner. This was the only bug spray I had. I sprayed it all under the seat and foot rest. The smell is really strong. We have a very small living room in a very small apartment. There is me, 63 year old woman, My husband, 69 year old man. 2 dogs. 7 lb chihuahua and 20 pound terrier. I opened the windows to try to get rid of the smell.
You should never use this product indoors. Ventilate very thoroughly and do not re-enter (and keep other people and pets out too) until you can no longer detect an odor. Wash treated surfaces thoroughly with soap and water upon re-entering. This product is not labeled for use against spiders.
Any danger in plugging up an entry hole to house if spray is still wet?
I have sealed a hole where air conditioning hose enters house after spraying inside hole first. No bees, were present that I could see, I just sprayed as a precaution, but I sealed the hole with insulation material and caulking before letting spray dry completely - waiting only about 20 minutes. Is there any danger here? Will the spray dry on it's own without ventilation? No danger of fumes getting into house, just want to make sure wet spray sealed up air tight is okay.
We have a bathroom upstairs with no window and a vent fan. Recently wasps have been able to get into the bathroom through the vent. It would seem that they have a nest in the pipe leading to the roof. I don't really want to spray this product in the bathroom, or down the pipe on the roof because the product will end up in the bathroom either way and it has no windows. Any recommendations on how to take care of the wasps in this vent? I have currently shoved blankets under the door in an effort to stop wasps from coming into the rest of the house.
Wow, that's a tough place to kill wasps. We recommend either fogging with a product listed for use against wasps (we make one, Hot Shot Bedbug & Flea Fogger) or calling a professional. Without knowing how far up the duct the wasps have built the nest, you will likely need to call an exterminator.
Can I use the Commercial Wasp spray to spray up (literally up) a hole / nest under a window?
I see YJs entering a small hole under a window that is about eye level or a bit higher. I am worried whether I should spray from straight below, or should attempt to insert nozzle into hole or if I should spray from a more horizontal approach which wouldn't enter hive probably at all but could saturate the entry point.
My thought is maybe the second choice? Nozzle as close to hole as I can but I am worried that the can will be sideways and may not spray or that I will get badly stung as nozzle is not as big as hole
Yes, as long as you're spraying outdoors. If you feel you can safely insert the nozzle into the hole to saturate the entry, we recommend doing so. Be sure to treat at dusk when the insects are least active. Good luck!
I sprayed a nest by our pool and a little got into pool. Could see small amount of the sheen on the water in the pool. Approximately less than a second of spray amount. One quick squirt but mainly the wind blew some in. Did not directly or on purpose spray into pool.
Is it safe to swim? How long or what do I do to make pool safe to swim in?
Can I use Spectracide Wasp and Hornet Killer right on the wasp itself and kill it quickly?
I am working in a garden and I don't know where the nests are but I am tired of getting chased away from the flower beds I am working on. And yes I run because I am terrified of wasps can’t help it. It is just an irrational fear! Plus it doesn’t help that they seem to love my brightly colored uniform t-shirts.
We don't recommend it because of the high risk of stings and because it can be difficult to contact individual flying insects with a jet stream spray. If you encounter wasps often, you likely have a nest nearby.
I have Cicada Wasp infestation. I have used the product SpectracidePRO ® Wasp & Hornet Killer with no success killing them after a direct application. Is there a product I can use to kill them beside by tennis racket? :-)
We have what we have always referred to as wood borers that bore holes in the wood and eventually destroy the wood decking. They leave wood shavings all around the hole. We tried wasp and hornet sprays but it doesn't seem to be affective.
No, a woodborer is a type of beetle (powderpost beetles are a common variety). Give Spectracide Terminate Termite & Carpenter Ant Killer a try instead (it will control woodborers and carpenter bees as well): http://www.spectracide.com/Products-and-Solutions/Wood-Destroying-Insect-Killers/Spectracide-Terminate-Termite-and-Carpenter-Ant-Killer2-Ready-to-Use.aspx
SpectracidePRO Wasp & Hornet Killer won't control roaches, but we have several products that will. We don't sell our products directly, but you can find them locally at Walmart, Lowe's, Home Depot, Target and other retailers.
If they're nesting in the ground, you'll need to treat the nest directly with a product that has an extension tube. We recommend Spectracide Carpenter Bee & Ground-Nesting Yellowjacket Killer Foaming Aerosol: http://www.spectracide.com/Products...
We do recommend that you keep your dog inside until the spray can dry completely. Although it's unlikely that your dog would eat enough dead hornets to hurt her, it's still a good idea to clean them before she comes back outside.
