Can I use Talstar P (Talstar One) in walls to kill/and prevent wasps?

I need a product that will kill AND prevent wasps!

Answer:

Talstar P (Talstar One) will kill bees and wasp that come incontact with the treated area. However, if you know where the nest is in the wall it would be best to use a dust. you can use a hand duster to apply a dust product such as Tempo Dust into and around the area where the bees seem to be gaining access to your home. Over a period of a couple of days to a week (timeline will depend on how many bees are contacting the treated area) this will kill off the colony that has taken up residence in your home. Any insecticide applications should be done very early in the morning or very late in the evening when the bees are less active. After the bees have been eliminated it is important to remove the bee hive from the void where the bees were nesting. Failure to remove the hive can lead to mold issues and secondary infestation from hive beetles and other insects. If the bee hive is in an area that is not easily accessible you may want to consider hiring a professional pest control operator.
