Does Tempo Dust 1% work on both paper nest & Mud Dauber wasps?

Our mid mid home has vertical wood slats on the exterior and up almost every single crack between slats we have found paper nests. Now as we are doing a remodel in one area of the house, we have found many nests inside up in the ceilings - both paper and mud nests. Will this work in both places? And how large of an area does one bottle cover? How early in the season can I get started?


Absolutely!  You can apply Tempo 1% Dust anywhere you see wasps, yellow jackets, and any other labeled pests are entering either your home or another structure. You can even use Tempo Dust for wasps nesting in the ground or in a nest hanging from a tree. Tempo Dust is by far our best selling dust for flying insects. It will typically wipe out a nuisance nest within 24 hours.  It is best to apply the dust in the late evening when they are not actively flying around anymore. 1 to 2 puffs from a hand duster is all that you need. This product is used at a rate of 0.5 to 1 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. Please take a moment to review our Wasp Control Guide for more information and helpful tips on eradicating these pests.
