Close all vents and blowers located on the windward side. Contact all wood surfaces.

BEES, HORNETS, YELLOW JACKETS AND WASPS:
It is generally advisable to treat nests in the evening when insects are less active and have returned to the nest. Using hand or powder duster or other suitable means, with extension tubes, if necessary, thoroughly dust nest and entrance and surrounding areas where insects alight. Nests in wall voids can be located by listening with your ear against the wall. To treat, drill a hole in the area. For best results, check nests carefully one or two days after treatment to ensure complete kill. Then remove and destroy nest(s) to prevent emergence or newly hatched insects. If removal is not feasible, retreat the nest, if necessary. Do not use this product to treat overhead nests.
