For Control of Nests of Wasps, Yellow Jackets and Hornets: The best time to spray the nest is in the early morning or early evening when the air temperature is cooler, most insects are in the nest, and little activity is observed around the nest opening. Spray only if the air is still. Stand at a safe distance from the nest. Do not stand directly under the nest. Hold container upright at arm’s length and point the actuator at the nest. First spray the opening of the nest. Then spray the rest of the nest until it is saturated. Treated insects may fall out of the nest and die. Any insects returning to the nest after treatment will be killed. Wait 48 hours before removing the nest. Hose off foliage of desirable plants contacted with spray.
For scorpions, stand 3-4 feet away and thoroughly cover the insect. Make sure scorpions are dead before removing.
