Residual activity ensures complete elimination of the nest
Whenever possible it is best to spray bee, hornet and wasp nests at night as they are less active after the sun goes down. If treating the nest at night is not possible you must take extra precautions such as wearing protective gear. Please see our article on How to Get Rid of Stinging Insect Nests
I'm a beekeeper and I remove wasp nest every day and I use this stuff all the time love it. Oil beast so once it's on them they can't talk to each other to atack you. And yes it's not good on carpenter bees best thing for them is (tri-die) dust
I only use the wasp freeze when spraying wasp nests. I went thru at least 15 cans of Raid and it did nothing. The first time I used wasp freeze I sprayed a nest that was forming in my garage. I sprayed it and ran out of my garage. I came back a couple of hours later and didn't see any wasp's around the nest. I looked down on the ground and there were about 30 dead wasp's, all in one area. It had killed them right on the spot.
As per your article, "How to Get Rid of Carpenter Bees", I tried this product on the flying adults as part of the overall treatment plan. As others have observed, this product does not kill carpenter bees very quickly if at all. They were hit directly several times with the spray but were not deterred in the least. Finally they flew off to high trees. Wasps, however, drop instantly.
Works like a charm! Very satisfied with product and price as well as the service I received. Fast delivery and just in time to handle the new seasonal wasp problem. I won't even bother with other products.
I'm looking for a wasp and hornet killer concentrate to put in my pump sprayer?
Concentrates are not considered to be contact kills, especially for wasp and hornets. Even if you got close enough with a hand pump sprayer, which do not spray that far, the spray would not kill a wasp or hornet fast enough. They would die, but not right away. You can spray surfaces so when bees land on the surface they will prick up the spray and die, but they will not die right away. The only product that provides fast knockdown of larger flying insects like wasps and hornets is Wasp Freeze, which comes in an aeorosl can but it shoots over 15 feet so you can knock them down from a safe distance.
Would Wasp Freeze help stop wasps from getting behind my siding?
I would like to know if this spray would do any good if I sparayed the area where the wasps are going in at. Do you know of any products that would decrease the pheramone scent to make the bees go somewhere else besides my house siding?
Wasp Freeze works best on exposed nests that you can spray directly. We recommned that you use a hand duster and apply a dust such as Tempo dust to the holes where the wasps are going in and out. The dust will help eliminate the wasps in the nest and any other wasps returning to the nest. Tempo dust will stay effective for several months as long as it is dry. We are not aware of a product that would eliminate the wasp pheromone to help stop wasps from returning to a particular area. After dusting in the void where the wasps have a built a nest you can try spraying the siding with a product such as Talstar P. You can spray once a month and any wasp that lands on treated areas will be eliminated within about 24 hours which should stop new wasps from being able to build a nest.
Do I need more than one can of wasp freeze for a paper wasp/hornet nest?
I have a good sized paper wasp or hornet nest under the eave of my home. I will first have to check whether this product will reach it. I am not sure whether it is best to have one person spray the nest, or have two people, at two angles, spray it. Other questions: How much of the nest will fall down and how much will stay up there and have to be manually scraped off? If I have to go up on a ladder a scrape it off isn't the whole area going to be contaminated by the spray which sounds rather toxic I will be getting the basic safety kit. for application of the spray but would I need to wear that or more to remove nest residue or if the spot needs to be repainted? There is a vent/soffit near the nest, do I need to be concerned that the toxicity will infiltrate the house? I don't imagine there are less toxic options due to what has to be achieved? I can supply photos if it would be helpful. Thank you.
It is hard to say if you will need more than one can or not without seeing the size of the nest, but it is always better to have too much than not enough. Wasp freeze is actually quite safe and once dry is not effective any longer. Wasp freeze is a contact kill only so it only is toxic to the flying insect you are shooting it at for a short time, and then once it dries it has done its damage and does not leave a residual. It will not knock the nest down. You will have to scrape it off as you suggested. If you wait a few days there should be no concern about toxicity. You should always wear gloves when handling a nest anyways. Just scrape the nest off and then using gloves place it in a trash bag and discard of it.
If a person gets sprayed with Wasp Freeze what are the side effects?
Usually, the only side effect from getting Wasp Freeze sprayed on your skin is a small amount of skin irritation. We do recommend that you wear gloves, long pants and long sleeved shirts while using any type of insecticide to avoid getting it on you.
