This product is a complete waste of your money. You can hose a wasp down 4 + times and it will still get up and fly away. They may die eventually but after you have bought 6-8 cans of spray to kill a handful of wasps..... Find something better, this isn't it.
Does NOT kill on contact.
Does NOT spray "up to" 27 feet.
This product WILL stain some siding.
But most importantly, this product DOES NOT KILL ON CONTACT.
I sprayed a nest and it took at least an hour or so for the wasp to stop moving.
