    yellow jack spray

    By Galen on 10/16/2014

    It doesn't kill the nests. I sprayed into the nest after the bee's were all settled if for the night about 9pm and they all came out the next morning. So much for killing them instantly.

    Spectracide wasp and hornet spray value pack

    By Bobbie on 05/25/2017

    Foamed and dripped for about 2 ft. Both cans. Wet wasp but they just flew off or just came back to nest. I had to stomp them to kill them. Bought Raid. Sprayed the distant and killed them!

    Complete waste of your money

    By Ed on 07/25/2017

    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.

    Inaccurate

    By James on 07/25/2019

    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.
