Product Overview

The Wasp and Hornet Control Kit has the professional insecticides needed to kill wasps and hornets around your home or business. Cyzmic CS is a concentrated liquid insecticide that has two active ingredients for long-term control of listed pests, and PT Wasp Freeze II Wasp and Hornet Spray is a ready-to-use aerosol that knocks down flying insects quickly, spraying up to 20 feet and reducing the risk of stings. Unlike many wasp sprays, PT Wasp Freeze II Wasp and Hornet Spray also has residual effect and a unique foaming action that continue to eliminate nests after the spray has dried.

It is important to properly Identify  the insect you are treating and to do a thorough Inspection of the property so that you can treat all possible locations where wasps may nest.

You will need a pressurized sprayer such as a hand pump sprayer to apply the Cyzmic CS.

***Care should be taken when inspecting for and treating a wasp nest. You should wear long sleeves, long pants, closed-toe shoes and a hat. We recommend purchasing a bee suit if inspection in confined areas is necessary. You can help reduce the chance of being stung by conducting an inspection of the suspected area at night when the wasps are less active. If you are allergic to wasp stings, we strongly recommend you leave the inspection and the treatment to a professional.***

Details

The professional products in our Wasp Control Kit provide both a quick knockdown of wasps and hornets and residual activity to prevent new infestations. You should always work to Identify the pest you are treating and conduct a thorough Inspection of the property before using insecticides so that you can have the most successful Wasp Treatment possible.

As with all pests, practice good sanitation around the yard to reduce nesting sites and to Prevent wasp, hornet, and yellow jacket infestations. Taking some time to trim trees and shrubs, remove or reduce piles of yard waste, empty collected water sites, and clean outdoor trash cans will minimize the possibility of wasps taking over your property.

It is also important to treat nests quickly to keep the populations of these dangerous pests low.

**Always be cautious when treating for wasps and other stinging insects! Wear protective clothing including long pants, long sleeves, socks, closed-toed shoes, and a hat, or consider a Professional Bee Suit for the best protection. This is also important if the nest is in a confined area and/or in a position from which it may be difficult to move quickly. If you have severe reactions to stings, we recommend hiring a professional to treat for you.**

How to Apply the Wasp Control Kit

We recommend treating for wasps and hornets in the late evening when wasps are less active and most likely to be in the nest. This reduces both the risk of stings and the need for retreatment.

Treating a nest directly will always have the best results. When treating wasps or hornets, you will only achieve complete control if you can locate and treat the nest.

STEP 1 - SPRAY - Cyzmic CS Insecticide

*Cyzmic CS is a liquid concentrate that must be diluted with water and applied with a pressurized sprayer such as a Chapin 1 gallon hand pump sprayer.

*If you are not already wearing gloves, we recommend wearing gloves such as Nitrile Chemical Resistant Gloves when handling, mixing, and applying insecticides.

*To mix Cyzmic CS, first shake the concentrate well. Add 1/3 - 1/2 of the desired volume of water to your spray tank, add the desired amount of Cyzmic CS, then shake or agitate the tank. Add the remaining volume of water, then agitate again before spraying.

*Use 1 x .4 oz doses of Cyzmic CS per gallon of water to treat wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets.

*If the nest poses an immediate threat, first treat a 2-3 foot area surrounding the nest with a fan or cone spray.

*Adjust spray nozzle to a fine pin stream, then spray directly into the center of the nest.

*Once the application has dried, remove and destroy the nest, if possible.

*If the nest cannot be removed, repeat treatment in 7-14 days to kill any newly emerged insects.

*Always keep other people and pets out of the treatment area while treating and until treatment is dry.

*If needed, use any remaining amount of Cyzmic CS to treat the surrounding area or as a perimeter or ornamental treatment for general pest control.

*Do not store finished solution for more than 24 hours. Store unused concentrate in a cool, dry area out of reach of children and pets and out of direct sunlight.

STEP 2 - CONTACT SPRAY - PT Wasp Freeze II Wasp and Hornet Spray

PT Wasp Freeze II is a ready-to-use insecticide made specifically for wasps, hornets, and similar stinging insects. PT Wasp Freeze II is a great tool to keep on hand for quick knockdown of flying insects in the area when you need to treat a nest directly, reaching up to 20 feet away. PT Wasp Freeze II also has residual activity after it dries. PT Wasp Freeze II also has a foaming agent to help expand inside and around nests for maximum coverage.

*Always shake can well before spraying and keep can upright.

*Do not aim directly at people or animals, and spray downwind when applying outdoors.

*Spray PT Wasp Freeze II directly at nests in short, 1-2 second bursts. Do NOT apply as a continuous spray.

*Spray will reach up to 20 feet.

*Spray directly into nests whenever possible.

*Allow spray to dry at least 24 hours before removing nests.

*PT Wasp Freeze II may be used on the outside of structures, with particular attention paid to eaves, doorways, under decks, or other areas where labeled pests are found.

*Use PT Wasp Freeze II indoors in areas such as attics, barns, mechanical rooms, and garages. Do NOT apply PT Wasp Freeze II in inhabitable areas indoors such as living rooms, bedrooms, or kitchens.

    This worked when other sprays didn't

    By Lila on 10/06/2017

    I had a very large yellow jacket nest under my bay window. The nest was probably very extensive, but there was no way to know without tearing out the bottom of the window. We sprayed several times with those sprays easily available at the home center, which worked before on other nests, but the wasps just seemed to ignore it. Probably because the nest was so large. Then we used the Wasp-X kit. This worked very well. It did take time, but we could see that the wasps were dying. Eventually we saw the queen too. But all were killed, in the end.

Q
WIll the Wasp and Hornet Control Kit work for a paper wasp nest that is inside the siding of my house?

I can see the wasps going in and out, but I will not be able to directly hit the nest, because it is under the siding. Would you recommend this product or something else? I live in Michigan. I believe they are paper wasps, because they build nests that are open, without a cover.

A

We recommend 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.  It usually works within 24 to 48 hours. You want to go up to the opening where they are flying in and out of at dusk or at night when they are not active and puff twice directly into the hole.  Then pull the duster out and puff directly at the hole to cover the opening from about 5 inches away.  This is the most efficient and fastest way to eliminate a bee/yellow jacket/wasp nest.

Q
Do I need to know EXACTLY where there nest is??

So I know the nest on top of our guest bedroom roof, under our carport, where a bunch of new plumbing pipes are being stored. Can I just spray up in there and around that area? or do I really need to find the actual nest?

A
To eradicate a wasp or hornets nest, you really need to know where the nest is.  Blindly spraying with the Wasp and Hornet Control Kit would not guarantee that the problem could go away and may even pose more of a threat to the applicator.

Q
What can we use to kill bees in a tree?

These bees were very large and only came out at night this year we are infested with a bug we aren't sure what kind it looks like an ant or termite there are big holes at the bottom of the tree and smaller holes all around the tree do you have any idea what it is and how to treat it I m afraid the tree will be hollow on the inside due to this problem

A

We would recommend to use a Wasp and Hornet Control Kit. Also, since it looks like more than one thing is happening, we recommend to contact a professional or you local cooperative extension office to speak with an entomologist, so they can also help you identify what insect(s) you are dealing with before you proceed with any treatment.
