Yes, the Temprid SC in the Wasp and Hornet control kit will leave a residual lasting about 30 days that will continue killing wasps and hornets as they come in contact with the product that has been applied around the nest.
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.
You will mix the Temprid SC Insecticide- 8 ml per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft 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 Temprid SC, 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 Temprid SC, then shake or agitate the tank. Add the remaining volume of water, then agitate again before spraying.
*Use 2 x 8mL doses of Temprid SC 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.
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.
The products in the Wasp and Hornet Control Kit can harm bees if they contact a treated surface long enough to receive a lethal dose or are sprayed directly. To limit contact during spraying apply in the early morning or late evening when bees are less active in the area and do not apply to blooms.
We apologize but cannot comment on home remedies for removal of pests such as bleach or ammonia. We would recommend using our Wasp and Hornet Control Kit. We also have a great guide here that can help.
Cicada Killers are actually benificial insects and will not harm you, your son or your dog. They are not aggressive insects just ominous looking because of their size, and you would literally have to take one and force it on your skin to get it to bite you. If you are wanting to eliminate them, the best way to treat is to use a dust in each hole in the yard. This may seem extremely time consuming and tedious but it is truly the most effective and thorough treatment method. Dusting the holes with something like Tempo 1% Dust will allow it to flow through the nest better than a liquid. You could also use the Talstar P or the liquid version of Tempo-Tempo SC Ultra-since it has a quicker knock down to control the surface areas they could land to help control new ones that enter the area. Dust the holes and treat plant/lawn surfaces with Tempo every 30 days through the season. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Honey bees are in steep decline and the law dictates they should only be killed after a bee keeper has been consulted and cannot help safely remove the colony. You can locate local bee keepers by contacting your local cooperative extension office. If this is not an option for you, you can use a hand duster to apply a dust product such as Tempo Dust into and around the area where the bees seem to be gaining access to your home. Over a period of a couple of days to a week (timeline will depend on how many bees are contacting the treated area) this will kill off the colony that has taken up residence in your home. Any insecticide applications should be done very early in the morning or very late in the evening when the bees are less active. After the bees have been eliminated it is important to remove the bee hive from the void where the bees were nesting. Failure to remove the hive can lead to mold issues and secondary infestation from hive beetles and other insects. If the bee hive is in an area that is not easily accessible you may want to consider hiring a professional pest control operator.
