    Effectively and safe

    Those wasps built 4 nests on top of my bathroom window (gap between regular window & storm window). I ordered two cans of Wasp-X Wasp & Hornet Spray online and used it around midnight. Opened a little gap on top of the window, sprayed into the gap, those wasps die instantly and drop their body down to the bottom of the window.  Its works fast and efficiently, plus no strong smell, not even a single wasp attacked me, so it’s very safe as well.  I’m very happy about this product.

    Effective, the foaming action is a major plus!

    By Jq on 09/06/2011

    Took care of basketball-size, bald-faced hornet nest that hung 8ft over a porch sidewalk. After dusk, I used a Gotcha Sprayer+telescoping pole from a window b/c they're aggressive multi-stingers. Since their nest has only one access at bottom, shooting the foam right up the hole clogs it and comes to contact on any of them coming out. Used a whole can, spraying every 5 minutes to keep it clogged. Watch them crawl out and drop to the ground. Beware of a guarding hornet(s) outside, found one on the porch storm door afterwards. Used another can the next afternoon to make sure of no hornet activity. Spent about 1/5 of a professional job.

    i can't tell you how HAPPY i was to find the day after using this that the yellow jackets were gone! there was a large nest between the house and ground. though the can is large and i thought i would get more than one application, it was empty before i knew it. BUT, it WORKED! and didn't need more. i needed a quick solution, didn't want to go through the hassle of bait and wait... now a few weeks later and still no yellow jackets! bottom line, IT WORKS!!!

    Wasp - X

    By Erica on 07/27/2012

    Verified Purchase

    The spray worked, but no better than a cheaper can of Raid Wasp and Hornet spray. I was disappointed on the distance of the spray. It didn't spray any further than about 10 ft.

    Works Great

    By Gordon on 11/04/2015

    I used up three canisters of hornet spray trying to eliminate a nest that was buried deep in a rock wall. The typical big box store brands would only kill the wasps that were outside of the nest. I looked online for a product that has a residual effect and I found WASP- X & Hornet Spray. Most of the wasps died after the first spraying. The next day I sprayed again, no more wasps. I highly recommend this product on hornet nests that are in hard to get areas.

Questions & Answers

Q
Is there an option on the product FastOut CS Foam to remove the tubing and spray a jet of foam?

We are looking for a product to shoot a jet of foam a safe distance to cover and kill wasp/bee nests. we used to use Wasp-A-Foam with good results, but can no longer find that product. The tube system on FastOut will put a person too close to insects.

A
Fast Out does not work as a jet spray. We do carry a product that does just what you describe though. It is called Wasp X. Wasp-X spray can reach nests up to 20 feet away. Upside down spraying allows for hard to reach nests. The water-based formulation is easy on plants and the active ingredient is safer for the environment yet tough on pests. This product is a foam, and should be applied in 1 second bursts.  The product will hit the nest and expand.  You should not hold the top of the can down and continually spray.

Q
We have wasps and I believe they are in our chimney. What should we do?

I also saw what seem like carpenter bees? We get one or two in the house every few days, but can't find a hive in the window areas. But when we're outside they seem to be swarming all over our chimney top.

A
Having a nest in a chimney can be a tricky thing to try and handle on your own as a homeowner. While it is something you can do, it takes extra precautions to make sure that you dont end up with a dangerous situation on your hands. Many customers hire a professional for this type of removal and you may want to do the same. If doing this yourself, you will need to first get a very fine mesh screen much like a window screen, and tack it up on the opening to your fireplace where it meets your home. This is to ensure that if any of the nest goes down the chimney, they do not flood into your home and create a hazardous situation inside. Once you have ensure that the screen is tightly in place on the inner side of the homes fireplace, you can go towards treating the nest itself. We would recommend something like Wasp-X which is an aerosol much like other wasp sprays you would buy, except it foams to engulf and expand around the nest and trap the insects in it to reduce the amount that fly back towards you as you spray. You will want to be sure to have on protective clothing to prevent yourself from stings should some of the nest fly up towards you as you are treating the nest from above. You may want to look at getting our Complete Bee Suit to make sure you are protected the same way the professionals would be as you treat. Once the nest has been sprayed, quickly leave the area and give the product time to do its job and eliminate the nest. Once you can tell that the nest is dead you can go about removing it from your chimney, and then clean the chimney to get rid of any chemical residual left behind by the Wasp-X
