Q. How many treatments are needed through out a normal season for wasp control for a 6 acre home owners association?

Q. which spray to use to get rid of wasp?
I live in a condo on the 3rd floor, and recently my bathroom got some wasp. I don't know how they get in there. I'm wondering which is the best product to use to get rid or prevent wasp from coming in?
A. There is no real way to prevent them from coming in unless you find their entry point and seal the entry point. Sometimes, if you have a nest nearby and you frequently go outside or leave the window open, they can enter your home by cracks and crevices. Lambdastar is a product you can use to treat the windows and all doors that open to the outside. Also, you will need a fast knockdown spray like Wasp Freeze.

Q. How do I kill wasps in my french drain??
I have a french drain that runs from my back yard to under the fence in an underground PVC pipe all the way through the front, and finally into the street (broken through the curb, which I had put in for drainage. There is at least one wasp nest, as they continue to fly out of the metal grades that the rain water runs into. I have not been stung yet, but am very allergic to them, and they seem quite aggressive when I try to work in the garden near the metal grades. Is there a wasp killer bait or something like it that I can slip into the openings of the french drain grades?
A. If you cannot reach the hive, we recommend you use items such as Delta dust around the surrounding area. Basically, the pesticide will remain on the surface until the wasps come into contact with the product. Once it does, it will take it back to its nest. They should be under control in about 2-3 weeks.
Q. Do you have a product that will not damage my galvanized steel??
We have a barndominium- don't want to spray anything that will mess with the galvanized steel, but need to get rid of nests on porches.
A. One of our best products is Wasp-Freeze, which offers an instant knock down for wasps. Because it is an oil-based chemical, it may leave a bit of residue. However, you should be able to wash it with water to remove the residue.
Q. how to get rid of ground wasp cacade killers ?
A. Delta Dust is the product that we recommend for wasp control. Since cicada killers can be particularly aggressive, we recommend that you wear all necessary protective gear like a bee suit. Also, apply the insecticide during the evening when the activity is at its lowest. We also recommend that until you are able to get rid of the infestation, continue to apply Delta Dust once a week. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 1-800-788-4142.
Q. Killing wasps inside the housing of a hot tub?
I have a wasp nest inside a wood covered base of a hot tub that is very hard to get to. I do have a small entry area (3") that I could put a smoke bomb, if they work. Do you sell such and would that kill or detor wasps in there?
A. We recommend puffing Delta Dust into the entry area. If it is hard to reach the nest, we recommend using a duster that would be able to puff the dust onto the nest, as well as the surrounding areas. Delta dust has a 5-6 month residual.

Q. Red Wasps, yellow jackets, and sweat bees - oh my!?
We are a new tree trimming - cutting business. We have come across many dead trees here in the south. We have a tree that is feeding or supplying wood to these "PESTS". There are thousands of them. What can we spray on the tree to get them away long enough for us to get it down and away from our client's house?
A. We recommend using a jetspray wasp killer to control the bees and wasps around the immediate area that you are working on.

Q. Wasp control associated with outdoor restaurant?
We have an outdoor seating area associated with our restaurant. Seasonally we encounter wasps that make serving in this seating area uncomfortable. The restaurant is in a rural environment (mountainous outdoor area. What can be done to reduce/control this problem?
A. Unfortunately, there is no real action you can take to prevent the wasps, but we do recommend regular pest control maintenance with a residual insecticide like Suspend SC around the perimeter of the restaurant and also on the ornamental plants in areas that they frequently fly around. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
Q. is there a wasp container i can get to draw the wasps away from our seating area?
is there a wasp container that will draw the wasps away from our seating area
A. We do not carry a wasp bait or wasp container. We do have bait traps for yellow jackets, but it may not be effective for other species of bees or wasps. We recommend using an instant knockdown jet spray that will kill the wasps on contact. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
Q. Wasp/yellow jacket extermination?
I am going on my 3rd season of dealing with wasp/yellow jacket (unsure exactly, but they are black and yellow)problem. They are somehow gaining access to my home. We have two dogs/doggie door and in 2 seasons it started with a nest being built above our back door (above doggie door) on the soffit board of our 2 story home. We removed the nest and sprayed it. 2 weeks later more were present in our home. We walked exterior of home and observed them flying around fireplace so we started a fire and they left. We also found some a nest in the entry porch of our home and treated. We are unsure if these are isolated nests or if they have built a nest somewhere in attic and traveling down into the home. Most exterminator services are telling us there is no preventative treatment for this they can only removed nests as found (which we are already doing on an ongoing basis).Im wondering if it is possible to apply drione dust to attic space and around exterior surfaces to resolve this issue.
A. We do not believe that there is an extended "base" nest and that these are most likely new nests that are being built. There is no real way to prevent them from nesting, but you can apply a residual contact insecticide that comes in a form of either a liquid concentrate that must be mixed and sprayed like Suspend SC or a wet-able powder that is mixed with water and sprayed like Demon WP. In the attic, you can apply a dust product, but insecticides in isolated areas like the attic for wasp or bee control is really only effective if you are able to locate a nest and treat the nest directly. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
Q. what is a good wasp spray for the house?
I'm looking for a wasp spray that I can spray on the outside of my house. They are always flying around the outside of the house making it hard to enjoy going out in the yard. They are making nest in every crack and crevice. If I have the car parked for any length of time they start making nest in them. I want something that will leave a residue and keep killing them.
A. Sorry to hear about your wasp problem. It must be very annoying to have them fly around the outside of your home. I would recommend a product called Wasp Freeze for the initial removal of the existing nests. Removing the nests will force the wasps to relocate. Then I would recommend you follow up with a residual insecticide such as Demon WP or Demand CS and spray on any surfaces which have been previously occupied or are potential areas for the wasps to relocate their nests. The residual insecticide will help prevent new nests from forming on the applied areas. When using the Wasp Freeze to remove the existing nests, we recommend that you work during darker hours of the day such as just before sunrise or right before sunset as the day grows darker. These are the times when they are least active and are dormant in their nests. It is also important that you DO NOT spray the wasp freeze from directly in front of the nest. Instead it is best to spray the Wasp Freeze from an angle, attacking the nest from the side. Continue to spray the Wasp Freeze on the nest and you will begin to see the wasps drop to the ground. After treating the nest wait a couple hours or even a day before removing the nest. The Wasp Freeze will also leave a residue on the surface of the nest for any straggling wasps that may have arrived to the nest late. Good luck with the treatment!
Q. Wasps in one of my picket fence poles?
I have wasps drilling a hole in one of my picket fence poles that surrounds my porch. It's drilling into the side of the pole and leaving saw dust on the floor of the porch. I don't see no nest. How do I get rid of them?
A. I would recommend the use of Delta Dust. Delta dust is a moisture proof dust so it's great for outdoor use. You will need to puff some of the dust along the entrance way of the holes. It is preferred that you treat before sunrise or after sun set because that is when the wasps are least active. When applying the dust you should not stand directly in front of the holes, instead puff from the sides... Bees will usually attack the first thing they see when they come out, so this tip is for your safety.
Q. wasp and bees?
