Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pay more get stung less Harris brand wasp foam is the best wasp killer I've used. The foam envelops the nest which keeps the wasps from coming after you. Two years ago I was stung 6 times while using another brand. I sprayed the nest from 15 ft away but the wasp killer was very thin and runny. The wasps flew right out of their nest and attacked me. Sure the price "stings" the wallet but the wasps don't sting me. April 5, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Practically Useless Where do I even begin? The so-called "jet spray" isn't a jet at all, but rather comes out in a cloud like a can of air freshener. Next, the can claims to spray "up to 20 feet." Maybe if it's carried by 70mph winds! The actual range is about 4 feet at best. Now I don't know what they consider "foam" to be, but what comes out is about as foamy as Lysol spray. In all fairness, the two or three wasps that flew into the cloud did die, but the rest are alive and well (and angry!) So all things considered you'd have better luck trying to beat the wasps to death with the can. September 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK but not great. Had Yellow Jacket nest under siding in corner of house. +'s: Foam killed yellow jackets upon contact and stayed thick for several minutes. Thinned out amount of yellow jackets from a lot to moderate amount. -'s: Spray would only go about 4 feet and you couldn't spray upside down to get under siding. Also, only 16 oz. Most other sprays are 17 oz or more. No residual killing when foam dried. Relatively expensive compared to other sprays. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Yellow Jacket Killer I had tried 5 different sprays and one powder (all specifically state to eliminate yellow jackets) on the nest/ hive in a hanging plant with no luck. I decided to give this foam a chance and it has been the best product at eliminating the yellow jackets by far! I covered the whole plant and made sure to spray the main hole/entrance the best I could from about 10 feet away. The foam will dissolve within about 5-10 minutes and will turn into a liquid, so I would recommend saving some spray and spraying again for the yellow jackets trying to escape. January 4, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Overpriced! The product worked, however it took longer than expected to kill wasps. Doesn't actually kill on contact. Product is certainly overpriced! September 3, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work for me. I am sad to say that this product did not work for me. I was looking for a foam for my wooden roof eaves and getting rid of carpenter bees. This was the only foam I could find. I was pretty excited about it. Review: foam does reach 15 feet, no more; scent is fine; sprays as a foam, then immediately drops to ground and is watery. I got it all over my body. You have to immediately take a shower because it is dangerous as stated on can. it did not kill or keep away the bees. as I said, it did not work for me; perhaps it will work for your needs.
