Customer Questions & Answers

How long does it take before it starts killing bees

Asked by: Fred43
Simply spray direct into the hole. It creates form which covers the hole, and disappear in about 20 minutes. I didn't stay around to see them bees die, but I will say immediately.

Why is this product not carried in Ft Walton Beach FL store.

Will this affect the color/appearance of the wood? I have not stained the wood yet.

Carpenter bees are boring into the treated lumber we used to build a pergola last fall. We are planning to stain it in the coming weeks.
Asked by: Ben
Hi Ben. While this spray is a non-staining formula, because your wood is unstained, we do recommend testing first on a small, inconspicuous area of your pergola before you treat a larger spot.

Yes this product specifically states do not let it come in contact with your skin and do not allow household pets near it until after the area is dry.

For use against Carpenter bees: Does it have residual action? Does it have to sprayed into the opening of the carpenter bees burrow?

I have carpenter bee infestation in the gap between the siding of the house and the hanging border of the roof i.e I cannot see the exact location of the bees' nest. I see the bee entering from a 2 inch wide space. (along the length of the roof about 20 ft long). Mostly they are making holes along the side of the roof and not towards the wall. The nest openings are likely to be on a vertical surface (anti-gravity). Would this product work or should I get someone to spray the saw-dust product?
Asked by: Bahosh
This product will probably work well for you as long as you can reach the entrance hole easily. You'll want to spray into infested areas where you're seeing carpenter bee activity. Leave the entrance hole open for 48 hours after application to allow the bees to contact and distribute the insecticide throughout the nest galleries. Then plug the entrance hole with a piece of wooden dowel coated with carpenter’s glue or wood putty. Plugging the hole will prevent reinfestation of old nesting tunnels and reduce the chances of wood decay. Good luck to you!

spray distance

The bees are in the siding on the 2nd story of our house. How far does the spray reach?
Asked by: Becky
Hi Becky. This product is not a jet spray, so it won't work to reach the second story of your home from the ground.

will this kill regular bees

Asked by: Roscoe
Hi Roscoe. No, it wouldn't be an effective way to take care of wasps, standard yellowjackets or hornets. We recommend Spectracide Wasp & Hornet Killer instead:

Will this also kill my lawn? I have approximately 6x6 feet of lawn infested with Yellow Jackets that have dug nests

There are so many nests, I can't even locate them.i tried to, but my lawn is so long I can't see close enough to the ground to find the hole of their nests. I want to cut my lawn but I get attacked by the wasps when I try to do so. Can I just spray my 6x6 lawn patch? Or is this meant to be shot directly into their holes? Will it harm my lawn?
Asked by: danielle
Hi Danielle. It's meant to be sprayed directly into the nest. Spray at dawn or dusk (times of decreased stinging insect activity). The spray won't harm your lawn.

Customer Reviews

16 oz. Aerosol Carpenter Bee and Ground-Nesting Yellow jacket Killer Foam is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burrowing Yellow Jackets I purchased this out of sheer desperation to combat several nests of burrowing Yellow-Jackets in my yard. My neighbor's recommended pouring some gas into their burrows and setting them afire (yea-right!). Getting to the point.... I followed directions and after a early morning and late evening application all were on their way to Yellow-Jacket Heaven! 48 hrs later NO ACTIVITY is noticed and we are again able to enjoy our yard with no threat of being bombarded with hundreds of pesky little suckers, their MEAN, AGGRESIVE and deserve to DIE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killed Yellow Jackets within the hour Working on my front yard I noticed multiple yellow jackets around a particular shrub, after some investigation I found there was a small nest. I bought this product and sprayed from about 5 feet away and within the hour the hive died.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised Product worked as advertised. The only issue i had was getting the top off to use the product. It was a good thing I bought 2. The first one I broke the nozzle off. The second I was much more careful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Completely useless Doesn't foam, doesn't kill yellow jackets and just doesn't work. Does cost you money and does asks you to use it near the stinging insects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kills yellow jackets on first application Using the nozzle supplied, I sprayed about 10 feet away toward the hole. One hour later no bees flying around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product for Carpenter Bee control! After reading the previous comments, I had to add my two cents. I had carpenter bees above my garage door (very hard to reach place, have to be up close), and they had at least 5 different entry points dug out. I sprayed the product in all holes, and watched the bees drop out dead! I counted at least 15 bees, and all within the first 15 minutes. To the above comment that this spray doesn't kill on contact, are you sure those were carpenter bees? It worked really well for me, and I do recommend this product highly. I did use up the whole can, and my next step will be to cover the holes and paint the wood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for yellow jackets I have yellow jackets in my soffit, and I sprayed it 4 times with no luck. I even tried during the day when they are active and they walk right over this stuff. Waste of money..
