Hi, will this product work on other kinds of ground bees? I have a variety that is small and non-stinging, but has utterly destroyed my lawn with hundreds of mounds. I've tried all kinds of ways to get rid of them. Last year I paid a lot of money to have the lawn redone, and finally put out a lot of insecticide. I don't know how the bees could live through that, but quite a large number of mounds are back. Will this product kill them? Thanks.
Asked by: Deb77
In the end, I searched Youtube videos for how to get rid of ground nesting bees, yellowjackets, etc., and saw a promising video whereby squirting Dawn dish soap down the holes worked on a nest of yellowjackets. (That person first covered the hole with a piece of window screen held down by bricks, and then used a hose to flood the hole). I filled a new condiment container with Dawn and using the narrow tube opening, was easily able to put Dawn into all of the many holes that still appeared to be active. I have not seen any more bees. I did not flood the holes and it hasn't rained yet, so I have yet to see if the lawn will be foaming later.

can I apply the product directly to the bees? How, if is a foam?

I understood this is for the nest primarily, so I don't understand how this foam could be possible apply in the air. So, If isn't possible, what to do with the flying bees in my backyard, once the nest is foamed. thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
It can be sprayed in the air, but very ineffective. Hard to hit the drones. I get them with a badminton racquet. If by chance they survive the racquet, I spray them. I also built a carpenter bee trap, but in 3 days has not captured a single one. Really only good for females looking to make a new nest.

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.

How long does it take before it starts killing bees

Asked by: Fred43
The spray will start killing listed insects on contact and continue killing them as they return to the nest and distribute the insecticide throughout.

16 oz. Aerosol Carpenter Bee and Ground-Nesting Yellow jacket Killer Foam is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 46.
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!

I have three big carpenter bees in my yard that bother me - I can't go closer to my trash bins and yard tools. After read the review here, I went to the store and bought one last night. This morning, I went out and sprayed on each holes that bees made, 2 minutes later, I found 2 out of 3 bees were on the ground. The last one is in the air still. I was very pleased and shocked. I did not think it would be this effective.

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..

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 4 out of 5 by from Product Use OK. You need to saturate the hole(s) keeping the hole sealed with a rag so the fluid doesn't just drip out while you are spraying. Really flood the hole(s) with this product. Check a little later and you will see bees struggling for life on the ground --perhaps only 2 or 3 at a time since they tried to get out of the hole nest. Just step on them. More will show up later on the ground like in the morning if you spray in the evening. Likely you could have a dozen in there which hatched over time. Spray again 48 hours later and see if more are on the ground. Sawdust will probably still be evident on the ground. After spraying again then fill the hole(s) with most any caulk. It's still possible some will remain in the wood, but likely they will be dead since you have sealed the easy escape hole(s) and flooded their home. Note that Carpenter Bees tend to show up and return to the same place annually so the review saying they returned is not because the product didn't work but that these bees were not there when you first applied the fluid. Keep checking and spray if you see any new holes to prevent a female from laying eggs. It's only the male which hovers around the wood. They like bare untreated wood. The male looks scary but cannot sting you. Only the female can sting and she is inside the nest. I hope this helps you.
