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

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
I wouldn't recommend doing that it is better to apply in the extreme early morning or late evening after the bees have gone back into their hole. To try and apply it directly to the bees during the daytime you're risking injury.

Answer: 
The yellowjackets seemed to be paralyzed when in contact with the foam, but it's not a shooting spray. I think it's designed for application into nest openings.

Answer: 
Without the straw you can spray this directly on the bees, but I usually buy spectracide pro for that instead, which will kill flying carpenter bees in my experience and we have tons usually. I sprayed a carpenter bee on my porch today like that because it was all I had and it killed it quick, but it wastes the foam quicker.

Answer: 
Right, this product is designed for application to the nest only. After you treat the nest, allow the insects to distribute the foam throughout to kill as many carpenter bees or yellowjackets as possible, then close the opening after the prescribed amount of time on the can. Generally, treating this way will kill the entire colony so that you don't have to worry about killing insects in the air (which Read More

This foam is ok to use if you have kids or dogs, but they should stay away from the treated areas until they're completely dry. We should also say that this foaming product is intended for use against carpenter bees and ground-nesting yellowjackets. We recommend Spectracide Wasp & Hornet Killer instead for above-ground nests: Read More

Answer: 
I believe the answer is yes. I sprayed several holes last year and killed plenty of adult bees. I have seen very little activity around the shed this year were we have as many as 30 holes from carpenter bees.

Answer: 
Based off everything i read about the chemicals in this product. I would say after you spray the playset, hose it down thoroughly to get any residue that is left behind off the playset. You could probably even just use some outdoor cleaner that attaches to the hose to clean the playset.
I am recommending only to be on the safe side.

Answer: 
Hi Maria. Sure. You can spray this foam into any active carpenter bee tunnel. Spray and keep the kids away for a couple of days while you wait for the bees to distribute the insecticide throughout the nest. Then plug the entrance hole with wood to prevent reinfestation.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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.. August 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by read instructions - no good For ground yellow jackets, this didnt work at all. I think i actually have more now that I have applied twice. July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow Very Happy For years I been trying different products to try and get rid of the very many Carpenter Bees that have drilled holes into my shed and made my backyard home for them it was way too many I could not tend to my plants or have a cook out do to the bees.. I read the reviews about this product and thought I would try it out. Wow first application I sprayed the foam in each whole if u do it slow its less of a splash everywhere but the bees started to drop out of the holes I did not even know so many was in there.... After a hour I had a hand full of dead bees. Will check tomorrow to see if any more are there but so far so good,,,, ,No other product I tried worked this fast and this well. April 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carpenter Bee Foam Product is great if used to spray into holes bees have created and are inside. However, it is largely ineffective if used to try to combat the bees in flight - the bees are too quick and seem to sense the stream coming. I recommend the development of a spray product which would create an area coverage to knock down the bees in flight - I would definitely buy such a product. This would help by getting rid of the bees as they form up and search to enter holes or create new ones. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happy with product I have carpenter bees getting into the siding of my house. I sprayed this foam and it worked great. Bees were coming out in a lethargic state. Im happy and i will definitely buy more cans for future use. April 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great Used one can n killed them quick. Went out a few hours later and i did not see any buzzing around April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Killed the bees in the holes in my deck quickly. I sprayed this in all the holes in my deck and noticed bees dropping out of the holes shortly afterwards. I would highly recommend this to kill the carpenter bees as I just bought it today and noticed immediate results. May 1, 2015
