Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Remember when bugs actually died with a quick spray? This WORKS perfectly! This is the real thing (like it used to be years ago) - and works perfectly; just follow the directions. I rose an hour before sunrise, so I could get them all at once, before yellow jackets become active. Use the supplied nozzle extension, and give a quick spray to the underground entrance, then shove that straw down the hole, spraying and poking around, feeling for secondary passages. The stuff foams up, and clings to nest walls and passages. (Empty the entire can.) Not a single hornet escaped! 24 hours later, bury the opening with a shovelfull of dirt. Your done! The $4 price is high - but well worth it for something that actually works . . . June 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 19, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Yellow jackets I bought this can 4 days ago and used it as directed. I followed the directions to the letter and the yellow jackets dug around it. So last night I emptied half the can into the hole(s) and this morning I walked out to check it and they dug a hole though it. So my recommendation is don't buy this product and try something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WORKS The product worked just like the lable said. It took care of our yellow jacket problem. October 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. July 13, 2013
