This brand won't reach 7 feet spraying straight. It doesn't kill wasp either unless you soak them with 1/3 can if they ever hit the ground.

Answer: 
Definitely not. The can I bought barely sprayed 7ft horizontally before falling 5ft. At 7ft it was mostly a mist anyways. When I used the spray, the air was still, no breeze what so ever. The 27ft is a lie. A complete and utter lie. However, it sure did kill an entire hornet's nest. Read my review for details.

Answer: 
Based on my experience it will only reach 7ft horizontally before falling 5ft. My can sprayed MAYBE 7 foot horizontally before dropping 5 ft. In other words, I held the can straight out from my body and sprayed it horizontally. The height of the can was approx 5 ft from the ground. Within 7 foot of horizontal travel, the spray hit the ground and was mostly diffused into a mist by that time anyways.

You need to watch where they are coming out of the lawn and look for a small ( couple inches) cleared spot with a nice round hole the size of your index finger that is the entrance to their nest. There will be constant activity there. Spectracide ( surprise - this one actually works!) makes a Carpenter Bee - Ground Nesting Wasp foaming spray that actually does what it says it does! Wait until a cool, dark evening when the activity has slowed down and follow the instructions - including filling in the hole after a day or so. It has a residual effect that will kill any returning wasps as well. Read Less

This brand won't kill much of anything. Buy Raid. It will not kill them all in one use. It will leave a ring of dead grass around the hole after multiple uses. Again, this brand will not work.

Answer: 
The standard formula won't kill your lawn, but we do recommend an alternative product for your specific problem. Spectracide Carpenter Bee & Ground Nesting Yellow Jacket Killer uses a foaming formula to expand where yellow jackets live to kill the whole nest.

You can use it near a pool (make sure humans and pets aren't around till it's dry and you get rid of the bodies as stingers can still sting barefoot kids/adults and even pets).
You worded your question "over a swimming pool".. I would never spray this into the water of the pool as it is poison. If you have a nest very close to pool, I would make sure to spray opposite direction of the pool water to keep spray out of the water. (make sure its not windy out) And do it either when adult wasp/hornets are gone from nest (also destroy nest if you can before adults return to it). But if adults on the nest, wait till sundown as they are slightly slower to attack. Wear proper protection: At minimal plastic gloves/eye goggles, loose fitted clothing, even better a bee suit with eye protection and gloves if you are allergic like me. Good Luck. Read Less

This spray doesn't work. Use raid for direct killing. Buy the wasp, yellow jacket traps sold by Home Depot for keeping an area free of wasps and other stingers. Refills are sold at Home Depot as well and should be replaced every 2 weeks.

Answer: 
I wouldn't recommend it. Read the MSDS of the ingredients and you'll know for sure. The can clearly states to avoid skin/eye contact and using basic logic I'd say that spraying above a body of water will mean the water will become contaminated.

No idea, however, there is a different product that states it is ok to use on electrical components. This product didn't state it was safe to do so, so I'd be safe and assume it is not safe.

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 157 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not at ALL what I expected.. Be careful! You have to be very careful thinking that these evil creatures will die upon contact with the product. They WILL NOT… As the product dried, they all flew right back and kept on eating and flying around… I never saw one wasp on the ground where I had sprayed…Be ready to RUN like Forrest Gump because they will try to dive bomb your face in an instant! Ill definitely spend a little more and buy the other brands. Funny thing.. I had 1 left of the other brand BUT thought this might do the trick too… Nope.. I was highly mistaken! Bee Careful!!! lol August 11, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 50/50 killed or alive This was a dissapointment because many of the wasp weren't killed. Some cases it worked but it was hit or miss and i got stung 2 times because of this poor product. When sprayed this covered the wasp like a foam. I've used other products that when sprayed the wasp died upon contact but not this product. July 9, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not for yellow jackets This spray worked on wasps after spraying the nest twice, but never did kill a yellow jacket after multiple sprays. Might be I bought the wrong spray, but I won't try it again. It was very handy being delivered to my house, saving me a hour drive time. October 4, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wasp Weapon? This year a wide variety of wasps and hornets were determined to build nests on my front porch. I needed an insecticide that would kill the bugs without putting me in harms way. Spectracide Wasp and Hornet Killer did the trick for me, but it did not kill all the insects on contact. It did, however, spray out far enough so that I could target the nests without having to be too close. I had to apply the spray two days in a row in order to completely eliminate the problem. I am satisfied with the outcome, but I am not sure that this product is better than any other insecticide spray. August 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't do much killing Either I have superbees in my yard, or this stuff is not strong enough. I swear they are laughing at me when I spray them with this stuff, Maybe a few buzz around irritated a bit, but haven't seen any dead ones. Nest is still there, just as much worker bee to and fro as before I drenched the whole area several times. I guess it's probably safe for the environment - about as harmful as foamy water. September 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Did the required job The wasp spray did the required job. The wasps were immediately unable to fly and their death seemed to take just a minute. I did wait the required 24 hours before removing the nest per the directions and noted that the wasps returning to the nest had also died. The only thing that I found dissapointing was the distance of the spray. Some other products have a longer spray distance. It required me to use a ladder to reach the higher nest positions which could have been dangerous if the spray did not immediately work. September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DISAPPOINTED I bought this spray because it is specifically for wasps and hornets and because it claims to spray a long stream thereby making it a little safer to spray a nest from a distance. However, this can does not spray a stream anywhere close to 27 ft. This product sprays messy foam wide and close and gets all over the arm this is spraying. A can of hair spray works better than this aerosol spray. I do not recommend this product at all. I have since found that the safest way to spray into a wasp nest is to use a hand pump sprayer with a long nozzle and fill the sprayer with a liquid insecticide. August 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! I am an avid fan and user of Spectracide products. The Wasp & Hornet Killer lives up to the Spectrazide brand and quality. We have a significant problem with wasps, and red wasps in the spring and summer. This product does the trick! It sprays about 27 feet and kills instantly making this product effective and much safer to use. The formula is non-staining. The ingredients consist of: Prallethrin 0.025%, Lambda Cyhalothrin 0.010%, Other/Petroleum Distillates 99.965%, and effectively kills wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, tent caterpillars, scorpions, and ants. I have compared the cost and have found this product is more economical and works as well, actually better, than the other leading brands available. There is a money back guarantee. December 31, 2015
