Product Overview

  • Kills carpenter bees and ground-nesting yellow jackets on contact
  • Spray foam can be used in hard-to-reach areas
  • Use outdoors on tunnels, holes and nest where insects live
Spectracide Carpenter Bee & Ground-Nesting Yellowjacket Killer Foaming Aerosol expands to hard-to-reach areas where insects live. The extension tube helps to direct spray into target treatment areas. For carpenter bees, treat active tunnels where activity has been observed. 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 to prevent reinfestation of old nesting tunnels and reduce the chances of wood decay. For ground-nesting yellowjackets, use the extension tube to spray Spectracide Carpenter Bee & Ground-Nesting Yellowjacket Killer Foaming Aerosol directly into holes in the ground where yellowjacket activity has been observed. After 24 hours, cover the hole with soil. For best results, spray early in the morning or late in the evening when yellowjacket activity is low and most yellowjackets are in the nest. Read the entire label before use.

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: pris
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.

16 oz. Aerosol Carpenter Bee and Ground-Nesting Yellow jacket Killer Foam is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAKE SURE TO SHAKE THE CAN ! The spray is watery and tends to not foam up as well unless you shak... MAKE SURE TO SHAKE THE CAN ! The spray is watery and tends to not foam up as well unless you shake the can really good before you start to spray . If the spray becomes watery again ... shake the can some more. WEAR GLOVES, you can use your gloved finger to temporarily plug the hole ( 2-3 seconds ) , that way the expanding foam will go deeper into the nest instead of dripping out onto the ground . WATCH OUT FOR SPRAY BACK !!! ( Wear googles and keep your mouth shut ) Spray Carpenter bee holes late in evening / night or early morning so you will catch them in the nest . Leave the holes open so any returning bees can track the poison deeper into the nest . Mark the treated holes with a pencil and retreat holes in a couple of days , ( look for new / missed holes ) . I retreated ours 3 times over a 2 week period ( maybe overkill, but decks can be expensive to replace ) . I plugged up the holes with steel wool then glued in wood dowel pins and kept a look out for new holes. So far so good . PS Don't forget to place a few bee traps around to hopefully catch any new bees . PPS Be aware that carpenter bees hollow out wood from the inside , so a small hole could lead to a large interior chamber that has weakened the woods support strength .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work I just sprayed this into the holes on a cloudy humid morning. I guess since the sun wan’t out they decided to sleep in. That was their last mistake. They are falling out of the holes they made. They are all over the porch walking around hating life. The “foaming action” really does what it says. I’m sure it completely fills the holes and makes contact with all of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing results Had a fairly large bees nest in an electrical box in the backyard, tried soap water but didnt work well. Bought this spray and thorougly put it into the nest, 24 hrs later almost every bee is dead! I was then able to open the box anx clean up the wax/worms.

Unfortunately, this product did little to slow down or eliminate the infestation of Carpenter Bees nesting throughout my backyard fencing. And, to be fair, and despite my many applications of Spectracide, the nesting may have gotten too far along for the product to be fully effective.
