    A:  I would not think regular soil versus potting soil should change the effectiveness of the spray. I most certainly would use it. This seems to be more of a soapy spray, other wasp sprays are oil based. Soap is very effective at killing wasps and other insects, it suffocates/drowns them, and doesnt hurt or affect my plants. No bad odor either. May take over a minute for the wasps to keel over, but it does work, and is my favorite spray to use, i have even killed black widow spiders using it. I love the control the long tube gives. little waste, and it works!

          Q:This keeps saying it's for ground nesting bees, but then it says it MUST be spayed directly on to the nest so my question is, will this work on ground nesting yellow jackets where all you see is the hole they are going in to in the ground?

          A:  Yes, it worked for me. By inserting the "straw" into the hole in the nest, then spraying the insecticide, the foam expands to fill the nest from the inside. Be sure to do this after sunset, when the yellow jackets are back in the nest and have stopped flying around the opening.

            A:  Common sense says you don’t go anywhere near a yellow jacket nest. If you are brave and fairly determined I guess you could approach it after dark and spray it right into the hole. I bought several cans of  This particular product and tried to use it on one nest. It did not kill them. They just kept returning and digging deeper. Had to wait till the first frost and pour boiling salt water into the hole and then fill it up with sand with dirt on top and packed it down. Seriously might be cheaper and safer to call a good exterminator. It doesn’t do anything to carpenter bees. I use three cans to get the bees in the eaves of my shed… They just kept coming back even when I sprayed them directly…. They just flew away. You are talking about 2 difficult species to exterminate. Both are considered pollinators but can be dangerous to human health. Rarely do carpenter bees sting but they have the ability to and they have big stingers. Numerous Yellow jacket  Stings can trigger a death response in humans. Since I was asked, Leave it to the professionals on these two critters!!!

                Killed them All
                I had a 4" diameter yellow jacket nest built in the mulch under a small bush. Once I discovered where the nest was located I sprayed it with this product and it killed the yellow jackets. My biggest problem was that I disturbed the nest when I located it and I did not wait long enough to spray it, so I had to spray it twice. If you have a nest spray at night when the nest is fully occupied.

                I used a bug zapper light/lamp and placed it at the entrance of the ground yellow jacket nest around 8pm (this takes care of the nest guards) then took the lamp out to apply the Specticide around 10:30pm at night using the red straw right at the entrance of nest and let her rip. In the early morning, i applied the rest of the spray can just to be sure and there were no more yellow jackets in the after noon, they are all gone so i closed the hole and called it a successful job. Poor bees, but we have children constantly around that area (front corner of the house) and we cant risk the children get stung by them yellow jackets.

                Not sure if it is working....
                Carpenter bees are going through a gap between the vinyl siding... I sprayed this product between the gap but I still see bees hovering. I dont know what to do. Is it working? If the manufacturer sees this message please help. What do I do to fill that gap after spraying? Steel wool? Caulking? Foam?

                  Effective and the Price is right.
                  After doing a long research on the web, I decided on the Spectracide. It worked. With the provided tube, I could reach in the tunnels through the drilled holes by the carpenter bees. 5 minutes after spraying, both the male and female crawled out and dropped dead on the ground as indicated by the picture.

                    Worked excellent. Sprayed in about 10 holes the bees had made. Heard some buzzing start and a few minutes later bees were falling out of the holes and died shortly after.

                      Killed Yellow Jackets within the hour
                      Working on my front yard I noticed multiple yellow jackets around a particular shrub, after some investigation I found there was a small nest. I bought this product and sprayed from about 5 feet away and within the hour the hive died.

                      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.

                        Works good
                        I had a large yellow jacket nest in crawlspace under house. this was my first line of attack. It was good at knocking down the numbers considerably but needed to hit the nest multiple times. nest was about 12' wide by 18' deep and 3' thick . Safety tip, wear good goggles. I know someone who almost blinded themself when something similiar hit a surface and rebounded right back in their eye.
