It is just a liquid that shoots around ten feet... it does do the job quick though. I would recommend only using it outdoors as it tends to be messy.

Can you target the entrance and soak it well? If you squirt this at the entrance of a nest, any hornets that come out while you are spraying will die, allowing you to continue soaking the nest.

Inaffective on wasps for me
I purchased this because the PRO one was out of stock. Wasps had begun to nest on one of my deck posts and I thought this would be the solution. Boy was i wrong! After 3 days, the jokers were back like nothing was wrong. I used it over and over for like a month. I got up the last morning and inspected the site, and lo and behold two of them were resting in the very same area! I got my can, shook it up and blasted them. This time I watched them struggle for almost 15 minutes before dying! Resilient little suckers who laugh this stuff off. Don’t buy if you’re serious about these annoying pests.

I live on two acres in a rural area. Wasp were everywhere when I moved in. The shed, the barn, the house overhang, even the above ground pool had nest. This wasp and hornet spray doesn't kill instantly but it does the trick. I've gone through over 10 cans and finally seem to have significantly reduced the amount of wasp and nest on my property. I tried a couple of other more expensive sprays but the results just don't justify the price difference.

I did zero research before going to the store, and they were out of the other brand. Followed the instructions to the letter, and emptied the entire can onto the large nest that we discovered in our Japanese maple. As of the following afternoon there was no change in activity in and around the nest. Ended up buying a can of Raid Wasp and Hornet Killer, applying it exactly the same, and went out this morning to a dead nest.

Very disappointed! It did spray nice for half the can, reaching to the roof eave so I gave an extra star. I soaked a medium sized hornets nest with both cans! It foamed up nice and only a few flew out so I thought all was well. The next morning there are fleets flying in and out of the nest! Looks like its time for a refund! Waste of time and money!

I am guessing there have been bad batches due to the mixed reviews. I have used this for a couple of years with excellent results. It sprays far with no dripping or misting on the user. As you can see from the pic, most fall dead in-place. Those that get indirect hits head toward the ground at a 45 deg. angle. About to buy some more; I'll do a follow-up report on that purchase as well.

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

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.

Killed Them All
I came back from vacation to find three different wasp nest at the top level of our two story home. There were about five different choices at my local HD. I picked this brand because it had the farthest listed spray distance and because it was a good value for a twin pack. While standing on the ground, I sprayed the nest on the overhang of the second floor. The yellow jackets died instantly. The third nest consisted of larger red wasp. They died within a few minutes. I still have a little in each can but the remainder is not enough to spray a nest. I'll just use it for random bugs outside. Anyway this did the job and at a great price.

Kills On Contact
Worked great for me. Can says it sprays 27 feet. I don't know about that but I personally got a good, strong, and effective 15 ft blast, and it does kill on contact so its not a big deal.

Partial cans
I've used the product for a while now and never had an issue until recently. I bought 3 twin packs and 2 out of the first 4 cans won't empty, there's roughly 1/3 of the liquid left in each and no more pressure in the cans.
