            Nearly Instant Kill
            Used this in 2022 in my neighbor's yard and this week in my back yard. After 10 P.M. I sprayed the openings. In my neighbor's nest, some jackets tried to come out. I continued spraying and they were stopped dead. After that there was no activity, indicating all were dead. In my yard, I had concerns because the nest opening was in the open and was wide. During spraying, no insects made it to the opening and there was no further activity around the nest. Spectracide worked very well.

              works as it should better than brake cleaner
              Works really good, comes out like a foamy stream to coat the target and kill it even in mid flight.

              Don't buy this brand waste of money
              One can doesn't even have nozzle to dispense spray, its a waste of diesel to drive all the way up to Home depot to buy this wasp & Hornet killer if you can spray it out of the can . I don't recommend buying products like this from any company that has such poor quality control as to package spray cans without it have a spray nozzle.

              Beware of damage to asphalt
              I used this product to kill some wasps over my garage. Some of the spray dripped down onto my driveway, and disintegrated the tar in the asphalt.

                Spectracide - Is it effective?
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We were able to try the Spectracide Wasp and Hornet Killer. We have had a number of these guys swarming around the fireplace chimney. They have been trying to find a way to make a home and are driving us crazy. We were able to spray some towards where the wasps/hornets were buzzing about and have been watching and waiting to see if we need to respray the area. It has been just over a week and we haven't had any problems since, so I feel this product has helped us with our issue, this year. The smell of the product it noticeable, but obviously being outside not overwhelming. But, you will smell an odor after spraying, so best to spray and stay away for a bit. Decent to use, easy to spray and seems to have taken care of the issue.

                  Hornets and Wasps It’s Over!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Ranch life brings happiness and bugs! There and many places for wasps and hornets to make their nests. We often find these stinging insects around our home and quickly need to address the issue. I cannot take a chance on a hornet or wasp to sting any of our kids. SPECTRACIDE Wasp & Hornet Killer was our solution. When we sprayed hornets it killed on contact. The 27ft jet spray made it easy to direct the stream to the best and stand safely out of the way. It doesn’t stain where it makes contact. This spray will also kill ants, yellow jackets and scorpions. Directions are easy. It’s not overly scented which I like. Great value for a double pack!

                    Killing Wasps
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The wasp and hornet killer is quite effective. The nosel allows for easy and good control of the spray. It doesn’t go everywhere and it hits its intended target. I personally found that the scent was not very overpowering, which was good. All in all, this spray will get the job done.

                      Pretty great!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wasps seem to love making nest around my house. This spray is very handy! Its sprays pretty far. I was able so spray upwards to a nest outside the house. As soon as I sprayed it I ran inside the house and right away heard the wasps dropping dead on the floor. It sprays a pretty generous stream at your target and works pretty fast. I was quite surprised how effective it is. I will continue to purchase this product when mines run out. It is very convenient that I'm able to purchase a 2-pack. Great value.

                        A wasp's worst nightmare!
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live in the South where it usually warm and humid. Wasps love to congregate and set up house most of the year. This spray kept me nice and safe today as I tackled the unpleasant task of removing the 4 wasps' nests around my home so I could work on the gutters. Each can has a spraying distance of 27 feet (!!) so you can be at a safe distance when you spray the nests. I was able to fully saturate the nests (and in 2 instances the spray was strong enough to knock the nests down) without being in danger of being stung. It didn't appear that any wasps survived the onslaught of spray, so I was able to just toss the nests in the trash and get my work done. I love that Spectracide sells this spray in a 2 pack and I appreciate how large the cans are. Great product, great value.
