Questions & Answers


Will spraying entry of nest kill entire nest? That is will the hornets transmit the spray to the rest of the colony?

Asked by Texmatt1 October 7, 2013

The nest was inside my wall. Opening was where the main feed for the house electric went through the exterior wall. The nest was somewhere between there and the circuit breaker box. Sprayed the opening outside where I could see some of them. Sprayed above the circuit breaker box inside. Heard a lot of buzzing noise in the wall and got worried. A few hours later the entire colony was dead in a large pile below the breaker box. I think the spray atomized enough to fill the area and killed them all. No move outside, no buzzing noise inside. Saved a visit from an exterminator.

Asked by Snowman July 16, 2018

It is best to spray into the hole as much as you can. This product is most effective so don't worry if you don't get it right down in the hole. When they exit the hole they will be exposed to the chemical and die. Just don't worry about the amount you use. With a nest that size saturate the hole, outside area, everything needs to be covered. You will see that after about two seconds you will be able to hit your target from 10-13 feet away easily.

How long do I wait before I can let the dogs outside?

Asked by Betsy August 5, 2017

Depends on who let the dogs out.

The morning after I sprayed the wasp nest I found a dead mole in the yard. Could the mole have died from this spray?

i want to kill the hornets but want to save the nest

Asked by spanky October 16, 2017

Well you do have to get the nest pretty wet, so I would think it wouldn't be a good idea to keep the nest due to the poison. It didn't seem to damage the nest when I sprayed it though.

It says it's only for outdoors. But what about using it inside a shed with no electricity and the...

This product is wonderful. It really works and you don't have to use but a little. This is the only product that actually does what it's made for. I highly recommend it.

Wasp Deimator
I bought this product based on the positive reviews and let me attest it did not disappoint! I live in a two story colonial house and noticed a basketball size nest outside my bedroom window under the eave. Mind you this was 8 to 10 ft past the window out of reach. I sprayed the whole can onto the nest at dusk, waited 24hrs, and with my dads help used a 12 ft stick to knock the nest down. They were all dead! Well worth the $4.27 per can. This product really did what it claims on the can and I did not have to spray twice.

*Disclaimer* Hornets are not to be messed with. They are legit wicked. For my situation this spray worked better than expected. Had a hornets nest bigger than a basketball in a tree. Waited until dark and emptied half the can in their entry spot positioning the nozzle to point up into the nest and filled it. Not a single buzz heard, not one escapee. Problem solved.

Product did the job. Yellow jacket nest in ground with entrance visible (pic attached) at base of iris. July 11, 2018 emptied about half the can from about 10 ft. away during the day--although instructions suggest dawn or dusk when the insects are inactive. Soaked the entrance. An hour later I reviewed the spot--didn't see any insects . . . saw one fly into the entrance--it faltered/staggered and flew away. Today, July 13 I reviewed again--no activity. Some reviewers didn't like the product--said it didn't work: my experience just the opposite. At less than $4.00 this product is worth a try . . . if it doesn't do the job for you there are other slightly higher-priced products.

I used this product multiple times comparing other cheaper wasps killer. I still come back to this spray because it works and I can see it working. The spray foams that I’ve been using may work, it makes a foamy spray but depending on the brand the foam may dissipate quickly and I’ve tried 6 different brands and models. The problem with the foamy spray is that you need a direct shot into the nest hole, if there is an obstacle like a root or weed block the foam doesn’t penetrate deep enough to get to the nest. I just completely killed a nest in my garden and here are the issues I had with the foamy spray. The nest was under bark, under a layer of weed block, and had a root that was also protecting this nest acting like a dam. Pretty smart huh. Anyway the foam would just hit the bark and foam up but not being able to see the hole, I did not know where I was shooting the foam. The cheaper sprays only foamed up for about 5 seconds before it turned into water, so the problem of not seeing the hole, having the layer of bark, weed block, and root the foam didn’t get near the nest. So a couple nights I would disturb the nest and move some bark to see if they would clear a path to their hole. They didn’t so I never knew where they were coming from. They were crawling out of the ground like zombies from all random places. So now coming back to this killer, I would do this during the day when I see them flying around, spray them and watch them die. They die so quickly I was wearing gym pants and a t-shirt. When one comes out I shoot it. I killed around 10 that day. Days went by and no wasps? So after getting more supplies I decided to dig it up, at night of course, and I had a hoodie, jeans, and safety glasses (safety first :D). First used a pick to probe and then I could hear the buzzing, some came out and got sprayed. Then I used a weeder and dug deeper and deeper finding all these obstacles that was preventing me from killing them earlier. Then I finally broke through and found the motherload. I could see all the wasps moving around and buzzing pretty good. So I sprayed them with another cheap foaming spray, emptied the can, but I could see how little foam it was actually making because it was dissipating pretty quick. The wasps were still crawling around maybe slowly dieing so I grabbed the Spectracide Pro killer and sprayed anyone moving. They quickly died and sprayed some more for good measure. Having the root in the way made it difficult to find, but now I can safety say they are eradicated. I have so much confidence in the Spectracide Pro wasp killer that I could use it during the day while they are mid flight and I could see them dieing while flying. I like to track them down and see their dead body. It's like a sport

it did the job and wiped out the nest. before photo shown. i sprayed from 6-8 ft away and product gave a good stream. clear instructions. quick to kill. it would be nice if there was a smaller "one and done" size. i don't like building up a collection of toxic chemicals in the shed.

Quality :
Value :
Pro's: The reach of the jet of liquid was just as long and the wasps died just as fast with this one as with other brands. Cons: If one is in a hurry, and needs to buy this brand while in the Home Depot store and does not mind the insecticide dripping on one's hands when pushing the squirt button and does not mind the push-lid-spout falling off from the can, then this is OK for the price. However, I will never buy it again. It would seem that the push-lid-spout was not seriously tested prior to sending to market.

This is the best ready to use product on the market. I am a General Contractor and this is the best over the counter Wasp, Hornet and Yellow Jacket killer EVER! Always apply at dusk or in the evenings when the activity is low. You'll kill the entire nest if you empty the can on the nest while their sleeping!
