It may surprise you to learn that we are moving into the most aggressive portion of wasp and hornet season. We normally envision these flying pests swarming around picnic tables and landing on lemonade drinks in prime summer months. In the spring, the queen wasp is just starting to build her colony. By late fall, the colony will reach its maximum size, with nests that can house as many as 5000 insects.
TERRO® Wasp & Hornet Killer can easily kill these dreaded pests before they have a chance to sting. Wasp & Hornet Killer is an entrapping foam spray that coats nests for a total kill. The entrapping hornet foam spray not only kills wasps and hornets inside the nest, it remains on the nest and kills unsuspecting insects that have the misfortune to return. And it goes the distance! Nests are often located in hard to reach places so you’ll appreciate the powerful jet spray that shoots up to 20 feet away. This also allows you to stand a safe distance away from the nest, reducing any fear of being stung.
How to Spray a Wasp Nest
The best time to plan your attack is at sunrise or dusk, when these insects are least active. And remember to wait 24 hours to remove the nest, to ensure that the majority of the insects are dead or have flown away from the nest.
You can additionally keep wasps from entering your home by using the foaming spray around typical entry points, including gaps around outdoor plumbing and vents, crack and crevices in the foundation, and along window sills and ledges.
