Wasp & Hornet Killer Kit

  • Treat the hornet nest as late in the evening as possible.  Remember that all wasps, hornets and bees are at rest when it is dark.  When it is dark, not only will all the hornets be in the nest for you to exterminate (instead of foraging for food some distance away) , you will also be at far less risk of being stung by angry wasps and hornets.  No one wants to treat a hornets' nest with hornets dive-bombing their head!  When approaching the nest, move slowly so as not to disturb the sleeping pests.  If eliminating the nest in late evening is not possible (forcing you to work in broad daylight), avoid crossing the obvious flight path.  You also do not want to cast a shadow across the nest while you work.
  • For initial "knockdown" or quick kill, use a professional Wasp Freeze.  This will enable you to attack the nest from a distance or reach higher areas without the use of a ladder.  The wasp freeze should first be directed at the entrance of the nest to eliminate any guard wasps.  Next, thoroughly soak the remainder of the nest.  For the average size nest (or larger) you will need two cans of Wasp Freeze.  These types of aerosol are not very expensive and you do not want to run out of product in the middle of the job!
  • You can now finish the hornet elimination.  This is best done using Drione Dust or Delta Dust.  Either one of these products will do an excellent job.  
    If you are in a humid environment, Delta Dust is best.  Use a Crusader Duster to apply the material so that you are sure that all galleries have been penetrated.  Ease the tip of your Crusader Duster   into the entrance and quickly squeeze three or four times.  This will send the pesticide dust far into the galleries, where it will remain long enough  to kill all hornets.  Drione Dust and Delta Dust are also excellent for eliminating Carpenter Bees and Carpenter Ants.
  • After 24 to 48 hours, all hornets should be dead.  (If not, you simply repeat the dust application)  You can now safely remove the empty nest.

In some areas (around pool decks, playground equipment, under the eaves of homes and buildings) wasps and hornets can be an annual, on-going reoccurrence.  To help prevent reinfestation in these areas, spray with wettable powders such as Cynoff WP or Demon WP on a regular basis.  This preventative pest control measure will also take care of spiders, scorpions, ants, roaches, silverfish and other invading pests that like to share your home.
