Wasp Control

Everyone has encountered at least one wasp or two and most of the time the encounter is not enjoyable. Wasps are associated as pests due to their stinging nature. The wasp can sting multiple times over compare to bees. Not to mention, they can also attack in a group. Wasp stings are very painful and are highly inflammatory. There are generally two types of wasps: solitary and social wasps. Solitary wasps have no territory and lay their eggs in their prey. They are usually passive aggressive compared to social wasps that are very aggressive. However, they are known to be somewhat aggressive at times if threatened. Social wasps resort to their nests hence the higher alert and defensive aggression.

Wasp Sting

Most wasps are considered beneficial insects due to their diet. They usually prey on garden pests, which help our gardens thrive. Wasps should not be categorized as pests but most people do for mainly two reasons: wasps’ stinging nature and their nest placement.

How to Get Rid of Wasps

The only true way to get rid of wasps for good is to track down the source, the wasp nest. Spraying 2 or 3 wasps here and there will not solve your problem. Yes, you will temporarily get rid of your wasp at the moment but more will appear. There are two main insecticides exterminators rely on, the wasp spray and the dust insecticide.

Wasp Control Products

  • Aerosol Wasp Spray
    Rely on a wasp killer projectile spray which will ensure a 15-20 feet gap when applying. This will allow plenty of time and room to make a quick getaway if needed.
  • Wasp Dust Pesticides
    Dust insecticide is a fast acting solution that can be injected in wasp nests for immediate treatment.

Wasp Nest Removal

Wasp nest removal is pretty simple. First, track down the main area where there seems to be a lot of wasp traffic. Usually, you will be able to find the nest nearby. When you discover the nest, come back to the discovered location late in the evening. Before applying any wasp killer pesticides, be sure to dress yourself appropriately. It is recommended to wear thick clothing (even multiple layers) and a pair of gloves. Spray directly into the nest entrance (opening). Wasp sprays are very effective and most sprays will kill on contact. When applying dust insecticides, using a duster is recommended. Directly insert the duster into the entrance hole of the nest and apply. The number of pumps should be according to size of the nest. For a mid size nest, it is ideal to pump 2-3 times. If the nest is still active the next day, continue the treatment until it is evident that the nest is eradicated.

Q. Killing wasps inside the housing of a hot tub
I have a wasp nest inside a wood covered base of a hot tub that is very hard to get to. I do have a small entry area (3") that I could put a smoke bomb, if they work. Do you sell such and would that kill or detor wasps in there?
A.   We recommend puffing Delta Dust into the entry area. If it is hard to reach the nest, we recommend using a duster that would be able to puff the dust onto the nest, as well as the surrounding areas. Delta dust has a 5-6 month residual.

Q. how to get rid of ground wasp cacade killers
A.   Delta Dust is the product that we recommend for wasp control. Since cicada killers can be particularly aggressive, we recommend that you wear all necessary protective gear like a bee suit. Also, apply the insecticide during the evening when the activity is at its lowest. We also recommend that until you are able to get rid of the infestation, continue to apply Delta Dust once a week. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 1-800-788-4142.

Q. How do I kill wasps in my french drain?
I have a french drain that runs from my back yard to under the fence in an underground PVC pipe all the way through the front, and finally into the street (broken through the curb, which I had put in for drainage. There is at least one wasp nest, as they continue to fly out of the metal grades that the rain water runs into. I have not been stung yet, but am very allergic to them, and they seem quite aggressive when I try to work in the garden near the metal grades. Is there a wasp killer bait or something like it that I can slip into the openings of the french drain grades?
A.   If you cannot reach the hive, we recommend you use items such as Delta dust around the surrounding area. Basically, the pesticide will remain on the surface until the wasps come into contact with the product. Once it does, it will take it back to its nest. They should be under control in about 2-3 weeks.

Q. Do you have a product that will not damage my galvanized steel?
We have a barndominium- don't want to spray anything that will mess with the galvanized steel, but need to get rid of nests on porches.
A.   One of our best products is Wasp-Freeze, which offers an instant knock down for wasps. Because it is an oil-based chemical, it may leave a bit of residue. However, you should be able to wash it with water to remove the residue.

Q. Red Wasps, yellow jackets, and sweat bees - oh my!
We are a new tree trimming - cutting business. We have come across many dead trees here in the south. We have a tree that is feeding or supplying wood to these "PESTS". There are thousands of them. What can we spray on the tree to get them away long enough for us to get it down and away from our client's house?
A.   We recommend using a jetspray wasp killer to control the bees and wasps around the immediate area that you are working on. This product is an instant knockdown, pressurized aerosol spray that will kill the bees and wasps on contact. It is a pressurize jet spray which allows you to treat for the bees and wasps from a safe distance. We have the PT Wasp Freeze or the StingRay Wasp Spray.
