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 many treatments are needed through out a normal season for wasp control for a 6 acre home owners association
A. It would really depend on the degree of the infestation. Usually though, it may only take 1-2 treatments.
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. is there a wasp container i can get to draw the wasps away from our seating area
is there a wasp container that will draw the wasps away from our seating area
A. We do not carry a wasp bait or wasp container. We do have bait traps for yellow jackets, but it may not be effective for other species of bees or wasps. We recommend using an instant knockdown jet spray that will kill the wasps on contact. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
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.

We have an outdoor seating area associated with our restaurant. Seasonally we encounter wasps that make serving in this seating area uncomfortable. The restaurant is in a rural environment (mountainous outdoor area. What can be done to reduce/control this problem?
