Can Sevin Dust 5% be used to kill bees and prevent them from entering the area where their hive is?
entering an outdoor outlet on our deck.
Sevin is not labeled for bees. We would recommend using Delta dust or Tempo dust for eliminating bees that have been entering the outlet. Dusts do not offer an immediate knockdown but instead kill over a couple of days. Dusts will keep killing for several months after they have been applied to covered areas.
