How do I use Tempo Dust to get rid of a bee or wasp nest?

Is the Tempo 1% Dust effective if the nest cannot be found and it is assumed the bees are either in the wall or ceiling? If dusted in the openings, will the bees take the dust into the nest to kill all off?


Yes, the Tempo 1% Dust is our best selling product to eradicate bees.  If you know where the opening is where the bees are going in and out, and you dust that opening, the bees will get the dust on the hair on their legs and carry it back to the nesting area.  Usually this will eradicate a bee colony within 24 - 48 hours depending on the size.  It is best to treat the opening late at night or very early morning when they are all inside and less active.
