Is Evergreen Pyrethrum Concentrate the stuff used by Billy the Exterminator to get rid of yellow jackets?
We honestly do not know what brands of insecticide Billy the Exterminator uses. We do know that he uses pyrethrin based insecticides because they are more environmentally friendly. Evergreen Pyrethrum Concentrate is a pyrethrin based insecticide but it is not labeled for use on wasps. We recommend using something like Wasp Freeze. Wasp-freeze is specially formulated to provide instant knockdown of yellow jackets, wasps and hornets. Knockdown is quick so no stinging pheromone is released, thus reducing the possibility of stings. The Wasp Freeze can has a jet nozzle that will spray up to 15 ft away.
