Amy writes,

Is this the best insecticide dust to use on our bee wasp hornet or yellow jacket problem?

We have a bee/wasp/hornet/yellow jacket problem. In other words, we are not sure about the critters, We believe they are wasps. Some of the hives appear to be in the ground, and others in the usual areas. Will this product work on all of the above, in case we are wrong about our assumption? Also, will it work for the hives that are underground?


Yes, this is our most popular dust for bees in general.  Wether they are in the ground or in your home going under a roof shingle, or a paper nest out in the open, one to two quick puffs from this dust will knock them out.  You should get a hand duster to apply the product.  Also, it is best to apply the dust late at night or very early morning when the bees are less active.  Night usually works best.
