yellow jack spray
By Galen in Center Point AL 35215 on 10/16/2014
It doesn't kill the nests. I sprayed into the nest after the bee's were all settled if for the night about 9pm and they all came out the next morning. So much for killing them instantly.

Complete waste of your money
By Ed in Houston, TX. on 07/25/2017
This product is a complete waste of your money. You can hose a wasp down 4 + times and it will still get up and fly away. They may die eventually but after you have bought 6-8 cans of spray to kill a handful of wasps..... Find something better, this isn't it.
It has worked on three different wasp nests.
By Laura in CHarleston, Sc on 08/01/2016
I have used this product on three different occasions. It was used on wasps, the kind that make their nest hanging. I sprayed in the beginning stages of the nest and it worked. Killed the wasps instantly and they didn't come back. Today I am going to try and use in on a ground nest, and I am not sure if its bees, wasps, or yellow jackets. Its a established nest, under a thorny rose bush (AHGGG) which is why I have left it undisturbed till now. One of the buggers stung me while I was pruning so they have to die now.

QWill Spectracide Wasp and Hornet Killer Spray kill cicada killer wasps if the wasp is sprayed directly?
ASpectacide Wasp and Hornet Killer is labeled to kill wasps in general. You will spray the nest until it is soaked. The product label recommends spraying the nest and not the pest directly. It will also kill insects that return to the nest over the next few days. You will need to wait at least 24 hours before removing the nest.
