What pesticide do I use to get rid of a hornet or yellow jacket nest?

The nest is behind the external wall of a house. I would like to drill a hole and apply a pesticide before I remove the wall to remove the nest. What pesticide should I use?


Our most popular dust  for bees/wasp is Tempo Dust.  You will need a hand duster to apply it with.  It usually works within 24 to 48 hours. You want to go up to the opening where they are flying in and out of at dusk or at night when they are not active and puff twice directly into the hole.  Then pull the duster out and puff directly at the hole to cover the opening from about 5 inches away.  This is the most efficient and fastest way to eliminate a bee/yellow jacket/w
