Would Wasp X work if i cannot find the nest?
I cannot leave my front door , as soon as I go out they come at me, they are flying around some areas of wood on top of porch in front and then they go to a small bush and the only tree which is a japanese maple We cannot locate a nest but they sure fly around. I am very allergic What is the best product for me to use. I also watched from my car this huge black hairy looking fat flying thing only one kept hitting and flying it had a yellow on top only. This thing was huge. I got rid of all other trees, and bushes no flowering plants and still have these pests outside I am petrified to go out during the day every year same thing and we never find the nests. Help..
Wasp X is a great product but it is not what you would use to rid yourself of the population if you do not know where the nest is. You could use it as a knock down contact kill product on those that are flying directly around the door. For the population you are seeing you want to try and see if they have an area they consistently go to or crawl around any crevices of your home to try and locate the nest. If they go to a specific bush look around it and on the ground below it for any small holes where they could have a ground nest. If you can find any crevices they may be coming in and out of, you can use a dust like Tempo 1% dust in the entry point for them to carry through the nest. You can then spray a product like Cyonara 9.7 along the beams and entry points of the home and the bushes around the home where the frequent to try and kill them as they come into those areas. Nothing is going to stop more from coming from your neighbors yards though, so a general treatment with the Cyonara to keep the numbers of them down will be needed on a monthly or quarterly basis.
