Ron writes,

Can I just spray a ground bee nest with wasp and hornet spray or do I need to buy some kind of dust too?

I am interested in buying one of your bee suits and don't know if I really need any other products. This is for home use only. I am not in the pest business.


Most wasp and hornet sprays only contain pyrethrins which is an active ingredient that will only kill insects that come into contact with it while it is wet. Most folks do not want to have to spray down every bee or wasp in a nest with the wasp and hornet spray so they apply a dust such as Tempo Dust or Delta Dust which will knockdown even those insects that usually do not come out of the nest.
