What do you recommend for Carpenter ants, carpenter bees, yellow jackets, other pests?

What do you recommend for Carpenter ants, carpenter bees , yellow jackets. other pests, but mostly what I mentioned. It is a tossup for me between Temp 1% , Delta Dust or Drione. I will get a hand duster bulb. Need to use inside and outside. We do have small children here at times and a pet, but I don't want that to be the 100% deciding factor. I can keep them away clean up areas etc. Thank You!!


For any nests of the carpenter bees or yellow jackets we would suggest dusting the holes directly with either Tempo or Delta Dust. Both will do a great job of controlling the nest and give you the results you are looking for. For all other areas around the home for general pests including ants as well as treatment indoors around baseboards, we would recommend something like Cyonara 9.7. Cyonara is great product that will dry clear, is virtually odorless, and can be sprayed on bushes and areas the carpenter bees and wasps land as well as around the foundation and window and door frames. As long as you keep pets and children out of the area while you spray and until the surfaces have dried it will be safe for them to be in the area.
