Will Tempo 1% Dust work on the exterior paper wasp and yellow jacket nests?

Will this product work on nests/colonies that are not in an interior location? We have many nests on our house in our attic vents, window shutters, under the eaves, and under our bow windows. We have been spraying to kill them for years, but they keep making new nests in all the same places over and over again. I want to finally get rid of them for good!! Thanks.


Absolutely!  You can apply Tempo Dust anywhere you see wasps, yellow jackets, and any other pest for that matter are entering either your home or another structure.  You can even use Tempo Dust for yellow jackets nesting in the ground or in a nest hanging from a tree.  Tempo Dust is by far our best selling dust for flying insects.  It will typically wipe out a nuisance next within 24 hours.  It is best to apply the dust in the late evening when they are not actively flying around anymore.  1 to 2 puffs from a hand duster is all that you need.
