Wasps – Spray nest until thoroughly wet. Wasps on the nest will fall quickly to the ground, wasps returning to the nest will be killed by the residual action of the spray. Wait 24 hours before removing nest.

Hornets – Hornets build nests under eaves, in trees, shrubs, and ivy, and in sheltered spaces of buildings. It is best to wait until dusk or early morning to treat as hornets are less active at that time. Locate entrance hole in the nest, and thoroughly spray the entrance hole. Spraying the outside of the nest and not the entrance hole will not have the desired effect and may cause the hornets to attack. For best results for large nests, repeat application.

Yellow Jackets – Yellow jackets typically build nests in the ground or in tree stumps, landscape timbers, and railroad ties. Locate entrance holes, note that there may be more than one. Wait until dusk or early morning to spray. Spray entrances thoroughly. For best results for large nests, repeat application.


Tent Caterpillars – Treat webs in late afternoon when caterpillars return and spray tent until soaked.

Ants – Spray ants, building foundations, and locations where ants are entering a building. Directly hit as many ants as possible with the spray.

Cockroaches – Treat for cockroaches at locations where they live and potential entry points, such as areas where outside plumbing enters the building and cracks or crevices in the foundation. Spray cockroaches directly when seen.
