Wasps and Bees Treatment

Wasps and Bees Treatment

We treat wasp and bees nests by injecting an insecticide dust into the entrance of the nest. As the wasps and bees move in and out of the nest, move around the nest and clean them, they spread the dust throughout the nest and kill off all the inhabitants. The area around the nest should be avoided for an hour or two after treatment as the wasps and bees will be agitated and angry and likely to sting. In order to be treated, the entrance to the nest needs to be obvious so that we can find it, it needs to be unblocked so that the wasps can pick up the dust, and the weather needs to be warm and dry so that the wasps are active and moving around so that they will spread the dust around. Usually one treatment is all that is needed, but if wasps and bees are still active 48 to 72 hours later, then a second treatment is required.
