There are an assortment of store-bought pesticides with several streaming elements.

  • Ÿ  Like acephate, carbaryl, chlorpyrifos, diazinon, esfenvalerate, and permethrin

Carabyl is the most largely purchased insecticide, also acephate, and chlorpyrifos, which quickly debilitates a wasp’s nervous system.


Application procedures. At night is best to apply insecticide in a constant flow into a nest, yet the impact of an insecticide spray are minimal, and won’t detain laborer wasps to fly out of the nest. Select carabaryl dust or other various dusts insecticides specialized for wasps.

For yellow-jackets, also apply insecticide at night and use a flashlight with a red bulb to discover the entrance (wasps can’t discern red). Strewn the dust around the entryway and thoroughly into it. So laborer wasps travel through it and contaminate themselves (when transiting) eventually spreading it inside the nest. Wait a few days after application.

Using a hand or power duster has an extensive spigot to infuse the entryway and nearer to the nest. Don’t use a power duster with another controlled insecticide for a different treatment.



Most gregarious wasps perish in Winter except for a pregnant queen wasp, that will regulate her colony the upcoming Spring. Avoid a nest site in summer-time and obstruct the nest’s entryway in Autumn so a new queen wasp doesn’t colonize it next season. Wasps become listless in Autumn which is why bee or wasp extermination is best at night-time. A wasp nest is small-scale in March and April because the queen is barely colonizing which makes wasp control easier. Always use dense protective attire to prevent a bee or wasp sting. Use at least 2 layers of a long-sleeved shirt and pants, also thick socks meshed veil, goggles, and gloves.
