Recommended Control and Elimination Measures for Yellow Jacket Control

Sanitation :
In order to eliminate possible food sources, is important to reduce build up of foraging population during the summer to mid autumn . Trash containers should be kept closed and open containers should be emptied regularly.

Treating Nests:
Nests should be located during the day, so you can see the workers entering and exiting all day. Mark the entry points. Treat at night only when it is dark. Any treatments should be done at night, because they are all in the nest. They don't see well at night and your chances of being stung are greatly reduced.

  • Treat the nest with a pyrethrum aerosols such as CB 80 or PT 565. Pyrethrum forms a gas which will fill the cavity, killing the yellow jackets.
  • Check the nest the following day, to see if the yellow jackets are indeed dead by lack of activity.
    It may be necessary to repeat treatment.
  • Wait unil the aerosol is dry then dust in the opening with Tempo Dust or D-Fense Dust. These dusts will leave a residue to continue to kill for months and eliminate any hatch outs.

    With a little care and caution, yellow jackets can be easily and safely eliminated.


  1. Spray opening at night with pyrethrin aerosol about a 15 second blast
  2. Wait until aerosol is dry (10-15 minutes), then dust opening with Tempo Dust or D Fense Dust

Pro Tips The best time to kill out a nest of yellow jackets is at night. Put that tip on the CB-80 and spray into the hole for about 15 seconds. Then use the Tempo dust. The dust will assure you that a one time shot will do the job. If the nest is not a threat to you or your family leave it alone. They are beneficial. If you have any questions don't hesitate to call me, I have done hundreds of these.

Worked great
I followed directions given and did application just after dark. Cured a chronic problem in old stone house

Better than Good
This product really takes the sting out of pesky wasp and yellow jackets; the results were beyond my expectations and this product is also quite cost effective;
Review by revrvbtaxx / (Posted on 12/3/2015)
100% satisfied with this product!
Had a yellow jacket nest in the walls. I read how Yellow Jackets only use a nest one season and was trying to leave it but after they started to slowly find their way into the house in different rooms. I decided to tackle the problem. I first tried the foaming wasp and yellow jacket killer by spraying it into the hole at night where they were coming in and out. It slowed them down for a couple of days but they were back in full force shortly after that. Ordered the kit and followed instructions. The next day there was absolutely no movement in or out of the nest. I'm sure I saved a lot of money by not calling a service. Thanks again and would recommend this product to anybody who needs it.

Excellent product!
I used this kit on two ground nest's with thousands of the pests going in and out. We were going to have a cook out, I knew they would be a problem. Stalked them at 5:00 AM, followed the directions. No more movement by 6:00. Our cook out was a success with no invaders.

Worked just like they said it would.

Excellent product, exceeds expectations
I had a yellow jacket nest behind my siding. I followed the instructions for this product in spraying the aerosol, allowing to dry, then dusting. The results were very good and even exceeded expectation. The knockdown power of the aerosol is great. I sprayed into the opening where I observed bees going in and out and waited. Having used other bee sprays I was waiting for the bees in the nest to fly out, but that never happened. I even went so far as to bang on the siding to irritate the bees. Just to be sure I dusted the entrance, and left it alone overnight. There were no bees the next morning or any day since. Great product and worth every penny. Skip the products at the big box stores and kill the nest the first time with this product.

Great product!
Finally, we can finish staining our log home where wasps had burrowed in cracks and found their way into the house. I tried multiple cans of off the shelf wasp eliminators and then found Walt's to do the job. Easy to use though climbing 15 feet up the ladder to the holes was a challenge
Review by Cjm / (Posted on 10/11/2015)
Great Product!
This product works wonderfully. A week after ordering, I have successfully eliminated two large yellow-jacket nests underneath siding that would be virtually inaccessible without otherwise removing the siding. It was so easy to use, and I felt very safe the entire time. I would recommend this product to anyone.
Review by Steve / (Posted on 10/8/2015)
excellent product worked great
as per instructions I used the spray first on a nest in my siding, it killed them instantly. The spays at Lowes would not get up there and kill them. I used the powder but I don't think I needed it.
Review by Guy / (Posted on 10/3/2015)
I had a very pesky yellow jacket nest in my wall/eves getting larger and larger by the number of YJs going in and out. No amount of conventional YJ/hornet/wasp spray was deterring them. Was ready to hire exterminator and searched the internet to find Walt's instead. This stuff worked with one application. Wish they would sell in smaller quantities with cheaper price because I only used a little of each. Probably have enough dust to do 25 nests.
Review by Bilbotm / (Posted on 10/2/2015)
This product is the only thing you will ever need for your wasp and yellow jacket problems. I was truly amazed! Our hives were inside exterior walls (behind exterior siding) and very difficult to get to. This product made it very easy. Thank you!
Review by Bill / (Posted on 10/1/2015)
Worked as advertised. Great kit!
The 1st step, CB-80 made a major dent in my nest of yellowjackets, located in an exterior wall of my house right near the Garage. But the 2nd step, the Tempo dust eliminated them all! Worked like a charm. Great product, would recommend to anyone!
Review by Big Dan / (Posted on 9/30/2015)
You have been evicted !
The yellow jacket invasion was ended abruptly. The day I received my kit I waited until dark, and gave them the spray. There was two or three buzzing around the next morning and that is when I squeezed some powder into the gaps between my brick and foundation. I haven't seen any activity since.
Review by JoeDaddy / (Posted on 9/30/2015)
Good stuff!
I tried to reach the yellow jackets in the soffit of the house with six cans of hardware store sprays with no luck. But with just one application of Walt's Yellow Jacket Kit my wasp problem is solved. Well worth the extra cost to do the job right, the first time as I stood on a high ladder!
Review by Bill / (Posted on 9/26/2015)
Great Stuff
I purchased the kit and after killing one nest in the front porch pillar with the combo spray and powder I later found a 2nd nest between the concrete slab on the front porch and the brick. For that one the spray did not work because under the slab of the porch it is all open but the next night I pumped in the powder and that killed them. It appears the spray may have gone over the nest but the powder went on the nest. The yellow jackets were going through a couple small holes between the top of the bricks and slab.

This works !
On our way home from a Michigan vacation, I received a call from my Son. I had a nest of yellow jackets inside the overhang of my house and they had eaten through the drywall and entered into our living room. I had hundreds of yellow jackets inside the house. By the time we arrived home that evening, the bees had taken up there places for the night and I was able to vacuum up what I could find. In the process, I was bitten on the hand when I picked up a piece of paper; One had crawled under the backside. I taped up the hole the best I could with duct tape, but my wife refused to sleep in the house that night and slept in the car instead. The following morning I found more stragglers and eliminated them. I found your website and ordered Walt's Yellow Jacket kit. When it arrived a few days later, I treated the nest as instructed at night. One treatment was all that it took. The following day, the yellow jackets where gone. If anyone reading this has any doubts about this product...Don't It works !!!!!

Outstanding Product, works as stated.
Outstanding product, followed the directions to take care of an in ground wasp nest. Used the spray twice and powder once. I'm done wasting my money on store bought products that takes can after can to do the same job.
Review by Brad / (Posted on 9/16/2015)
Smoked 'em
I had a yellow jacket nest in a cedar tree hollow near my deck. Multiple cans of store-bought Wasp/Hornet spray (like, 10) didn't faze them. One application of this stuff really did the job, and I have enough left over to handle any more I may encounter.
Review by Ed / (Posted on 9/16/2015)
Great product package.
Used as directed to eliminate yellow jackets from behind house siding on my first application!! Thank you very much.

Great product
Have used kit to kill two yellow jacket nest so far. Worked very well.
Review by Homeboy / (Posted on 8/23/2015)
This Stuff Works
Purchased this product after repeated attempts to eliminate a yellow jacket nest in a wall cavity near my front door. I followed the directions that came with the kit and the next day, and for the three weeks since, no sign of any yellow jackets. The product was easy to use. I am very pleased and would recommend this product to anyone looking to rid themselves of an annoying yellow jacket, or other, wasp nest.
Review by Boofman1955 / (Posted on 8/18/2015)
The Best
This is absolutely the best yellow jacket control I have ever used-I applied the spray in the 3 openings of a very large nest in a garage wall-observation had shown thousands of yellow jackets moving in and out during the day, and I didn't feel any of the hardware store sprays could reach deep enough into the structure to kill the hive. The next morning there were about 6 workers, probably the ones that had clustered outside that night and escaped, trying each of the openings and then turning away. I applied the dust to the openings and haven't seen one since. I'm convinced and it was worth every bit of the price.
Review by Mike L / (Posted on 8/11/2015)
Outstanding product & people!
Worked awesomely at eliminating the nest of ground nested Yellowjackets I had. Went out at night w/the spray, used about half the can. None came out. Waited about an hour, as they were nested thru the bark dust and into the ground at the base of a tree trunk & I wanted to make sure the spray "permeated" everything in their nest. Went back out & dusted w/the powder in the bellows. Prepared to follow up w/a repeat the following night, but no need: killed 'em deader than disco! No jackets seen from that nest since! Awesome product, great people! Thanks!!!
Review by Brownie / (Posted on 7/12/2015)
Worked great!
I went after an inaccessible yellow jacket nest by spraying through a crack and it worked great. No stings and no more yellow jackets by my front door. Be sure to do this after dark.
Review by Jim / (Posted on 7/3/2015)
Really great product
This kit did exactly what they said it would do. I didn't know how big the nest we had was until after I killed it and started digging it out of the house. (Under our stair landing)

While I was doing that I noticed more yellow jackets flying around the edge of the concrete slab on the ground. They had migrated and started a new colony under the slab.

I used the spray (once) and after it dried treated it with the dust. No more yellow jackets.

This purchase was well worth the money and worked great.
Review by Ernie Hodge / (Posted on 5/22/2015)
Great product, great dealer - -buy from here with confidence!
Perfect system, easy to do. This is a yellow-jacket murdering machine. We almost look forward to getting more yellow jackets just to get at them. OK, that is a bit much, but this dealer is professional, thorough, and has a great product. it will do the job.
Review by ALK / (Posted on 12/8/2014)
The only stuff that worked!!!!!!!!!!!
We have a country rental home that the yellow jackets love, also a tenant deadly allergic to stings...not a good combination! I went to both big box stores by me to buy yellow jacket / wasp spray and tried to kill them with over 15 cans of the store stuff, but it didn't phase the yellow jackets. I tried three different brands and nothing worked. Then I turned to DIY PEST CONTROL for Walt's yellow jacket kit and followed the instructions and no more yellow jackets. I once again look like a hero. I'm guessing that the over the counter stuff in the stores must have changed (weakened) their formula because it used to work and now the wasps & YJ's just laugh at the stuff where they used to drop dead on contact. Thank God for DIY PESTCONTROL!

Did the Job
We purchased a home in Sept and quickly found out we had a pesky infestation of Yellow Jackets in our landscaping burm. The wasps were nesting in the rock wall and actively gathering for the winter to come. It looked like bugs were shooting out of the ground! We knew we had to take care of them because they could damage our yard. So first went cheap and tried the spray from Home Depot. It did nothing to deter the wasps. They we back the very next day. Then we found this kit. After two applications, we are wasp free! The spray nozzle didn't work, so we had to spray twice, but it was pretty simple. We've also used it for other types of bugs and wasps around our property. I'm sure it saved us $$ because we didn't need to get a professional. Thank you.
Review by BirdHaus / (Posted on 10/31/2014)
I did the treatment on a cool night, applying a good 20 second blast into the two nest entrances in a RR tie wall. Then dusted about 20 minutes later. Next day saw a couple of yellowjackets poking around in a confused state, and nothing since. They come back every year, so now I can eliminate the nests for several years hence for the price of a visit by the exterminator.
Review by nomojackets / (Posted on 10/23/2014)
Works as advertised. Very effective and easy to use. I had a nest with several entrance holes in a 8-inch square area. I used a piece of metal fine mesh with a hole small near the center for the aerosol tip to go through, which kept all the wasps inside the nest. I slid the mesh's hole into alignment with each entrance holes and sprayed into them, followed by the dust. Adios, yellow jackets.
Review by Consumer001 / (Posted on 10/17/2014)
I was a little skeptical at first because I always used gas in a ground nest of yellow jackets. The nest I had this year was in the side of a rock foundation. I used the spray and then the powder and the next day, no activity,no bees , and best of all no stings. Great stuff !
Review by Randy / (Posted on 10/17/2014)
Highly recomended
I had a gigantic yellow jacket nest in a wall. I drilled holes into the wall and then sprayed. After this, I dusted the opening and also put some in the holes. It killed the entire nest.

Walt's Yellow Jacket Kit Works!
Product worked as described. Killed entire hive almost instantly. Have not seen any more yellow jackets since applied.
Review by Exterminator / (Posted on 10/6/2014)
Even our monthly exterminator, who has done a great job ridding us of pack rats, moles, and just about every other critter that we have in Northern Arizona, would not tackle our thriving yellow jacket nest. They would fly in and out in droves from right by our front porch, and we coexisted for years; even though it wasn't pleasant having them, they didn't bother us and we didn't bother them. Then this past summer, our visiting son-in-law got badly stung, and a month later I did. That was it. Coexistence over. I bought this kit, followed the directions, and voila: gone, gone, gone. Our quality of life has been greatly improved; we can even have a meal on our back patio without having flights of uninvited guests joining us! THANK YOU!

Worked on two yellow jacket nests, easy to use, very effective.
Review by toma55 / (Posted on 10/5/2014)
Yellow jackets had built a nest behind the brick front of our home and had bored through the ceiling into the living room. Followed directions and one application did the job. Have enough remaining to take care of them again should we need it next year.
Review by John S / (Posted on 9/29/2014)
Extremely satisfied!
I had what turned out to be an enormous yellow jacket colony living in one of the exterior walls of my house. When there were signs that the yellow jackets were starting to come through the wall to the interior of the house, I knew it was time to act. An exterminator would have cost at least $200, but with Walt's Yellow Jacket Kit I eradicated the entire nest for under $60. It was quick, easy, and effective. I'm very happy with the product, the shipping, and the online information and support.

This product work great. I did have some difficulty with the nozzle, but I finally got it attached. I had two nest to treat. I waited until dark and sprayed the CB-80 in the holes waited a few minutes then applied the powder. When I checked the nest the next morning there were no Yellow Jackets to be found. This stuff is better then anything I found at the local stores.
Review by Grizzly / (Posted on 9/19/2014)
Worked like a charm !!!
After the use of the products in this kit, the problem is almost completely eliminated. And this was on a nest that can't be removed. After the spray and the dust almost no activity.

Yellow Jacket Nightmare...
One day I received a call from my wife indicating that she and the kids saw some sort of bee going into and out of the side of our house. When I got home and checked it out, they were entering where the air conditioning lines enter. I carefully measured where the entry was and went inside to look. We have a drop ceiling in the room where entry was and pushed up one tile to take a peak. The nest was about the size of a large mellon (think musk not water). Not knowing if they were bees or what, and since they did not swarm me when I pushed up the tile I took a picture. After zooming in, sure enough, yellow jackets. I remembered about this site from an ant problem about 10 years ago. I'm glad they are still here. Found Walt's kit and decided to order it. That was 3 weeks ago. The kit was sitting in my house for two week for it to happen. I got stung. Time for action. This stuff is great. I sprayed in their only entry point for about 15-20 seconds, and then waited. Nothing came out, no activity. After about 20 minutes, I applied the dust (maybe a bit excessively). I wandered down to the basement and peeked in again. No activity. I pushed a tile further in, and there were dead yellow jackets on the top of the other tiles. It's been 3 days and still no activity. Last night I went to a friends house and sprayed their yellow jackets as well. There was one that made it out of the opening, but it was curled up and not doing well. No other activity. This stuff is great.
Review by George / (Posted on 9/9/2014)
Perfect solution.
Worked as promised. Applied as suggested at night and repeated once the following to hit the very few subsequent hatchlings - no more ground wasps. Dust applicator worked perfectly for me and would appear to be good for numerous further uses. Plenty of each product left for further applications. Thanks, DIYPC!
Review by Osceola / (Posted on 9/7/2014)
Worked as advertised
Followed the instructions, no more Yellow Jackets. I had a nest starting in my wall next to my fireplace, tried everything the local hardware store carried. Nothing could penetrate deep enough, i was about ready to start drilling holes but saw this on the internet.

Done deal. Highly recommend!!
Review by Chris / (Posted on 8/31/2014)
Good stuff
I had yellow jackets behind my vinyl siding and looked like O'Hare Airport before I got Walt's.

I followed the instructions, waited til dark and laid siege to the entry points.

Next day, no sign of life. Awesome stuff!

Excellent product!
Worked the first time. Have enough for a couple of more nests. Mine was in the block wall of a detached garage. Went out after dark and sprayed into their access holes (4), waited 20 minutes and puffed powder in the holes. No more yellow jackets.

Another Awesome Product
Got stung 8 times while mowing my lawn. Saw yellow jackets streaming in and out of a hole in the ground. Went out at midnight, sprayed then dusted... All gone. The next year I hear scratching in one of my walls. I see the same thing from a small opening in my siding. Spay and dust... No more scratching. I keep this stuff handy.
