This stuff rocks!
I purchased two cans of this stuff about 2 1/2 weeks ago because I had some queen bees infiltrating my deck. The usual stuff from our big name hardware stores didn't do the trick and only worked when you've sprayed about 3/4 of the can directly on one of them if you are lucky to get close enough. Well I waited until evening and sprayed underneath my deck and a couple of days later their activity went drastically down. Last weekend when I went to cut my grass I saw that the entire nest was on the ground under my deck where I sprayed. I am so impressed that I am back to buy more bottles b/c I have a bush in front of my driveway that attracts yellow jackets and they can get aggressive if they feel you are a threat, I know because I've gone down that road and got stung 4-5 times in a row . Highly recommend this product.

This was recommended by my uncle who has a farm.
I’m back to get more of this spray to help an elderly neighbor. A long time ago we had a huge wasp nest in a tall shrubbery along side the front yard by the driveway. My husband is super allergic to these sort of stings. And at the time our now grown son was incredibly curious about every little thing. After he came running in after being stung, I came here. I waited until dusk. And since it was next to the driveway I moved my car to alongside the nest and parked, sort of a makeshift tank? I cracked the window and sprayed. It turned out I didn’t need my tank, because the wasps that were hovering around the nest just dropped dead. The next morning when I came to check, there was an actual pile of dead wasps on the ground, too many to count. Never had a return problem. Also, as several people mentioned they did on here, I saturated the nest when I sprayed. Since then I’ve sent anyone who has a wasp problem here.

Works great!
The wasp & hornet spray purchased at Home Depot only had about 10% the strength of this product.

After several uses of the Home Depot brand (Spectracide I believe) the basketball size nest on the eve of my house was still buzzing.

The Bonide spray did the job.

The best wasp killer I have found
Wow! Had used several cans of different brands on a “hidden” nest with absolutely no results. Immediately after the first treatment with Bonide we had 4 inches of rain over 3 days. When I was able to check, there were almost no wasps. One more treatment and NO wasps.

It works!
I had a tiny wasp nest. Bonide killed the critters from a safe distance and saved me a big exterminator bill.

Great paralyzer
This product is a lot better than the store bought main brands. Hitting them with this paralyzes them in the spot and they don't fly away. A lot of the national brands take time for them to die and may fly around for a little. This is instant.

This product works
In contrast to the products I purchased at the grocery & hardware stores, this product absolutely worked. I followed the recommendation to deploy it at night. The next day was 'R.I.P. wasp colony'.

Efficacy of Bonide Wasp and Hornet Spray
My prior purchases worked great, this, unfortunately, not so much. The spray did not come out in the a focused stream like the prior purchase, so I was not able to shoot the spray into the nests. Still have wasps, but not nearly as many, going to spray again.

I had 2 nest on back of my house. I used 6 cans from Walmart and they did nothing. I sprayed once with Bonide, saturated nest, and they were GONE. Save money and buy this.

Good stuff
I sprayed the wasp nest at night and they had moved out by morning. Either that or the little bastards are all dead in the nest. This stuff is powerful. I got tired of being stung so I called out the heavy artillery.

Watch your landscaping
This stuff killed half a wax mrytle bush that I had a nest in. I was shocked to come out the next day and find leaves turning brown and now half the bush is dying. This stuff is terrible.

For the last 2 years, my home has been infested with European Hornets, you know, those extremely aggressive hornets that look like over-sized yellow jackets. The stuff you get at local stores, Home Depot, Lowes, all the name brands, don't touch these hornets. I sprayed the name brands on the hornets nest to saturate, and it didn't phase these hornets (other than make them a little mad). This product, a 2 second spray, killed the entire nest immediately, on contact. Any returning hornets took a quick turnaround when they got about 3 feet from the saturated nest and they never returned. this stuff is amazing!

This was the first product that actually works.
