Bed Bugs Treatment with Tempo 1% Dust

Apply Tempo 1% Dust to areas such as mattress folds and tufts, spring coils, cracks, or hollow places in bed frames, furniture upholstery, and picture frame moldings.

Carpet beetles Treatment with Tempo 1% Dust

Apply Tempo 1% Dust under edges of floor coverings, baseboards cracks, under rugs and furniture, and in cracks and crevices in closets.

Clothes Moths and Silverfish Treatment with Tempo 1% Dust:

Apply Tempo 1% Dust to cracks and crevices in closets and other storage areas. This is an adjunct treatment and will not control moth larvae already on the clothes. Do not apply to clothing.

Fire Ants (including Red Harvester Ants, and Pavements Ants) Treatment with Tempo 1% Dust:

Avoid disturbing the mount before applying. If possible, treat all colonies in the area. Distribute the product evenly over each mount and around the perimeter of the mound: use the higher rates for larger mounds. For best results, water mounds gently after applying. High water pressure will cause the ants to move the mound. Treat new mounds as they appear.

Bees, Hornets, Wasps, Yellow Jackets Treatment with Tempo 1% Dust:

Thoroughly dust nests and entrances and surrounding areas. To treat nests in wall voids, drill a hole in the area, dust entrance and surrounding areas. Wear protective clothing if necessary to avoid stings. You may also help avoid stings by treating wasp and bee nests in the evening when the insects are less active and are inside the nest. For best results. check nests within one or two days to ensure complete kill. Remove and destroy treated nests to prevent emergence of newly hatched insects, secondary pest problems, and possible staining from honey. If removal is not possible, retreat the nest, if necessary.

Beetles and moths Treatment with Tempo 1% Dust:

clean area thoroughly, removing infested foodstuffs and all utensils, uncovered foodstuffs, shelf paper and other objects. Apply Tempo 1% Dust in voids, cracks and crevices behind and under cupboards, food storage areas, and cabinets. Do not apply Tempo 1% Dust directly on food, utensils, or food storage shelves.

Termites and wood-infesting beetles Treatment with Tempo 1% Dust:

Apply Tempo 1% Dust to voids and galleries in damaged wood, in spaces between wooden structural members, and between the sill plate and foundation where wood is vulnerable. For inaccessible areas, drill into the damaged wood or wall voids and then inject dust using a suitable directional injector.

Termite carton nests Treatment with Tempo 1% Dust:

Termite carton nests in building voids may be injected with a pointed injection tool at varying depths. For best results, remove carton nests material when possible.

Above-ground termites and carpenter ants: for control inside tree, utility poles, fencing and decking materials and similar structural members, drill to find the interior infested cavity and inject dust.

Please follow product label instructions to insure proper application for particular insect pest infestations

Best treatment ever
I received my order quickly and put it to test on my bee problem, amazing how fast the problem was taken care of.
I was quoted $750+ by a company, this DIY solution saved me a heck of a lot of $$$.

Carpenter Bees No More
Tempo Dust rid our home of carpenter bees. 1 day following application there was not a carpenter bee in sight. They were falling from the sky immediately after applying to their holes and cracks in our cedar siding. We had previously paid an exterminator to apply residual insecticide at $150 per visit and never had the result of total annihilation like with the $25 tempo dust. You don't need a pro if you have Tempo!

Carpenter Bees Be Gone
We've been battling carpenter bees for years and last year came found DIYPest Control. The Tempo Dust has been the most effective product we have ever found. The bees carry it into their nests so it works against the ones we don't see as well as the annoying ones buzzing around our house. We treated twice last season but missed doing the fall treatment and plugging the holes. So they did come back this spring, but in much reduced numbers. First treatment of Tempo Dust seems to have worked. This fall we'll remember to do an end of season treatment and plug all the existing holes.

This product works excellent on Yellow Jackets and Ants
I have used this used this on yellow jackets in the past and I had ants coming into my home recently and used ant killer twice but they kept coming back So I sprayed this in the crack they were coming from and no more ants. Gone

After trying sprays bought at the local hardware with no effects. Bought this, used it once and the problem was solved.

Unto Dust
Used on a beehive in siding, 1 wasp nest behind shutters and 1 yellowjacket nest in siding.

Everything is dead within days. Think apocalyptic armageddon, but on a 1/64th scale.

If it came to the point where i ran out, no doubt in my mind i will be right back here ordering.

Saved my birthday
I had a hive of wasps or hornets under my cement patio (between ground and cement). I tried 2 cans of wasp spray from local hardware store, I tried burying the hive entrance, I tried drowning the hive with water- with absolutely no results. I ordered Tempo dust with 1150 duster (bulb duster) and it killed them with one application! I arose early in morning when chilly and dark (5am in Sept) on my birthday. I added abt 6 oz to bulb and a quarter as well to help loosen things up when I shook the container. Make sure you read directions and don't add too much powder to bulb. Also add a coin and shake between each spray to make each spray the most effective. Don't apply when windy. It did clog up a few times, but I was able to get it working each time by shaking the container well between sprays. Make sure you use a mask/eye protection/disposable gloves/old clothes. I washed my clothing a took a shower immediately application. Wonderful product--I highly recommend!!!!!
Review by Annie / (Posted on 9/18/2019)
Defend with dust!
I had tried just about every top-tier spray (as I'm sure many have as well) - but to zero effect. Did a little research on Tempo Dust, and decided to give it a go - and the results did not fail me. The bees were only around the target area for about 45 minutes after the application (realizing that their 'home' was now officially closed for business). If you do not already have a bulb duster, add in the 'B&G 1150 Duster' with your dust purchase, as it is more than worth the asking price (and utilize the pro tip by placing a coin inside the bulb to keep the granules from clumping). Awesome, awesome product!!

One and Done
Worked with one application to kill carpenter bees nesting behind wood siding. Very effective.
Review by Stung Thrice / (Posted on 9/3/2019)
Tempo Dust worked GREAT!!
Had a bee nest in a crack in a concrete foundation. Dusted with another dust product that didn't work at all so, I decided to try Tempo Dust. This stuff worked on the first application!! Once applied, within a matter of hours all activity at and around this nest came to a halt.
Review by RonReviewer / (Posted on 8/31/2019)
Great stuff!!!!
This really works! I tried 3 different wasp sprays and also sprayed them with talstar for 2 weeks did not kill them. Puffed the powder into my soffet before day break--no bees!!, checked all day no bees!! For the people that gave this a 1 star rating, you obviously did not apply it properly. This works!!!
Review by Mark / (Posted on 8/30/2019)
Best product EVER!!!
I Can't say enough about Tempo Dust and I have recommended it many, many times to others. For some reason, the place we moved to had SO many yellow jackets building nests in unreachable places. After a few of years of trying different things to get rid of them, I discovered this product. ONE, yes ONE application of this stuff and there was no sign of them the next day. Very thankful!!!
Review by Rayston / (Posted on 8/28/2019)
Great product.
I was nervous about it, but with the bellows, I got the powder up behind the electrical outlet where the yellow jackets were nesting (at night). I think one application would have been enough, but I did another after a couple days. NO sign of yellow jackets now. None. THANK YOU!
Review by CFM / (Posted on 8/20/2019)
Wonderful!! It works!!
I bought this to have ready when the snow melted. We had a lot of aggressive yellow jackets (stinging when walking several feet away) coming from our porch overhang (and going into our attic) last summer. Nothing we used was taking care of the bees/nests. I bought Tempo Dust during the winter to have ready and my husband applied it twice (once a couple weeks later) to inside the porch overhang. I am very happy to report it's been 3 months and we have not seen one bee!!

I perched the carpenter bee kit for our white pine sided cabin. Followed instructions which were simple and put a hurting on the bee problem. Well worth the money.

Works like a charm! The yellow jackets that thought my back porch would make them a nice home are history. I would definitely recommend this product.
Review by SeattleSue / (Posted on 10/15/2018)
Tempo dust used with a bulb duster eliminated yellow jacket problem.
Yellow jackets entered a small space between the siding and wall block, and spray can application was not effective. Using tempo dust and a bulb duster to treat the area behind the small opening was effective after day one through the current time frame of 3 weeks. Great product.

The terminator for yellow jackets
As a greenhorn, I used the spray to kill yellow jackets. Little did I know that they only kill on contact. No residual effect at all. I have used this all around my personal house and commercial properties and it does what it says it will do. I love it!

I offered it to one of my employees to kill a yellow jacket hive in an opening into her house, but she was to much of a creation lover to use it. She thought it would harm cats and didn't like how it hurt the bees after puffing it into her walls. doh!

Review by Rita / (Posted on 10/1/2018)
Worked perfectly. I squirted some into and around the edges of a yellow jacket nest just after dark. I never saw a single one come out of that hole again!

Review by woody / (Posted on 9/14/2018)
It just works
Finally a solution to Hornets and Wasps in the eves. We have had constant issues with the hornets and wasps nesting in the eves of the house....until this. Puffed this stuff up around the house and have not had a problem since. Spring time will be the true test, but at this point I am very happy with the results.

Wonderful Product - Hubby's so happy
Yellow jackets had made a nest under the dryer vent, inside the outside wall of our home. My husband had tried 4 different cans of spray that was supposed to kill them. But none of them worked. I finally went online, found your site and talked to one of your very helpful exterminators who directed us to this product. One application and it worked like a charm. One container will last us through several years. This is a terrific product that we will never be without again. Thank you for helping us find a great solution.
Review by Debby / (Posted on 9/6/2018)
Took Care of my Yellow Jacket Problem! Fast!
I had a Yellow Jacket nest below the fence next to my garbage bins. They were an extreme nuisance because we take trash out the garbage bins almost every day and they were very aggressive. I tried 4 whole cans of Home Depot and Walmart sprays - along with Yellow Jacket traps - and that barely made a dent. The Yellow Jackets were still there aggressively defending their next after two weeks. Then I bought some Tempo Dust and dusted the nest. Two days later - no more Yellow Jackets! I will use this product from now on for Yellow Jacket/Wasp problems and recommend to anyone else with the same problem!
Review by Mike G / (Posted on 8/13/2018)
Very Effective
Had my Bi-Monthly bug guy spray under my eaves where Yellow Jackets were congregating. Two days later no change. Got my Dust dumped it in the area. Little bit of a reaction. Within a day no activity, it's been a week with no activity or sightings.I highly recommend this.

Excellent for Wasps
Product worked perfect on the Wasp nest in my Cedar siding, all dead and gone with in 3 -4 days
Review by Brian / (Posted on 12/18/2017)
I used this product to kill a large colony of wasps that had built a nest inside of a brick wall. I pumped a generous amount of the dust into the small opening using the B&G bulb M1150. As far as I can tell all the wasp were dead after about four hours.
Review by Bob / (Posted on 11/30/2017)

100% effective in my experience
This is the first time I've ever had to deal with some really tough little yellow jackets. 3-4 relatively large trail side, in ground nests - two had (2) entrances. Watched all the fun/ silly/ painful vids on youtube. Almost went with the spray from the big box store ------- DON'T BUY THE STUFF FROM THE BIG BOX STORE ----- then looked at the products' online reviews - not successful.

Bought a painter's TYVEX suit, put on my bug net over my head, wore thick gloves - had everything taped off - then applied the dust very early in the morning - well before dawn. Concentrated on the hole only. One nest had about 10 soldiers hanging out on the perimeter of the hole - and this was a little scary, but everything went as planned.

Returned to the multiple nests 24 hours later -suited up again - zero activity. Picked out (3) volleyball sized nests and (1) smaller nest at the different locations.

No more trail side attacks on people or their dogs. I used the B and G rubber ball duster with the dust and found the combined products to be 100% effective. Ca, Central Coast, trails

Killed the boogers
Review by Tater / (Posted on 10/16/2017)
I give this product a 1000.Wow!
Best product ever! My pavilion had been taken over by hundreds of wasps. They were behind one of the walls and getting in there between the ceiling and the stone veneer of the fireplace. For weeks I tried canned sprays, a badminton racket, and another dust power. The badminton racket was probably the most effective, but they just kept coming! I found this product and read the reviews. I received the TD on Monday, put several poofs into the cracks between the ceiling and wall that night. On Tuesday, I went out and saw two wasps trying to get back into the nest area and one wasp hobbling out. The two wasps trying to get back in, just left. And, that was that!!! Never thought it would work so fast. WooHoo and thank you Tempo Dust!

Best Product Ever Used
I had a yellow jackets nest in the foundation of the house.. There was a very small crack that the yellow jackets were entering and I tried all types of insect spray, to no avail. I spent more on cans of spray than the actual cost of this product.. I finally found this product on the internet and decided to try it.. I blew the dust into the small crack one time and that did the trick.. No more yellow jackets going in and out.. The best product I have ever used and would recommend it to anyone.
Review by Ed / (Posted on 10/13/2017)

The best product you'll ever need.
I tried all the hornet/wasp spray at the box stores, and then I found this with the 5 star reviews. This product is so amazing! I sprayed the dust into the soffit, at evening, and almost totally wiped them out. One more application the next evening and I have not seen a one since. Goes a long way, so I will have plenty for next year I they decide to take up residence elsewhere next year. Thank you for this great product and getting my sanity back.

It really works.
Nothing else worked. I hate killing bees, but we were all stung multiple times and had over one hundred come in the house. After using this I saw the queen leave the area and we had no problems by the next day.

One Application - GONE!
Autumn in Michigan brings cool weather, changing leaves, cider and donuts, and yellow jackets! A colony of them set up shop in a crack in my garage foundation. I tried everything - Hornet bomb, foaming yellow jacket spray, cussing and swearing, and even considered a can of gasoline. There were literally hundreds coming and going every minute. Fortunately, Do It Yourself Pest Control suggested the perfect cure - Tempo Dust. One application at night time and BOOM, I haven't seen one for weeks! I highly recommend Tempo Dust!
Review by DIY Joe / (Posted on 9/25/2017)
Great Product and Site
I bought after reading everything you need to know about getting rid of yellow jackets here at the site. Go ahead and buy the duster at the same time if you don't have one, you'll probably wish you did.

The entrance to the nest I was after was under landscape timbers and apparently the hive was higher than the entrance so I was having little luck with liquid killing stuff. 1 day after coating the entrance with Tempo activity was way down and after 2 days there was no activity.

I didn't originally order the duster and really didn't need it for this particular application. I think the duster would have made it harder to get a decent amount of Tempo at the hives entrance, dusting from the bottle did good for this. I have since ordered a duster as I have other critters around the house I have to occasionally deal with. This is where the duster will be required so as to not distribute to much product and make a mess.
Review by MIkee / (Posted on 9/25/2017)
Positive and cautious
Tempo Dust eliminated a yellow jacket nest under the eves of my two story house. I had previously gone up a ladder at night and sprayed the insect access hole but this did not eliminate the insects. I had two other nest sites start up in the meantime in my garage roof and house siding/foundation line. I bought a trap which was next to worthless (caught two yellow jackets in 12 days) so I used the Tempo on those nests also. All gone.

But caution in following directions is needed. One or two "puffs" is enough!
Review by Hank / (Posted on 9/15/2017)
Great results
I purchased Tempo Dust for Yellow Jackets. I have used it at my house and my son's house on two different sites. In all cases we saw 100% results with no bees visible within 24 hours. I highly recommend this product. It sure was better than paying $200 dollars for an exterminator.

Better than I thought
Each year my attic gets infested with red wasps.
This year I wanted to do something, called around to get quotes from pest control places and prices were pretty high but I thought were worth it since those red wasps get so bad in the attic they start coming in from the fans. Before I called I wanted to give them one last try, found this site, saw this stuff was recommended. When I got it I followed the instructions and used the duster to dust some powder into the holes they were coming from. Did this at night.
That night and the day before I watch wasps fly out of there covered in white powder and fall to the ground. Not only that but several roaches made a run away from the area we dusted.
Highly recommended. Wear gloves, mask, eye protection.

It works!
After trying 2 other products (1 spray and 1 foam) which both failed to eliminate an underground hornets nest near the foundation of our house, Tempo Dust took care of our problem immediately. One small application (at night) and poof - no more hornets! (The container is bigger than expected and will probably last a very long time).

If you need to eliminate a wasp, hornet, or yellow jacket nest, then Tempo 1% Dust is the best. Apply Dust with the B&G 1150 Bulb Duster. No more high Pest Exterminator bills.

Bought two more bottles for this year.
We have a tile roof and were invaded with paper wasp, last year we paid $300 for a pest control to spray the roof, two months later the bees were back, I bought Tempo dust and dusted hundreds of nest. Didn't have any more problems the rest of the year.

I was battling carpet beetles that had set up housekeeping under the surround of my Zacuzzi bath tub. Many over the counter bug bombs later, they were still thriving.

I used this product with a huge duster and they are gone. I know I will have to continue monitoring for many months, but the application was so easy that I don't mind.

Great product.

Great for killing bed bugs
Highly recommend for bed bugs. I read on a blog that tempo dust dries out the bed bugs and kill them within 24 hours upon contact. I bought this along with a duster and dusted lightly around my bed and entire apt. I was rid of bed bugs within 24 hours however i didn't have a bad infestation either. If your situation is bad, you will notice a difference immediately but it will take some time to completely get rid of them bc the bugs have to actually crawl thru the dust. So dust lightly on and around all cracks, crevices, mattress, bed posts and box springs . Too much dust and they'll avoid it

Eliminates Hornets Fast and Easy!
European Hornets built an enormous nest in the 2nd floor soffit of my roof. They're big, nasty hornets that will fly at night toward lights and hit your windows so hard it sounds like stones hitting the glass. Their nest was in a difficult location to reach and I didn't want to go anywhere near it. I applied the Tempo Dust with a home made air powered applicator all around where they were entering. Killed the entire nest within an hour. Worked fantastic! Climbed up 15ft extension ladder, pulled open the soffit and removed a basketball sized nest, no hornets to be seen, they were dead. Saved a lot of money, the cost of a professional exterminator would have been well over $150 to handle the problem.

Had a hornets nest in the siding of my house and could not get them out. I got some Tempo Dust and squirted in some of the openings, and like magic they were gone the next day.

Worked great!
Used this on 3 nests of ground dewelling wasp? That had not been bothered by several other products. Dusted the nest in the evening. Checked next day, no action to date.

tried the product after everything else failed.1st day just sprayed the opening,where the hornets were coming and going, and they seemed not to like it.2nd day drilled a 1/4 inch hole thru the garage wood, and sprayed more dust into the hole ( in which was above the nest) within 8 hours, they were all gone and haven't been back. 2 thumbs up on this product.

Finally found this stuff!
After years of trying the aerosol sprays that don't work on yellow-jacket nests that you can't see and hiring the pros to come eradicate them with their "magical yellow powder", I am so glad to have found the same stuff the pros use! I used the Tempo Dust on eight nests, six of which were not exposed/visible and the next day - not a yellow-jacket in sight (didn't even see any dead ones). Great stuff! You don't need to use much and I certainly have a lot left over for use over the next several years. Spent less on the Tempo Dust and bellow-duster than a single visit from the pros. Highly recommend!!!!! Apply it at night.

This stuff is incredible
I have used this on two inaccessible yellow jacket nests in different parts of my house. In both cases, all I had to do was put the powder in and around the crevices that the insects were using to get into their nest, and two days later I had zero activity. All insects were gone. I love this stuff.

Super Yellow Jacket Death Dust!!
We're having a horrible year for yellow jackets in Oregon. It's all over the news. I got stung multiple times and I'd finally had it. The stuff from the home center didn't do anything. I tried Tempo one time on two different underground yellow jacket nests in the back yard, and BAM! Both of them gone overnight in one shot. It was really easy to apply with the bellow duster; just wait until evening when nest activity is low and shoot it in the hole as best as you can. I figure is used about 1-2 tablespoons on each nest (rough estimate). It worked like a charm. This is the stuff!!!

Excellent product
The Tempo Dust kit (dust and stick) is absolutely the best product to get rid of bee/hornet/wasp nest, no matter where it is located. Just a couple of applications and you can rest assured you solved a major problem. I highly recommend this product. It may seem expensive, but it is definitely worth it.

Took care of the bees I needed to get rid of !

Effective product at a great value
I used the Tempo Dust as a 2nd step behind the FenvaStar EcoCap and together they provided a long term solution I was looking for at a much lower cost than hiring a professional pest control company.
If you are concerned about getting stung or bitten, call the professionals, if not this is the perfect one-two punch the carpenter bees (the ones with the shiny black bottoms (bumble bees have hairy black behinds)) in the big wooden play sets.

Good Products
It was cooler. So the bees were in their nest. I use the purchased bulb and poofed in the dust well. Then sealed with caulk. No more bee problem.

It works
I moved into my house in late August of 2014 and after moving in we saw a lot of wasp. Every time I went outside they would fly at my head and every where I looked I saw them. Winter came and they went away. Then Spring arrived and they came back. I was finding at least one a day in my house and all over the place outside. I decided to try Tempo dust. My fiance dusted in the attic, the window shutter and behind the gutters. At first I didn't think it would work because later that day I saw wasp flying around covered in the dust and they seemed fine. It has been a month since he has dusted and I haven't seen any wasp not even one in my house or around my house. I am so happy. Also i bought two bottles and I only have used half of one bottle so a little dust goes a long way and it is so much cheaper then calling pest control.

WASPS in the house!!!
We moved into a "new to us" house on the same day they finished the roof. First day we had 2 wasps in the family room, next day 19, we had a problem. Local professionals were willing to treat, but no guarantees since we didn't know where they were. Others were happy to start tearing out the cathedral ceiling to find them. So we started out on a process to find where the nest was and the access to the inside. Once we figured that out we used the TEMPO dust in the little entrance hole they had at the roofline and then about 4 feet below where we estimated the nest to be. Within an hour we had 84 dying wasps on the ground. ( I had killed apx 150 in the house during the several months) While we continued to redust every week, for 6 weeks (I more to go) we have not seen anymore. We plan to seal the access hole they had after that. The TEMPO saved us a lot of money and a ceiling. However the process we took did require some patience.

Thanks for a great product.

killer dust
I had yellow jackets building a nest in a wall of my house. Came straight to this site where I buy all my pest control supplies. By the way, Bifen IT is awesome on mosquitoes. But back to the yellow jackets. DIY suggested Tempo Dust and man were they right. Waited till dusk and pumped some dust (with a bellow duster purchased from here) into the crack outside that they were using for access. Also drilled a couple of small holes through the sheetrock and pumped in some dust. The next day the access point, which looked like LAX with yellow jackets coming and going the day before, was deserted. I saw one yellow jacket. One! Nothing else I need to say!

got rid of the bees
when we first used it we had a lot of bees dropping dead outside the house where there were going in. It was a corner by the eaves. We continued to see bees going in and out but sprayed it again when it was very cool and that is the last we have seen of them. None going in none going out. We have had trouble before and called an exterminator decide to do it ourselves worked great worth the money

very good
This product was very good compared to anything we could buy from a local store. We tried several other 'proven' products first and got almost no response at all from them. We used this product just once, and we are still finding dying wasps or hornets (never determined which it was) several weeks later. It was unfortunate that they had chosen a spot to make their nest right above our main entrance door, so we had to find something that really worked well.

Much better results than I expected.
I was trying to paint my house but the wasps had made nests everywhere in the facia areas and were giving us fits. Countless cans of spray did little more than make them madder. The day after the dust and duster arrived the morning weather was cool so I took the opportunity to do as many areas as I could reach with a ladder. I not only blew the dust into the areas with the duster but left a film on the exit areas. The results were immediate. Wasps were dropping everywhere. Even if they made it out of the nest areas they were unable to fly and just hung on to the siding until they dropped to the ground. But, best of all, is the lasting effects that have continued to kill all of the new hatches. More than a week later we were still seeing dead bugs on the gutters and grounds. The dust is VERY fine so it reaches areas that you can't even see. Because of this, be sure to read ALL warnings, stay upwind, and wear appropriate protective gear. A little goes a long way!

Tempo Dust worked great
I used the Tempo Dust in combination with the B&G Bulb Duster. I dusted the entrance to a yellow jacket nest in my sofit at night and the yellow jacket activity was gone within 24 hours. This was after I was unsuccessful fogging the cavity with another product. Great results.

great for yellow jackets
I've been in pest control for over 10 years and this is the best product for yellow jackets. Always amazed how well it works

worked as expected
I had yellow jackets entering under a basement window sill that is only a few inches from the ground.. Puffed the dust in the best I could and left some around the area. Repeated two more times and haven't seen any for two weeks. So far so good.

Excellent product!
I had yellow jackets under a gutter cap and in a soffit that the wasp sprays couldn't get at. I used this powder and three (3) days later they were gone!!! I will defiantly tell friends about this product!! Can't wait till next year to let them have it again!!!

good stuff
Worked great on the spider problem on my boat. Only problem was finding a way to spray the duct "up" in crevices. ducting "down" no problem. Virtually ELIMINATED massive spider problem at dock.

great product
I had a bee colony in the wall of my house that was not exposed other than a small hole in the exterior. I used this product with a bulb duster that cost less than 10 dollars. I sprayed one time into the hole and haven't had a bee since the next morning.

Bee's are gone.
A hive of bee's found a way into an exterior wall. Applied at night and the next morning no more bee's. Very effective.
Review by Larry / (Posted on 3/20/2014)
Works like a charm
I had a wasp nest that was located through a foundation joint opening. I tried D-Dust but that was not effective. When I received the Tempo Dust I applied it at dusk when the nest activity was minimized using a duster bulb to get the powder into the crack. One application did the trick. It put down the nest completely. Next day, not a single wasp to see where previously there was one every few seconds. great product!!

excellant product
First time we sprayed the hornets we didn't use enough but the second time we sprayed a lot more and it worked real good. We're
waiting for cold weather to remove the nest. It was in the attic and was hard to get to,but my son managed. He wore coveralls boots and a bee hat with duct tape on all seams.The hornets had a hole in the wall in our dining room & he put gorilla tape on that to keep them out .
he poked a small hole in the wall and sprayed in there too! What a relief to have them gone!

Great Carpenter Bee Dust
The Tempo Dust is great stuff. Drops Carpenter bees fast and stays in the hole for bees to track it in and out.
