      I live east of Dallas, TX. There are dark red wasps in the grass right outside my back door. Two of our dogs and one person have stepped on them and been stung. We just put in a pool and they are all in the grass and in the dirt where the grass hasn’t had time to grow back. Please let me know what I can do that is safe for dogs and kids. Thanks.

      If you read our DIGGER WASP article, you’ll learn more about this pest and how to treat but the following is a short overview of what will work.

      The most direct approach is to dust all the holes you see with DRIONE. This dust is fast working and will kill active wasps using the nest and any developing young inside. Use a HAND DUSTER to make the application.

      Drione:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/dust/drione-dust

      Hand Duster: http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/crusader

      Digger Wasps:  http://www.bugspray.com/articles99/diggerwasps.html

      Once dusted and the problem is gone, use CYONARA RTS to spray the entire yard every 1-2 months so more don’t come around and nest.

      Cyonara RTS:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/liquid/cyonara-32-oz-rts

      Lastly, are you seeing wasps “dipping” into the pool? This activity is when they’re seen flying low to the pool water surface as if they’e trying to land. When doing this, they’re actually trying to take water to use for their young, to build nests, etc. And if you have wasps doing this in your pool, you should get some KILL IT to treat your pool water. This will cause them to seek water elsewhere and in turn, decrease the likelihood of nests forming on your land.

      All the treatments listed above are safe for use around children and pets; just keep them away from the area when treating but as soon as it dries, they can come back to the area and go about their regular routine with no hazard present.

        I get wasps behind my shutters and would like to eliminate this problem. What would be the easiest solution? These are just a decorative shutters and easily removed.

        You’ve got a couple of options. The first would be to leave the shutters in place and puff DRIONE DUST behind every one. Drione is highly repellent to wasps and they will stay off treated surfaces. Simply puff 2-4 times behind the sides, top and bottom and the light floating Drione Dust will promptly kill any nesting. It will also sit on the shutter as well as the side of the home providing long lasting residual.

        In protected areas, treatments can last 6-12 months but outside, its hard to say. I’ve seen these areas tend to stay dry and if that happens, you could easily get 3-6 months of good protection from one treatment. So I would start with Drione since its easy to use, fast working and long lasting. And you can treat without having to take the shutters down.

        Drione:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/dust/drione-dust

        Hand Duster: http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/crusader

        Now if there are shutters too high to reach from the ground, get a DUSTICK to help. It will let you dust up over 25 feet and can help to reach second level shutters, cracks and crevices.

        Dustick:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/dustick

        The second option may be needed if the Drione won’t last 2-3 months. You’ll know because if the wasps come back in 2 months or less, it may be a better plan to spray.

        And the best spray we have for them is the CYPERMETHRIN. Mix 1 oz per of concentrate per gallon of water and apply 1 gallon for every 500 sq/ft of surface area.

        Spraying might seem like the “easier” thing to do compared to using Drione but having used both for over 20 years, I’d choose the Drione over the spray every time. It just does a better job of moving about behind shutters compared to spray. And with the spray, if you can’t hit the surfaces directly, it can fail. But it does have its place and for wide open surfaces, a good option.

          My next door neighbor’s have a small fountain on their patio and so the wasps seem to stay on my patio and I just moved in. The patio’s are located in the front of duplex. What can I do to deter the wasps from my patio or building nests?

          You have a three options.

          First, you can space spray with PT-MICROCARE 1-2 a day. This should repel them for several hours after each treatment.

          PT-Microcare:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/aerosol/pt-micro-care-16-oz

          But as you’ll learn, the Microcare may not last long enough and in turn, require you to treat at least 1-2 a day to have any benefit.

          So to not have to worry about treating all the time, you could install an AEROSOL MACHINE  on the front porch. Commonly used to kill mosquitoes, gnats and biting flies, it will also repel bees and wasps. Basically you only have to mount it on the side of the home up the wall around 6-7 feet high. Next, fill it with a can of METERED INSECTICIDE and then turn it on. The machine will release some of the same active as the Microcare every 15 minutes and by constantly renewing the application, effectively repel all pests.

          Aerosol 1000:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/foggers/aerosol-dispenser-1000

          Metered Air: http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/aerosol/purge-iii-6-25-oz

          Lastly, spraying with CYPERMETHRIN would no doubt stop them from nesting too. This product is highly repellent to wasps, bees and pretty much any insect so it will chase them away. But if they choose to land on the treated surfaces, they’ll die.

            I have a house built in 1985 with a wood Burning fireplace. I have not had a fire in it in 20 years. Last summer (2014) I saw many wasps enter through a wide variety of holes. I sprayed about 6 cans of wasp killer spray into the holes where they entered. I then caulked as many of the holes as I could reach. This spring more wasps are around the brick fireplace and entering more holes. I need help because different professionals give different advice – “start a large fire in fireplace”,  “keep spraying”, “get a pro”, etc., etc. What would you recommend?

            Fireplaces are a direct route into any home. And if not in use, they will most certainly become a nest site for a wide range of insect pests. In general, many will nest and never be noticed because they’ll use the spaces for resting and nesting yet still feed outside. But some pests, like wasps, will readily fly around and this flying will many times cause some to end up inside the home.

            Controlling the problem can be accomplished a few ways depending on what you’re comfortable doing, not doing, etc. But two things you don’t want to do is spray wasp freeze and second, use caulking. Wasp freeze has no residual and though it might kill some wasps, you can never kill enough to get rid of them. And since its highly invasive, it actually creates better cracks and crevices for wasps to use for new nest sites.

            As for caulking; there is no way you can seal every entrance into your home. In fact the more areas you seal the more nest sites you create because wasps will learn to get in behind the caulking because it will be forming nice little pockets ideal for this use. And since most siding has these gaps as part of the homes natural design, sealing them up will generally only make matters worse.

            So what can you do? Fortunately there are some options.

            Clearly hiring a service company to thoroughly treat the exterior and inside the flue would be the easy way out. But chances are high they’ll only offer a short term “guarantee” and within a year, their treatments will wear away thus needing to be renewed. That means you will have to keep forking over a service fee if you want to keep living areas wasp free. But no doubt, this is an option. And if they treat right, they will accomplish said goal.

            Another option would be to start burning wood in the stove. Unfortunately a “big” fire alone won’t do it. In fact, it tends to make matters worse because the odor left behind when you cease burning will naturally attract wasps. So unless you want to burn every day for an hour or two, the space will simply get infested within a short time once you stop.

            So if you don’t want to keep burning, consider treating yourself. Using the right products will yield the right results and that’s where we can help.

            The first step in treating the problem yourself would be to thoroughly dust the homes exterior siding with DRIONE DUST. This will stop them from entering and since Drione will last 6-12 months, you only need to treat once a year. Now if  you can’t reach all areas, use a DUSTICK.

            The last bit of “treating” needed will be to set up an AEROSOL MACHINE just above the flues damper. These machines are small and will fit up inside any flue. Fill the machine with a METERED INSECTICIDE  and turn it on. Refills last 30-40 days and they’ll release a small blast of pyrethrin based aerosol every 15 minutes that will kill insect pests as they enter the flue. In fact it will work as a repellent for all pests keeping moths, flies, bees, wasps and more from coming inside. Keep the machine running from spring through fall and combined with the Drione treatments, you’ll be able to keep out any pest including wasps.

              We moved into a new home almost a year ago to date. There were wasps everywhere. They were getting in the house somewhere. Making nest after nest on our soffits. They were everywhere. Our house is large and from the backside the roof is a good three stories up and we have no way to reach that. Please suggest anything that would possibly help. I am in desperate need of guidance and the pest control services around here do not offer anything except knocking down already constructed nests, and as I said, they can’t reach the very high ones. Help please!

              First, you should read our article here:

              Wasp Control: http://www.wasps.net/wasp-and-hornet-control

              In the above article you’ll learn about all the treatment options that can be deployed to stop nests and from having wasps use your home to hibernate during the winter.

              In fact the problem will tend to get worse and worse because wasps use scents to mark good nest sites. And once a home gets marked with these odors, any wasp within a mile will know your home is a good place to live. This will lead to an ongoing problem unless you take measures to stop them from using both cracks and crevices as well as the soffits, overhangs, etc. for nest building.

              So where do you start? As  you’ll learn from our article, there are two main products needed to end the activity. The first step is to apply DRIONE DUST around the entire perimeter of the home. Drione lasts a year so you only need to use it once in the spring. Dust under siding, around window frames, along gutters where they connect to the home, where shingles overhang, etc. Basically any crack or crevice where you’ve seen wasps resting or entering gaps or spaces should be dusted.

              Drione:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/dust/drione-dust

              To apply the Drione from the ground or ladder, use a HAND DUSTER.

              Centro 14 oz: http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/centrobulb-14-oz-w12-ext

              But since your home is quite tall, you’ll find the DUSTICK to be quite helpful and well worth the investment. This piece of equipment will reach up 25 feet and extensions can be added if needed. Plus, it will last you a lifetime.

              Dustick:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/dustick

              Once dusted, let the treatment sit for a day and then spray the homes exterior using CYPERMETHRIN. This concentrate should be mixed at the rate of 1 oz per gallon of water and then the mixed gallon should be applied over 800 sq/ft of house siding. That means you’ll probably need to apply 2-4 gallons of mixed material to get the entire home treated.

              Cypermethrin: http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/liquid/viper-cypermethrin

              The cypermethrin spray is designed to make the surfaces of the home unusable for nest making and it will stop wasps (and other pests) for sure. But treatments will only last 4-6 weeks so it would be wise to treat once a month in the spring and then at least once every 2 months during the mid summer and fall season.

              Now, how do you spray the Cypermethrin? We have many options. First, any good PUMP SPRAYER that reach up 15-20 can be used.

              Solo 454 Sprayer: http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/sprayers/solo-1-gallon-sprayer

              But if you need to reach 30 feet or more, get the TROMBONE SPRAYER.

              Trombone:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/sprayers/trombone-sprayer

              Lastly, if you still can’t reach all the way up, get a fogging machine. I happen to have a bad problem with stinkbugs using my fireplace chimney top for hibernation during our winter months. I have two chimneys and both are so high I cannot reach them with any of the sprayers I have tried using. So after several failed attempts, I tried fogging and found our FM6309 can blast a mist all the way up no problem. In fact, it can reach both heights and has made the treatment process manageable. So if you find the Trombone sprayer may not be powerful enough to reach certain high points, the fogging machine will surely do the job.

                I was sweeping the cinder block foundation of dust & spider webs preparing it for painting with Drylock when I noticed wasps going up under the siding.  A neighbor destroyed a mud nest hanging on her porch.  Putting a mirror under the siding did not reveal the nest.  I sprayed with Raid Wasp & Hornet but I am unable to reach the nest. Please advise.

                I don’t think the wasp and hornet spray you’ve applied will help. Here’s why.

                You see, these products are designed for a quick kill in open areas and don’t offer any kind of residual action. So unless you were able to coat every member of the colony with the spray, its highly likely the nest will continue to prosper and be active. So if you see them active 1-2 days after you sprayed, it will be clear the treatment didn’t work.

                And if it didn’t work, you’ll need to do one of the following treatments.

                The first would be to apply DRIONE DUST listed in our WASP CONTROL article. Drione is quite “smokey” and when applied into any kind of small entrance way it will easily permeate up and into all parts of the nest assuring a quick and complete kill. So if I was to treat your home as a pest control professional, its most likely the product I’d use.

                To see how well it works, check out the following video. This video shows what Drione will do to a yellow jacket nest. Granted the treatment in this video was done to a nest located in the ground but regardless of where the nest is located, Drione will work the same way.

                http://bugspray.com/how-to-treat-yellow-jacket-nest-ground.html

                Now the only potential problem of using Drione is that if you don’t get the entire nest, you could force the wasps to find another route of entry in and out of your home.

                And when this happens, there is always a chance they will find a route which leads to inside living areas. For obvious reasons, this would be bad. So if you’re uncomfortable doing the treatment because of this risk, there is a second option that will work. It just takes a bit longer but it will do the job.

                So this second option would involve the use of PHANTOM AEROSOL. This product is slow to work and doesn’t kill or repel insects like Drione or Wasp Freeze.

                So if you were to mist the nest entry way every evening just after dark for say 5-10 seconds and then let the nest sit overnight, you should be able to kill any wasp entering the area. As stated the Phantom won’t kill them on contact. But after 2-4 days of them touching the treated surfaces and then “sharing” the treatment with other members of the colony, the Phantom will “translocate” to other members. And as it moves throughout the nest it will eventually effect all of them leading to the nest dying.

                Phantom comes with a straw injector and I recommend you use this to direct the spray up and into the nest hole. Again, you’ll want to do this in the evening when they’re all back inside and resting and you’ll want to get 5-10 seconds of spray applied every evening until all activity ceases. Based on previous results I’ve seen afield, it usually takes 3-5 days for the nest to become inactive. At that point you can cease treating.

                Oh, and if you sneak in quietly and spray for 5-10 seconds and then leave quickly, there will be little or no risk of you being stung since you won’t be hanging around after you spray.

                  Can you recommend a liquid concentrate that I can put into a pump sprayer? We have railings with spindles around our porch. Wasps love the “nooks” created at the top between spindles. Only way to get to spray up is from right underneath. Aerosol cans don’t work due to need to angle can to almost horizontal. Thanks!

                  We’ve got two options that will work. The first is a liquid known as CYPERMETHRIN CONCENTRATE. You can find it mentioned in our WASP CONTROL article. As the article details, wasps and other flying insects hate cypermethrin and will avoid anywhere it’s been applied. You can use it on your homes siding, soffits, railings, around windows, shutters, etc. Basically anywhere wasps want to make nests. Treatments will last 30-60 days and will both kill and repel any that come to the treated areas so you can use it to control existing nests and to help stop nests from being formed.

                  The second option is actually an aerosol. Now unlike a standard “wasp freeze” type aerosol, this product can be used to spot treat by “misting” the spray over the areas you want to treat. This means you won’t have to spray with the can pointed directly upside down which can no doubt cause issues. I actually use this product all the time on my boat to get wasps that want to make nests on my boats bimini top. I have to point the aerosol slightly “up”, at about a 45 degree angle, but it works fine at that angle. And it only takes 2-3 seconds of mist to get the surface treated. I’m mostly treating mud daubers but it will work on any kind of wasp.

                  So if you can get close to the “nooks” you mention are having the problem, PHANTOM AEROSOL might be something you can employ. It’s odorless, goes on dry and is very easy to use – especially if spraying a liquid can be messy where you need to treat. Just keep in mind Phantom is not a contact killer like the Cypermethrin. So even if you spray a wasp directly, it will not die. Now this is very much by design; Phantom takes 2-3 days to kill targeted insects but by taking this long to work, it can actually affect many other wasps so this feature is very much a “good thing”. Its also the reason for the products name; phantom insinuates that the treatment is undetectable by the wasps so they’ll readily walk over it without being repelled or concerned. And by not noticing it’s present, they will be picking up the treatment and as a consequence, die.

                    We have wasps in a glass enclosed propane fire place. Don’t know where the nest is but there are probably two dozen on the glass. How to remove them safely? Any suggestions? Thanks.

                    The easiest thing to try would be to open the flue and hope they “feel” the air flow that will be created. Typically when they do they’ll figure out how “follow the flow” and by doing so, they’ll get up and out of the area. This usually resolves the issue 50% of the time.

                    Now if this doesn’t work, turn on the stove. No doubt the flame will either force them to exit or they’ll die. Either way they’ll be gone.

                    But once they’re gone, your problem is far from over. I say this because what you’re experiencing is normal this time of year.

                    Like many insects, wasps will be seeking a good place to hibernate for the winter and no doubt they’ve found your home to be a good spot to use. That means more will be coming  and finding their way into your fireplace.

                    So to stop this from continuing to happen all winter, you’ll have to do some treating. And the first place to start will be the outside area where they’re no doubt entering and/or roosting. The good news is this treatment could solve the issue. You see, wasps love congregating under most any exterior siding used on the average home as explained here:

                    Hibernating Wasps: http://www.wasps.net/#lt-strong-gt-wasps-hibernate-during-the-winter-lt-strong-gt

                    So if you were to get some of the DRIONE DUST we have listed in our article and apply it to the top of your chimney box, there is a good chance this will kill any wasps present as well as prevent more from coming around and trying to use the area to hibernate. Drione can last 6-12 months and it’s a great product to use around the entire homes exterior once a year to prevent insects from nesting or roosting.

                    Now if you’re able to climb up onto your roof and get to the chimney box safely, you’ll only need a simple HAND DUSTER to apply the Drione. But if you can’t get that close, the DUSTICK will be the applicator you’ll need to get the job done. The Dustick is ideal for reaching up high can be particularly helpful if you decide you want to dust the rest of the homes exterior but don’t feel like climbing a ladder. I use it to apply Drione around my home about once a year and it stops pretty much any kind of pest including wasps, bees, ants, roaches, spiders and more.

                    Now in most cases, dusting these areas will resolve the problem. But if for some reason these wasps were actually targeting the inside of the fireplace exhaust pipe (which I’ve seen happen), then you’ll need to set up a treatment that will be spraying this space on a regular basis.

                    And this treatment will have to be ongoing because there is nothing you can use in this area that will last once you burn a flame. In other words, fire will destroy any chemical treatment immediately so if you are burning the flame on a regular basis, the easiest way to deal with this problem from happening would be to set an AEROSOL 1000 machine in the fireplace.

                    These machines are basically an auto dispensing system (they’re quite small too) that work by releasing small amounts of aerosol set to a timer you control. These treatments won’t last long which is why you want to set the machine to go off at least once an  hour, all the time. They run on batteries and are easy to deploy. And once in place and working, if any wasps fly into your flue and linger, the aerosol’s active will either chase them away or kill them.

                    Now if you want to turn your fireplace on and burn the flame, you’ll need to pull the machine out of and turn it off but this is easy to do and will only take a second.

                    And you will need to keep the machine filled with a fresh can of PURGE III which will need to be replaced about once every 1-2 months. Purge is safe to use in the home and won’t pose a hazard to people or pets so it’s safe for this application need. And it will work on any other pest that tries to get into this space so its a good choice for use in the fireplace.

                      I live in a 2 story house and every year in the spring there is a huge swarm of wasps at the top corner of the 2nd story. I need something that will let me spray 30 ft high to be able to kill them all. Do you have a sprayer that will spray that high? Thanks John

                      We have a couple. The most popular is the Trombone Sprayer. There is a video on the following product page which does a good job showing how it operates:

                      Trombone:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/sprayers/trombone-sprayer

                      The Trombone sprayer makes applying a good wasp spray like Cypermethrin easy.

                      But to get complete control of this problem, you will probably need to dust up under the siding, facia boards and possibly the roofing in the area. This is all covered in our Wasp Control article in the following section:

                      http://www.wasps.net/wasp-and-hornet-control/#lt-strong-gt-dust-gutters-soffits-overhangs-wood-siding-light-fixtures-and-other-exterior-areas-lt-strong-gt

                      Use Drione for this application and if you treat once a year (usually in the spring), this problem can be managed so it won’t be coming back over and over.

                      Drione:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/dust/drione-dust

                      Since wasps like to hibernate in these areas, treating with a long lasting dust like Drione can prevent such infestations and is well worth the time and effort to get done every year.

                        Hi! I had wasps sneaking in above and finally making it into our bathroom fan and freaking out my son. I had a prof pest control (?!) up until then. When a red wasp made it to the bathroom late last summer, the owner came and treated the attic, etc. I have since fired them. I thought one had to re spray/dust in the spring. I have a 4500 sq foot vinyl house in the country. I am a girl but I have crawled up in the attic before. What all should I get? It’s been cold in AL so I haven’t seen any wasps until today and don’t want them to pheromone their way back…EVER. Thanks!

                        If you read our Wasp Control article, you’ll see a product called Drione Dust mentioned repeatedly. If you apply it up under the siding once in the spring and once in the fall, you won’t have wasps foraging into your home anymore. Apply it with a Dustick and Hand Duster.

                        Drione:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/insecticide/dust/drione-dust

                        Dustick:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/dustick

                        Hand Duster: http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/crusader

                        You should also dust the attic at least once a year with the drione. Use 1 lb per 1000 sq/ft and use a Dustin Mizer or Power Duster to get it applied.

                        Dustin Mizer:  http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/dustin-mizerdeflector

                        Power Duster: http://www.bugspraycart.com/equipment/dusters/bg-2250-electric-duster-110-v

                        Lastly, if you find some flying around the outside of the vinyl trying to rest, spray with Cypermethrin. It’s highly repellent to wasps and will keep them off the exterior for a month or per treatment.
