I have a Red Paper Wasp nest laying somewhere in my bushes next to my wind-up hose watering box. We have looked for the nest & cannot see it. Today I bought a WHY TRAP for Wasps, Hornets & Yellow Jackets at Home Depot (before I discovered your site). IF it kills any of the wasps…what about the queen & are there larvae in the nest that will eventually hatch? Can I dust the bushes with your dust & eliminate this problem? My biggest concern is that they will live through the winter and we will have a bigger problem next year. We have had a major problem with Honey Bees, Red Wasps and Yellow & Black things that I think are European Wasps. Wasps and bees have never bothered me before, but this year we have had them in our house, my nephew got stung by a red wasp, and I have been stung by both a Honey Bee & a yellow and black thing that had a nest that looked similar to the red wasp nest (it had a slender body). I am now terrified of anything that flies! The Honey Bee stung me in the back of my head, the nape of my neck, and the yellow thing stung me on my thumb. My head still has a bump after 1 month, and my finger is still swollen after 5 days!
