Hi, I built a small log cabin last year and this spring I noticed wasps going in places in on the outside log wall. The cabin is in Southern Utah. I am allergic to wasps, yellow jackets and hornets. What is the best way for me to get rid of them in around the cabin. Do you sell the products? Thank you.
If you review our WASP CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn wasps are naturally attracted to dead wood and since a cabin is made up of nothing but dead wood, it’s sure to draw a lot of attention if left untreated. In our article you’ll also learn about several products that can be used to keep them away but based on your message, there are three that I’d use if it was my cabin.
The first would be DRIONE DUST. This product is very active on wasps and if you go around the cabin dusting all the cracks and crevices into which they might try to nest, you’ll quickly kill any there and keep them away for months. Basically Drione Dust used in the spring and fall would be all that’s needed because it works that good.
Unfortunately Drione is a little tedious to apply and for some people, the extra work is not what they’d prefer over using a spray. So if you prefer to mix something up with water and spray, do so with the CYPERMETHRIN. It will repel wasps well but it just won’t last as long as the Drione. For that reason you’ll have to apply it throughout the year. Bank on once a month applications to stay on top of these pests.
Lastly, the NBS PAINT ADDITIVE is something I feel like I should mention so that the next time you paint or stain the cabin, you can add some to the application and get in doing so get extra long repellency. NBS is a natural insect repellent and wasps, ants and bees will stay off of where it’s been applied.
Here are direct links to the information and products listed above and yes, we do sell them all through these links as well as over the phone for call in orders.
