We have been plagued with those Red devils for as long as I can remember. We have had professional exterminators come and dust the attic, replaced our traditional roof with a metal roof, even got rid of our family pool to deter the buggers. Nothings seems to keeps them away from our house! We have seen where they are going in the small ridges on the metal roof but can’t see an actual nest anywhere. Occasionally we find almost dead ones in our basement near the furnace/ac unit. We are at our wits end trying to get these aggressive devils defeated. Any suggestions?
This is an easy one. First, read our WASP CONTROL article. In the article you’ll learn about a dust called DRIONE. This dust is highly repellent to all flying insects – especially wasps. Get this applied to any crack or crevice your red wasps are using and they’ll immediately avoid entering the treated area again.
I feel it’s important to point out that Drione is rarely used by pest control companies and when they do choose to apply some, it’s only in cases where they know they need to get positive results. As distributors of pest control products, we know what companies use and in every case they’ll choose the least costly dust for the job. In most cases this strategy will work fine but unfortunately it won’t work for wasps.
So if you want to get them off and away from your home, have a service company apply Drione to the entire exterior of your home or do the work yourself and in the process, save a lot of money and know the job is being done properly and thoroughly.
Now since Drione will last a long time, we have found that if you dust your home’s siding in the spring and fall, you can keep it wasp free. But if you see wasp activity on the exterior surfaces of your home that you can’t dust, go with the CYPERMETHRIN listed in our article. Cypermethrin is a concentrate that is applied with a sprayer. Simply put, it’s like Drione in that wasps don’t like it.
