At fifty cents a can I can't imagine it would do anything other than piss wasps off and I certainly wouldn't be spraying it in the direction of a hornets nest. EEK!

Hi guys, I am the one lone person that has had good luck with these sprays. What I do is get up at dawn or pre dawn when the cold blooded wasps or yellow jackets are barely moving and let them have it. They all die. Do I fight them during the day when it is warm? Do I try to hit them on the fly? Never! I am sure there are better sprays but this works for me. I used to use gasoline in my youth but I think this is a little safer. Probably not as fun.

The key is getting them at the coldest, earliest time of day with proper distance so they do not fall on you. I would even advocate doing it at pre dawn with a flashlight. Another alternative is to set one of those fruit vinegar traps people make on youtube. I will be the first to tell you this is not the best stuff to use but the technique is hard to beat. I use to have to sample water monitoring wells and yellow jackets would form nests in between the months we sampled and there would be 40 to 50 yellow jackets in the locked control switch. I would go out at 6 AM and get within 3 ft to kill them since they couldn't move fast. Anyway it is more the technique than the spray in my opinion. Buy whatever you think is safer.

I hit the wasps in the middle of the day and only in flight. I like to give them a sporting chance. Any small children that are gathered around that get sprayed or stung is just called "acceptable collateral damage.". Bring your own EpiPen, kiddo!

you say that as if i know where the wasps are hiding out. if i did, id have already killed them all.

my issue is randomly seeing one in the middle of the day and watching him land somewhere and start going towards some "hole" ...at that point i want to be able to whip this out and hit him once, have him fall and then spreay more to ensure death

Power to you. I will know where they are. Since cold blooded wasps or yellow jackets are least active at the colder temperatures , I would just note the place and get up the next morning and kill them when they are most vulnerable without being stung. The hotter it is the more active they are. To each their own.

I have used this kind. Had a good stream, but most importantly, the wasps
were never able to fly once it touched them. They always dropped, not flew.

I caught a sale like this on a Spectra brand I believe it was, and although it had a great stream,
the wasps were still able to fly.

Ruptured discs in my back prevent me from being able to run, so them still flying
was not a good thing.
