Best Spray for Removing Wasp Nests

Wasps frequently nest behind siding, vents, shutters, and other openings around the exterior of a house during the summer months. This can become quite a nuisance for some home owners as the wasps interfere with normal daily activities. For a quick knockdown you can spray the wasps you see with a contact kill insecticide such as Stryker Wasp & Hornet. It can also be used to eradicate nests that are visible and easily accessible by spraying the nest from a distance.

Many wasp nests are hidden from sight however, and those are more difficult to eradicate. Locate the opening to the nest by monitoring active wasps from a distance. Once you see the wasp land on the house, watch closely and they'll often disappear into an opening. Depending on the type of opening, a Pyrethrin insecticide with a crack and crevice tip such as Stryker 54 Aerosol is useful for destroying the nest.
