Being a bee keeper I get all kinds of calls about Yellow Jackets a WASP by the way and other stinging insects. I charge $300.00 if the home owner just flat does not want to deal with them. I need to kill the wasp ASP and clean the area up so you would hardly know they were around.

 

I use this http://cdn.spectrumb...1121301109.ashx

It reaches 20 feet does not harm vegation and will kill any missed wasp up to 4 weeks if it is not washed down by rain watering of extra heavy dew. Try to find the entrance hole once you do go to it after it gets so dark you can just barely see, Do not use a flash lite. Spray into the entrance as best you can. As the can says will kill up to 4 weeks just by contacting it.

 

You were able to use the mower and trimmer fine because you were not causing vibration that bothered them, but the hedge trimmer started shaking The shrub right into the roots.

 

Bald faced hornets, dead in 10 minutes.

You all know those tennis rachet thingees that work like a bug zapper? I tried it on a wasp. All it did was make it really mad.

No matter how much you want to save the hedge, remember this:

They liked it so much they built their home there.

Fire cleanses all.

Provo is a type of cheese, and it does not kill hornets. Unless you add fire.

I use gas and fire or soray depending on where the nest is located.

$ 300 to kill hornets. I've been doing it for free for too long.

I think I will stick to the insecticide that will not harm vegetation. Obviously we got us some pyrotech's on this site lol! I sometimes enjoy some pyro technique once in a while way outback on my place @ the TenntucKY line~

People call me I tell them for free how to rid the place of them Some just do not have the back bone to do it. So they ask what I charge, that is 300 no matter the distance from my home. That was the going rate that pest control companies charged and they never cleaned up the nest when finished I was told.
