He pumped up the tank and shot a bunch in the hole and white dusted yellow jackets came flying out and after a short time, no more yellow jackets.

need I say anymore.....some have no morals with using old stock

But 330 just watch for emerging adults that were in diapause cause they will come out in 2-5 days and will be agitated

Best to clarify BEES or WASP in your post

sevin (carbaryl a.i.) and permethrin are very low toxic to to warm blooded species and specific to insects of many types. Both have been registered for dogs and cats. I use a harsher one in diazinon (the a.i. in many wasp sprays) mixed in a pump sprayer to get any ones flying out and around that i missed. It is a little more toxic and has some residual but dilutes and breaks down environmentally in a reasonable time frame. Not as quick as I once was so I like the misting action of a 1-1.5 gal. pump sprayer to get a flying kamikaze once in awhile....................... the mike

They have sold permethrin to specifically use on dogs for fleas and ticks for many years.

Total lack of creativity here.




Brake, and Carb cleaner knocks them out of the air.


Expandable spray foam seals holes.

Well,,the permethrin I have is for treating clothing before going into the woods.Says Do NOT let come in direct contact with humans OR domestic animals,especialy harmfull to dogs.Supposed to spray your cloths(while not wearing them),and let dry for at least four hours before wearing the cloths.Seems to be conflicting suggestions for use.And the stuff I have is made by Sawyer,,same outfit that is in your link.Im going to make a call to them tomorrow.
