No one enjoys waking up to find a hornet or wasp’s nest right outside their front door. Having these kinds of critters can be a frustrating type of infestation. They are dangerous in a way that most infestations are not. A wasp or hornet can sting and inflict pain when they do so. 


A hornet or wasp nest can pose a risk to your family, especially young children who may be playing in the yard outdoors. If you find yourself facing this issue, it’s essential to get the right treatment and products to safely and efficiently eliminate the nests. 


During the summer months, you may find more of them flying around. If you’re doing any yard work and home maintenance, you may come into these aggressive insects’ paths. To treat a hornet or wasp issue, here are two products we recommend you to have on hand. 


Spectracide Wasp and Hornet Killer 

Spectracide Wasp and Hornet Killer is a powerful 25’ jet spray blast capable of killing hornets and wasps directly upon contact. It is also useful for eliminating wasp and hornet nests hiding in a corner on the building’s exterior or ground. It conveniently sprays from a safe distance of up to 27 feet. It’s important to remember the Spectracide Wasp and Hornet Killer is only safe for outdoor use, never used indoors. 


Bengal Chemical Wasp and Hornet Killer 

The Bengal wasp and Hornet Killer is uniquely formulated with insecticides that target insects such as bees, wasps, and hornets. It contains two active ingredients that are highly effective in killing aggressive insects. The solvent-based formula offers maximum lockdown. 

The Bengal Chemical Wasp and Hornet killer is an aerosol spray also safe for electrical equipment up to 38,800 volts. It boasts a twenty feet nest-drenching blast, which means it will instantly knockdown and kill the nest and the wasps from a distance. 


To make better use of this product, avoid spraying on asphalt surfaces, shrubbery, plastic, vinyl, and rubber. It’s easy and convenient to use and will act fast and save you from escaping a wasp attack. 


Preparing Yourself to Safely Use Wasp and Hornet Spray 

Before you go ahead and purchase wasp and hornet spray, you must know how to use them safely. Follow these tips to ensure you get the job done right.


  • Follow the insects to see if they’re all heading to the same place.
  • Ensure there are no openings or holes to prevent any wasps or hornets from entering the home.
  • Wait until early morning or after dark to spray any nests.
