My neighbor has wasps that have made a home between the shingles on his
roof. About a month ago we tried a product called No-Pest Wasp & Hornet
Killer (tralomethrin, cl--trans Allethrin ??) but now they are back with a
vengeance. It appears we're not getting in-between far enough to get to
their home. Normally I wouldn't worry about them but they are in a high
traffic area between our houses. They are coming out on the side, between
the roof and the shingles. Is this something a professional has to do or is
there a product we can p/u that will persuade them to leave or maybe just
croak? They are just normal looking wasp. Large yellow and black. I live in
Thanks in advance.
Well the product you have will eventually make them move(maybe just two
feet over from where they are entering the shingles now or die out, but
the formulation of the product you would have to probably spray the area
every other day for a week? for a month?(depends on the actual number of
nests and the sizes of the nests up there) to keep a repelling/killing
residual. Doubtful that even though they are in a high traffic area they
would become a risk factor unless the neighbor was going to have some
roof work in that area or when Winter comes he may have some find their
way inside the structure.
