What happened to wasp spray? Used to be that when you hit them they died instantly. Now they crawl around for an hour or so before they die and sometimes even fly off. Are yellow jackets tougher than other bees or red wasp?

put gas in a water squirt bottle. Dead before they hit the ground and you hardly use any.

I don't have problems with wasp spray and find it incredibly effective. If you are doing this in deer blinds get a fogger and set it off and come back in an hour.

Lots of things get weaker as time marches inevitably on. frown

But as far as wasp spray, I've had the best luck with the Raid brand.

Problem is genetically modified wasp (super bugs) have developed an immune system to the most deadly poisons out there eeks333
Reports from around the world have them carrying small children and animals off, really grin

All kidding aside, this stuff works great shoots a powerful stream quite a distance and the wasp are toast up

IF you don't need to spray 20' then you have other choices.

I use wasp spray only when I have to spray a stream way up under an eave of the house.

Everywhere else, (deer stands, around the shop, outbuildings) any place I can get within 10'of them I use Berryman's B-12 Carb spray. It puts them down right there.

No flying off, no crawling around...just drop and die.

If I can easily get to the nest, coffee can filled with hot water and Dawn dish soap works well. I have a few cans of the 20' variety and it is extremely deadly as well.

I use the coffee can filled with dish soap if its somewhere low enough that I can hit it.

Raid spray has done me well in the past with wasps. I'm allergic to their bites and swell up big, but Raid spray has been my choice. You might not be hitting them good enough. lol

Spectracide Commercial works really well and fast. Most die in a couple of seconds. One or two may fly off but they never come after you, they go to die. Make sure to get the that says "Commercial" on the can. They also have a "Professional" version that is safe for electrical equipment but I found it does not work as fast as the other.
Make sure to shake well before use. Maybe you need to do that with the brand you have now.

I have probably killed 30-40 nest this year alone with spray and they last about 10 seconds and die - not sure what you are using but every brand I buy works well

I agree, the stuff you get now is different. Doesn't hay Pyrethrin in it. Barrymans carb cleaner is the best and starting fluid works just as good.

Sounds like the lighter fluid these days...we don't use it much, but got some for a camp fire the other day and it was pretty sad.

I usually send my wife after the nest, I'll have to ask her what works best.
