Use a bucket to do the application and plan on treating in the evening right at dark.
Add 1 gallon of water to the bucket and then 1 oz of Maxxthor and 1 oz of Spreader Sticker.
Stir for 15 seconds and then slowly approach the nest making sure there is no activity. If none are seen flying in or out, pour the solution down the hole slow enough so it doesn’t over flow and drain away.
The Spreader Sticker allows the Maxxthor to “penetrate” all that much better so it gets the entire nest.
But when using the liquid treatment, you must be sure to use enough chemical. Furthermore, you must get every gallery and chamber so don’t let it over flow when pouring it down their hole.
You see, by design yellow jackets will build their nests to stave off floods. This means if the nest is completely built when you treat, there is a chance the drenching won’t reach every void when applied. And if you miss vital sections of the nest, the survivors will be able to rebound and survive.
To avoid this scenario, go with DEMISE DUST. Its actually easier to do, faster acting and because of the “smokey” like way Demise floats around, it will reach every chamber they’ve constructed. This insures a complete and thorough kill. The small size, the 3.5 oz, will be more than enough for a few nests.
Use a good HAND DUSTER to make the application.
