Green ants gone!

Purchased this at Bunnings as a last ditch effort to get rid of green ant nests in the lawn. I had tried other cheaper products such as dusts and granuals but they never worked, so i was hesitant to spend $20 on another dust product...glad i took the chance because this stuff worked a treat! A puff of dust on every nest I found- and it didn’t need too much- and the nest was lifeless by the following day. I have also used it on tracks of soldier ants going into the brickwork of the house & the tracks were gone the next day also. Will purchase again.

Worked like a charm on European wasps

Had a wasp nest in a crack between bricks and was going to call the exterminators in. It would have cost a few hundred dollars. Bought a bottle of this stuff and put on all the protective clothing I could find. Had a good few minutes before the wasps got really angry. Re-applied 2 hours later and there hasn't been a single wasp fly in the crack in the wall since.

Used about 1/4 of the bottle. The bottle does say to use nearly half of it for a nest, but this was a bit unnecessary.

Tip: - Slice the top of the nozzle back slowly to expose the opening.

Wasp Dust

This year has seen European wasps in plague proportions. Having tried all manner of old wives' tales to target the blighters I emptied half a canister into the first nest and within 24 hours activity was negligible. Repeated the dose and got the backyard back.

This works well on soldier ants

Had trouble with ants coming from neighbours shed at night. Tried many things but Bayers ant and wasp dust worked the best. A tiny spray on a rogue ant or two from over the lane worked wonders, too.

Not sure! Couldnt get it to work!

paid 20 bucks for something I cant use, I cut the end of where the directions said to, but nothing comes out, no puffing whatsoever. It cant be that difficult can it? That said it probably works well, if the packaging was better. And believe me I havent done it wrong!
It probably does work
puffer pack doesnt actually work

Hi Paul I've used it and it was really good - maybe you were unlucky and got a faulty bottle - can you take it back and exchange it?

Effects of wasp dust on water supply

Yates · 

Hi Norman,
Dangerous to fish.

DO NOT allow chemical containers or dust to get into drains, sewers, streams or ponds. Remove or cover fish tanks during treatment.

I live in an apartment and in my balcony there is a wasp nest, I would very much appreciated it if you could tell me which product I should use? I have see foam products and others normal spray products and I am not sure which one is more effective!
Thanking you in advance

Hi Abraham,
The Blitzem - Wasp Killer & Nest Destroyer would be best as you can stand a safe distance from the nest (at least 2m) when treating the nest. Wear protective clothing and treat in the evening when wasps are in the nest and are less active.
'Blitzem - Wasp Killer & Nest Destroyer' for the control of wasps in hard to reach and sheltered places, where wasp nests are generally found. Click here for more info on this product: http://www.blitzempestcontrol.com.au/products/blitzem-wasp-killer-nest-destroyer/

Can Bayer Advanced Garden Ant & Wasp Dust Puffer Pack be used inside a room inside a home?

It's a poison. You should avoid inhaling the dust. You should avoid leaving it where pets or children might contact it. I haven't personally used it indoors. But I've used it very close to inside our house, by running a thin trail along the outside front doorway entrance and the outside window frames. It kills ants and millipedes trying to crawl into the house. Then next day I use a damp cloth to wipe up the residue. You can find Material Safety Data Sheets for most chemicals online. They give in depth recommendations.
