Do My Own Pest Control

Hi neighbors!

This summer we have been having a real problem with wasps outside our back door. They have been building nests, and are constantly flying around out there. With six children and 2 dogs, I don't need anyone getting stung. Do My Own Pest Control was able to send us Wasp Freeze-Aerosol ($16.49) and Tempo 1% Dust ($24.90) along with the Bellow Hand Duster ($12.99) for inserting the dust into cracks, crevices and holes where wasps might be living.

My husband decided to use this as a teaching time for the children. He showed them the wasp nests and we were even visited by a wasp or two while he explained what he was doing. After reading the directions out loud, so everyone heard the precautions and warnings, he proceeded to fill the bellows and dust 2 nests, along with a few openings we believed wasps were in. He used the spray on one of the nests where we could see a wasp, which fell to the ground immediately. It was nice too that you can stand a safe distance away while using the Wasp Freeze Aerosol which shoots up to 15 ft. Not bad as long as you have good aim.

The Wasp Freeze is supposed to work on Wasps, Bees, Hornets, Spiders, etc. I am keeping the can handy for now. The Tempo 1% Dust works, on all sorts of pests. Wasps, Bees, Hornets, Ants, Roaches, etc. My husband is going to spray it under the edges of the house. That should help control some of the other pests we have.

You can find all of these products at Do My Own Pest Control, along with many other products for dealing with pests. Make sure to check them out if you are having any problems.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation. I did receive Wasp Freeze, Tempo 1% Dust, and Hand Bellows for review purposes. All quotes are taken from the Do My Own Pest Control website. All thoughts and opinions are mine.

My grandson just got stung by a wasp this week. I felt so bad and wished we had taken earlier measures to get rid of "nests". SO scared of bees!
