Keep your surroundings free of wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets with the Bengal Foaming Wasp & Hornet Killer. This 16-ounce aerosol spray traps and kills on the nest to ensure a wasp and hornet-free environment.
Hornets, Wasps & Yellow Jackets
With a foam-trapping action, the spray quickly kills wasps and hornets on contact. It has a powerful jet spray that can reach up to 25 feet. The water-based foam will kill insects returning to the nest for a thorough and optimal extermination performance. It's safe on most ornamental plants and shrubs and won't stain most home siding and asphalt shingles depending on the condition and cleanliness. The foam contains a 0.5% concentration of its active ingredient, Permethrin, an insecticide that is a powerful killing agent on insects. If you need to treat areas with electrical equipment, use the Bengal Non-Conductive Wasp & Hornet Killer.

How It Works
While it does not contain a "knockdown" ingredient, the viscous spray provides excellent trapping action by sticking to the insects and preventing their escape until the Permethrin has time to work.
From a safe distance, treat by soaking the nest during early morning or late evening hours for the best results. Majority of the insects will be resting on the nest during this time. Do not spray this product on electrical equipment.
Is this product safe to spray if I have pets?
Bengal's products are safe for pets once they have dried on the surfaces, and the airborne vapors have cleared out. It is best to remove the pets from the treated area when the product is applied and keep them out until it is okay for them to return. This might be 30 minutes for Roach Spray and two hours for a carpet sprays like Full Season or Bedbug Killer.
Extra caution is advised for cats since they do not have the necessary liver enzymes to break down many pesticides. Do not get the pesticide on their food or water, and make sure that surfaces that they may contact are COMPLETELY dry.
Two hours is usually a safe interval for all the products, but may be longer in humid or chilly weather when it takes longer for the sprays to dry.
Why do you have to use the Bengal Foaming Wasp & Hornet Spray can in an upright position?
Never spray a can of any Wasp & Hornet Spray in an inverted position. This will allow the compressed gas propellant to escape from the can – the pressure will be reduce from 90 psi to less than 10 psi, which renders the product useless. All Wasp & Hornet sprays have this problem, not just Bengal.
Why use Bengal Foaming Wasp & Hornet Spray versus other wasp & hornet sprays?
Bengal Foaming Wasp & Hornet Spray propels a rich foam that traps the insects preventing them from attacking you. Its unique delayed foaming action allows the product to be sprayed on to nests up to 25 feet away. It can also be sprayed carefully on shrubbery where nests have been built. Bengal Foaming Wasp & Hornet Spray should not be sprayed near electrical sockets or equipment as it is water-based and can conduct electric current. Bengal Non-Conductive Wasp & Hornet Killer should be used in these circumstances
