Since the yellow jackets hadn’t built their nest in our mailbox yet (The key word here is yet. I know they will because they have every year for the past 5 years) I hadn’t had a chance to try the product, yet.
So when my FIL mentioned that the yellow jackets had started building nests under the eaves of their house I offered him EcoSmart’s Wasp and Hornet Killer to try.
I could tell that he was a bit skeptical about it but when I explained how it works and that it is safe to use around pets (my in-laws have a dog which they love dearly) he agreed to try it.
Since EcoSMART’s proprietary botanical oil blends attack attributes that are specific only to pests, they do not effect people, pets or the environment.
“Pleasantly Surprised!” Was how my FIL put it.
He was impressed with the spraying power and how quickly and efficiently it worked. My MIL commented on how nice it smelled (unlike the traditional sprays). They both said that they would definitely use it again and that the little extra $ they would pay would be well worth it ($8 for a 14oz can of EcoSmart vs ~$5 for a 14 oz can of Raid).
Wasp & Hornet Killer Active Ingredients:
- Peppermint Oil .......................1.00%
