// How to use Drione for Control of Wasps
To control wasps, it is generally advisable to treat nests in the evening when insects are less active and have returned to the nest. Apply 0.25 - 0.5 g of Drione per average size nest. To ensure adequate control of wasps in larger nests, apply 1.0 - 2.0 g of Drione per nest. Dust nest and entrance and surrounding areas where insects live. Nests in wall voids can be located by listening with your ear against the wall. Drill a hole in the area, blow dust in, and reseal. For best results check nests carefully one or two days after treatment to ensure complete kill, then remove and destroy nest to prevent emergence of newly hatched insects. If removal is not feasible, re-treat the nest again if necessary.
