How do I get rid of bees or hornets, they fly under my garden shed?
I have screening between the floor and foundation. Can not see if they have a hive. So spraying does no good since they still keep flying through the holes in screen. How do I safely get rid of hornets and bees?

Granny on Jul 30, 2017SEVIN DUST. There is also SEVIN spray. I prefer the dust because I can see where it lands. I have used the dust on the perimeter of all building including the barns. It also discouraged ticks and fleas. it is used as a vegetable dust so it is not very strong. It just make things with more than 4 legs go away....I open the bag, grab a handful (you can use plastic gloves) and toss it where you want it. I have even thrown it up to hornets nests and walked away quickly..............lolHelpful Reply
