Final Thoughts

Every killer product has its pros and cons, and which type of product to choose will depend largely on your situation at hand.

For getting rid of wasp, hornet or yellow jacket nests, a spray killer would be more effective than the other products while the electric zapper will be more effective in killing 1 or 2 wasp or hornet that made its way into your house or attic. The trap killer products are more preventive than to help solve a wasp or hornet infestation.  

As with treating any pest problems, always consider wearing safety gears like gloves, goggles and masks. This will provide good protection not only from the risk of inhaling the treatment, but also from the possible attack from the wasps, hornets or yellow jackets.
