The blue black wasps have moved in. I sprayed them with wasp-n-hornet spray. Will this eradicate them?


Just for a bit of info, wasps are pretty awesome. They kill and eat a lot of pesky pests in the yard such as tomato horn worms, and they also pollinate. There are many wasps that aren't aggressive and will mind their own business - people aren't food or a threat unless provoked. I have a couple of mud dauber nests near my front door, but mud daubers build their nests and leave within a few days. I've never encountered hornets, but I think they might be one I wouldn't tolerate near an entrance to my home. The wasp and hornet sprays will generally kill everything, including you if given the correct dose, so to answer your question, yes.
Plus one!

.  Those may be mud daubers. In which case, there is no need to eradicate them. Knock down their mud nests a few times and they will move elsewhere.

If you sprayed the nest, it should. It may take a little while.
