Carol asked:

I had a wasp nest in the wall void of my bedroom treated a week ago. Last night, I still heard some buzzing. I looked around the inside of the room and found nothing, so I figured it must be coming from the wall. From what I understand, the nest should have been dead after a few days. So, is it possible that a latecomer had just contacted the treatment one week later? Or is it some new pest that I should worry about?

Paul Sweet replied: Hi Carol, it is probably a wasp from another nest which has been raiding your dead nest out.
If there is no activity like before at the entrance then the nest is dead.
Hope this helps.

karen asked:

Will a treated nest begin to smell after a while due to the accumulation of dead wasps or larvae?

audrey asked:

I found wasps at the entrance of my storage unit at noon today and they were scary so I didn't get out of the car because they were behaving aggressively. I know they will die in winter but I need to get a box out of storage now. Is there a time of day they are more dormant less likely to notice me entering storage?
