    We are now taking calls for Cicada Killer wasp control. What is your favorite product to "take 'em out"? ..... Sevin dust?, Talstar? (liquid/dry), etc, etc. p.s. Our mowing crews are having to avoid lawn areas cuz they're pussies. It's only the female that bites, and only if you antagonize them.

    rscvp, thanks :waving:

    after researching these pests previously, it would seem that maybe
    treating a larger area with sevin and bifenthrin would provide decent control,
    i think diaznon woulda really fit the bill- rip
