When you sprayed, did you remove the nest as well?

I think they suggest that you spray the nest at night and remove it the next morning. At night, all the bees should be in the nest. Once you remove the dead nest, any new bees should find another place to build a new one. If you leave the nest, more bees will just move on in.

I'd spray the daylights out of it again and in the morning, take a broom handle and knock the nest down and squish it!!

the nest is hard as rock. they even made it into the house. drywall keeps them from comming into the house. but in time that will not stop them

BEEEEE very careful !!! we had to call an exterminator... the bees chewed thru the dry wall and made a huge hole to get into the house....if they are in the rafters , you can bet you will not get them all when you spray , it is best to let a professinal do it, after all , they will guarantee the job.. and know exactly which chemical to use ....

Had to remove a small nest from a relatives home. The nest was about the size of a canalope. Sprayed the opening of the nest with a complete can of spray. Killed the ones at the opening instantly. Knocked the nest down a short time later and the ones inside the nest were also dead. I used the spray can that can spray up to 25 feet and it worked well.
