SCHAUMBURG, ILL.  —The Zoëcon Professional Products division of Central Life Sciences announced the availability of its new Wasp-X Wasp and Hornet Spray. Wasp-X spray contains the active ingredient etofenprox, a unique molecule classified by EPA as reduced risk.

Wasp-X spray kills on contact and provides quick knockdown of wasps, hornets and yellow jackets. Its jet spray will reach nests up to 20 feet away, and Wasp-X spray can be used indoors in non-residence areas like attics, steeples, barns and other spaces where nests are built.

“Wasp-X spray is a new addition to the Zoëcon Professional Products solution portfolio for pest management professionals. Wasp-X spray provides effective control against wasps, hornets and yellow jackets. It offers quick knockdown and residual control of foraging workers retuning to the nest,” said John Neberz, Business Manager, Zoëcon Division of Central Life Sciences. 

The active ingredient in Wasp-X spray, etofenprox, has a favorable environmental profile and is a pyrethroid-like, non-organophosphate, non-carbamate adulticide.
