What is the active ingredient?
Hawkeye Wasp Bait contains 0.4% Indoxacarb
Is it dangerous?
Indoxacarb has a low mammalian toxicity and is one of the safer insecticide active ingredients available to people and pets. The product itself is no more toxic than table salt (but it still should not be consumed).
What is the difference between a commercial and home use station?
A commercial station is larger and is designed to hold 20g of bait whereas a home user station is designed to hold 10g of bait. For typical residential use, a home station should be sufficient.
I only have a few wasps hanging around. Should I use Hawkeye wasp bait?
We recommend that Hawkeye Wasp Lure is a better choice if you only have a couple of wasps hanging around occasionally as it will trap these scout foragers and prevent them returning to the nest. Continual foraging from wasps or larger numbers requires Hawkeye Wasp Bait or Hawkeye Wasp Lure depending on numbers. A heavy infestation requires the use of both Hawkeye Wasp Bait and Hawkeye Wasp Lure to eliminate the nest effectively.

I know where the Wasp nest is. Should I use Hawkeye Wasp Bait to eliminate it?
While you can use Hawkeye Wasp Bait, if you know where the nest is and it is a hazard to yourself or your family we recommend calling in a Professional Pest Controller who can get rid of the nest straight away.
Wasps don’t seem to be feeding on the bait. What should I do?
A lack of feeding may mean the station placement isn’t optimal or the wasp bait is spent. Contact us for assistance in station placement or replace spent bait.
Does Hawkeye Wasp Bait attract bees?
