Wasp Problem

I have a serious wasp problem. In my garden under my roof I see a lot of wasps coming in and out but I can't figure out where exactly their nest. I tried to use different sprays(Raid/Wilson/CIL) but they didn't work maybe because they didn't reach the nest. I'm looking for some toxic smell/aerosol product to fill out the space under the roof so maybe then they will be dead. Does anyone know any these kind of products or products containg dichlorvos or something like it that I can buy somewhere? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Evgeny

We had a big wasp nest in the window several years ago. We went to the hardware store and they recommended a product that you sprayed on the nest to seal it and the wasps suffocated. That solved our problem. sorry, I can't recall the name of the product but if you ask at the store, someone should be able to help you. Maybe you can seal up the entrance with that. Good luck. Marg
