Does Lysol Kill Wasps? [Answered]

Lysol cleaner kills wasps dead, also hornets and yellowjackets. Most household cleaning products will kill insects.

I would recommend using a can of pesticide wasp spray because it will shoot 20 ft so you can stay clear and be safe. Lysol only sprays about 3 ft so you have to get much closer.

The best time to spray the wasp nest is at dusk or dawn when they are all there. You can wear gloves, long sleeves, and hat to cover up for protection.


Active ingredients in Lysol:

  • Benzalkonium chloride
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Ethanol
  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • Potassium hydroxide


Other ways to kill wasps:

  • Vinegar and water spray
  • Soap and water spray
  • Wd40
  • Water and smoke
  • Lemon extract
  • Peppermint spray


They are dangerous because they can sting multiple times and are not afraid of humans. If you see them nesting around the house you must eliminate.

Wasp spray can kill a snake.
