Yellow Jackets vs. Wasps
The east side of my house has become a battle zone between a nest of yellow jackets & a nest of big black/maroon wasps. Has anybody ever seen this sort of behavior?
It's scarey to behold -- these guys are really fighting. They get so riled up they fly around the house attacking their reflections in the windows.
It started last autumn and has continued to this spring. I've sprayed 3 times, eliminating most of the contestents for a while, but they return. (Unfortunately they don't seem to be killing each other off.)
They are trying to nest under the siding. It's a trailer. I don't like pesticides, and I hate to kill pollinators -- these aren't pollinators, are they? I mean, don't they go out and kill catepillars & spiders & stuff, and put them in their nests for their young?
