Honeydew Gel for Hornets?
The past few years, we've had terrible issues with what I believe are European Hornets. They attack our butterflies, and kill them. They don't carry them off. They simply sting them to death and then fly off and leave them there... They are also stripping the bark from my Seven Sons of Yang, and it's starting to girdle the trunk. This past summer, I wrapped burlap around the trunk - and it helped... but I can't burlap the whole tree!
We live on 6.5 wooded acres... I've tried to find where the hornets live - but I've been unsuccessful.
Having received the gift of a sting last summer - I am more determined than ever to get rid of them!
I've just read about honeydew gel. The Website follows:
Does anyone have experience with this stuff? (Did it work? Is it safe for birds, and beneficial insects? Other issues that came up? Any other comments/concerns...)
Thanks so much...
