Well every last one of them plus a few thousand they picked up along the way are now here. I'll try and send them to someone else.

RE: Yellow Jackets

Haven't seen many this year...dryer weather will help them allot,.. but I'm not prying for rain right now. Hopefully you have no nest near you.

RE: Yellow Jackets

Beegood ~ I suggest you post a help wanted on the pests forum. I can't remember how I did the wasp trap thing 2 summers ago but I think it involved a banana peel and beer or something. It at least cut down on the amount of them.

RE: Yellow Jackets

Ooh. That sounds interesting.

Please let us know the "recipe" if you get one.

RE: Yellow Jackets))

This is the basic recipe for that trap only I have heard it made it made with beer instead of sugar water. I think you can also use any sweet pop.
