There is a yellow jacket nest at the rear of my back yard. I was walking around there earlier today trying to find the opening of the nest. It was about 20 feet away from me when I spotted it. I saw the little bastards flying in and out. I hear a buzz by my ear and out of instinct, I ran back to my house. I wasn't that close to the nest, but one got me anyway. On my forearm. I didn't even feel him on me or the sting. I did look over myself to make sure one wasn't hitching a ride before I went inside. After I got inside, I noticed my arm felt like a syringe was stinking in it. I looked down and sure enough, a little blood was coming out. I'm guessing my dog stirred them up.

Here it is 8 hours later and it's still sore.

Now that I have identified the enemy's base of operation, there will be a night time bombing to eradicate them.

Use the road flare trick.

Yellowjackets suck.

Nuke the whole site from orbit, its the only way to be sure.

Fill a one gallon garden chemical sprayer (using a creosote or fence paint nozzle is best) with Kerosene, … add a source of ignition, stick with burning rag… FUNTIME!!!!

Like to fish?

1 Make sure they only have 1 hole, big nest have 2+
2 wait until night
3 take a roadflare light and stuff fire end down into hole
4 allow to burn for 15 min
5 dig up with small shovel
6 use gloved hands to brush them off nest, put the nest parts in a paper bag
7 allow bag to sit open away from the nest for approx 12 hours
8 Use nest as fish bait, yellow jackets will leave



Or build a flame thrower you know you want one

No, I don't fish. I also can't burn anything as there is a burn ban in effect since hurricane Ivan. I will probably use poison. I just want to get rid of them, not burn up my back yard.

Hurricanes too. Since there was so much debris after the storm, a ban went into effect. I guess county officials don't want everyone burning all at the same time. FEMA was supposed to come around and collect all the debris, but still hasn't shown up yet. After Frederick went through in 1979, it took FEMA months before they came and picked up debris. That's why I paid and had my crap removed. I will be the only one with grass in their front yard. Everyone else has their trash piled up by the road right now killing their lawn.

Speaking of flamethrowers, did you see that video of the kid that build his own flamethrower? I think he even posted on the net how he built it. Amazing!
