    Incredible numbers of Yellow Jackets here in Eastern Oregon this year. Not too bad at my house but a "bummer crop" for sure....lots of people getting stung and you take your life in your hands having a picnic or even a beverage outside in some locations.

    This worked!
    Thanks for this simple idea. We had a minor "hatch" going on in our kitchen. It started from a bowl of fruit we had on the counter. The fruit flies were driving me nuts, so I tried this cure, and it worked like a charm - thanks!

    Cutting the top 1/3 off of a plastic soda bottle works for fruit flies, too. put vinegar & detergent in the bottom, invert the top of the bottle like a funnel into the base, and trap away.

    That's a lot of jackets.

    Honey bees aren't attracted to that bait.

    I had to take out a nest in my wood pile this summer. I donned waders, leather jacket and gloves and a head net, dismantled the wood pile and took care of it at the source. Not much fun.
