Yellowjackets – Nesting
Q: Every year I have a nest of yellowjackets in my yard. Last Sunday I found the newest nest (i.e. I got stung three times).Is there anything I can do so that yellowjackets will not be attracted to my yard?
A: I myself discovered a nest last week but only suffered two stings. The entrance was in a shaded pine island I was walking across. Nothing can be done to repel yellowjackets. It’s just a matter of being very observant in places where they might make a nest. I have information about their habits plus several trap designs at http://www.walterreeves.com/insects-and-animals/yellowjackets-control/.
