    About 4 - 5 weeks ago we started to see bees in our kitchen and we thought it was because we kept one of the sliding glass doors open to the back deck as the weather has been nice and it was convenient for the brothers to go in and out of the house.

    Wrong.

    I was out looking at the gutters because it's time to clean them and noticed what I thought were bees going in and out of a tiny entrance in the upper corner near the soffits.

    [​IMG]

    So, I figured I would kill them with Spectracide Wasp and Hornet Killer. My wife picks up 4 of them from the local hardware store and I was sure I was safe as it sends a stream about 20 feet so.

    Safe I was not and got stung by one of those guys... left a welt about 4 inches by 6 inches on my upper right side. Stung me right through my shirt too.

    So I searched for something that might actually work as we still had the occasional Yellow Jacket coming into the kitchen (I still can't find how they were coming in but it was not because the sliding glass door was open) and those guys were still building a nest inside the walls of our home as I could see them coming and going.

    I found this stuff called Tempo Dust and read a ton of positive reviews. I figured it had to be the real deal because even the most diligent blackhatter is not going to post thousands of positive real looking reviews.

    [​IMG]

    This is a real solid product but you had to administer it in the dark and you had to use this puppy to puff then dust into the crack so it would get into their nest area. You don't need much as I used about 3 or 4 ounces max in the process.

    [​IMG]

    I set my ladder up against the house in the early evening when they were inside and calm and then ran like a little girl to safety in case they felt the vibration and came out to see who was disturbing them.

    The following morning about 5 or so, I put on coveralls, a golf cap, safety glasses, gloves and wrapped my head in a beach towel and started the execution process. I did about 10 - 12 puffs with that device and jumped off the ladder (stupid move as I was up about 6 feet or so and am no spring chicken anymore) and ran into the house.

    Next day I saw this on the ground:

    [​IMG]

    The stuff worked fairly quickly right off and 2 days later I did the 5 AM thing again just in case. Yellow Jacket movement has been almost nonexistent with the exception of a few random ones in the back yard and those are smaller than the average size and I expect that they will be gone in a week or so.

    So, there you have your weekend instructional on how to eradicate yellow jackets.

    Does it work on wasps? We have seveal wasps nests on our house. Literally on our house. They come back every year. I have nothing against them - I love all things living and breathing. (Except politicians, cockroaches and flies. Depending on what we're talking about, these three are interchangable.) But I would like to not have to duck every time I leave my house for fear of getting stung.

    Works great on wasps... had these guys not been aggressive I would have done nothing as I'm not into eradicating living creatures.

    Just do the work in the dark and don't use a flashlight.

    haha nice.

    When I was a little kid I seen my cousin get stung by a bee and cry so bad that I've always feared getting stung myself. I've managed to avoid it so far.

    Are those really bees? THEY'RE HUGE. Kinda reminds me of the Japanese hornets.

    Best way to get rid of them is by setting your house on fire. Bees don't like smoke.

    Don't worry, it does not really hurt, just like getting a small burn. Unless you are allergicand end up dead or in a coma.

    You must check there and if they builded a comb you should remove and burn it, othervise it would attract others.

    Got stung by a big wasp when I was 10 or so. Hurt for 3 days. Now I avoid it by never going outside.

    Pfft, amateur.

    Here's how I did it when I had a nest in a bush near my pool

    Step 1. Locate the nest.
    Step 2. Gather some soccer balls.
    Step 3. Heat up the pool if it's too cold for you
    Step 4. Jump in
    Step 5. Go to the part of the pool that's closest to the nest, Fire a ball at it, go underwater andswim to the other side. They can't bite you underwater.
    Step 6. Just keep repeating it until their nest is too fucked up that they have to leave.

    Bonus: use a hose and spray water at it while your in the pool. It gets them real riled up

    Does this work with cats too. Cats don't like water.

    You feel the sting but it is only for a few seconds... you could handle it.

    They might be Japanese Hornets as some of them are pretty big. I know they are aggressive if you annoy them.

    I actually called my insurance man and asked if I was covered if I burned my home down to get rid of them. The line went dead as it sounded like he hung up on me.

    I was told not to flaunt the Mod PPMG Monkies so no castle for me.

    These are not honey bees; had they been we would have had to remove the wall and do that as well as try to relocate them as opposed to nuke them.

    You're soft.

    Buck up.

    I knew I should have sent you a PM to see how to handle it; I could have literally just jumped in the lake using your plan as opposed to the pool.

    Yeah, Florida wildlife.
