I have small yellow jacket bees in the dirt of my landscaping (deep). I was digging weeds out of my landscaping and these little yellow jacket bees were crawling out of the dirt!! What can I do?? Is there something I can use to kill them??? I'm in a wheelchair and have to sit on the dirt while gardening and I'm alergic to them, so this is a Huge Problem!!!
about 5:30 this afternoon my wife was digging up a plant trying to grow by a large pine tree. She did not see
all the yellow jackets outside the hole opening. She was stung seven times. We put a baking soda paste on each bite
and put a bandaid on each. Very little swelling. I went out after dark (they will not fly after dark) and poured
clorox down the hole. Gas will kill instantly but is very volatile. After about a minnute, I dug up the nest.
Found three queens. I will post pitchures tomorrow. Hope this helps in time.
