YELLOW JACKETS BEWARE

I've been informed of several yellow jacket incidents in the past 2 weeks. Some people call them ground bees but the correct name is yellow jackets. They burrow in the ground and are vey aggressive. The attaché in numbers when mowers or weed eaters go over the nest. They can sting numerous times per insect. A product call SEVIN is a white powder available at Lowes and other places is pretty affective. Take a trowel full of the white powder at night when they aren't flying and poke down the hole. They will be gone the next day. Some people pour gasoline down the hole at night. Very dangerous.
