I have two hives in my backyard in Bountiful, Utah. I have a constant stream of yellow jackets coming to my hives and attacking my bees. Generally it is a one on one fight and the yellow jacket will take off the back abdomen portion of the bee back to its hive.
I have two yellow jacket / wasp traps by the hives, but the catch is minimal. I can kill twice as many per day just sitting in front of them with a fly swatter. I've killed over 25 a day for several days in a row now. Any suggestions? Should I even be worrying about this?
Thanks for the input!
