    Angry Feeding the yellow jackets

    Yesterday the honeybees were throwing out young larvae from the hive. Hopefully, they were throwing out drone brood. The yellow jackets were sitting around on the ground waiting for it. Some would even fly up and take the larvae away from the bees before they dropped it. I did see one or two try to get into the hive but they were immediately ran out.
    I eat my peas with honey. Ive done it all my life. It makes the peas taste funny. But it keeps them on the knife!

    There may not be much that you can do about YJ at this point in the season, but this thread offers useful Spring advice:
