    There is always an alternative.

    Dish soap and water kills yellow jackets with less damage to the rest of the environment.

    How in the world does a post from 2006 get resurrected? I can understand if you were searching a topic and wanted to bring it back to ask a question or update it. But how does it happen that it gets resurrected by someone who just continues the thread with some random comment? Not being critical, I just neeeeeed to know how in the world it happens! J

    New pesticide laws require that products toxic to bees carry that warning. It is not that they are especially toxic to bees over other insects.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
