I have given up using pesticides in my yard and am getting used to the ants and mosquitoes. However, now it seems that yellow jackets have made a nest in an exterior wall of my home. I hate to think I have to wait until Winter for them to die as they have already stung my wife and my dogs. My house is an old wooden mill house so there are lots of gaps everywhere and now the nasties have found their way inside too. Any suggestions as to how to kill them? Would a bee suit offer enough protection if I were to drill a hole in the wall to get at the nest? If I have to, I guess I'll hire an exterminator and tell him to stay away from my hives.
