We survive together, or not at all!

I use a weed burner attached to a 20# propane tank and dig the nest out of the ground with a pitchfork.  The flame from the the weed burner keeps them securely in the hole until I can get the fork under the nest.  Once it's exposed, there is a pleasing popping sound as the little devils explode due to the intense flame.  Controlled demolition at it's finest! evil

Another thing I have found is that our neighborhood skunks just love them.  Last year alone, they eliminated five underground nests in our back yard.  Of course, I don't know how your neighbors would feel about you importing skunks into your neighborhood! shocked

I also had a lot of those yellowjackets.  This year, it's WAR.  Some traps you build yourself can be found searching for "wasp traps".
Good Luck

What's a good bait for the yellow jackets that the honey bees absolutely will not be interrested in?

I had no HB coming to my trap of apple juice and water and a little apple cider.

Was it 1:1:1 ratio?  If not, what was the ratio of apple juice to water and cider?

i didn't worry with ratios, just some of this and that.  it was filled with jackets in 1 day.  put 3/4 cider and 1/4 water.  but don't measure it for goodness sake just eyeball it.  jackets don't care.

Gasoline may blow and burns way to fast,  sometimes it doesn't kill all the next in the ground.  I like to use diesel fuel or old engine oil.   Light it with Wd40 and it will burn for a long time.   The smoke is pretty heavy too.   Has worked on yellow jackest, bumble bee nests and the like.
