I saw few bumbles but no jackets. Plenty of bees though, they made short work of cleaning up. Cappings were dry this evening.

This time of the year, we see a lot of yellow jackets cleaning up with the bees.  I like to use a razor knife and cut go cutting.  The hornets will clean up the pieces of the yellow jackets.
