yellow jackets moving in on my bees
« on: November 27, 2014, 02:03:19 AM »
i recently noticed yellow jackets  going in and out of my hives . i did not notice any yellow jackets  til after i had started feeding some nucs and hives . i have been using top bottle feeders on nucs and board feeders on brood boxes . i thought after it got cold the yellow jackets would go home , but instead they are out and about when it warms up during the day. any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

I have heard that frontline would work, but my first thought is a robber screen frontline is not cheap...... You can slap one together yourself with min tools and min damage you your wallet....

Yeah, I know what Frontline products are, I use them on my dogs. What condused me was the "cat food" and "cage" part of the statement.

"yes cat food front line one to two drops and a small cage."
