    After he waterboarded them for an hour i heard they are willing to negotiate.

    My latest solution for a yellow jacket nest next to a rotting tree stump was 4 gallons of malathion mix poured down the 2 holes in 2, 2 gallon applications.

    I found the 2nd hole the hard way when I got stung pouring the malathian in the 1st hole. This was after dark using s head lamp, and yes, they can find you in the dark after you’ve been tagged once already. I had to go in and shower to get the pheromones off me in order to go back out and do the 2nd application.

    All of this was after pouring gasoline down the whole earlier in the day. There was still much activity after dark. I thought it was from the 1st hole until I found the 2nd hole and got stung.

    Very good idea using soap & water…we had ground wasps nesting under the corner of a raised bed…it took 3 seasons to finally evict that mess. Now, it, & beds nearby, are suffering some sort of root fungus…probly gifted to our berry bush, lilacs, & other plants that stuff, as the bushes all near there, have slowly been dying….so, I felt no guilt killing that nest…
    …ground wasps are aggressive towards mammals, swarming at them from as much as 20’ away. IF they were pollinating, there’d have been more fruits. IF those had been eating pest bugs, I shouldn’t have been able to find pest bugs anywhere in the whole front yard, due to the numbers of those mean things.
    So…they didn’t pollinate, nor eat problem bugs…they chased & bit people, dogs, cats, & helped try to kill my plantings. I see no benefit to encouraging them, nor “live & let live”, either.

  4. B-Rad Umuck on November 6, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    Ive been useing boiling water to kill off fire ants seems to work pritty good

  5. Van Ferrell on November 6, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    Poor honey around the hole raccoons and skunks will destroy the nest trying to get more honey let them get stung

  6. jolllyroger1 on November 6, 2021 at 7:40 pm

    Black powder pour in hole cover and light….. burns hot add sugar to the powder to make more smoke and they will suffocate.
    The dawn will drown them and phosphates will act as fertilizer
    Black powder is more fun… another way is make rocket candy using extra sugar the heat and smoke devastate them instantly

  7. Dale Shoshanah Kirkland on November 6, 2021 at 7:41 pm

    Hot water is best as it causes a vapor from the dawn..that’s the way I get rid of ants

  8. Rebecca W. on November 6, 2021 at 7:42 pm

    He did a very smart thing.. I was attacked by a whole nest of them when my horse’s hind hoof slid over their nest in the ground. They dive bombed me like the Luftwaffe in their Messerschmitts. Whole bees were stuck into me, stinger first, and dead. I ran into and waded across a river and was still being attacked on the other side. It was terrifying, especially when my throat closed up with some kind of vapor. My hair was long and caught a lot of them, they got inside my tee shirt and I counted 70 stings from the waist up, do not know how many were in my scalp and none got into my Levi’s jeans.

  9. Justinian Pescador on November 6, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    Do you have any tricks hacks for mosquitoes besides building a bathouse

  10. Gail Jezik on November 6, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    Good idea but what would you do if the nest is hanging from a tree over a sidewalk where kids walk under to go to school. I had one very big one sprayed it with Ortho wasp foam for two nights and on the third day put a garbage can under it and took a tree cutter and cut it down.

  11. Roger Martin on November 6, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    Use a leaf blower in reverse to cut up leaves and set it in front of the whole it will chop the bees up in the skunk was smell that then dig the hole up and dig out the nest I promise it works

  12. Mike Polk on November 6, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    Wow! What a great video, thank u sir for that wonderful presentation., Also u may want to try setting up a Shop Vac with about a gallon of water inside mixed with about 2 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid & place the opening of the Vacuum hose right above the hole in the ground where the nest is located. (You can actually do this about a half an hour before dark without getting stung.) Just position the hose by pushing it in place from about 4 to 5 feet back from the end of the Vac. hose/nest. The vibration of the shop Vac. stirs the yellow jackets up in their nest & as they begin to come out of the ground the Vacuum pulls each one inside & "No More Yellow Jackets". If the Vac. hose should miss one or two Yellow Jackets (no worries) it will definitely get them trying to return to the nest. I leave the Vacuum running for about 15 – 20 minutes. Turn the Vac. Off & push a cpl of paper towels in the end of the vac. hose (so u have no escapees) & leave the yellow jackets inside the Vac. over night & the following day just pour them out along with the soapy water on the edge of a wood line near your home.
    This also works removing Wasps from a hanging nest. U can literally just walk right up to the nest holding the Vacuum hose with ur bare hands. As the Vacuum hose nears the nest the Wasps can feel the suctioning from the Vac. hose so they try to latch on to their nest. U are able to remove all the Wasps this way… (Usually in 30 seconds to 1 minute) I’ve never lost any Wasps that were trying to get away with this method nor have I ever been stung. Don’t forget the water & dish liquid in the Vacuum. (About a gallon of water to a cpl of ounces of Dawn Dishwashing Liquid). Hopefully this will also be helpful to someone reading these comments & they can rid their property of these painful little stinging pest; Please Be careful & don’t lose focus while completing this task. Blessings to all, Mike

  13. Dave Kieffer on November 6, 2021 at 7:47 pm

    I use starter fluid (spray ether for you folks in warm areas). A good shot in the hole puts em all to sleep forever and it doesn’t leave any residue, as it evaporates.

  14. Floyd Holder on November 6, 2021 at 7:50 pm

    When dealing with yellowjackets, there is no overkill!!!!!

  15. BobbyD on November 6, 2021 at 7:50 pm

    KILL ‘EM ALL!!!

  16. Jugaloking69 Dope on November 6, 2021 at 7:50 pm

    ya mess with my women willya lol. overkill is like having to much horsepower Never

  17. JANE NORELL on November 6, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    Dawn could cure a rainy day!!!

  18. primera calidad on November 6, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    Maybe you should have called aoc. She could have sent some councilors to talk to the bees.

  19. Sally on November 6, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    I watched a video quite a while ago (I don’t remember the channel sorry 😬) that showed a homemade wasp/hornet poison that is bee safe!! The thing was mixing the right amount of sugar to water where the wasps/hornets wanted it but bees don’t (of course I don’t remember the ratio, so look that up if you want to try it) and then putting in a tiny amount of borax (or something like that, again, look it up if you want to try it). So you put the mixture in a soda can and put a stick in the can so the wasps can drink it and then go back to their colony and share it. That way, you get the whole nest and the queen and they don’t come back in the spring the following year.

  20. Dustin Umholtz on November 6, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    My 5 year old daughter was playing outside today and poked a stick into a hole in the ground next to the ditch between our house and our neighbor’s house. Non of us knew that it was a yellowjacket nest. She got stung 9 times. She’s fine now, but once it got dark, when went out and burned them out, dug them out and killed everything. She came over to watch and it made her very happy.

  21. Willa Johnson on November 6, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    Had a colony of them in my yard. They would come after you if you got near.
    So I waited until dark, took a large cloth screen from old tent and threw it over the hole and poured a can of GAS down the hole and took off, Must have been a thousand stuck in the screen ,DEAD
    Sealed it up and looked for their back entrance. GONE for years.

  22. eudaenomic on November 6, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    Always keep benadryl in your medicine cabinet.
    I would use wood ash and water. Wood ash is a fine powder suffocates insects. But a propane insect fogger is faster.

  23. Leikili Maile on November 6, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    Wow I didn’t know they’d go that low

  24. Cleveland explorer on November 6, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    Yo, why were you out in your boxers buddy? I think I heard it was raining, the way you ran you didn’t seem comfortable (many don’t like it, I do but subjectively). I hope you were ok! Lol. And your wife, yellow jackets are apparently one of the worst common wasp-like creatures. Are they a symbiote to trees somehow?

  25. Jamie on November 6, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    I’ve killed 5 to 7 nest this summer and I can’t see how gas harms the environment any more than burning it in a vehicle because you’re burning it all up .

  26. R on November 6, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    I find education the best way to change behaviours. Before murdering them all you should have sent them a letter explaining how their actions affected you. In that letter you could have arranged to host a meeting with them all to discuss a way forward. I understand they are a different species to the UK Native bumble bee but a few years ago my dog got stung by a bee and it really upset her. So I wrote a letter to the queen bee demanding a talk. We had the meeting the following day and to be fair there was a huge attendance. Anyway to cut a long story short it’s all sorted. The bee who stung the dog apologised and both me, the dog and the bees have got on well ever since. I’m even the godfather to a few of the baby bees. My wife and I have been invited to a wedding between two of the bees next month also. And some of the bees even help me out around the house and watch the kids so I can have a date night. A 500ml bottle of Dawn liquid and hose isn’t always the answer.

  27. V8Marc on November 6, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    I’ll try it on ants

  28. Tim Runkle on November 6, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    In the future, all that is necessary is an old rag dabbed with gasoline, and simply shove it in the hole (at night, of course) and place a rock or brick over the hole. The FUMES from the gasoline-wet rag actually kill them effectively and completely in 1 night. I know this because i got lit up with yellow jacket stings in my perennial flower bed, after sitting down on my historic border wall, right next to an in- ground nest. I was so fucking pissed off, I almost used gasoline, however, by using the cloth method, the actual fumes kill them without contaminating the soil .

  29. Patrica thomas on November 6, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    I use it too, kills everything

  30. Twila Gullatt on November 6, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    Thank you for sharing this video with me. I hope that it don’t have a hornet. If I do I’ll share your technique with the person that comes to erratic the problem.

  31. Lyn Brown on November 6, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    Didn’t no, thank you for sharing. Does it work on any hills in the soil?

  32. Patrick on November 6, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    They often nest up under a root system. Same thing in my yard this year. I was concerned about using anything that would harm my young tree, so I employed my pop’s age old technique and put a shop vac hose at the entrance for a couple of afternoons. Thump thump thump go the bees into the shop vac. A few days later I opened the shop vac – had hundreds if not thousands of ’em in there. All dead. Nest has been completely inactive since and my tree wasn’t harmed by any poisons etc. Enjoyed watching this. The screen is a great idea. Cheers!

  33. Kenneth frierson on November 6, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Those stings hurt lol

  34. Muleskinner on November 6, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    For some reason the yellow jackets were everywhere this year , i burned-out a nest of them next to my bee hives here in Mo. they get in fights with my honeybees

  35. Siwy Wabbit on November 6, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Yellow jackets are carnivorous. You can put a rotisery chicken karkas in a 5-gallon bucket with a funnel made of window screen, small hole inside the bucket pointing down into it. Place the bucket near the hive. Bees fly in seeking to eat flesh, but can’t find the same hole to fly out and are trapped. Squirt some liquid dish soap on the screen and fill the bucket with water. They all suffocate / drown.

  36. The Fashion Goddess Channel on November 6, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Diatomaceous earth.
    Or, if you want them, buy queen bee ferone and a box, get them to jump in the box, tape it up, sell it for money, or, move hive to safer place and farm your own bees. You can live on honey.
    Yellow jackets are hornets, not bees, they don’t make honey.
    Dawn, will run off into your pond in the next rain, and in snow thaw out, and then kill every fish you have for the next 20 years. It doesn’t disipate like you think; not for fish, anyway.

  37. Anima Sola on November 6, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    @ Homesteading Off The Grid. I know this is late. Recently saw a beekeeper give a tip on how he gets rid of yellow jackets from invading his honeybee apiary. Dish with water and apple cider vinegar and just a tad of dawn dish soap to cut the tension. Yellow Jackets are attracted to the ACV fall in and drown. Will find the video and add it when I find it. Sorry about your family getting stung. I’m allergic too. P.S. Skunks love to eat them too. Dead or alive.

  38. Frank Davidson on November 6, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    f you find a yellow jacket hole mark it so you can find it at night while they are all in the nest never attack one in day light halve will be out of the nest go out at dark pour 1/2 cup Gas into the hole not one will escape they are not very deep so dig it up and dispose

  39. Rick _H. on November 6, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    I’m in Vermont and the Bumblebee was placed on our endangered list. I saw one Bumblebee all summer. It was last week and it had been quite cold that night so it was barely moving. I wanted to help the poor thing but didn’t know how. Don’t harm any Bumblebee’s if you see them.

  40. Camper Bill on November 6, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    Wait ’till night, get about 1/2 cup of gasoline and pour it in the entrance, put a rock or brick at the entrance to block and you’re done. Don’t set fire to it as just the gas fumes in a short time will kill the entire wasp nest.

  41. Sean berthiaume on November 6, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    Should have used a nozzle high spray.

  42. Jim Hovater on November 6, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    About 20 years ago I mowed over a yellow jacket nest. Several of them hit me. I waited until dusk and then poured about a pound of smokeless powder (I reloaded at the time) down the entrance to the nest. I then poured a ‘fuse’ about 20 feet long, lit it and RAN! The ground bucked up about a foot and smoked poured from the entrance. No more yellow jackets. 😁

  43. Mary Meyerhofer on November 6, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    They Usually have a back door we had one I’ve had a few and they all head back doors

  44. beboboy mann on November 6, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Screw washing the bees! I’ve always poured gas down the hole and the gas fumes get them immediately. I always light the gas quickly so it doesn’t soak deep into the ground. I do the same thing on hanging wasp nests…..I put some gas in an empty windex bottle and squirt the nest. They fall to the ground dead….no movement. People spill gas while filling their yard equipment. The environment in your yard will recover using gas to immediately kill dangerous bees.

  45. acarleneamil on November 6, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    I hope you have honey bees because the fruit trees will need pollination when they bloom

  46. John Logan on November 6, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Boric acid would that work?

  47. Emily Hofland on November 6, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    I try hard not to kill any pollinators in my yard. But I have also, not been attacked by any of them, so…

  48. Justin Venter on November 6, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Beautiful home

  49. Norby E Norris on November 6, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Great! I used the good ol’ gasoline method for years. Worked great@

  50. The Bourbon Scene on November 6, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Just another tip yall. I always use a bungee cord around my lawn mower handle so if I have to let go due to bees, the bees will attack the lawn mower instead of me. Trick my grandfather showed me years ago and it works because I have had it happen a couple of times before. I’m guessing it’s the vibration. It gives me enough time to show just how fast I can run when startled haha
