    Re: Post Race!

    In France, for Asian yellow jacket, I have seen (we had one nest at work) a professional use a kind of powder he sprayed at the entrance of the nest so every beast going out is touched by the powder and die in a few minutes.After they use the same powder with water to destroy the nest, the powder stay active for a while so the beast that are outside and come back after the destruction are contaminated also and will die. As you said , they are in full protection suit.

    Perhaps it was for the video, but they guy didn't just plant the hose over the entrance to the nest, but put it right beside the entrance, and occasionally beat on the ground to keep them coming out until all the flying ones were gone. He then removed the nest, showing the non-flying cohort that had other jobs in the nest.

    However, I should also note that he had the full bee suit.

    I don't want to use any gasoline or harsh chemicals that might hurt the cherry tree. We're supposed to get 1-2 inches of heavy rain tomorrow so I might use the garden hose to try and drown the nest. A friend suggested putting screen wire over the entrance to prevent them from escaping and maybe I'll add some dish soap as well.

    Oh man, I just saw one of those at the last local gun show I went to. Not 3 barrels, but it was still cool looking.

    Re: Post Race!

    We always get a professional to come and take care of the nest. They usually put in a harmless mold that is not so harmless to the nasty stinging bugs! In our area it's usually around $100 for that visit.

    I have some mold that I can give you. It's not particularly harmless though.

    Besides, I wasn't trying to break the mold.
