    All this talk of killing. Has anyone actually taken the time to just sit down with the bees and talk? :shrug:

    There's a chemical in brake cleaner (forget the compound right now), same stuff used in dry cleaning. The stuff that the environmental guys have to get out of the ground when the dry cleaner store closes. Whatever it is, it'll kill yellowjacket nests right quick.

    Tetrachloroethylene, or something like that. Really messes up their exoskeletons.

    I think I ended up with 20 or so stings.

    Bee stories . . . not my favorite insect. I can't stand wasps, I kill every one I see.

    I've been stung multiple times a few different times when I was a kid. The yellow jackets swarming out of the low-lying green bean plants in my grandmother's garden was not fun. Stuck in my hair, clothes, gross!

    But the weirdest story was only a few years ago, my first summer in Texas. We lived in a condo in Boston, so it was great having a back yard. I went to do some yard work and brought a glass of soda outside. When I came back to the porch, I took a big gulp. . . . felt a sting on my tongue . . . spit the soda out and a bee comes out, too. . . . stinger was still in my tongue so I had to go to a mirror to pull it out.

    I had to put ice on my tongue and then some antibiotic cream. I was walking around with my tongue sticking out for a while to be sure there was no reaction. My husband thought it was so funny. I'm sure he made some crude remarks.

    I've had a couple of beers and three glasses of Bordeaux. I'm not going to over-think this. Dousing them and running. They're still buzzing around outside the hole. I have to wait until they're in.

    Underground nests tend to be bigger then you might expect..as a kid i fell into one that was about 5ft around and 2-3 ft deep got stung couple hundred times... Diesel in a garden sprayer and a BBQ lighter is the way to go
