....yellow jackets. And we've been hit hard on our neighborhood. I hear it's the same way just about everywhere else in the Bay Area. This is how our trap looked around 9a, after I set it the night before. There's no love lost between yellow jackets and me. When our youngest son was about 7, he and his friend accidentally stepped on a subterranean nest in our backyard. They were instantly swarmed. Thank goodness our neighbor was close by, and was able to hose the boys down. When we got our son up to the house, I stopped counting the stings at 20. Good thing he's not allergic.
