Last night Woody got online to find out how to trap and kill yellow jackets in an environmentally safe way and here is the link to the website that he found:
He got up early as usual and headed to work, he walked at lunch, worked some more, stopped on the way home to find a cheap piece of fish for the trap and then set to work on the trap. I found the tub for him last night that he is using...and the rest of the items needed he found on his own. When I got home from working at the church library, he sent me out to take pictures of his yellow jacket trap. And, as you can see, it is attracting yellow jackets. Two had met their demise when I took the picture and Woody just went to check and now there are six floating in the water in the tub...hey, slowly but surely we are ridding ourselves of at least some of the yellow jacket population in our area! Woody has also mowed this afternoon...so we aren't going for a walk this evening.
I appreciate Betty for commenting on last night's blog. The answer is: a blue heron.
