Have a bee's nest in the ground right next to entry steps. Shot a bunch of Bee killer spray the other night, didn't seem to phase them. The nest is probably way below ground were the spray can't get to.

How do you get rid of the little buggers?

Sorry about the useless picture but they get seriously pissed off if I get to close.

Whoops no pic.

There is a powder that you can get from most garden centers and maybe at the Depot. You squirt it into hole and they get covered in it going in and out. Works well

Just finished draining the can when they figured out where it was coming from. I can't remember the last time I ran so fast. Dropped the can somewhere in the road while I was swatting at them. Got four stings out of the deal, wife's finding the cream as we speak. Them suckers are mean!

Believe me, this is one of the times, you can only get a decent pic....after the war is fought ....unless they get your dead, stung, pained body, after the fact :no:
That will work if that is all there is...:laughing:

You must not be using the good spray, the stuff I use will drop them in the air, as long as I don't get sissy on them and turn tail and run.
I have been stung by plenty of bees/yellow jackets/wasps/hornets. But never while in the act of killing them.
