The random beer bottle drowned around 3 and the Mountain Drew, acid, sugar trapped all the rest. It did a very good job, but I think they just are drowning and not being poisoned? Whatever the case, the Sprite bottle did better then the Mountain Dew bottle.
Since the majority of the yellow jacket were drowned I decided to hang my Sterling Rescue Fly Trap with the solution (I have picture so you can follow along).
1) 1/2 cup sugar, 2) 1/4 cup boric acid, 3) 1/4 cup Mountain Dew (with backwash from garbage can), 4) stir until most of the lumps are gone, 5) install
The first arrow is the Yellow Jacket Trap and the second arrow it the Fly Trap. Just a side note: Greg said that the solution should be heated to combine the solution together. I just put it in the sun to heat and combine together.
(Boric Acid is an inactive ingredient in Visine.)
Well hopefully boric acid in yellow jacket’s mouths and eyes with kill them (or at least work better then the catch and release program). Greg recommended using boric acid, sugar and water. I used some sugar, boric acid and Mountain Dew. I thought since the yellow jackets love Mountain Dew that it would be a good substitute. I know what you are thinking: Where do I purchase boric acid? The answer is at CVS ($9.19 for 12oz.) or a pharmacy and ask the pharmacist because it is on the other side of the counter, but it is over the counter, if you know what I mean. The second picture is the amount of Mountain Dew and sugar I used. I just added about a tablespoon of boric acid.
The first picture shows Sterling Rescue Yellow Jacket Trap it trapped one yellow jacket, good job! So I decided to put the bottles in the garbage cans that were yellow jacket infested. It only took a minute before the first yellow jacket started to taste death (I hope).
The first 2 pictures are minutes after I installed the Mountain Dew mix. The last 2 pictures are when I left the car wash. The yellow jacket population really calmed down (not really sure if they died or they just where too full and sleeping). Some stupid yellow jackets drowned at the bottom of the bottles.
What, no pesticides! Is there a catch and release law or something? I installed this device with a piece of copper tubing I found on the ground and I hope this works. I am running out of Stainless Steel Polish.
The chemical hose needed to be shortened it was hardened and enlarged. This hose is for the presoak.
Yellow jackets were swarming around this garbage can. Today, I tried Zep Stainless Steel Polish. This worked pretty good also. The yellow jackets seem to fly away and die.
I got to purchase a new battery today which is great. I did not install the battery but he asked me if I wanted to do it.
My dome light burnt out on my Fit. It only took 4 months. I went to AutoZone for the DE3175 replacement light.
