How to get rid of, kill in-ground yellow jacket wasps for good using Delta Dust ANGRY WASPS


okay so I had a problem here we have Yellowjackets in the ground and this is in the yard of an 87 year old woman and she can’t mow or weed whack around her garden because of these little ground wasps which are Yellowjackets so I’m gonna do something different here I don’t normally use pesticides or insecticides anywhere on my own property but I had to do something definitive in this case and I did use pesticide here now it comes in a powder form this is the one-pound Delta dust and here’s the jar it is an insecticide but as insecticides go this is a very low-key Delta Mathurin point zero five percent now for those of you you’re curious about what that is that’s the same stuff that’s put on many dog and cat flea collars so it’s considered extremely safe for mammals extremely safe for people unsafe for things like these Yellowjackets now what I want to do here is because they activate when there’s vibration somebody walks by rides a mower by uses a weed whacker I wanted to get them boiling out here and I want to see really what the population is in the ground as it turns out this is a very large nest of Yellowjackets now for those of you don’t know Yellowjackets will come out in groups like this they’ll cling to your pant legs and they will steam you multiple times while they hold on and they stay in groups so Yellowjackets are very annoying and when it comes to very young people or pets or in this case an elderly woman they can be actually dangerous and I can put someone to shock so we’re dusting them up here with the Delta dust now throughout this test I used about 50% of this one-pound container I did not buy aspirator that some people use I recommend that you really don’t need that you can just cut the tip off of the bottle here and puff it right in and I found that it’s gonna give it a nice long even puff it carries quite a distance down this hole so I consider it to be probably the most effective for circumstances like this now something I do want you to notice this is not what I would call a knockdown pesticide so you’re not gonna go up to a nest of Hornets with this Delta dust and puff it and expect them to fall out of the sky and dial around you what they do do is fly out in every direction these wasps were flying a hundred feet or more as they came out of course they flew all over me I am wearing protective clothing and I also am wearing a respirator as a precaution even though the danger levels are extremely low when it comes to the risk to people so again Delta matheran is the active ingredient Delta dust is the product and what I’m showing you here is a condensed five-minute review of what actually took place over a twenty five minute time frame what I did notice is the wasps came flying out and they took off and flew to nearby trees they flew into grapevines they go in every direction so if you’re gonna walk out here without protection and puff a bunch of Delta dust into a hole you need to be prepared to get under cover somewhere you need to have some protective clothing they are going to come out now remember I did thump the ground and I agitated them a little bit if you just walked up and sprayed the dust in there I suppose the response would be much reduced but I like to get them active because I want those that are in deep shelter to come out and get through this dust and get it all over them and then I want them to carry that throughout the nest and what we’re finding is out of preservation they come out and fly away and don’t return now what was curious to the Scouts those foraging wasps that have been out are constantly returning they don’t seem affected by the dust at all and they bomb right into the hole and then ultimately they’re going to die so it’s a slow process now some people say just get a hose and get some soapy water and pour it in there well the way they construct these underground tunnel systems they’re at multi levels and if the ground is pretty absorbent which this is it’s a garden area the water that you pour in is going to miss their primary brood chambers which is what we really want to get with the desk so soap and water might be a temporary fix to knock him down it would not kill the nest unless you did it multiple times and of course covered and buried them until they died this way it works definitively their neurological systems here are going to be knocked out by this Delta matheran and as of this morning so we’re talking about 18 hours after I did this she does not see a single wasp going in or out of this hole so I would say that it worked extremely well so as a knockdown immediate killer it is not a success but as a definitive killer if you have overnight if you have plenty of time to work with it and you don’t mind that they are going to fly out while they’re covered in this powder it’s a very very effective and what I consider to be a very safe pesticide Delta dust so thanks for watching and I hope you benefitted. hope you benefited

Wasp Nests and Bee Hives

Wasp Nests and Bee Hives


[INTRO] It’s summer! And there you are, exploring
the great outdoors and suddenly you hear a buzz, see a flash of yellow and black
and–yeah! You’ve been stung! Was it a bee or wasp or a yellow jacket or hornet? If you didn’t get a good look at the tiny attacker,
you could always try following a home, You know, carefully. Because you can learn a lot about
certain kinds of stinging insects by looking at their nests. First up you should know that all wasps and bees belong to the Hymenoptera Order of insects. And bees actually evolved from wasps sometime
around a hundred and thirty million years ago. This probably happened when a solitary
female wasp somehow, maybe even accidentally, introduced pollen to her
personal nest while, bringing insect prey back for her larva. Pollen, is full of protein and could have
been a nutritious food source especially when prey insects were scarce. So,
scientists think that some wasps might have started actively collecting pollen
and eventually gave up hunting entirely. Trading their smooth, elongated bodies
with big mandibles, for bodies that were adapted to collect pollen and mouth
parts to slurp up nectar. In other words, they evolved into the first solitary
bees. Lots of differences we see between wasps and bees today reflect these food
choices. Whether they nest alone or are social types that live in colonies. Some
solitary female wasps just lay eggs in paralyzed pray, but others create a small
nest to store the bodies by reusing holes and wood made by other insects,
building it out of mud or digging it into the ground. Solitary bees bring back
pollen and nectar to a wood or dirt chamber. Sometimes lining their nests with
different materials depending on the species. For example, Mason Bees use mud,
Carpenter Bees use saw dust and Leaf- Cutter Bees, well, you get the picture. They use tiny leaf pieces. But what about the
colonies? Those big old nests you see in trees or on the corner your garage? Most
social wasps, which include Yellow Jackets and Hornets, are in the family
Vespidae, and make their nests out of paper. They come in different shapes and
sizes depending on what kind of wasp is building. If you’re looking at a big umbrella
shaped nest, tucked under the eaves of your house and you can see hexagonal
cells then, probably that’s a home to some Paper Wasps. If it’s a football-shaped
nest with smooth walls hanging from say, a tree
branch, you’re probably standing next to a colony of Hornets. If you see a stream
of wasps zipping into a hole in the ground or the walls of a building, you’re probably watching Yellow Jackets
duck into their hidden home. Each spring, a Queen wasp starts
constructing her new colony in her preferred location by gathering wood
pulp. Scraping her mandibles against things like tree branches, fence posts,
and even cardboard boxes. She mixes this pulp with saliva to make a fibery-goo
that dries into a solid, paper structure. She’ll then lay some eggs that will grow
into female workers, who will help expand and defend the nest. Most wasp
colonies tend to be pretty small. Some Paper Wasp nests have fewer than a
hundred individuals while, some Yellow Jacket nests hold up to a couple
thousand. And aside from the Queen these wasps may only live for a few weeks. So
especially in temperate areas their nests really only need to provide
shelter for a season’s worth of offspring before their abandoned and
left to degrade. Everyone dies, besides any fertilized Queens, and even they
abandon ship to find a safe place to hibernate for the cold winter before
starting the whole cycle over again. But social bees in the family Apidae, like
Bumble Bees and Honey Bees, they do things kind of different. Bumble Bees still have pretty small nests
holding up to a few hundred bees and they build them in all kinds of
protected places: abandoned rodent dens thick grass, sheds or in trees. Their
Queens operate on yearly cycles as well. Hibernating over the winter then
emerging in the spring to gather food. But bees lack the proper mouth parts to
make their hives out of paper so, instead they secrete a durable, waxy substance
from their abdomens to construct nectar pots and start a small colony. Honey Bees
on the other hand, carefully select the perfect hive location as a group.
Favoring protected areas like, inside the hollow of tree cavities, within walls or
in artificial beekeeper boxes. Honey Bee hives are sturdy. Constructed
out of organized hexagonal honeycomb cells that they used to store honey, pollen and raise larvae. Their colonies
are huge, supporting tens of thousands of members, who live up to a couple months.
And these hives are built to last through the winter since, these bees
store around 60 pounds of honey for food and huddle together for warmth. So we all
know bees are essential for their role in pollination and you might hate social
wasps for setting up camp in your garage but, they do help to
keep pests insect populations down and their homes are perfectly suited for
their lifestyles. Thanks for watching this episode of SciShow, which is brought

Bug-A-Salt 3.0 Black Fly Edition Best SALT to use Yellow Jacket Wasps  Challenged DO NOT DO THIS!

Bug-A-Salt 3.0 Black Fly Edition Best SALT to use Yellow Jacket Wasps Challenged DO NOT DO THIS!


okay so maybe you’ve seen my past video
showing this bug-a-salt 2.0 which was the hardest-hitting bug assault gun that
they’ve made and now you’re gonna see in this video that they’ve replaced it now
there’s nothing wrong with the 2.0 it’s a good one
that salt loader has worn out in the past but this is a 3.0 the black fly
Edition and this thing hits harder it focuses the salt closer and uses
less salt in the process this is the back of the package they have changed
the salt magazine a little bit the slide for cocking it has been changed it’s
textured they’ve got these warning signs all over it this is for adults only this
is not a toy you hand to your kids side by side we’re showing the 2.0 in
the foreground and 3.0 is the dark gray one there and look at the changes it’s a
little shorter has a different salt magazine the front sights are different
a little more accuracy and it might be a little more harder hitting we’re gonna
test all of that out close up of the salt magazine again look at the knurling
on that pump handle there also when you slide it forward and it’s loaded it
stays slid forward the 2.0 used to still slide even after it was cocked you can
also turn off the safety so let’s take some shots here on some aluminum foil
and see how that goes you can see on the left side the 2.0 broader pattern on the
right there nice focused shot from the 3.0 and here again the wide pattern and a
nice close shot here we’re also going to test the ammo here to see if the salt
that they provide is any different there are little different designs on the
muzzle there now we’re shooting it again on the left there it’s focused this is
a nice heavy-duty aluminum foil this is just to show you what it is in case
someone has questions about that and we were using Morton iodized salt for those
prior tests and now we’re gonna try out the bugga saw high-performance salt
which is made for the bug assault company specifically for their gun and
we’re gonna see if that hits harder bug-a-salt high-performance salt ammo you
can eat so here we go and this is the cover that you open pity the fly open
here I’m not going to be shooting flies with this you’re gonna want to watch
this video to the end to see what I do again this is made in the United States
and it’s for the Skell company so they had this salt put together just for them
it looks like it might have a little larger granules there and there’s
definitely less salt powder in it so the smaller bits of salt I think have been
eliminated so let’s test it out we loaded up the
magazine there we’re gonna close it take some shots at that same aluminum foil
and we’re shooting from about 18 inches away so here let’s take the third
approach that we get through it so it looks like it’s hitting a little harder
let’s shoot it from a foot out this is just a close-up of the damage that we
caused there it’s definitely hitting harder than the other salt go again so
with the first shot at roughly 12 inches it goes right
through the aluminum foil this side is definitely better so the bug assault 3.0
is more focused the salt that they make is harder hitting and I have a problem
out by my pond I had Yellowjackets sting my
three-year-old Grandson so I’m gonna pay them a visit DO NOT TRY THIS!!!!! you

THE Bugzooka how to collect bugs! Catch Wasps, Trap Yellow Jackets floor to ceiling

THE Bugzooka how to collect bugs! Catch Wasps, Trap Yellow Jackets floor to ceiling


ok so what we’re looking at today is
something called a bug-zooka it’s just a pneumatic bug collection devices like a
manual vacuum and has a little bellows on the end and it’s a great way to collect
bugs for kids obviously doesn’t have a battery it’s spring-loaded and you can go
outside or if you’re one of those people that doesn’t want to touch a bug this
inside your house this thing is probably the perfect tool
normal-sized person could extend it reach up and get that spider off the
ceiling or something out of the corners you get those flies out of the window
sill that type of thing this is the bellows end of it and it
takes a little bit of force to push it in and cock it i would guess that this
would be good for someone that’s seven years old and I think often they’re
gonna point is that a bug and that thing is going to trigger when they fire the
bells is going to pop out and hit him in the stomach or the chest straight away
takes a little getting used to I like to keep this thing short but it
does have a telescoping tube and these clear plastic ends are pretty cool all it does use suction that’s
created by the bellows to open these doors and the concept is simple and insects
through it someone else reported that those doors sometimes gets stuck open I’ve actuated this thing hundreds of
times and haven’t had that problem yet there’s a stainless steel screen inside
the pieces fit together and seem pretty airtight in their own then you
just put it on the tube that is the telescoping segment so the other thing is you can buy those
clear and pieces in packages of three so if you have a young bug collector that
goes out and wants to get a bunch of different insects they can collect a
stink bug someone said that they like stink bugs with it that’s all they use
it for collect different varieties of bugs and keep them in those containers
separately you can remove the end this is a bracket that mounts on the wall
that you can hang it on your door or something i don’t think i’ll be using
that but it comes with the adhesive already on the back so that’s ready to
go on your door for emergencies I think the design is really just using
in-house and collect bugs that have big wings. I wanted to test it
out on something probably more aerodynamic and therefore more difficult
to get with pneumatic device like this so i decided i would go out and try to
get some Yellow Jackets Yellow Jackets attack my honey bees and they’re always
at the grape jelly there at the feeder and these are some slow motion sequences
that show you kind of how bad it functions you have to be right on top of
the bug in order for this thing to work effectively these bugs are a little
lethargic because they’ve been cold and i’m showing you each sequence to show
that the section really isn’t that great at least for yellow jackets again if
you had a month or something with a larger wing larger surface area
something fuzzy it would suck in easily in fact i used it on mosquitoes and it
didn’t even damage the mosquitoes so it’s actually a pretty soft intake
process and again you have this clear tube so your ten-year-old can bring home
a bunch of Hornets or whatever and you decide what to do with them because when
you take it off as i’m showing here, you can make a decision on how to get rid of them
release them into the wild however you want to dispose of it if
it’s a stinging insect such as these i mentioned before are yellow jackets i
don’t recommend that you play around with yellow jackets but it’s something
that I just wanted to test it on I don’t particularly care for yellow jackets so
once again i think it’s okay you have to be right on top of the insect in order
suck them in effectively I don’t think it’s better than vacuum cleaner
which they advertise it’s stronger than a vacuum cleaner and I disagree with that
it’s actually a pretty light section and i’m gonna close this out with a
slow-motion view and a close-up of the Yellowjackets i collected by the way It
took me well over half an hour just to get this small collection of yellow
jackets and they are nice and safe inside if you want to dispose of an insect like a
yellow jacket or some other stinging insect that you want to get rid of you
can run these under the tap water that’s set to hot or you can put them in your
freezer and within 10 minutes they’re going to be done on the other hand if
your child or your bug collector comes in and has honey bees or something that
are obviously valuable to the environment then you just take the
tip-off outside and you release it back into nature so pretty unique thing no batteries easy to operate again takes
a little strength so if you get this to give this to a five-year-old or
something they’re probably going to be frustrated or they’re going to build
some muscle so thanks for watching and I hope this
review benefits you gonna catch that spider in the ceiling in your house in
the bathroom behind the toilet or whatever it’s got the reach for it have at it thanks for watching Enjoy!

Electonic Bug Zapper Review Elucto Raquet vs Bug-A-Salt 2.0

Electonic Bug Zapper Review Elucto Raquet vs Bug-A-Salt 2.0


okay so we’re late summer here and I’m having problems with wasps getting around my bird feeders and keeping the birds from accessing their feed particularly the Orioles they’re supposed to be drinking out of this cup right here which has grape jelly in it and you’ll notice there are a bunch of Yellowjackets around it so in this video we’re gonna compare two things that are designed to kill Yellowjackets these are my Yellow Jacket traps here and I’m testing different formulas out but that’s not what we’re gonna use we’re going to use the Bug-A-Salt 2.0 and we’re going to compare it to the Alucto electric flyswatter we’re gonna see which one is most effective here is the bug-a-salt 2.0 – if you haven’t seen my video about the Bug-A-Salt gun please check that out we go into great detail I’ve had three of these now I wear them out and this little salt opening here at the top tends to break off and wear out first but we’re gonna compare this I’m going to see what it kills besides flies we get a lot of questions will this thing kill wasps and Yellow Jackets also or is it just for flies well we’re gonna prove that out here are the Flies they’re dining on some sugar crystals here and we’re gonna blast them with a bug-a-salt 2.0 – after we do that we’re gonna test it out on Yellowjackets all the way up to point-blank range so yes apparently it does kill flies let’s see if it kills the Yellowjackets dramatic music builds tension the suspense is terrific killing yellow jacket wasps in slow motion The Bug-A-Salt 2.0 against hornets or wasps does not kill them with a single shot using yellow jackets for target practice don’t do this at home okay so I guess we proved pretty thoroughly that with the bug assault – which is the strongest bug assault gun the best you’re gonna do is damage the wings of some of those Yellowjackets but we’re definitely not going to kill them so what we’re looking at here is electric flyswatter this comes in two sizes this is the largest one Alecto makes and we bought it on Amazon and the link for it is down in the description below it comes with batteries and it’s ready to go we’re gonna go over the details it says it’s difficult to zap flies unless you have good skill for swing well practice your backhand a good hunter is waiting for it to land on a flat surface and you just need to cover it slowly you can do that with a bug in the wall for example fruit flies who cares about fruit flies we’re after bigger stuff today and there’s a warranty it comes with 1-year warranty apparently if you log in online you can get it to you your warranty for free so 100% money back I like what it says here in the features it says neatly and rapidly without causing irritation to the user you can kill things bugs will never be a minutes again so forget about bug bites and any bug attacking you and your family it will kill its normal condition if you hear a high-frequency sound because it provides a high voltage current keep how to reach your children I agree with that you touch this thing with your fingers and you’re gonna get zapped it feels like somebody poured hot water on you and pinched you at the same time pretty substantial so here it is it’s a one-piece thing nice and clean a little stronger than what they used to make this is carbon steel and of course the wires going across here are positive and negative alternating so when something touches both it gets zapped and the double-a batteries are more than enough for it and we’re gonna go outside and we’re gonna test that I’m just showing you the details here it is thin enough so that you can lay it right on the wall if you’ve got a spider or something and you want to kill it inside you can just lay it over the top of it hit the button and it’s going to zap it and at the very very least stun it so that it falls to the floor and you can clean it up and throw it away so it’s pretty well made I think better than some of the past units here’s the thumb button here the side of the handle while you have the button to press it will be electrified and ready to zap something and when you don’t have the buttom button to press it won’t be the double-a batteries going to put inside here they did come with some wear and tear on them but the charge was full so there’s also a little lanyard that goes in the bottom of the handle here and you can put that around your wrist so you don’t drop it push the button the indicator light comes on when this light comes on it’s ready to shock things don’t give us the kids they’re gonna chalk each other and here I am testing it out and snapping some Yellowjackets and it’s pretty clean it snaps and right down it’s a lot of fun actually I have to be honest picked one up here and it’s still alive it’s just stunned and you can see its mouth moving there so it doesn’t necessarily kill him but it definitely zaps um and drops him out of the air and you notice when it’s laying on the grid here it didn’t give a dramatic pop really but it did seize up you can see that he contracted right away and you see a little arcing and sparking there and so if you did this at night you’re gonna see little flashes of light obviously when you have mosquitoes or whatever you’re going to test out but one thing we’re proving here for sure it’s going to kill wasps so out here again and trying to take out a few more the problem I had was finding him after I hit him you zap them they go to the ground get a little back in there Owen everyone’s stuck right on the racket I’ll show you that up close and there it is and while it’s on the course there it is when you push the button you can see it seizes up and its stinger extends all the way out so be careful there too you can be stung by that wasp and I just laid it on the way the instructions say to see if it would zap something there here we have another Yellow Jacket right on the grid notice it’s touching at least two of those strands and there it seasons up not that dramatic but it certainly does kill them so there you go pick it up here again the stinger is fully extended if you touch your finger on a stinger even of a dead wasp as I mentioned before you can be in zapped look at those fingers extended on these two here they’re both dead and of course I found out that Yellowjackets are kind of decoys live Yellowjackets come to check them out and see what they’re eating and you can snap those two now does this electric racket zapper work better than traps not really but it’s a lot more fun this is a honeybee here on the clover don’t zap honeybees they’re different than wasps they are fuzzy and they’re busy pollinating flowers and they don’t come after you and they don’t chase off your birds the way Yellowjackets do so protect honeybees kill the Yellowjackets and of course here’s a fly there’s a saying that one fly walking across you is dirtier than a thousand cockroaches and you can believe it so go ahead and hit those flies with your bug assault – when it comes to Yellowjackets I recommend this electric racket go ahead and get one thanks for watching
