Stories of yellow jackets are becoming more and more plentiful this time of year. The recent discovery of this Natural Yellow Jacket Killer came about like a lot of great inventions, it was an accident.

I fed the chickens some leftover bone broth. They ate the broth for a few minutes but then moved along to other delicacies in the yard.

The broth pot remained in the yard hoping the chickens would come back to fill their tummies but what happened was something very unexpected. Each time I checked the pot was more and more loaded P1080567with yellow jackets! They landed in the broth and drank, filled their tummies, swam in circles like they were stuck and sank. Click here to for traditional yellow jacket traps.

The bottom of the pot was solid yellow jackets.

I left the pot all night and found the surface empty of striped culprits the next morning, every one of them was resting on the bottom of the pot. In the middle of the second day the pot was loaded again with yellow jackets on the surface. We do NOT have a yellow jacket problem in any way. 


It’s my understanding that every bug and insect has it’s position so I removed the pot. When we dumped the pot there were over 60 dead yellow jackets in just 24 hours time.

If you know someone with a yellow jacket problem please share this post. It may help!

    This is the time of the year that Yellow Jackets are searching out protein. Mix a few torn chunks of shaved ham or diced raw chicken livers, a splash of peace brandy and you will catch many more. I am a hobby beekeeper and fall is the time to watch over the weaker hives. I set the bait out far away from the hives and it is very successful. The honey bees are not interested in the bait.
