Now. I haven't done anything about killing them.
This is a yellow jacket.
This is NOT a yellow jacket but it looks like what I've got.
I don't want to kill all these bees that I don't think are hurting anything. They surely aren't hurting me and they've had plenty of chances to. I guess I need to call Extension Service Bill back and tell him AGAIN that I don't want to kill them. I think he's going entirely on the fact that I told him that they have nested in the ground. Unless the yellow jackets have hired some other kind of bees to do their work, I don't think there are any yellow jackets around. I haven't seen one in years and years. What would you do?
