Wonder how they removed it. That can be extremely dangerous.

Aren't all bees kept at bay if they're smoked in early morning, before they leave the nest?

That is the problem. Poor journalism. It was an yellow jacket nest yet it was also referred to as "bees."

Two completely different insects.

Two completely different behavior patterns.

Also here in my part of Georgia, Yellow Jacket nest are in the ground. Probably was referring to a hornet nest. The usual ones are grey paper looking material and they will build to fit the space.

Yes,,, Here in Arkansas Yellow Jackets also live in the ground... I can tell you from experience they don't like it when you are pounding metal fence posts into the ground... No buzzing around you,, they just hit you like a hammer !!!! Got stung 4 times before I could run... I found the two holes early the next morning.... Burned them... no more problems,,,, yet...

OK, so do yellow jackets, wasps and hornets also go dormant when presented with a smoke parade??

Only works good on honey bees that you want to be around. Yellow jackets I want dead, by whatever means. I like the spray cans that you can stand back 10 feet to spray. Like previous poster, the last one I found in the edge of our woods, I was stung several times before I realized I was standing next to their hole near an old stump.

Quite a difference between a bee sting and Yellow Jacket Sting. Yellow Jackets don't lose their stinger once they sting and can sting with it a few more times before leaving you. This doesn't take into account the living area of the yellow jacket. Where it lives it might have lots of contact with bacteria from ground or living in manure piles, so when the stings hit, it deposits bacteria which spreads infection to complicate stings. Talk about getting hit with double whammy....

The best thing to use on A yellow jacket nest is SEVEN 5% dust. After dark, put some around the entrance hole to the nest. after the next day, you will never see them again. GONE GONE GONE
