summer when the colonies are at the largest. Always look before taking a
drink is because the stinging pests will fly into drinks. Yellowjackets
hunt for sweet foods and drinks like juices, sodas and yes even adult
beverages. Keep all garbage cans and dumpsters covered tightly and away
from eating areas. Yellow Jackets buzz around in the garbage for scraps and
everything sweet. If swarming Yellow Jackets Stay attack stay calm as
possible. Only because flailing movement will cause the yellowjackets to
become even more aggressive. Crushing a yellow jacket is not advisable. The
Yellow Jackets give off an alarm pheromone that alerts others in the area
to attack. Keep children away from overgrown or wooded areas which are
prime nesting sites for yellow jackets. Do not use gasoline to try to
eliminate a yellowjacket nest. This is very dangerous and environmentally
unsound. Especially in the scorching heat here in the Puget Sound right
