Yellow jackets
« on: September 05, 2019, 09:48:45 am »
Last year I used onslaught and cat food for yellow jackets. That is what O.S.U. recomends. This year a friend across the river told me to use fipronil . It's the active ingredient in frontline dog flea medicine . So far I fed two cans of cat food in a cage, laced with 5 drops of fipronil and I have no yellow jackets for the first time ever. I usually loose at least three hives every year to yellow jackets so you can bet I've tried every kind of trap out there. 
I don't know.It was like that when I got here.

Where do you buy the fipronil?

Amazon, it's the active ingredient in front line tick and flea med. for dogs. I bought the generic brand for $16.
