    Yep, and that is from one end of the state to the other and across the state!! Holy smokes, what a mess. The red cross left Marathon today, now stationing in Big Pine Key. All but two neighborhoods in Marathon have drinkable water and power. That is huge. HUGE. The sewer working is even HUGER! lol. We get though it, just takes time. We are working 6 days, tree crew will be in Key West for a month at least. Only one piece of equipment is giving us a fit, the back hoe of things. Water went in through the exaust and some other problems I can't explain because I know nothing about back hoes other than they are working on it cause we need it!

    I have seen yellow jacket nests in houses, bales of hay/straw, and in a stack of bushel baskets. They were in my neighbors kitchen ceiling. It was starting to stain and sag. Looked like it might collapse. I drilled a hole and shot some Sevin dust up there. Someone else pulled it down and repaired it. I think their sting has more wallop than bees or wasps. I got stung 14 times in the back as a young kid. I made the mistake of jumping off a roof on to two stacked bales of straw. They chased me up the driveway stinging the snot out of me. Owweeee!!

    :lol: yep, could have been a classic set-up. He was very aware that his legs were at risk for some reason...survival instincts were running full tilt. At least he is paying attention to them.

    And you didn't get stung? I once unknowingly parked a running bucket truck on one of the biggest nests I've seen, left the door open and walked over to check out where I needed to set up. When I looked back, the truck was literally enveloped in a cloud of pain and torment.

    I use GoJo original formula. Go ahead and tell me how you don't like the smell as you rub peanut butter on your arms. I keep a can of GoJo on every truck and a big can in the shop for refilling them as needed.

    What do you guys "cut" pitch on your arms with? I sometimes use margarine and butter. But I think mayonnaise and peanut butter may work also.

    Maybe he does. I think he just sucks out the bulk of the nests occupants. He said the ones that do come back to the nest are somehow confused. They will disperse. Last time I used him, I found a yellow jacket nest with my mini, running full throttle. I was running fast. Machine was running fast, on top of the nest. I watered it down as best I could, and as many wasps as I could, directly, went in with two thick layers, with hose spraying to retrieve the mini. The BeeMan came out later that afternoon and sucked them up.
