Bees... (CORRECTION) Yellow Jackets have taken over the wood supply for my pizza oven. The wood is stored directly under the oven opening which makes it risky to use the oven. I'm interested in what my options are for removing them. Do I need to have an expert come remove them or is there some natural substance I can place near the hive that will encourage them to leave?

There are some bee removal contacts in the middle of this Newsletter:

You should give them a call.

Ok, I was hasty in my identification. I do not have bees in my wood pile but rather Yellow Jackets. Suggestions for organic removal?

I have a nest of yellow jackets in a large Pampas grass plant. Yes they are aggresive and yes thier sting is a discomfort. Is the orange oil treatment the best available organis solution. I may not be able to soak the entire nest due to it being mostly in the plant. Just mowing close to the nest causes them to attack.
