Sue from Lilburn, Ga writes,
How do I safely wash the Alpine Yellow Jacket measuring spoon and mixing container? Dispose of old meat?
After I have prepared the baits, can I wash the measuring spoon and mixing container in the kitchen sink? If not, how do I safely wash and store them for the next use? Also, how do I safely dispose of poison meat left in the bait stations after it is no longer attracting yellow jackets?
You should only use disposable spoons and containers to mix the product with meat. Any measuring spoon used should be clearly labeled for insecticide use only and should be rinsed off outside and placed in a zip top bag for future use. Old meat can be placed in a plastic bag and tossed in the trash.
