Diane from West Springfield, Ma writes,

How should I get rid of an underground nest of yellow jackets that live under my deck?

I see yellow jackets coming and going in a three foot area from between one deck board, in my backyard, all day long. I ordered Tempo 1% dust and the bellows hand duster. Should I just pump the dust along the crack between that deck board where they enter and exit, or do I have to remove the board and find the nest? I greatly appreciate your assistance. Your product should be here in a couple of days.


You can initially try just to apply the Tempo 1% dust between the cracks and see if it takes care of the problem. If the nest is larger or further away from the crack then you could be required to remove the board to directly treat the area.
