    The only thing I spray is sugary water on swarms my sprayers are for honeybees and I want em alive. You may use whatever you like.
    I'd screw up and kill a swarm.

    Don't spray honey bees, just wasps, meat bees and bald face hornets.

    Good lord those bald face hornets are mean/tough little bastages. If I ever stumble across a hive I hope I have my running shoes on! I can't run like I used to, but damn it would certainly make a good Kodak moment.

    Any flea med that has 9-10% of Fipronil in it works best. Mix a tube in with a can of tuna but don't leave it where animals or kids can get to it. It's best if you place it into an old jar something like a pickle jar that has a 1'' holes popped into the lid, so the yellow jackets can get to it while animals and kids can not. Hanging the jars from patio covers or tree limbs works awesome.
    Meat bee's = DEAD!!!!:yes:yes:yes

    They eat meat bees so I usually tolerate em unless they're in a campground or around the house. But don't get stung by one, they knock you down.

    We have had them fly in while breaking down elk in Oregon, crawl over to a meat bee, attack him, bite his head off, and fly off with him.... those things are bad azz... Got hit once trying to set a tree stand up, things got some serious punch.....

    Dad had one hit him, he said it felt like someone shot him. He rolled on the ground for ten minutes, I laughed.
