I will vouch for that. I grew up in the sticks. That means that the farmers who owned the huge fields across the street would spread horse, cow or pig
manure as fertilizer annually. I am not complaining about it. Pig dung is the most foul smelling among all. Just sayin. Anyway, we grew up around
creeks, lakes and deep woods. I probably have been bitten over 100 times in my life by Yellow Jackets. They also seem to have a larger brain than the
other bees as they seem to be able to think and they will chase you over 100 yards from their nest. Once they chased my dog and I into our garage.
Then they stopped and hovered outside of the garage for about 5 minutes while we were inside watching them. They seem to have enough intelligence such
that they were evaluating the situation to continue the attack or to pull back. They pulled back. Damage done as I was bitten over 15 times. Kelly
probably over twenty. Next stop was hospital for both of us. Later that night I went back to the ground nest with a gallon of gasoline. I poured it
into any hole I saw. Boom! No more bad bees.
