It’s like a B-grade science fiction movie: Yellow jacket nests as large as Volkswagens.
Although I am fond of the saying, “There is no problem the proper application of high explosives can’t solve.”, I’m not convinced Ry has the correct approach with high explosives. I think some tests are in order to test that hypothesis.
Wow – I read through the entire article, and not one mention of global warming or rapid climatic change! Although it was getting dicey there for a moment with mention of a mild winter.
Not sure high explosives is the answer here. I’d think an incendiary device would be more the ticket.
I was thinking of combining the two as in one of my fireball reactive targets. The “paper” made by these insects should “go up” pretty well once it is torn up into tiny pieces by the explosion. The gasoline and “paper” should mix fairly well and then be nearly completely consumed in the fireball. Considering we feel the heat pretty intensely at 100 feet away being in the middle of it the yellow jackets should be incinerated. But we need to do the tests to make sure.
