Destroying A Dangerous Yellow Jacket Nest With Dry Ice. Mousetrap Monday

Does Dry Ice work to destroy a dangerous Ground Yellow Jacket Nest? In this video we use CO2 to deal with an aggressive nest. Next time I am going to pour liquid nitrogen down the hole.

      Try that carbonhexafloride (?). The stuff that makes your voice so very deep. OTOH, we are talking about yellow jackets, so napalm, thermite, or even a small yield nuke may be a better choice.

    Great idea! However, I feel like if you had put something over the top of the entrance like a lid after you covered it with dry ice, less of the vapor would have escaped into the air, and would have funneled down into the hive a bit better. Idk, I'm not a pro, just a dreamer.

    best to do at night, then all wasps are home. Then I would put a pail over the dry ice to help keep the co2 going into the nest.

    Would the dry ice have been more effective if you had dropped some pieces on top of the entrance and then covered it with a bucket? It would have been similar to the jar as you would enclose the entrance and they would not have had access to fresh air, so would have died at a higher rate than they did.

      Yellow jackets are a type of wasp. Calling them yellow jackets is correct to identify. There are many species of wasps. They are sometimes confused with their relatives, the hornets, which are not a wasp at all.. All things considered, it is best to stay away from all types.

    I know it seem so interesting (I don't hate this video, I think it seem unique) also it's relateable why there are so many people hate bees but what's the use of this experiment? About a few weeks ago, I watched a video in Kurzgesagt In A Nutshell channel, the video was talking about how important is bee for Earth, including Albert Einstein's 'opinion' about bees. I think you guys should've to watch it too, if I'm not mistaken, the video's length is just a few minutes, but I promise it's less than 20 minutes. Anyway, it's just my 'comment'(or a "feedback" maybe?) about this video and sorry for my bad English grammar :( I'm not an Englishman. Tbh, I was a lil confused to use what word instead of "opinion" and "comment" so I gave them this ' ' sign.

    I've been killing these things for years. I've never been stung. When you find one, throw a rag near the entrance. They'll attack it while you leave. Come back at night and pour about 2 cups of gas. They're dormant at night inside their nest, so you kill the entire colony. It works every time.

    If you are going to use dry ice then put a bucket upside down over the dry ice and hole so all of the CO2 goes into the hole and no oxygen will dilute it. Then you need to leave it for 30 minutes to an hour so it will replace all of the oxygen.

    Should place a bucket (preferably clear) with 1-2kg of dry ice upside down over the entrance. Wait until the ice is totally sublimated. The idea is solid but you could see the wind removing the CO2 before it concentrated to lethal levels. The cold has the side effect of slowing the YJ’s metabolism making it take longer for them to suffocate.
