    Yesterday, for about the 20th time this year, I responded to a call about "Honey bees" in a wall. I even had them on the web and had them pull up pictures of yellow jackets and honey bees.....and they swore they were honey bees.

    So I was excited to grab the new "iddee swarm box" and head out to the location. And we all know how this story ends up......YELLOW JACKETS!

    So I gave good advice, told them what to do, and collected a 25 dollar service call fee, and headed home. :(

    Maybe tomorow! :Dancing:

    Y'know, to some people I think anything yellowish, striped, and with a stinger all looks alike, and that's that.

    It's for sure honeybees, 'cause that's all you will come out for. If it's not, then maybe you will do something anyway since you are already here.
