Yellow Jacket Nest near Playground

Asked August 26, 2013, 11:40 AM EDT

My daycare provider is looking for information about how to safely get rid of a yellow jacket nest near her playground. She doesn't want to use something that would be harmful to the kids or her dog. Any suggestions?

Great care must be taken when dealing with wasps, especially this time of year. They are more aggressive now as they are readying for winter. This is a very good article written by our entomologist at Michigan State University Extension. It should answer all of your questions.
