    My grandpa turned me onto this sure-fire yellow jacket eliminator about 50 years ago when I was just a youngster. I've observed its efficiency in removing all the yellow jackets from our campsite in a matter of a single day and before the week was over the entire campground was free of these hostile pests that make camping and other outdoor activities miserable. This method is NON-TOXIC and for the most part pet and wildlife friendly due to the harmless components that are used to build the "system." There are quite a few commercial products on the market to eliminate...

    What's up with President Obama and his bizarre ability to attract insects like flies, bees and rodents? The latest was his press conference yesterday, when a fly landed just above his mouth. Previously, the president had to swat a fly away during an interview, and a similar instance occurred during a planned photo op in Iowa. Then he was swarmed by bees, and even had a rodent come running towards him during a presser in the Rose Garden.

    Children Transported To Hospital For Treatment SILVER SPRING, Md. -- As many as 15 adults and children are being treated for what authorities said was an attack by a swarm of yellow jackets on a Washington-area elementary school. Montgomery County Fire spokesman Pete Piringer said it happened shortly before noon at Montgomery Knolls Elementary School in Silver Spring. Officials said the children were walking in a wooded area with adults from their day-care center when they apparently moved a log, which turned out to be the nesting spot for the yellow jackets. That got the yellow jackets buzzing, and before...
