For the third time in two years, I've been stung by yellow jackets while mowing in the back yard. Little devils nest in small holes in the ground where I don't see them until all at once I feel their stings. The last two times they've ringed my ankles with stings. This time I had small blisters around the stings as well as painful, itchy and badly swollen ankles. I try to be a tolerant person but dagnabit, that hurts!!! And for a long time! It takes about a week before all is near normal and the swelling goes down.
So-- if a scarecrow will keep birds away, perhaps this will work for yellow jackets:
