Problems with small shop
Problem, bumble bee's these little buggers are giving me a time ! They stand between me and my machining projects. So far I have tried a few market brands of of killers, good for a few days the it starts all over.Bit of a pain to be dive bombed while turning brass. Almost came down to .38 shot shells and lever action. But my dog is to close for that. Any Ideas !

Are they bumble bees or hornets/wasps/yellow jackets? Bumble bees are gentle, and only stick around flowers. Those others are usually aggressive and do not like loud noise or vibrations. Find their nest, and at the end of the day, sun down (when they all have come home), hit it with a can of wasp killer, the kind that shoots 30ft. Just hose it down, they will die on contact.
