What do you do with a yellow jacket nest inside a decorative bird house? Try stirring them up with the Bug-A-Salt gun, then whack 'em with an electric fly swatter. Moderate success is achieved! Here are my awesome and crazy neighbors Mitch and Greta in action!

Electric fly swatters are very cool and work well. They run about $8 and are available at places like Walmart and Harbor Freight periodically. One of my favorite useful "toys" is the Bug-A-Salt gun. It shoots a pinch of table salt like a mini-shotgun blast at all sorts of bugs. They run about $40 at bugasalt.com.
