I have a huge yellow jacket nest in the base of a tree that is next to my coop. The bees have been getting my birds and they are getting worse. My plan tonight was to go out with bees spray and a flash light to spray into the entrance of the nest. It looked like they covered the entrance over with dirt for the night. I started moving the dirt around with my foot to find a hole to spray a "little" bee killer in it. Long story short, I uncovered the whole thing, ****** them off, freaked out and sprayed a whole can in their direction. Now I'm worried that my birds will get sick from the spray tomorrow or even eat dead poison filled bees. What should I do? I was thinking of just blocking them from the area but its in the middle of their run.
