I searched the site and could not find an answer for this. We just killed several wasp/yellow jacket nests with Terminix. We got it because it is "organic/natural."

The ingredients are: Geraniol [106-24-1], White mineral oil, 2-propanol, vanillin, triethyl citrate, isopropyl myristate, carbon dioxide.

I am just not knowledgeable enough about this stuff and now I have lots of dead yellow jackets around on the ground in my yard and I won't let the chickens out until I know they are picked up off the ground or safe for the birds if they decide to eat them.

Thanks in advance for shared knowledge!

I'm not sure, around our animals we always use some mint bee spray we get at a local hardware store. You might want to look up the ingredients individually and see if any are toxic.
