    I don't have chickens .....yet. But, I do have a little dog and a little boy that like to play in the garden. And I was wondering if there is anything I could plant that would keep yellow jackets away. I know they are supposed to be beneficial bugs as they eat other pests but, I think they are nasty lil things.
