My front yard has (had) 2 azalea bushes beside of a Juniper tree, and
while they looked good when I first moved here, they've grown into a
mess. So, I thought it would be good to remove the azalea bushes and
replace them with something smaller.
What I did NOT know, though, was that one of them has a yellow jackets
nest, either in the bush, or in a hole beneath it! I found this out
the hard way.
So, I have a 2-part question:
1. How can I get rid of yellow jackets without actually seeing the
next? I know that I can wait until winter for them to die out on their
own, but if I wait then I won't be able to put in other plants to
replace the bush. And of course, I don't exactly want to be working on
getting rid of this bush when it's 30 degrees outside! LOL
2. Is there an easier / better way to remove an azalea bush, other
than hitting each limb with a saw and then digging out the root? I've
already removed one, but that took about 4 hours!
