Question:
We have what looks like bald faced hornets girdling our white birch trees. They are stripping the bark from them. We have not found a nest for the bees. We have sprayed wasp and hornet killer on them repeatedly to no avail. What else can we do before we lose our trees completely.


Replies:
A rag soaked with ammonia...you will need to soak it now and then as it evaporates.
