it would make sense to dump the water through your strainer then add the bees to your trash or ash can to be burned later that day.

I'm just hoping that last summer was an anomaly. I've been doing the Main Salmon for about 10-12 years, and while yellow jackets are always present, they've never been the horrendous swarms that people were describing last summer. I wasn't able to go last summer due to injury, but my group went in late June/earlyJuly, and they reported no swarms or issues with yellow jackets. The only time we've had issues was in 2007 when we floated thru the fires. The smoke made them aggressive, but didn't increase their numbers. Fingers crossed that last year was a fluke.

Would like to hear a report from someone who has gone down this year. I launch June 19th and may want to bring a large screen tent. Thanks in advance.

As far as killin em at your house goes, Mogur is 100% right. They go to the nest at night. Traps capture adults and this is a good thing, but if you want rid of em for a longer time spend a few hours with a note pad and record comings and goings thru the day. Most of the time they will reveal where the nest is in this way. Then come back at midnight and attack the little buggers with fire or poison or just squash em if that is practical. Whichever is appropriate to the location of the nest.
RE drunk bugs... we enjoyed watching them mop up the left overs in the margarita cans last summers GC trip.. They really do just sit there all night too drunk to fly home....
