My biggest tip?
A one time mow........ lady told me about "a place in her back yard that has some bee like things." Turned out it was 3 yellow jacket nests all within about 5 feet of each other. Never seen anything like it. They were constantly flying in and out of those holes, and I couldn't get within in 10 feet of them. I went back that night with 2 gallons of gas and took care of those critters. They would have eaten me up if she hadn't "tipped" me about them.
