Videos of the Week: A single yellowjacket sting can kill

Today's featured videos are actually two TV spots we created for the RESCUE! Yellowjacket Trap, featuring a testimonial told from both a husband's and wife's perspective. Greg Romey was working in the front yard when a single yellowjacket stung him on the ankle. He started feeling dizzy, his breathing became labored, and after a panicked ten-minute ride to the hospital, his heart stopped.

Our company president met Greg by chance at a youth basketball game. When Greg learned that the guy sitting next to him in the bleachers created the RESCUE! Yellowjacket Trap, he exclaimed, "Those things saved my life!" He proceeded to describe how that single yellowjacket sting had nearly killed him, and how the allergist who treated him afterwards recommended our product to keep them away from Greg.

We decided Greg's story had to be told, and that's what you'll see here in these two videos.

Video of the Week: Insect Smackdown!

To end the week, we have a series of videos of wasps, hornets and yellowjackets attacking other insects and a spider!

Here's a hornet attacking a cicada:

Here's the carnage after a yellowjacket mauled some sort of black wasp or fly:

And watch as this wasp attacks a large spider and drags it away:

The insect world is brutal, ain't it?

This is WHY he likes our traps

Happy customer Ron in Lyle, Washington e-mailed us recently to send us photos of our products at work: both the W*H*Y Trap for Wasps, Hornets & Yellowjackets and the RESCUE! Yellowjacket Trap.

Time to dump the bodies in this one -- there's no room for more to get in!

Side by side, both traps are working wondrously!
