Mix peanut butter with boric acid.
Mix in small batches about 50/50
Smear the mix into the hole (plugging it completely) where
the bee goes in and out .
When the bee tries to remove or eat the mix
it will begin to eat into his exoskeleton and
death will soon occur.
Boric acid is inexpensive and harmless to humans .
Same thing as borax.
