The weekly Daley: Unintended consequences, a true story

By From page A4 | August 22, 2014

Although I don’t barbecue all that often, when I do I like to be able to leave a platter of meat or oiled vegetables outside for a minute or two while I check the coals or do a last scrape of the grill. Too often though, in those couple of moments, meat bees or yellow jackets or whatever they are, swarm up from I don’t know where and want to share the bounty. I don’t like meat bees. I’ve been bitten a time or two, Georgette has been bitten a time or two with some pretty dramatic results and I’ve been plagued by them camping in the great outdoors more than once.
