Kerosene is cheaper and does the same thing. Same with Isopropyl Alcohol.

Just wanted to give an update.. I went out one late evening last week and poured a cup full in and around the hole... It lightly rained overnight and I went out next day to check and it was still there covering the hole ... No activity at all... I cut the grass the next day and didn't have one problem... Im guessing it worked unless they were trapped in there... Well two days ago I noticed my yard was all tore up in the area and went out and something had dug a hole there about a foot deep... Must of been going for honey possibly.. But you could see pieces of a hive all shredded... Now I have a foot deep hole but the bees are gone

Bear most likely. Or a neighbor that was waiting for you to kill off the suckers.

Yellow jackets don't make honey.
