Also, will they "catch on" to the fact that the food is killing their colony and stop feeding?
Yellow jackets are not known to build resistance to insecticides. Also, they really would not be able to catch on to what is happening because those yellow jackets that have already vistited the stations would be killed as would their nest mates. New yellow jackets in the area would visit as their foraging behaviors dictate. There are several species of yellow jackets that are not scavengers and would not be attracted to the stations.
