If using a plug aerator, rake away soil plugs when you’re done

"The company’s FAQ page stresses that the Yellow Jacket can’t incapacitate someone the way a Taser does (which is by interrupting the nerve signals). Instead, the Yellow Jacket causes a burst of ‘mild to serious pain and definite discomfort’ to a localized part of the body. The current is also super bright and super loud. Basically, this thing is supposed to deter someone, and if that doesn’t work, scare them. But don’t expect it to render them helpless (that is, until Yellow Jacket releases its law enforcement model with twice the voltage and twice the amperage)."
