Forgotten, But Not Gone

Drats.

They live!
Those are a couple of the 5 gazillion yellow jackets residing beside the back steps.

I'm trying a Cranberry Chutney candle next time.

Cover your entire body (including goggles. The go out there with some serious bug killer and a shovel. Take that nest out like you mean it. It will be worth it.

P.S. Please have your wife or one of the kids take video of this (from the safety of the house) to post on YouTube.

Before I understood the term "environmental hazard" the way I got rid of the bees nest below ground was to pour a mason jar of gasoline down the whole in the middle of the night.

The nest was no longer a problem. Nothing grew in that spot for a few years, though.

Hole, not whole - sheesh.

Scott,

I agree with big doofus. Fun times! If the bats return you should also take that video, lol.

Just wanted to let you know I'm handing out awards to my fave blogs. You're one of them, so go on over to my blog and pick it up. :)

Blessings,
Tyler

I second the gasoline. I've had to pour kerosene down a yellow jacket nest because I don't like seeing my hubby having to use his epi-pen.
