July 30: Yellow Jackets

My husband unwittingly discovered that yellow jackets are nesting in the upper part of our shed. We go in and out of the shed all the time, so we're finding it difficult to conceive how that many wasps could have moved in so quickly. In a single day, they've made the shed their own, angrily descending upon whomever tries to enter. Unfortunately, there's no way to reclaim our shed without killing the yellow jackets. Neither of us is willing to get stung repeatedly every time we go out there for the rest of the summer. And it's not like you can relocate a wasps' nest.

Sorry, wasps, your end
is near. We know you're only
doing what wasps do.

  1. The yellow jackets have been sprayed. Whether I got them all is a question that must wait till the light of day. Sorry, wasps.
