So i saw a lot of yllow jackets going in and iout from under the house naer the door. I claled an exterminator and he came and sparyed them wtih something. He told me they probably wouldn't even wake up in the morning. Well he was right, they didn't wake up in the mornign. But it's been four days now and they still haven't woken up, I'm wondering if I should call himi back.

I'm sorry for the loss of your friends. A pile of rotting apples will bring a whole new group of little buddies to your door..

I have rarely been home for the last 2-3 months but when I came back I heard tales of these wasps of biblical proportions. Apparently they are terrorizing my roommates and until I saw a picture of one I did not believe they were as large as the stories told.

When I saw it... DAYUM!!!!!! The wasp itself is only probably 2 inches long but the stinger.... THE STINGER>>>>!!! I can't say in inches how long it was because it was cut off in the picture but I can compare it to a rhododendron leaf. In the picture the STINGER was the length of 1.5 rhododendron leaves before the pic was cut off. NO JOKE! I'm guessing it was at least 6 inches long.

I asked to get the photo emailed to me so I could post it but my roommate didn't do it... too much work for him...

Are you putting food in your compost?

Any food with protein, meat, fat, egg shells, etc attracts critters.
