    been a bunch of buzz at the Compound as of late. finally figured out where the lil assholes were nesting. Nopostholio shot some brake cleaner at em but they laffed. so next day i showed up prepared for battle.

    here is the damage that NPHolio inflicted. now that their super structure was breached it was my turn to attack.

    Strong work.
    You should pin some of those dead ones up on the wall around the old nest so they know not to come back.

    It was in the newspaper box under the mailbox. Forkers came out in force when I grabbed the paper last night. Wonder if the delivery person got stung.

    Just had to do a second spray. As there were some still hanging around.

    Appears to be paper wasps. While not "nice", compared to yellowjackets they're pretty benign and easy to deal with.

    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    True, and I hated having to kill them as they are pollinators but they were in my mail/news box and acting aggressive. Last year I had some nesting in one of my horse shelters (12x12 with 2 open sides). All I did was walk into the shelter and they came at me in full force. I ran out of there as fast as I could but not before three of them got me, one in the face. It really surprised me because I coexist with them on my patio where they like to gather pollen from my herb garden. They are never a problem there but probably because it's out in the open and not near their nest.

    Those last 2 pics are weirdly pornographic. Maybe it's just me.

    Yeah Ice, don't go around whippin it out when you see a yellow jacket nest. That's a sure way to get stung on your peter, and trust me, you DO NOT want that to happen.

    Fine paper wasp. Not as bad, but still not welcome. I'll work on my entomology. Grumble grumble...

    Not exactly a semantic difference. Mess with a paper wasp nest and at most a dozen might attack you. Mess with a yellowjack nest and thousands will attack you.

    O-M-G! Tenacious f*ckers! Picked up my paper tonight, walked into the house with it under my arm, threw it on the counter and out crawled a wasp! I may have to go to the nuclear option.

    Iím surprized many of the health conscious people here are going chemical route. Who knows what theyíll say in ten years that stuff does to us. I like the idea of the foam for less backspray but still.
    Iíll certainly concede real yellow jackets are way more serious than paper wasps, but hereís a good visual of earwigs in a mailbox I just doused with 8-1 water to pinesol (can use full strength for more bang)
    I swear it knocks paper wasps right out of the air. Showed a couple good ol boys from Nawlins just yesterday and they were ready to duck and run.
    Knocked a nest right off their rafters onto the deck and stomped on it.
    If you have real yellow jackets and this doesnít work then sure go chemicals.
    Paper wasps are light hornet lite.
