We are at War! Well we are at war with yellow jackets. Last week I was outside deadheading our perennials. I was pulling out the dead leaves from a day lily when a swarm of yellow jackets starting stinging me. I quickly ran away, but I had about 7 stings on my arm. I never knew yellow jackets could keep stinging you. It hurt for about 24 hours.
We have been squirting the nest with wasp killer but to no avail. So today we decided to try and dig up the nest that is in the ground under the lily. Well my husband starting digging and we found the nest but had to run back bc there were tons of yellow jackets. He got stung twice. (I told him to wear long pants).
Next plan of attack will be to remove the day lily at dark, and then pour lighter fluid on the nest and may even set it on fire. Do you have any other ideas to get rid of yellow jackets?
The scene of the crime!
Well have a lovely week…We are getting ready to spend the week with our 5 year old grandson! Hope to go flounder fishing, the beach & maybe setting up the tent?…Can’t wait!
Gearing up for Night in Venice Boat Parade on Saturday. Our theme will be “We Support the Troops.” I love Patriotic Parties! Also our daughter will be having a girl at the end of August…so soon I will be “on call” to help out! We had a great day yesterday with our dear friends.
