This week, we were trimming trees and bushes. I went out back and was standing on the deck looking up at one of the trees we planned to trim. Oops, what is that I saw!!!! A huge nest we could not see when we were standing in the gate looking up.
Stan got the hose and started watering it down. (See my pretty new gate in the background)
It eventually disintegrated and fell down. Since then I found out that there are people who will remove them for free. Apparently they are able to sell them for medical research. Never heard of that, but my brothers showed me the ads in the papers. Well, if there is a next time I may call them. For now, the nest is down and the wasps are looking for a new home.
