    Apparently, they weren't impressed so they returned.

    So I served them with a quick squirt of Raid! And took care of the problem permanently.

    And a post-eviction photo reveals a family was on the way.

    Normally I leave such things alone but they were right beside the back door.

    Good pics! I hate to see them at the hummingbird feeder while the hummers are hovering around waiting for a meal.

    In the pictures they look huge. Are they really that big or is it a fluke of the picture?

    I get lots of wasps (yellow jackets) here. Mostly I just knock down the nests. I know there has to be at least 1 nest in the house, but haven't found it in 15 years. So I have to evict a few during the winter.

    Imp- the neighbors will even ask me get rid of their nests.

    Sounds good. I have a couple of empty birdcages here.

    Ewww! Look at that stinger!!!
    Spray the wasp nest with raid and leave it up there.... i THINK it will prevent any other wasps from nesting there if they see there is already a nest in the area....
