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.

Ooooh, goooood timing.
I am chasing one through the house right now, trying to keep the dogs from catching it first.

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.

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....
