this year seems to be a high count for
wasps/hornets. they were buzzing all over
the place out there today.
we have a lot of large rocks that they
like to build nests behind. the raccoons
come through every once in a while and pull
the nests out (and eat them :) ).
If you were allergic you would be sure. Of course, just because you were
okay the last time doesn't mean you won't stop breathing the next time
you get stung. Better buy an Epipen and keep it with the dead flashlights.
In the half century I've been alive, got
stung once. And that was when I was taking
apart a piece of machinery. I knew full well
it had active nest. Sprayed it with what I
had (ant and roach spray). Guess that doesn't
do much on wasps. Won't make that mistake again.
Not worth the $50 to buy an epi pen for an
event that's not happening again. (I hope!).
I hung my helmet on the bike's mirror this morning. When I came out from
work an went to put it on, a yellow jacket was checking it out for a
home. I'm glad I saw it. A wasp in a full face helmet isn't much fun.
The damn ticks are out too. Wasps I can mostly live with but a tick
drives me into a homicidal frenzy. I cut them in half and burn the pieces.
