It is that time of year when the bees and wasps are starting to look for lodging. That small paper wasp nest that formed in the spring time as grown to the size of a small city by now and yikes, they don't want you coming near them. When I say wasps, I mean one of the seven types of common wasps that can be a nuisance. Yellow Jackets, paper wasps, mud dauber wasps, hornets, potter wasps and pollen wasps, are all out making homes. Some are much more hot tempered than others, and they can cause some problems, so it is important to carefully consider whether you want to try to kill them yourself or hire a professional. There are many wasp and hornet sprays on the market that you can buy. Some are good and some are bad. What you don't want to do is buy a bad one, unless you can run like Forest. Some things to think about is how close is the nest and how large is it. If you have to climb a ladder and contort your body into a pretzel to get to a hornets nest the size of a basketball, you may want to call the pros. If it is a nest that is eye level and easy enough to get to, and there aren't a half million wasps living in the nest, then you may want to save the money and try it yourself. Whatever you do...be careful!
