I don't know if it was because of the mild winter we had in the northeast last year or what, but I have never seen so many wasps building nests around my place as this summer. This afternoon I counted five different nests in progress on my house. One on the east wall under the peak of the roof, one on the south wall in a corner between a window and a side of the deck, two under the clean-out door of a chimney on the west side of the place, and one on the north wall over the kitchen window. So pretty much the place is surrounded. I had taken a nest from the hinge area of my car last week,and my mechanic took one from underneath the hood of the car on Friday. They're everywhere. We're trying to get ready to paint, so our prep work and the efforts of the wasps are quite at odds. Although I'd usually just ignore them, we have to get this work done and can't be risking stings as we move our ladders around. So these buzzy little guys are about one cool, cloudy morning and a spray-can from going to the next level. I feel sorry about doing away with them, but they sure overplayed their hand this year.
