It was just one sting, and it’s still bothering me a little today, but no biggie guys. Yeah, I didn’t get chased by a swarm. I have two cans of wasp-icide ready to go later. :D

Wasps/hornets are the jackasses of the insect world.
AGREED!! My dad and I were chopping weeds on the hillside and chopped into an underground wasp nest. They weren't happy and came after us...... I'm glad the garage door was up and we ended up in the kitchen with just a few hangers on which we dispensed. Ouch!! They swarm and they sting multiple times..... :eek::eek:

We have a number of these wasp traps, which work pretty well. But the water/attractant eventually evaporates. I found you can get the attractant kit separately, so I just finished re-baiting the traps. Actually, we've not had many bugs up here yet this season. Of course, it just started to get into the 90s, so that might be changing.....

I’m just going to spray the crap out of them with raid (or whatever it is). This hive is underground and covered with a rock in a hole in my front yard. I inadvertently created a perfect home for them. Once they’re all dead, I’m going to pull up the rock and fill in the hole and then fix my yard. I think it’s a sinkhole from where my leeching field used to be (I’ve been on town sewer for 20 years, but this is suspicious). It’s either that or a hole from a tree that I don’t recall removing.

Hope the buggies don’t start showing up in your neck of the woods, Cougs.

Yeah, over a season we emptied a few jet-spray cans of wasp spray shooting up at our eaves when we were living in our place in Heron, Montana. Took care of wasps and all kinds of flying insects, which we had scads of.

Be careful when you think they're all dead and you remove that rock!

Underground wasp hives suck! Haven’t been stung in years, but got nailed today.
Ground bees are the worst. They are very aggressive and will chase you! I had a helper years ago that got lit up by several after running a lawn mower over their burrow! I went back later w/ a 1/2 gallon of gas, poured it into the hole and flicked a lit match on it. Dozens tried to get out but they didn't get far w/ their wings on fire!

So I'm driving home from work yesterday, flipping channels on FM radio and rock station was having a "throwback Tuesday" playlist. The DJ comes on and says, "First caller to correctly name the artist and song title of this next song will win tix to _____ concert" (I forget who it was) What was absolutely ridiculous about it was.....AS he was saying this, my truck's stereo display already had the name of the artist and song title of the upcoming tune in bold font right in front of me!! :cautious: Some "contest" huh? Lol

They taste better when you call them Jimmies and have them on an Ally’s donut.
As an honorary New Englander, I do call them Jimmies, although they were sprinkles growing up in NY… And chocolate jimmies on vanilla or chocolate soft serve is yummy. As for pretty much every other type of jimmy (can I use the singular?) and every other application, I kind of agree with Cynthia and Tom! :)
