Y is for Yellow Jackets

I used to be so nice. I was all about ignoring the wasps and the bees. I said "live and let live"...I told everyone that they wouldn't sting me because they knew that I planted a lot of flowers and they would leave me alone. If I did happen to get stung, it would hardly bother me...not so much anymore! Now I'm cranky and sore, it's all about ice and benadryl....what a drag.

Well...the party is officially over, for me...and for them. These little beasts have taken over the party barn! They're everywhere....and they're not very nice at all. Every time I go out there they dive-bomb me. As bad as I feel about this... desperate measures are called for.
Sorry Mr. MeanBug....it's party season and you're not paying the taxes on that barn...I am....consider yourself served with an eviction notice.

I would not want to be one of those yellow jackets. What's the saying? Hell hath no furry like a woman? (or something like that) Ha ha. Great post!

Go get'em Shell! I have a reaction when I get stung, they are mean and nasty. So, I say spray'em.

Make sure the insurance is current and burn the barn down.

I feel the same way. Bees have taken up residence in our house for the third time in about 15 years, and I am sick of them!

EEEK!! I couldn't look at the photo for more than a split second, so I'm just going to have to take everyone else's word that it is a great shot. LOL!

There's that old pane glass again! Lovely with that Yellow Jacket against it with the sun shining!
I'm so allergic to their sting - be careful cause they are meanies!

Poor yellow jacket doesn't know what is about to hit him. Must have been a hard picture to take.

OUCH! I hate those little critters! They used to CHASE me when I was a kid! My sister always said it was cuz I was so SWEET! I wished to be LESS sweet! I'd evict them too!

I have the address of a few people you could send them too. Do they have GPS?

Good luck.
