We’ve always had a lot of yellow jacket activity around the shed — especially around that area I circled.
A couple of times over the summer I sprayed around there but I don’t like to get too close so it was probably not the best extermination technique.
After it froze, I went in with a flashlight and took a closer look and almost shuddered myself to unconsciousness. I knocked all this stuff down. A piece of the electrical connection on the outside light came off. I need to get back out there and sweep the last of it away.
No matter how dead the nests look, it still creeps me out beyond all logic to deal with those things.
