hornet den

hornet den

We have a new addition to our family. A nest of hornets. They aren't going anywhere. The dog knocked down the nest they had built under this bench. The bench I have to walk by very carefully now when I go in the back yard. Fred had the idea that he could spray them. Spray them with something used on car engines. Hello...these are hornets not carburators.

Anyway he sprayed, I had a fit--they are baby hornets afterall. Yes, I know they sting, but they just hatched and this is their home while they are in training. Well it sounded good enough for him, so he left them alone. It's been three weeks, and they don't appear to be going anywhere. There are 30 or 40 all hovering on the corner of this bench. I guess we'll keep them.
