I mentioned my problem to my neighbor, Jim, and he offered to come to my rescue. He came over with another guy last night and went after the hornets. I knocked the nest down today. They are dead.

    I bet those neighbors had a good time fighting the hornets :D Boys (I know they’re men) love having an excuse to blow things up and/or kill them! :wave: You do have great neighbors Suzanne but that comes from being a great neighbor yourself. :wave:

    Good for you, it was nice of your neighbors to help. Yhe only good hornet is a dead hornet, may sure you watch that spot next year, it is a good place for a nest—for the hornets, but certainly not you.

    You better make sure that you have plenty of food and supplies on hand plus a big box of aluminum foil. That’s 2 hornet’s nests this year: one low and one high. Wears going to have a doozy of a bipolar winter!

    That was high up! Not sure the spray would have reached it without the ladder. You are blessed with good neighbors.

    Cousin Sheryl, I get the extra food but why the aluminum foil?

    I hate hornets. I’d much rather have wasps. They find their way inside the house once in a while and as long as they leave me alone and hang out near the window, I leave them alone. But 30 wasps in my bedroom would be too, too much. Gotta love that long stream spray and nice people to help you out with it.

    Glenda – just type “aluminum foil” into the search box to the right here on CITR. You will discover Suzanne’s obsession with aluminum foil. :lol: Funny read!

    Glenda, the post name is “Snowed Under, Send Aluminum Foil.” If anyone wants to know what to get Suzanne for Christmas, just give her the magic, silvery stuff ** FOIL ** hehehehe

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
