Look What Hubby Found!

Summer is the time when all the creepy crawlies come out!
Such is the case at our house.

Look what Hubby found at the shed when we came home from our vacation!  I heard him outside taking the Cub Cadet off the trailer.  The next thing I heard was him running in the house, taking his clothes off as he ran!  I was finally able to get out of him that he had gotten into yellow jacket's nest!

We looked out the window and saw the yellow jackets swarming around the nest!  They had made a black cloud over their nest!  You could tell they were ticked off!!!

Once it got dark, Hubby went out with the old gas and tore into nest...

This nest was huge!!  It had to have been there for a couple of years.  It's a wonder and a blessing that none of us (especially the boys!) had gotten into the nest before now!  Where it was is right next to the house and where we walk by quite often!  We were all over this area when we were loading up for our trip!  I'm just happy that Hubby found it and not the boys--I don't enjoy ER visits!

This is the hole that the honeycombs were in...

Notice all the dead yellow jackets!  Ain't it a wonderful site!!

What can I say...As a Dawg fan (University of Georgia, for those of you that do not know what a Dawg fan is), it's in my blood to hate Yellow Jackets!!

I'll keep you informed of any other creepy crawlies!


  1. Oh my goodness! We just moved from FL to GA so it's been an adventure meeting all these new GA critters and creatures :) Thanks for stopping by my blog, you've got a new follower!

  2. I've never heard of yellow jackets - are they related to bees, if they make honeycombs?
