Isn't that CUTE? All the little wasps love our house and our hospitality so much, that they came back and brought their babies. See them inside the nest? The BEST part of it is the fact that it's impossible to reach the nest from outside with a ladder - it's too high because of a hill/deck placement. This is what it looked like after many sprayings with insecticide. D thought he'd open the window quickly to remove the nest, and that's when we discovered there's really no way to do it because the top window doesn't open. He took a stick between the window panes and kind of smashed the nest up. Then he vacuumed it. Well, that was our afternoon, pretty much. D went poison shopping, spraying, jumping and smashing... I had hoped that the inside window would open and we could knock the nest into a pickle jar, poke a few holes in the lid and watch the wasps hatch. You know, to make this an even MORE interesting homeschool blog. But to get it out of the window area without opening the window meant the nest looked more like a pancake than a thing of beauty (to be admired from afar).
