Untrained and unlicensed natural acupuncture! WASPS!!

It seems that there are always uninvited guests that know how to ruin a good picnic. 

floating wasp eggsAs near as I can tell they rank right up there with rats and mosquitoes.  I am equally sure that in the “big picture” they do serve some useful purpose as food to other species on the planet---just not humans.

Recently some of these uninvited guests, yellow jackets, had the nerve to move into our compost bin.  Turning this into their home made it problematic to do anything near the compost bin, so a decision was made to “un-invite” them.  Not wanting to use “Raid” on the environment, I immediately thought of “Jerry the Bee Guy.” 

Jerry has a very cool business removing unwanted stinging insects when they establish nests where they are not welcome.

When he showed up, he got out his vacuum cleaner and a bucket of soapy water and set to work.

In a few minutes they were all sucked up and the queen, her eggs and nest were either in the vacuum or in the soapy water---soon to be food for his chickens.  I guess they serve a useful purpose in the universe after all.

Jerry the Bee Guy can help you keep your picnic or home free of unwanted guests too.  I am not sure if this service exists in other parts of the country, but if you live in the Seattle area, just give Jerry the Bee Guy a call---unless of course you are into untrained, unlicensed natural acupuncture.
