Well every last one of them plus a few thousand they picked up along the way are now here. I'll try and send them to someone else.

Haven't seen many this year...dryer weather will help them allot,.. but I'm not prying for rain right now. Hopefully you have no nest near you.

Beegood ~ I suggest you post a help wanted on the pests forum. I can't remember how I did the wasp trap thing 2 summers ago but I think it involved a banana peel and beer or something. It at least cut down on the amount of them.

This is the basic recipe for that trap only I have heard it made it made with beer instead of sugar water. I think you can also use any sweet pop.
