A Wasp Invasion!!!

It's true!!! We had an invasion of paper wasps at our house. Mom found two nests of wasps and our uncle found two! That's FOUR WASP NESTS kitties!!! Mom freaked out and said that was too much for her to deal with, especially when one nest was between the screen and the window. We liked to sit on the windowsill and watch the wasps move. We would swat at the glass and try to get at them. Mom was very afraid that the bugs would find a way to get into the house, too. She didn't want us to get stung, so she finally called an exterminator.

The bug guy came yesterday and sprayed all around the eaves of the house and the garage. So far it looks like that took care of the problem. Mom felt kind of bad about killing them because they weren't really bothering anyone. However, they were too close to invading our space so they had to go. The bug spray should keep the wasps from returning and rebuilding.

Mom and our uncle are going to see Glen Campbell in concert tonight. Mom is afraid it will make her sad. You see, she grew up listening to him and now he has Alzheimer's Disease. Some of his adult kids are in his band and they watch out for him. This is Glen's farewell tour. We hope she will have a good time and not cry!

Have a good weekend!

  1. Wasps are fun to watch! But FOUR nests?! I don't think that would be so much fun if they came inside!

  2. I am SO glad you got rid of the wasps. And my goodness..who can blame you for what you did.

    My mom would love to see Glen Campbell and yes, it's a tragedy what has happened to him and all the other souls who suffer the same thing.

  3. Wasp stings would not be fun so it's probably good that your mom got rid of them.

    Our mom also grew up listening to Glen Campbell.
