Yeah I know, you're sick of the freaking wasps. Believe me, so am I. But I think victory is finally mine! And all thanks to duct tape. This morning there were more wasps in the trap and still some hovering around the access point so I wondered if they'd found a way in. So I added more duct tape to the t-shirt/duct tape combo and after an inital swarm I seem to finally have peace at my door.
No gasoline or explosives or toxic chemicals or hippy dippy concoctions, just good old fashioned duct tape. And a sticky wasp trap for the stragglers. I've seen a few random wasps buzzing around the yard but so far nobody coming or going from the access point. Hopefully by tomorrow they'll be totally gone.
In the meantime I put up a little barrier so no birds or dogs end up with sticky wasp trap stuck to them. Because if I still had Strummer he'd totally end up with sticky wasp trap stuck to him. In fact no way this would be enough barrier to keep Strummer out but for my current pack of Good Dogs this is fine.
Now, the question of the day is, do wasps make honey? The internet has mixed reviews on this question but I'm with the 2 sensible guys here.
