I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

Too bad you had to dismantle it, they make great souvenirs. Of course the decaying brood would stink. That's probably why most people grab them in the winter.


I don't run across too many of those, they are cool.

The first thing the lady did that had me take it down was show me her epi pen. I asked if she would like to see the inside and she said if they are all dead. Sprayed at 5am and took it down at 3pm.

Very cool Irwin. I have not seen one of those since I was a kid back in Indiana. I remember my dad and uncle were tryign to get it down to take home but I dont think the wasp wanted them to. It was quite funny. Thanks for sharing the photo.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
