Default Hornets have a good work ethic

On Monday, my wife discovered that we had a hornet's nest in a tree in
our front yard, about the size of a football. Lots of activity. She
wanted it gone, so I found in the basement a can of wasp/hornet
killer, read the label and went to work. I sprayed it 3-4 times
(running after each application). The can said wait 24 hours then
remove the nest. Well, my kids were having a good time watching me do
this and wanted me to cut down the small branch where the nest was. I
got out the ladder and limb cutter, gave it a snip and ran. The
hornets were understandably annoyed, but they wasted no time - about 2
minutes after I cut that limb, they had picked out a new spot just up
from where I had cut there branch and started on a new nest! I like
their enthusiasm.


P.S. I sprayed the new in-progress nest on Tuesday, will provide a
report later on the results.

Consider playing a loop of Billy Mays' screaming commercials. They will
probably go back to their country of origin.
