    Shot less than 50 bee killers at the wasp yesterday. Exactly what purpose do the paper wasp serve? Cannot think of a useful thing they do. Found a nest in my roll around tool box. May shoot some more today. Good hunting.

    You tube is your friend. Video by Mousetrap Monday on youtube is the best method I,ve seen to get rid of meat eating ground bees. He compares two commercial traps to a home made trap. Worth your time to watch.

    Have read of hair clippings from barber shop hung up in panty hose as a deterrent for deer, haven't tried it myself. Anything with a strong human scent sends them scurrying away here.
