3. Hornets and Wasps
The last two weeks in our second floor. My son and family came back from vacation and opened their bedroom door to a bunch flying around their room. Thought they got all of them. She went to work, he went to sleep and was down here at 3:30 am with 3 stings while he was sleeping. I thought the darn things slept at night. We are down about 4 inches of rain this summer and I know that the hornets (yellowjackets) become meat eating this time of year just prior to breeding. I have been trying to find an exterminator with a ladder to spray and close up the hole they are using near the roof peak. So far no luck.

Meanwhile we had been all sleeping everywhere on the first floor until Her Highness decided that I couldn't take the baby over to my parents during the day sho she could sleep and she thought he was being too noisy here because I was spoiling him. (He was behaving normally.) It was just happening during her sleep cycle and she couldn't or wouldn't "get" it. He is a real mellow, happy baby. So she is at her mother's house for the week. She thought her brother who hasn't worked all summer would watch him while she slept. That lasted one day and he suddenly found a job. She is not hopeless she will get it eventually and we will work it out but it sure has been quite a stressful couple of weeks.

I'll check back to see if anyone has any good ideas on how to get rid of them.
