You need incendiary bullets for taking down wasp nests, laugh.gif


So wait, did you drive up to the nest in the 'Cavator and whack it down? Does the 'Cavator have glass windows? Did the wasps swarm it? How did you keep from being stung?


We need more details, man! tongue.gif

Yes, door and window was shut and I even closed the fan holes in the cabin. And then I just did what you guessed; drove up and gave it a whack, then I smashed it open and drove off biggrin.gif

OMG, I would have been scared to death!


mirocu
Yeah, I didn´t want to hang around so I parked it in the garage.

But the wasps didn´t care much for the cabin, they merely flew around the bucket a bit but never followed when I got out of there.


Think I´m gonna get Dad to remove the houses later as he´s not allergic.

I found out from the inspector that was here yesterday that all the little cone-shaped holes that I've been seeing in the back yard are ground bees = explaining why my dog doesn't want to do her business in the back yard anymore. Urk.

What do I do about that? Anyone know?

Concrete.

I meant make a parking lot out of your backyard laugh.gif



I don´t know. Call professional exterminators, maybe? Might be worth it if it´s as bad as you say.

I actually did want to make a cement slab right where these bees are nesting in the ground; make a nice little patio there with maybe a hot tub on it and some lattice for privacy. But unfortunately; that is out of the question financially without a nice Mirocu bird living nearby with a 'Cavator who enjoys making driveways for neighbors, laugh.gif

Exterminators = they won't deal with bees here, and if you have a large bee population you can't even get them to come out to your house till you take care of it, laugh.gif

I'm going to try sprinkling borax around the holes, or maybe garlic powder.

MALX, before you use the garlic powder, see if they fly around during the day. If so, they're not vampire bees. At least I think so, but DE would know for sure.

On nother note, can anyone recommend another picture storing site? Imgur has done an "improvement" and now I can´t properly upload my pixies and put them in the correct album. Have sent a complaint but I reckon as with the feedback at Bethsoft it´ll be ignored.

I found out from the inspector that was here yesterday that all the little cone-shaped holes that I've been seeing in the back yard are ground bees = explaining why my dog doesn't want to do her business in the back yard anymore. Urk.

What do I do about that? Anyone know?


Ground bees are non-aggressive pollinators, and they only nest during spring/early summer so they should leave of their own accord soon. Watering the area regularly apparently encourages them to move on if you want them out sooner rather than later.

You could also see about contacting a beekeeper to come and remove them, or a vampire hunter if they are indeed bees of the night biggrin.gif

Only one I've used was photobucket, and that was some time ago.

Come to think of it, I´ve seen ground bees at the cottage too. But I ignore them as they seem quite non-hostile as hazmick said.

Well, I gotta split. Laptop battery's running down, and it's too hot in here to charge it while using it.

It was, until someone sprinkled ground bees over it.

Okay, whatever is building those ground nests is not bees; because I just covered the nests with borax and didn't see a single bee out there the whole time! So whatever it is; it builds nests the same way ground bees do, but the hole is much smaller that they go in and out of and they didn't act disturbed at all when I poured the borax in the nest holes. (meaning they are probably deep down in a tunnel, not near the surface entrance)

I hope to heck this is not termites or something; because it is right up alongside the house.

Also, in the middle of a bunch of the small holes was one huge hole; like for a fairly large snake or something. (I put almost half a box of borax into it)


I HATE BUGS AND SNAKES !!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe you have a vampire gopher, too! Use whole garlic for those.

Thanks, Hazmick! I'm really not sure if it is bees; I think the inspector was wrong. I didn't see a single bee out there in the yard while out.

I mean, I know we have a nest of bees on our deck, but I don't think these were bees making these holes in the ground. It looks like ground bee nests with the cone of dirt; but the hole is very tiny; and they must go very deep because it didn't disturb anything when I sprinkled borax on them. And the big hole by the house was most def deep. That one looked like a snake hole though...except it was in the center of a bunch of the little holes. Urk.

SPEW !!! With my luck I'll just end up with a gopher with bad breath, laugh.gif

But wait, the "snake" hole wasn't big enough for a gopher! That would be a snake the size of an anaconda! It was more like the diameter of a cucumber or something. And not one of those obscenely large cucumbers; just a regular one.

Cats get freaked out by vampires or cucumbers? Or only vampire cucumbers? My cat gets freaked out if you wear a dress instead of jeans; or go into a room he doesn't think you should be in.

Oooookey, so evicting the wasps was not as good an idea as I thought. Now they´re basically everywhere around the cottage and in the outhouses wacko.gif


Thankfully Dad was up today and did a raid and he killed a few apart from spraying some poison foam here and there. I couldn´t have done it becasue if they sting me I might attract a slight case of death.

Oh no! So in the future, you won't do anything like this again, right? laugh.gif


Your poor Dad! Tell him to sprinkle garlic powder around or burn citronella candles and the bees will leave his property and go somewhere less offensive.






mirocu
Don´t think we have vampire wasps over here but one can´t be too careful, right? tongue.gif


Where I did wrong was, I should have done it in the fall instead when they´re about to die off anyway. Then they wouldn´t go look for a new place to stay. Oh, well. Live and learn kvleft.gif

I've heard garlic powder kills them on contact; so if you have a fogger fill it with garlic powder and "fog" them away. What doesn't die will leave from the offensive odor of the garlic.


... (and then let me know if it works and I'll try it on my deck!) laugh.gif







mirocu
Dad did a raid yesterday afternoon and evening and got rid of most nuisances, though not without getting stung. Continued today and we killed and disturbed most who are still there. At the very least it´s much better now and I´m actually able to walk to/from the car instead of running tongue.gif


Will do another raid this evening but don´t tell them about it! emot-ninja1.gif

Mirocu, can't you just use a fire spell? Seems like that would work well on both regular and vampire wasps. Using careful short bursts should be lethal on wasps while limiting collateral damage.

I thought perhaps a frost spell might be helpful to slow or even freeze them but I'm concerned that, given where you live, they might be Nordic wasps and have high frost resistance.
