...I understand that they are part of God's creation but I have no desire to be around them or have them within a mile of me. So needless to say I freaked out when I saw this nasty hive at the highest point of our house.
And yes that is my brave husband who is afraid of heights on the top of my house.
With a broom and a can of wasp killer as weapons, he went in for the attack.
And just like that it was all over.
I was feeling pretty good about the bug situation after that. Earlier I had knocked down three other not so big wasp nests so I thought we had things under control.
I was driving home the other night and saw a very creepy, very large looking shadow on my driveway. I got out of the car and found a giant beetle taking a stroll on my driveway!
Clearly he is dead in this picture and missing a couple of legs. But look how huge he is! Aric captured him in a jar and he died a day later. I keep telling myself that he escaped from a South American mango shipment and that he was all alone. The rest of his clan is still in the rain forest of Ecuador wondering what happened to him...right?...because there is no way that a mutant beetle colony lives out here in my neck of the woods...right?...
