Ummm...

Kill me now. Because this is the outside of my house, and I am more scared of bees/wasps/hornets than any person you've ever met in your entire life.

Just getting this picture was terrifying.

**hurries back inside.

  3. Hmmmmmm......my husband usually just knocks them down with a broom and then runs. I would NOT recommend that. :)

  4. I empathise. Whilst bees and wasps don't frighten me (but I am seriously allergic to them) a big spider in the house would have me sleeping in the car until it was removed. You might have to get in pest control for these critters though.

  5. Ug I HATE bees and wasps...you can get sprays and stuff that are supposed to kill them i think though..i remember my dad mentioning that he'd had to use it

  6. I would be very careful... they look like hornets which are very aggressive. I am equally terrified of stinging flying things. I hope you get those removed!

  7. Have you tried a wasp catcher? They are glass and you put in a bit of sugar water. They go in from the bottom and get caught. I will leave some links so you have an idea what they look like.

  9. That looks like hornets to me. Get some wasp/hornet killer from the hardware store,and wait until an hour after sunset. The spray will go approximately 20 feet, so you won't have to stand near it. Spray well, and then look for activity the next day. If necessary, spray again (after dark, of course, as they are sleeping at that time).

  12. My brother works as a pest exterminator. He could get rid of those for you in 5 minutes. I bet it would be worth it to call in a professional.

  13. Oh crap! I am as scared as you, believe me! I would rather choke in the house with windows closed all summer (and winter)than risk a bee/wasp enter!!
    Get someone quick to come take that down and away from you!!

  18. The nests on my house are left alone if they are not in my path... be and let be... but I have removed nests myself as soon as the weather chills again. When it is cool outside, 50 degrees or so, they are lethargic and do not move. So I knock the nest into a bucket and take it to the adjacent field by my yard. Problem solved humanely.... no poisons, so eco friendly too.
