    Wasp sucking machine, um, sucks!

    From Gizmodo...

    If you spot a hole in the side of your house that a bunch of wasps are constantly going in and out of, obviously building a nest, what do you do? Do you get a can of Raid and spray it in there and hope you don't get stung? Do you just stay the hell away from where all those scary wasps are hanging out? Or do you build a homemade wasp sucking machine to get those bastards out? Personally, I'd go with option 2, but I'm happy to show you the awesome results of option 3.

    Hot damn, I have got to get one of those. My hatred for yellow jackets and other wasps has no bounds. I used to kill them by hand, then I decided to go high tech and use a bug zapper. My hope was that just by touching them, they would explode, but it didn't work that way. I essentially had to cook them. It's faster to kill them by hand! I was going to have my dad, an electrical engineer, design a better system that could explode a wasp, but then winter came and they all died off. So far, they haven't come back.

    I had hornets in my siding one year. I sprayed and they died. A few years later they had a nest in the ground under my patio. I sealed the hole and they die. This summer they lived in the side of my front porch. I left them alone and hoped they would keep salespeople away.

    Those are not Wasps, those are Hornets or Yellowjackets depending on where you live. Wasps are actually relatively benign, Hornets/Yellowjackets are definitely not. Their venom is chemically identical to rattlesnake venom.
    I like cats, I just can't finish a whole one by myself.
