If you feel adventurous, get an acetylene torch
lighted near their nest at night. Then rattle the nest and they all swarm
out and fly through the torch. Using just acetylene, no Oxygen, will give
an incredibly bright light and they singe their wings as they fly through
it. Good way to get revenge if they got you during the day.
That cold night you had should have been
perfect. 40-45 F should be cold enough to make them pretty torpid.
Best time to do it would be just before sunrise, so they've had all
night to cool. Get some construction grade plastic trashbags if you're

Just had a lovely paper wasp nest in a corner apple tree
discover me before
I found them. Nailed me good. My wife used to
raise bees and says bees are
quiet at night and cool, just go out
with a plastic bag and capture the
nest! Lost a
bit of my nerve to just jump in with a can of gasoline or
or a bag. Any body know the temp they definitely shut down
other techniques of mass destruction?
last night folk
NE of here had 25F we came in just over freezing
first apple trees I grafted are heading for the 6 foot mark, what a kick
this is Mn.
