  •  Funny thing - last night I was dreaming about (5+ / 0-)

    a big wasp nest that I had at my old house.  We had it pinned up against a shed and were talking about when it had occupants.

    They like occupying the birdhouses I have in the yard, though it seems one group always nests inside my rain gauge.  They put down a nest so firmly that it no longer can move to measure rain.  I hate to go take care of them because that means getting on top of my sloping roof, prying off the cover, and hopefully spraying them so they can't charge me.  This year I was running around on the roof trying to get far enough away that they'd leave me alone.  I'd prefer to leave them be, but when they disable my system, that's my limit.
