Yes, but how do you get their tiny legs apart?

Hah! My brain. It is teh awesome. Sometimes.

On the thinnest of hunches, I went Googling for a product I thought up. And, lo, and, behold, there it was plain as the mole on yer nose on my face.

Dearest Foot, I present to you, Critter Ridder from Havahart:

Also comes in a spray. From here (or pretty much anywhere else, really)

If it comes in a spray, you might consider loosening your grip.

That took just a second...:lol2:

...well, longer than a second...

Hornets...

Gravdigr 07-17-2014 04:31 PM

As a person who is interested in interesting stuff, that was pretty damn cool.

As a person who is allergic to bee stings, and such, fuck that shit, which way to the diesel fuel?

I take issue with White Faced Hornets not being aggressive, though. I had some work me over as a youth, take my wallet, and leave me for dead. It couldn't have been my fault, I was a lovely lad. My eyes were swollen shut for two days so I couldn't pick them out of a lineup.

Who told you White Faced Hornets weren't aggressive? They're the worst of the lot. You can't trust a' one of 'em.

When I posted I thought that statement was at the beginning of the video, but it was really at the youtube page...

I have learned that white-faced hornets are actually a type of yellow jacket. They are only found in North America. They are not aggressive unless their nest is disturbed.
My bad.

Grr. Something chewed through the spout of my plastic gasoline can that I've stored under the deck for the past 15 years. So I bought a fancy new one that met current regs and was pretty expensive. That just got chewed on too, as well as the gas tank on the lawn mower. I think it's the chipmunk that lives in the nearby hole. This is war. Pics won't be following, out of respect for the sensibilities of animal lovers here. Hatching a plan now. Trip to the hardware store planned for later in the day. (They seemed indifferent to the poison pellets I dropped down their holes.)

Very interesting insight into the nest.
Although one of the most interesting things for me was hearing someone give the word "nest" more than one syllable :p:

If you want a gas can, buy it on eBay and get the old style that doesn't meet current regs. Get one with the nipple on the other side from the spout.

The new ones absolutely suck. Trust me on this. If you don't trust me, ask the gallon of diesel fuel on the lawn under my oil tank.

Now you know how we feel when Brits use the word 'fire'.

;)

Hmm....I only hear one syllable. :confused:
