Number 23 baby

I went over my chemical use records and ascertained that this was the 23rd wasp nest I'd destroyed using insecticide. This was another bald faced hornet nest, right next to a statue of a gorilla that kids love to climb all over.

It's actually pretty, though scary nonetheless.

Have you seen the fake picture on facebook of the guy with a giant hornet on a leash (string) as a pet?

I have. At first I was excited, then sad when he said he ripped its stinger out, then it all made sense when it turned out it was fake.

If you put up fake nests there every spring will it keep real wasps away?

Possibly--in that exact spot. I'll have to make a map of how close the 23 nests were scattered across the 72 acres of the zoo. I don't know how effective those fake nests are. They look like hornet nests to us, but who knows what they look like to the eyes of a hornet.
