Wicked wasps, meet the Wasp Warrior

As you know, I am running in the Warrior Dash this Sunday. In preparation, I have been working on a costume.

Last year I suggested the possibility of making a bee/wasp inspired outfit (You can read the post if you would like to know the back story). So, I decided to channel my worst fear/enemy when creating my costume for the Warrior Dash. My friends, I am a Wasp Warrior! Continue reading

I have not gotten stung again, but I have had several close calls…I have been checking every crevice around the outside of the house for these predators. I continue to find large nests to spray. Even with the solace of the death-to-wasps jet sprayer, I’m like a scared child checking the closet for the bogey man. Continue reading
