  • They were making plans about you after watching ZOO last night...

  • Hmmm, I was nice to them so maybe I won't get eaten?

  • My brother has to carry an epi pen with him. I expect I will eventually have the same issue but with as much antihistamines as I take for my allergies, I may not have a life threatening reaction when the time comes.

  • Looks like a Dirt Dobber (or mud wasp to city folk). This is the only wasp I will not kill.There diet consist of spiders, and I don't like spiders. More power to them !!!!

  • Probably was a DD but I never knew they could communicate through glass.

    We have a paper wasp in our T-G box. I remove the nest each year and it comes back each year. I've left them this time unless they start coming after us.

    The only things we usually kill are blood sucking like ticks, fleas and of course chiggers, if we can find'em. We don't have a roach problem (knock,knock) but they would be another one that gets dispatched.

    Back in the '60's we had a different type of roach all around us but never had to dispatch them either. :-)

  • Had a few of those recyclable "roaches" myself back in the day. They mostly came around when listening to Zeppelin or The Stones. They were also prevalent around back of most honky-tonks when a good band was playing. (or a bad one) lol
