Do you ever kill bees and wasps with a bad mitten racket?

We have bees bad this year. DH was chasing them down and killing them with a bad mitten racket yesterday. I was laughing so hard.

  • No, but that is funny. I can so picture that in my head.

    The last two years we've had to get the house sprayed. Bad problems with bees and spiders, and I don't want to find out if my kids are allergic to them. My mother is, so it was a must to get our house sprayed.

  • I guess that's better than a can of wasp spray and a lighter - my husband's version of a homemade flame thrower.

  • Wasps like to hang around my front porch and I am highly allergic so I'm all for killing them. I don't mind honey bees but I would want the wood bees gone too.

  • No, but we DID have to exterminate a wasps' nest on the corner of our old house last summer. I don't remember the breed they call it now but it's the most aggressive breed of wasp and has yellow and black striping like a bee. My kids were 3 and 6 then, we HAD to keep them safe.

    Hubby got some of that DIY spray that sprays 20+feet and soaked the nest a few times until nothing went in or out for 24 hours.

    **Did a google search and they were the bald-faced hornets that we had to get rid of.

  • I don't normally laugh when we get rid of wasps. I shriek in terror.
