    I’m curious… your knowledge on wasps… besides researching on the
    internet or reading about Polistes… what are you looking to contribute
    with your video… In a sincere way… I’m interested… please write back

    I have a better way- Either and a lighter. I’m sorry, but i’m not going to
    keep hosing down a nest and risk getting stung. Constantly attacking a nest
    does nothing but make them more aggressive, so that if anybody walks by
    they will attack. I say kill em’ all. PERIOD

    1. chill man 2. killing them is easy, but they’re good for crops, essential
    really. 3. I’ve been working all around the wasps that are on my corn
    without trouble. I just draw the line at actually touching corn which may
    contain nests, and seek repulsion methods for harvest

    Should not be a problem.. Maybe where you live but here we have sometimes
    dozens of wasps outside near one table. Annoying. When you kill 150 of them
    another 15 will come to your table. We are constantly annoyed by them.
