The Yellow Jackets are GONE!

Finally! I broke down and paid someone to come take care of them yesterday. I had a pile of about 45 that I had killed in my living room just in the morning hours! I went out there this morning and there is NO activity at all! The guy that came told me I had a large nest in the wall. No kidding!

And now we've moved back to ants. In my kitchen. Again. Because my house just must be so irresistible to little things like that. We had ten bats in our crawlspace in the spring and last year we had an issue with European Hornets (yep, they were THAT BIG!) in the crawlspace (and occasionally flying around the 2nd floor) as well. And the other night, as I lay in my bed, I hear something above me in the other crawlspace (what is it with crawlspaces?) and Jon and I decided it must be a mouse (I'm thinking positive here...don't rain on my parade and tell me where there is one there is more....!). So, I set traps last night and what did I find this morning? A missing trap. I'm not kidding.

I love my cape cod, but I HATE the crawlspaces!!
