    Last week I was stung by a Red Wasp. Yeah, it hurt and yeah, it pissed me off. I was forced to end my weeding and go inside.

    I have been planning my revenge every since. The high for Saturday is in the mid 40's. I will strike at 0800 hours. I want it to be light, so they an see who is killing them.

    If any of y'all are related to Red wasp or have close friends that are Red Wasp, you have until 0800 Saturday to advise your relations to evacuate my yard. Failure to comply will be dealt with in the strictest severity.

    Have a nice evening.:)

    I am very familiar with red wasp and yellow jackets, never heard of ginny. You have not lived till you have run over yellow jackets with a bush hog. I refuse to every do that again.

    I've seen a couple this week & they are barely flying. Mainly just holding onto something. The cold should do the rest of the trick this weekend.

    You go Della, dispatch them with extreme prejudice!
    I for one am behind your effort, way behind, but the only good wasp is a dead wasp.

    Good hunting and god speed.

    I don't know if this works for red wasps, but it worked like a champ for me for yellow jackets...

    I had a yellow jacket nest inside my siding, so I bought that stuff yoou can shoot from 20 feet... I couldn't see or get all the way inside the siding, so three attempts went for naught, though it made a dent...

    then, the little effers found a way into my house - at peak, I was getting 40-50 per day in my house...

    couldn't use that spray in the house, so I looked for an aletrnative method...

    get a quart spray bottle, add 4 tablespoons of dish soap, like Palmolive or Dawn - if you have a whole nest to do, use the ratio of 1 TBSP per 8 ounces of water in a bucket...

    then just zap them - knocks them to the ground, can't fly anymore, and they are dead within 30 seconds - works better than the commercial spray, no joke...

    She seems pretty pumped up about the upcoming battle. Yours is probably the better option but I believe she should keep fire and nuclear weapons as alternatives should her war take a turn for the worse.

    Hmmmmmm, might look into that.

    I was so mad when they stung me I was heading to get some gasoline and throw on them. My husband stopped me. Said, "gas was bad for the environment and i was getting a little crazy". I told him he knew that when he married me.

    He talked me into the cold weather approach. So, I have been biding my time. It is on for Saturday.

    gas is more fun, and more satisfying, but you probably don't want to incinerate your new husband...

    I'd suggest she film the skirmish . . . . but her insurance company might deny her claim when they see why nothing is left standing.

    That sounds good. I wanted to use "Zulu time" in my OP. But, I'm not even sure what Zulu time is and didn't feel like looking it up. But, it sounds militaristic.

    Zulu time today is Coordinated Universal Time. Back in my Navy days it was known as Greenwich Mean Time (based on the Prime Meridian). So yeah , it’s militaristic
