SEARCH AND DESTROY
I was on a mission this afternoon.
I did a couple of hours of tree and bush trimming using my handy Bahco hand saw.
This is a nifty little tool. It's really sharp and cuts through branches like a knife through butter.
I haven't given up on buying a pole pruner but this is doing the job and only cost $50.
I gradually cut back vegetation around where I suspected the wasp nest was.
Eventually I found it on the underside of a flax bush and a swarm of angry wasps came out to check me out. I retreated to the house and grabbed a can of insect spray and made a few running forays into the danger zone, giving a liberal spraying each time. After a while activity slowed down to the point where I was able to dislodge the nest using my very versatile Bahco with which I speared it and hurried down to the beach and crushed it with rocks.
I wonder if I'll get a medal?
