I went out my back door today and noticed a wasp nest forming on the screen door. I’d seen the wasps before, but had no idea where their lair was. My first instinct was to take a broom and knock them down… Bad idea. I beat a quick retreat. What exactly is the correct procedure for removing a wasp nest?

I don’t have any pesticide laying around, so I checked for what I did have. The only thing I had that looked promising was a can of C02. I was crafty and snuck up on the nest, inverted the can, and hosed it down. Instant waspsicles. Problem solved.
