these little guys have made themselves a nice little home about 15 feet up in one of the enormous trees in my backyard. they haven't really been too much of a nusance up until now. they keep finding their way into my house when we open the back door, and rosco got stung by one this morning. i hate to eradicate such a useful part of nature, but they can be a bit scary to the kids and to small dogs with big tempers. maybe bugman can give me some clues??
