Some good news. The landlord sent a letter informing us of the lease terms and the rent is only going up 50 bucks. (Which is about 250 less then what I was worried he'd try to raise it.) And he's going to be doing some work on the outside of the house. It does me though that we have to sign a lease, but seeing as I thought we were under one anyhow it's not that big of a deal. And I do need more time before I can buy anything of my own.
So, have y'all solved my yeller jacket problem yet? Who is sending the nukes?
Ok fermi... I actually just read 3 yellow jacket problem solvers...
One... get some Sevin-5 dust and sprinkle it around/on their hole (if you know where the hole's at, and it sounds like you do). He said Sevin 10 was better, but didn't think they made it anymore...
Two... get a gallon jug of some sort. Put a little gasoline in the jug and lay it on it's side next to the nest/hole. Then from a distance, tap on the jug with a long stick and the little bastiches will fly out of their hole and into the jug, get high on fumes and never come out. Keep tapping until their nest is tapped out... (tee hee)
Three... get a number 10 steel can (I'm guessing it's a paint can). Get a stick long enough to jam the bail up. Then take a small piece of meat and tie it to the top of the bail and hang it down into the can. Fill the bottom of the can up with water and add a little oil (I don't think it's motor oil, rather cooking oil) to the top of the water so that it sits as a layer on top of the water. Fill with more water until the water/oil is just right below the hanging meat. Probably about 1/8th of an inch. Very important not to let the oil or water touch the meat. The yellow jackets will come from all around to try to eat the meat, get coated in oil and drown in the water. She claimed all you have to do after that is wait until the live yellow jackets start walking on the pile of dead ones to the point it doesn't work anymore... then clean out the dead ones and start with a new batch of water/oil.

Weaned my calves the other day and was processing them yesterday afternoon (that means we were giving them their vaccinations). A very nice 700lb steer flew into the chute as fast as any calf I've ever seen and slammed into the front of it at full velocity, breaking his back and paralyzing him from the mid back on...
Spent the afternoon today... erm... well... butchering him and trying to salvage the meat. Big loss with the price of calves as high as they are right now...

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
