April in the Chicago area has been cold. Sometimes being early, or too early, can be deadly. The wasps in my backyard grill found out the hard way. They welcomed Spring but Spring wasn’t so cordial.
Before taking the grill out for scrap I decided to get rid of what I knew would be a wasp nest, I just didn’t think it would be in business quite yet. Last Summer I saw the wasps going in and out of our disused grill and knew I would have to do something during the Spring to get rid of the wasps. Nature already did the job for me.
