Hornets' nest in the side pocket; hired a gun to kill them. He had to get into a full bee suit, climb up a ladder and spray the daylights out of the infestation. Yellowjackets do have their place in the chain of things, but not within a straight shot of our deck door and the neighbor's windows. The bee guy said he'd had to deal with a huge yellow jacket nest earlier in the week, and had gotten stung several times despite having a suit on, so advised us to act while this nest was relatively small. Not four feet high and almost as big around, like the last one he'd destroyed. Also, the roof repair folks wouldn't go near the deck with the nest intact; fair enough.
Swell little family dinner, with fresh-caught salmon as the main course.
