We started noticing one or two hornets a day in the downstairs 'wreck' room. Then we saw three or four a day. Then there were a lot more.Kirsten and I happened to see one fly out of the carport when we were getting home, so we followed it to see where they were getting into the house. YIKES! There was a little gap in the wall, and of course they had found it. Tim sprayed wasp/hornet spray into the hole and within a couple of minutes, the downstairs was swarming!

As most things do with boys, the swatting and killing of the hornets became a game!  If you look closely, you can see cute little Emmy standing by the brown curtain watching the 'boys'.

I had no idea that hornets SMELLED LIKE ROTTING FISH. And so does their nest. Holy Heck that was a smell! Febreeze didn't even come close to 'eliminating' it!

In the aftermath, there are a lot of hornet guts splattered on the walls, floor and ceiling. ugh.
This is about 10 minutes into the 'fun'. I had to leave because of the gag-inducing smell.
