Your experience with ground wasps
I realize this is a little OT, but I'd like to get input from others who spend a lot of time in their gardens.
I just discovered a ground nest of yellow jackets (not bees). If they'll leave me alone, I'll leave them alone. BUT...
I've gotten stung a few times by ground wasps. It's always happened when I didn't realize I was near a nest. But I just read that they're extremely aggressive and will sometimes attack even after hearing distant loud noises (weed whackers, blowers, etc.).
I don't need to do any digging in that immediate area, but it's right next to a path where I'll be dragging the hose and using the leaf blower. There are a ton of them going in and out and I'm not about to risk being attacked by them.
