A bit of wasp-love motivated web-ferreting finaly flushed this crazy contraption out of it's hole ...



If it works I'll eat my hat ...

Actualy, if it doesn't work you could probably turn it into a hat!

I thought the dripping water idea in the OP sounded pretty good. If this was an issue for me, I would give it strong consideration. Effect nest evacuation and remove nest... Hope they set up shop further away next time.

I thinks its the exact wasp equivilent of a baby Paul..It eats it excretes, it responds to painful stimuli.
I think sometimes we have to make hard choices.
In the early days of Samye Ling the original house had a rat problem.
Because people were staying and food was being prepared the local council served an order saying that the rats had to be removed..
Trungpa Rinpoche was deeply unhappy about the idea of killing the rats.
He went round the house putting pieces of paper with mantras written on them down all of the rat holes to encourage them to leave.
After a few weeks it was clear that it wasnt working.
Trungpa Rinpoche sighed and said to his secretary " I will say prayers for them..you phone Rentakill , this place needs to stay open ".

At the time Aloka he was still in the robe and didnt do either drugs or alcohol.
This was a few years before he went to the US. He was a clean cut kid, straight from graduating from Oxford.
