Is fear going to win?

Friday, September 28, 2012

Oh man did I face my fears today! Under my mobile home there is the water shut off and an electrical outlet. By this spot the wasps took over! Am I afraid of them? oh YES I AM! I got stung last year on my arm and it swelled up like a tennis ball! My brother has to have shots if he gets stung.. My husband sprayed them twice and huge amounts of them fell to the ground. He said they are really up into the insulation. Ok, i got the bright idea (when hubby was gone) to go get em and get them gone! I googled how to get rid of them. I found some black clothes. I watched the spot for a couple of minutes and they didn't swarm from a save distance away and then moved within 2 feet. opened the small door and had my wasp spray in both hands. I went in with both cans spraying. I waited for 20 minutes and they started flying again. I got close and listened to the wasps oh man are they mad. They are in the insulation around the electric outlet. I got a large knife and cut two holes into it and sat back for a bit and got the spay and let them have a shot on both sides. Oh man did a bunch slide out and hit the ground.. for good measure i spayed them too... ok now the adrenaline is running and still is as I type this!!! I just looked at the spot and see none flying! I hope this took care of it! For my next death deifying feat , I am going to face my angry husband when he hears what i did!

    Glad you faced your fears. I'm sure your hubby will be glad he doesn't have to face them. I just hope the insulation you sprayed does cause the fumes to wick into your home as that stuff is toxic (not to give you another fear ....)

    Glad you did not let the fear win. It just lets you know that you can over come any fear that you have. Great job emoticon
