Cat entertainment: for some reason within the past week the house has had a wasp problem, (I suspect there's a nest inside the chimney.) so we and the cats have been killing wasps. All our other animals have always been afraid of the flyswatter. (Even though we don't beat them with it, from the way they act, you'd think we did.) I think it's the loud noise it makes when you hit a fly or whatever with it. Jack is the only one who isn't afraid of it. When I'm using it, he tries to get as close as possible like he really enjoys watching me kill wasps with it.

We had a yellow jacket nest in the sidewalk to our front door. Hubby tried poisoning them twice, kicking up my migraines both times. I didn't work.

Intense research on the web found a solution: the vacuum. The recommended procedure is to put a few inches of soapy water into a shop vac and place the hose within a few inches of the opening where the wasps come and go from. Run the shop vac morning and evening for an hour each day until done. In theory, it should take a week. It took us three weeks, though most of the wasps were gone after one.
