Update on the wasp situation

Well, I decided to talk to my supervisor today about the wasps. She is a community development worker, and I thought, if anyone knows anything about someone in the community that can help me, then she will. So I told her about the wasps when she picked me up.

She said as soon as we got to the office she’d ring the maintenance man that works for cork city partnership. So she did. He said we needed a professional, that it would be dangerous to allow just anyone to go near the wasps, in case they attacked.

She decided after talking to the maintenance guy, to ring the community warden, since I told her I’d rang the city council and there was no response from them. She got through to the warden, and she told her the council weren’t going to do anything about it, that it wasn’t up to them to actually do anything.

So then we went to mr. google. We googled pest control. And we found a local pest control place. I rang my neighbour and she offered to split the cost with me, if I got them to come out, since the problem is in her house also. So I rang the pest control place, the girl I spoke to said that a technician would call me back, but that it would be early next week before they could call me back.

Luckily I am not going to be home for the weekend, so that’s fine with me if I have to wait until next week. Their website says they deal with wasps, so I am hopeful they can handle it.

In the meantime, my neighbour said she has been researching, and she found some recipes online for natural ways to deter the wasps. So tomorrow she is going to go get the ingredients for one of the recipes, and make it, and try that in the meantime to see if it does anything. I gave her permission to also spray my windows, just in case it does anything, but I’m very doubtful that it will.

So that’s where things stand right now. I’m hoping by next week this whole mess will be sorted. I just want rid of the pesky buggers.

Wasp problem is getting worse!

Omg guys! My wasp issue seems to be getting worse! They are everywhere! All outside my window. My neighbour rang me this morning, she said she tried putting the fake nest up, they just kept landing on it. So that idea was a bust. She went out and bought powder, to try to deter them. So far it isnt working. We’ve been on to the local council again, no response from them. One girl that my neighbour spoke to told her it was our own responsibility to get rid of them, but thats not true. I rang them again today and left another message. My neighbour said two men did come out last week, and had a look, but they didnt do anything to fix the problem.
I am so so nervous! I dont really want to go outside unless its absolutely necessary!
This is no way to live!
I seriously hope we can get something done soon about them!

I have visitors! Unwelcome ones at that!

Guys! I am ready to totally freak out, anyone up for a lodger? Some company and a long term visitor? hahaha! 😀
I came home today and what did I see? Or more to the point its what my mom saw as we walked in my gate?
Wasps! It looks like there might be a nest! Outside my bedroom window!
Omg! I am terrified guys! Terrified of all bugs, but especially of wasps and bees!
This is my worst nightmare come true!
I had this problem last year, but I thought they’d gone! I thought they’d disappeared! My neighbour said she heard that if you buy a fake nest, and put it near where they are, that they think its a real one and dont nest there any more! But well I am not sure if that actually works or not its just what she said! She said she’d try it and if it works she’d get one for me too!
But Omg! I am like, is this actually happening? Nooo! It cant be!
I just hope I can do something quickly to get rid of them! I dont want them there all summer! I cant open my window now in case they fly in!
I am planning on calling my local council, to see if someone will come out to fix this for me! But they’re so slow! You could ring them today and they may not return a call for days! I cant wait that long!
Anyone know anything about wasps nests? It doesnt actually look like a nest, but there were about 20 of them flying around by my window today, but when mom checked she couldnt see a nest of them, so I am hoping there isnt actually a huge nest of them there. maybe its just a few of them or well I dunno, I am just hoping!
I’m so scared guys! You cannot believe how petrified of wasps I am!
I am terrified! Pray for me if you pray that I can resolve this soon!

What if?

sitting here
living in fear
fear he’ll find me
if he does
what then?
what will he do?
what will be my fate?
silence as i sit
shiver and quiver
contemplate
my next move
and contemplate
his, too.

Heard on the radio

I’m listening to the radio. I’m listening to a talk show, from earlier in the week, I think its last friday. A mother is on talking about her 12 year old daughter and her friend, who were almost abducted on their way home from school a few days ago.
It is so scary! 5 foreign guys in their 20’s, and one guy in his 40’s approached them, the guys were in a car, and they beckoned the girls to get in. The girls knew not to, but they panicked, and luckily another man in a van came along and blocked the car and allowed the girls time to run off into a nearby store.
God knows what would have happened if he hadnt come along! The girls may have been seriously hurt, or even killed!
Whats the world coming to? Kids cant even walk a short distance home from school nowadays! Everywhere is so unsafe, nothing and no one is safe these days.
I really shouldnt be listening to such things before bed. Now I definitely wont sleep thinking about this.
