I know Wasp can be a pest, and will sting, but I try not to hurt them. We need our insects to keep our earth going. They sense if you are afraid of them, and also will attack you if they are building a nest. I try to give them their space. As long as they aren’t bothering me, I don’t bother them.

The Easter Bunny is due this weekend, and our weather is unsettled so far. cold one day, warm the next. Rain yesterday, and we sure did need the wet down. Snow in the mountains tonight and we have felt the chill all day. We can’t put away our coats yet. Hopefully, Easter wll be warm. We have yet to see.

Big plans for the Easter Bunny this year. Good weather, good food and hopefully good family fun are what’s in store for his visit to my part of the country.

As far as wasps go have you tried a wasp trap? Dont know about the states but you can buy them in Spain along with a bottle of wasp attractor, they do work. Moles.. you could try a vibrating deterrent that is dug into the lawn and makes a regular vibration that puts off the moles.. try looking it up on the net

WASPS- They love me.. got bitten last year and ended up in the emergency
They are again, hovering around, what would deter them from building a
nest. Had two nests cleaned up by professionals last year.. I was thinking, moth balls?, they love to go under my little deck and have taped up other crevices they occupied last year.

Hi Ronice. We just started a new series on pest control, and Shawn, our wildlife management specialist, will be answering this next month. In the meantime, some people suggest that moles hate moth balls or Juicy Fruit gum near their burrows. You can also try to trap them by placing a bucket inside one of their entrances. They’ll fall in, and you can release them elsewhere. I’m sure Shawn will have other suggestions. Keep an eye on our home and garden page.

Herfe in north centrel Texas we’ve been experiencing days of high winds, very chilly mornings and little rain. I wish the Easter Bunny would bring us a little rain, watering my garden against these high winds leaves me wetter than any April shower!

How do you get rid of moles in your garden and yard?

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
