Forgot how friggin fast I can run. Found 2 yellowjacket nests in 3 days

I look like Usain Bolt running downhill 0.0001 seconds after the first yellowjacket zips up into the air. My reaction time is crazy fast. But I like to add in the effects of frantically swinging my arms in a 360 degree circle around my body and swearing SHIT! SHIT! SHIT!

One got me right in the crease behind the knee. I can live with that given how precariously I was positioned when they initially swarmed out. To them it must have looked like I just disappeared, that's how fast I ran.

It's become a seasonal thing where I find and then eliminate 2 to 4 nests year. All yellowjackets were harmed in the making of this memory. One nest was drowned in a cheap $2 can of wasp spray from Lowes, the other nest just got a fluffy puff of night-night dust into the crevice of my siding. Little bastards.
