Shocking Outcome of Taking Down a Dead White Pine?
Behind our house, on a kind of ridge within falling range of our house and cars, stood this humongous dead white pine tree. It was tipped slightly in the wrong direction. In addition, there was this power line... The tree had to go.
A fellow volunteered to take it down for $100, which, frankly, was the limit of our fiscal ability. The day was set, the job was done. Some difficulty, but serious damage was avoided.
Yet, within days, we began to receive (and are receiving) unwelcome visitors. These visitors are fear-inspiring == both noisy and threatening in appearance. They are European Hornets! Check out the photo!
We have read up on them. If we can keep them at bay until cold weather, we should be good to go. We must keep lights off at night so they are not drawn to our house. Fortunately, they are not known to be terribly aggressive.
Still, would that fact comfort you if you heard this loud buzzing in your bedroom at night?
