I mowed yesterday, in our front but side yard, side to the house, the skunks dug a hole. Right near a tree that I circle to cut the grass. Seeing the hole, I stopped and watched. Out come the yellow jackets, tons of them. Around the nest were pieces of comb that the brood was in. If the skunk had not dug it up I could have been in trouble, mostly likely would have been in trouble as those stinging suckers swarmed out to get me. We need to get some wasp spray. The comb the skunk dug up You can see all of the tunnels they have made The red points to a piece of comb under the dirt and tunnels they are crawling out of.
