It Must Be SPRING!!!

Our favorite neighborhood skunk has come out of hibernation. This is what his/her activity of one night of grubbing on our front lawn looks like.

Does anybody have any suggestions to rid of this pox upon us, short of a .38 Special?

Thanks Mike

First Wasp of the Year

Found this guy bumping arounds on a window in my living room. Not surprised to find out it is a Polistes dominulus, which appears to be the primary wasp species around here, to the exclusion of other species.
