Wasp worries

My walk-behind brush-cutter was waist-deep in weeds when I saw the first yellow jacket, on my wrist, then another, on my shin below my shorts.

  1. As someone who cut into a large wasps nest with an electric hedgecutter and ended up with a subcutaneous skin infection I empathize with your concern. However, I learned that when cutting brush and hedges and other places wasps (actually hornets and yellow jackets) like to hang out I wear long pants and long sleeves and a light jacket, just like my gandfather. No shorts and t-shirts. sometimes the old ways are best.
