Hi friends!!

That’s a picture of wasps working on their hive, at my front door! Yikes! I don’t know what should I do about it. Help :D

Onto other news:

As a reminder, Google is shutting down Google Reader today. Many of you are subscribed to my blog and others via RSS using Google Reader. You will need to make the switch now before it’s too late. What are your options? Well, here are my two cents:

  • I highly recommend Feedly. It’s as easy as just a click of a button to integrate all your current Google Reader subscriptions into Feedly. The link I shared takes you directly to the how-tos.
  • If you are subscribed to our blog via email or any other readers, please note that this change will NOT effect your current subscriptions.

Alternatively, here’s a list of other Readers to help you in deciding which route you want to choose to migrate your current Google Reader RSS subscriptions before midnight. If you can’t decide just yet, download all your RSS data via Google Takeout.

We truly appreciate your readership and thank you so much for taking the time to make the change.

Hey Kiran, Smoke will help. Burn a piece of rag tied to a stick, right under the hive. The smoke will either kill or shoo them away. Then take care to discard the hive. Last week, our gardner did just that for a huge bee hive on the backyard mango tree. But cover yourself from head to toe before doing that!!!

I am with ambika. Again I ll just copy paste what I wrote in google+ in case others have the same problem.

You could use the dried stringy coconut outer shell, keep it in a old metal pot or clay pot, create a fire and throw in some church incense. Keep the pot under the wasps nest. They will fly away since smoke irritates them and that’s the time when you kick away the empty nest with a long wooden stick or similar. It always works and it’s the only way!

This is stunning, Kiran! Honestly, what a beautiful photo that nature composed for you ;)
Also, feedly is awesome. Switched a while back and I’m loving it.
